Again, we lose out on a big superstar and get more role players.

Neither the Lakers nor the Hornets have anything of value (outside of Kobe and CP3) that I find interesting enough to help them facilitate a deal.

I'm guessing we end up with injury prone Bynum. I don't understand what NO would get out of this.

Kobe to Houston? You heard it here first ;-)

No, it`s got to be Bynum - no way we heavily invest in Pau.

God damnit, why can't we for once be the team that gets the star instead of helping facilitate another team to get one! (not mad at Morey, just venting)

Yes, because that tells you SO much about the deal and what the Rockets get out of it.

Paul must not want to play in Houston.

Otherwise, Morey would be trying to trade for him straight up, right?
