    All the Rockets legend came to welcome Dwight. I wonder if they will all come to welcome Brodaie

    Dwight guarantee a championship. Justin Timberlate was a witness.

    Ahhhh...good time. Memory for the way we were

    "Hakeem the Dream, Ralph Sampson, Yao Ming, Elvin Hayes, Chandler Parsons, Patrick Bevelry, Calvin Murphy, Clyde Drexler, and Kevin McHale in attendance. Red Rally"

    Russell and Harden are too busy, jetting around.

    I guess the different handlers are planning something. Messaging is important, so that everyone saves face. Not a coincidence that neither Paul nor Westbrook have commented at all.

    That was crazy and most of us probably realised it was not the second coming of any of those former big men, but damnit did they manage to fool me at least a little bit by setting high expectations with that rally.

    Wow. In a few short years, signing Dwight to your team has decline precipitously:
    • "OMG! A giant outdoor celebration with team legends involved! Polish up the Larry O'Brien trophy, because we're coming to get it!"
    • "Hey, the guy's a former MVP, lets hope last year was a fluke."
    • "Damn, he used to be a force. Maybe we can flip him at the trade deadline for a decent role player."
    • "No, no, no! Not this team-killing dork. Has he got anything left in the tank at this point?"
    • "Why, {insert GM name}? WHY?"

    What are you talking about? Quiet how? Harden has spoken multiple times about how excited he is about the trade and how he's positive it will work. How often do you want him to repeat himself?

    I would love to go to an open scrimmage game. Those use to be free to the public. The rookie dance off with Scola and Tmac staying play that man some salsa music. Also, Ron Artest airballing his first shot.

    Tad Brown better make sure that they shoot off fireworks at the press conference. Do it outdoors at night after a Westbrook parade first.

    It was hot. Houston summer. 95 degrees not counting humidity. Seeing all the Houston greats was awesomeness. Dream, Ralph (man, we coulda had Jordan), Moses, Rudy, etcetera. But James Harden's absence spoke volumes (don't know if he had an official reason): I ain't signin' off on this ish.

    At an outdoor Westbrook presser, I would have a big moment where Clint, PJ, and Tyson step out of the way while boxing out others so Russell can easily grab the microphone.

    I actually think the understated confidence is a good thing. Both of these guys have been in the league long enough now to know that this move is all about business. They've both experienced euphoric highs, and devastating lows, and now it's about winning championships together. Along that same vein, Kawhi and Paul George have been super quiet about their partnership too. The only one who has been vocal about any of this has been LeBron, and everyone knows he's a blowhard when it comes to this stuff.

    Also, Morey and MDA were both vacationing according to @The Cat , but they are back now. I have a feeling as soon as Westbrook gets back to Houston, they will have one.

    Were they vacationing together? Wait, is Morey cheating on his wife?! This close to his anniversary?!? How could he?!

    Gives a whole new meaning to the seven seconds of less offense if you ask me.

    Thank you everyone, that insane rambling was brought to you by work boredom. I'll be here all week.
