    And? I’ve got some stuff of value in my closet that I’ll never use either.

    gotta love the bravado of our sports team owners...….. we say we want the Texans to fire BOB and they say I will raise you one and make him GM...
    we say that we need size in the front court... they say I will raise you one and get rid of the tallest player that plays routinely

    Personally I would go to the Bucks......and the East. Any top 3 team.

    It's easier, you can coast to the Finals. Just ask LerBon.

    I do not think Brooklyn can win it all, Kyrie and JHarden would butt heads.

    Harden makes bad choices, I can get that.

    Can someone sum up what draft picks we have left? From my calculations our next draft pick is in 2040.

    An anemic addition if that happens. Better than nothing.

    We need to get a 7 footer that can make 3 pointers. Thon Maker (who is making 3 mil) can make 3s and would be perfect in this system. He sucks on the the Detroit Pistons because they don't know how to use him and they suck as a team all together. DMo is available now that China has a plague going on there. He can is an even better choice for the Rockets because we wouldn't have to pay him much. He can make 3s, pass, and get us some rebounds. Also DMo has some post moves. Nobody would see this guy coming.

    I like that, but we need more defense and shooting too.

    Honestly I'm hoping Daryl can get Jahlil Okafor from the pels, he's buried at the end of the bench after having an incredible resurgence last season, dude was a walking 20 and 10 and he is so damn skilled. Dude's making under 2 mil so it would still satisfy the luxury tax savings plus there would still be money available for potential buyouts

    I like that we got Jordan Bell in this deal. Definitely need all of the depth/height/athleticism that we can get our hands on to see who can carve out minutes. Obviously still need another rotation worthy big. What is Joakim Noah up to these days?

    Do you remember that when we released Brandan Wright because he couldn’t get healthy they said he would still be rehabbing with the team and trying to get back.

    Welp. You feeling better?

    Rockets have opportunity to take back salary in Westbrook trade: NOPE
    Rockets had 8 trade exceptions: All about to go unused/EXPIRED
    Rockets have opportunity to take back $12M in Covington trade: TBD (Probably not)

    “God damnit. Look I told Daryl I would pay the tax. I am a very wealthy man. Daryl and Mike didn’t want to go into the tax. I begged them to spend my money. They were adamant not to. So blame them. I tell you what, come into my restaurant on your birthday and I will give you a free brownie. Make sure you report it isn’t my fault. Not a shut up and listen, I have to go. I have a 60 year Mexican dishwasher to fire and then off to my yacht. Chow! Eat at Landry’s!!”

    Don't know why I am posting this, there is no way Tilman is going over the tax, but

    If we can get Tristan Thompson on a buyout, thats probably a win.

    Wtf why would we trade a an athletic center that can’t shoot and redundant with WB to get an even worse one in terms of shooting and spacing. NOT to mention ego can’t be traded, so I’d say you calm down lol.
