    Rockets have been red hot since the whole Melo debacle ended.

    Despite injuries to key players in Paul and Capela, they are 3 wins out in front of the rest of the West. Standings since ditching Melo below.

    It's a fair chunk of the season, and reason to believe that they are who they are in terms of the record below.

    Incidentally, at that win %, extrapolated over the entire season (ie, supposing we never bothered with Melo), then the Rockets would be on 51 wins right now (ie 4 clear of the rest of the West).

    I've noticed you keep using the wrong date. You keep doing since our 14th seed record of 11-14.

    That isn't our date since Melo....he was long gone by then.
    Melo left after 10 games, at 4-6 record...11/8/18...the OKC game.

    We've played 60 games since Melo. But the actual standings since Melo are just as impressive.

    So you're saying Carmelo Anthony is not the key to a championship formula?

    But who else was he supposed to sign @J Sizzle ?

    Maybe the TROPHY was the key!

    Oops!

    Thanks HP - I must have a mental note of 9th December thinking it was Melo, but it was 14 seed land.
    Hopefully I can update my mental file!

    Hey - either way for a significant portion of the season we are far and away the best team in the West. The date since Melo is more impressive since it really was about ditching a negative impact on the team, and the standings since then more fairly reflect where the Rockets are at this season.

    Damn shame. He was truly the last available option. Sad to see it didn’t work out.

    Wow... Good for management, realizing he needed to go. You know that was awkward with everything that had been said this summer/Chris Paul's friendship... Glad we were able to move on.

    Since we traded Melo on January 22nd of 2019, we're 18-6. That's on pace for 62 wins.

    That's the date that actually matters @heypartner and @DrNuegebauer . That also marks the day where clutchfans decided to continue to be unhappy about positive results. Bigly day, bigly results, bigly turdposting.

    Side note: I have Maryland beating Kentucky in the college basketball championship and Virginia getting beat again in the first round. Go Gardner! (this side note has nothing to do with this thread, nor should anyone care, but I learned to change subjects at a drop of a hat from the fine posters we have on this forum.)

    Also tagging @Derp McFlopsky for no other reason but to say I like his posts and moniker and moniker pic.... because I know he has a backup mic. Dangggggg!

    Sign Carmelo Anthony + Trading Carmelo Anthony = Larry O Brien Trophy

    This can actually work, Daryl is a Genius. It took 10 games to find out, plus Jeff Bzdelik not coming back until Carmelo was gone.

    Sign Carmelo Anthony, Bench Carmelo Anthony, Carmelo Anthony stays at home, Jeff Bzdelik comes out retirement, plus bigger salary, disputed because of Cheap Tillman again.

    Warned clutchfans.

    Melo is a loser and is infectious.

    Should have never signed him.
