    Is everyone ready for the inevitable Jonathan Feigen fluff article about how the Rockets really like their team the way it is and it will have quotes from our lame duck head coach and some styrofoam statement from Daryl Morey about the team being good enough to win?

    My guess is tomorrow we get the article. It will make reference to the Rockets being active at the trade deadline and the Rockets liking the internal improvement of their young players.

    Last it will discuss Iguodala as a buyout candidate that likes the Rockets.

    This is Tilman standard operating procedure.... from “special math” to “save MLE for buyout market”.

    Cheaskate Tilman has a whole bunch of slurpers. He might have some money if he stopped paying them to say/write all positives about him

    Can’t believe our best chance of winning a championship got shut down by LTS.

    It is just so predictable and so insulting.

    The owner won’t even extend his own coach and it cost him the opportunity for better defensive assistants.

    Someone in the Houston media needs to keep hitting on Tilman to put up or shut up... and it is sad watching Daryl Morey pander to Tilman to keep his job.

    Are you REALLY surprised though?

    Look at the track record... he’ll ask D’Antoni if Tilman is cheap.

    Unfortunately that’s life. I know I’ve had to make decisions I didn’t want and/or bite my tongue to keep the boss happy. Tilman has check signer privileges. Thus is life.

    I think everyone is jumping to conclusions too quick on this one. I don't think luxury taxes were the main concern here. It's much more likely the trade price was the problem. We have limited assets and were on a deadline. While as the other teams had no such deadline. They likely wanted to wait till the deadline unless they got exactly what they wanted.

    We could have taken Patrick Patterson’s expiring deal and flipped it later at the deadline if money wasn’t the concern.

    This was clearly about money and Tilman not wanting to pay.

    Yes, Feigen is all-fluff.

    No, D'Antoni is not a lame duck. He's Harden's favorite coach, which makes him king of the universe.

    Yes, we're good enough to win, like we were the last 2 years.

    Why does everyone keep thinking that Iggy is our last piece for our championship team? We still need a PF and more importantly to figure out the Westbrook / Harden duo.

    Spending 20 million on a someone who's main impact will be in the playoffs ( assuming he's healthy) is alot of money for anyone to swallow. It's probably our last significant move, barring a sign and trade for Iman if we get there.

    Are we sure OKC would have wanted to move 2Pat? I would think expiring contracts are valuable to a rebuilding organization.

    OKC wants to shed salary to get under the LT.
