    Love the Cyberx good news scoops like these. Coach Lue and Tilman forces WB on Morey not so much.

    One big vouch versus fifty three douchers. It can get you down.

    That he’s “saying there’s a chance” Iggy picks the Rockets is good news. I don’t see where we were ever mentioned before in the rumor mills, it has been the LA teams. But maybe we are being mentioned as buyout leverage since we have a lot of NT MLE left compared to the LA teams.

    We were mentioned long ago.

    Also let’s ignore the fact that he just took a shot at Harden on Twitter.

    We are so short on forwards that pretty much every player that gets bought out we will chase.

    If he gets bought out and signs with LA and then an article says we were also trying to sign him, that does not mean any credit is due. The OP says Iggy has narrowed it down to two teams. Now our inside sources not only know who our team is pursuing, but he knows exactly what’s going on in a player’s head before he even gets his buyout. Take your heads out of your asses.

    *Thats directed at the people who have a problem with me not buying these inside sources, not everyone

    Everyone knows the Rockets covet AI.... not as much as Tilman’s greedy grease palms cover money... but I digress.

    If he some how ends up on the Rockets, great... but I have assumed he was LA bound since the Warriors dumped him.

    Very smart basketball instincts.... but also a self entitled jackass that thinks he is a lot brighter than he really is.

    No offense, but he has had a lot of shots taken at him. After a point it’s hard not to get testy.

    i mean he always kills us in the playoffs so it would be worth to have just for that alone.

    Another Melo Situation. If we get him.. we get him... if not... then do not sweat it and move on.

    The only way that the Rockets get Iggy, is if the Lakers dont want him.

    If he comes here, i want the terms to be favorable to the org. Cheap, short, or TO: i feel like the contract should inlude at least two of these three.

    We all know he’ll be a Laker, no reason to get your hopes up.

    My early summer thoughts...
    Controversial players i wouldnt mind being rockets before the Westbrok signing:
    Westbrook
    D. Jordan
    P. George

    Longshot players that can ******* stay in cali:
    Iggy
    Draymond
    Klay

    *%***!***&***%* golden state

    I'm quite certain most of the naysayers are simple trolling you for a reaction, trying to get the batman to take off his mask...

    They now have 2 open spots unfortunately for us, 75/25 he's a Laker. I see no Houston/Iggy connection here whatsoever. Go back to Cali and win another ring with LeBron and Davis? Too good to pass up.
