    will Taj move out of the way so Westbrook can get his rebounds? not likely.

    I would have sworn Taj Gibson's trade value was higher than that. Huh.

    The narrative will switch from "Westbrook has no help at all! Doing it all! MVP!" to "Westbrook finally has help! Surging up the standings to the 6th seed. MVP!"

    Great deal OKC.

    "They're gonna call Taj into the office. You gotta let Russ have those rebounds. When he misses a FT, get out of the way & let him have it. If you miss an open jumper, be ready for that look." - Windhorst :D

    Presti: "Excited to add you both."

    Gibson: " Thanks, so why did we have to park a half mile away. There was a whole players parking lot empty except one car."

    Presti: "Ohh that is for Russ. The rest of the guys take the bus from the greyhound on 4th avenue."

    Gibson: "What the..."

    McDermot: "Where are the lockers?"

    Presti: "Those are for Russ only.. sorry guys.... meals are in the men's room on the third floor... Russ turned the cafeteria into his clothes closet."

    Presti: "Oh, and practice on boxing out to allow Russ to get rebounds starts in 30 minutes."

    Rhyno/Gibson/Harrell
    Capela/Nene

    would have been a solid big man rotation

    Donovan: "Box-OUT..Good! NO, DON'T "Get" the rebound ...keep boxing for your TEAMmate(s). I'm the coach, its what we do here. Box-Out as instructed. (Dougie, on the PERIMETER, too!) "

    It happens. For anything great to happen so many things have to fall just right. My understanding is not having Motiejunas' contract also cost the Rockets several opportunities that could have really helped the team over the next few years.

    The Rockets needed to make a move and wisely made a move before everyone they coveted was gone.

    Wow, OKC robbed Chicago. Cameron Payne may be good, but so far, he is not.
