    My main man Cash Considerations has been letting me down for months.

    Time to ship his ass for a rotation guy.

    Is that a joke? $42m worth of stock is illiquid?

    Stock is technically a liquid asset.

    What can we spend money on to make us a contender? Maybe they didn't see an option for that route and we have to kick the can or pray for a miracle.

    Nobody is forcing him to spend on the Rockets. He can spend it on other things/doing investments.

    They are a playoff team with the MVP and the ability to snag home court with a good close out to the season.

    If they were below or right at .500 maybe it would be time to think about shutting it down but this move to:

    -Trade draft picks
    -Trade rotation and potential rotation players
    -and leave 3 roster spots open

    Makes no sense to me other than when I start caring about Tillman’s pocket book. No... Ennis isn’t the key to a championship. Stauskas isn’t a world beater.... but either one of those two guys can have good nights for us in a season where we cannot take for granted the kind of season James Harden is having. It’s disresctful to him and I guarantee you he won’t be understanding with this type of kick the can attitude.

    This is the kind of thing that makes superstars start to think it’s a good time to request a trade.

    Yep. And nobody is forcing me to eat salty frozen shrimp at his restaurants either.

    Look, you're not "wrong" but you're really not covering new ground here. We're really going to complain about the trade deadline every time Tilman makes a stock purchase now?

    And why does the anti-owner crowd always "guarantee" that you know what Harden is thinking, or what information he is privy to, or what conversations he has or hasn't had with Tilman?

    If you want to make guarantees, start by sticking your neck out on what players you would've been proud of paying luxury tax on that could've been acquired with what we gave up. I'm going to say that Nik Stauskas was worth trying, but not more valuable than resetting the clock on the repeater tax at the risk of future all-in moves.

    Also remember that multiple sources, and Tilman, rumbled about the rockets getting "screwed out of a trade" in the 11th hour.

    These threads have become ****ing ridiculous. Someone just go snoop through his trash and see what toilet paper he uses. Report back whether he could be using a cheaper brand, so he could offer more money to Danuel House.

    You guys realize how this works right? If the Rockets go over the tax, the CORPORATION of the Rockets can go in debt to pay it, the money does not come out of Tillman's pocket......like ever....it is all about shuffling debt, and assets.
