    Thank you Morey for having done such a excellent work during the summer:

    Asik - the big guy is outplaying his contract in a big way. love his hustle, love his defense, love his improving offensive game. i am glad we have this guy locked up for 3 years

    Harden - a top 5 SG right now and is only 23 years old. i am so excited we got this guy locked up for 5 years. oh, lamb is sent to d-league, obviously he is not the ROY as some homers here thought he would be

    Lin - if he can keep up with his current play i say he is worth his contract (maybe slightly overpaid). Trouble is JLIN has a big potential upside as well as a big potential downside, but i am very interested to see how this plays out

    With these signing over the summer, we really have a good core, young players who are also locked up for the next 3 - 5 years AND WE HAVE THE CAP ROOM TO SIGN ANOTHER MAX PLAYER!

    All thanks to Morey and Rockets' front office

    I agree with everything you said but Lin. Morey has done a great job. Lin has got to do better.

    Let's not forget Parsons. Need to leave room for his contract in two years. Rockets got a bargin in him now but they can't underpay him for ever.

    I trust Morey and Alexander will have ample cash set aside for the Parsons fund. He keeps playing like this, or even improving, he'll be set for multiple lifetimes easily. So glad to have him.

    Future rankings 2014 - 2018 in the West???....

    #1 OKC
    #2 LAL??
    #3 - #8 ????


    I think the Rockets are setup to possibly be a top 5 team in the West in 2 or 3 years for 3 to 5 years at least with one or two upgrades either on the roster or by trade, and further growth by the players that already foundation pieces of the roster.

    9th team in the West possibly just this year, but they are only going to get much, much better in 2 or 3 years. The ceiling of the team the past 3 years has been the 7th or 8th seed, and first round exit of the playoffs. This team in two or three years could be a contending team going deep into the playoffs.

    A few things need to happen first, and Harden/Asik most importantly have to stay healthy throughout their careers(Knock on Wood!!!), but the pieces are there to make that kind of jump in a few years.

    I like every player on this Rockets roster for the first time since...probably the 90s.

    I really appreciate what Morey and the rest of the Rockets organization have been doing lately.

    Lets not start sucking ************************here just yet.

    We have to see how he surrounds the Beard over the next five years. Our bench is horrible and point guard play has to improve.

    I am really curious to see what Morey's next move is with the money the organization has left to spend on another player.
