38. Kyle Lowry
Killer value ($17.5 million total through 2014) for a quality point guard (16-7-5, 39 percent 3FG, elite defense). Let's have a round of applause for Dork Elvis — he basically traded Carl Landry, Rafer Alston, Aaron Brooks, a washed-up Tracy McGrady and Vassilis Spanoulis12 for Lowry, Martin, Scola, Dragic, Jordan Hill, the no. 23 pick in 2011 and New York's 2012 no. 1 pick. Also, did you know Houston is the only above-.500 team without a lottery pick in its nine-man rotation (much less starting for it)? Bill lemme know what else you need or if this paragraph will suffice. Good seeing you in Boston. Thanks, Daryl.
(Whoops, I forgot to take that last part out. Sorry about that.)
Like the "30. Hasheen Thabeet: Just kidding." part.

3 potentials > 1 potential.
PG - Isiah Thomas / Dennis Johnson
SG - Manu Ginobili / Michael Redd
SF - Dan Majerle / Dale Ellis
PF - Chris Webber / Maurice Lucas
C - Artis Gilmore / Jeff Ruland
I thought Kyle would've been higher. Oh, and Patrick Patterson was a lottery pick.
Pay the man Rick!
My first heartbreak, the 92 Oilers. 35-3 clutching defeat from the jaws of victory. My second heartbreak, the 92 Rockets. FU Sam freaking Perkins! But my current heartbreak....A BIG FU to COMCAST!
quote:A few weeks ago, I spent a Saturday at MIT's Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, or as I dubbed it, Dorkapalooza 2009! A slew of statistical rock stars showed up: Dean Oliver, Aaron Schatz, John Hollinger. Panels argued topics like "Where are basketball analytics headed?" and "What's more important, coming up with a cool formula or kissing a girl?" The hottest celeb? My friend Daryl Morey, the Rockets GM, who was hounded by MIT students as if he were Britney among the paparazzi. I dubbed him Dork Elvis. Even he admitted that was funny. Begrudgingly.
I hope to God I don't see him on the Rockets bench come the 16th.

btw: he also made comments about Scola and Martin.
Here's who got bumped from last year's top 50 list: DeJuan Blair (no. 50 last year) had a spirited "who knows, maybe he can play 15 years with no ACLs!" campaign lose luster when Brandon Roy's no-cartilege bid disintegrated … Danny Granger (44) is the captain of the "Guys Paid Like Franchise Players Who Aren't Franchise Players" All-Stars … Kevin Martin (43) is like a bottle of scotch: It's more fun to regift him than to keep him … there are 65 million reasons why Nene (42) didn't make it … Luis Scola (41) hasn't been the same post-Veto (couldn't you say that about all of us?) … we might need to introduce Andrew Bogut (40) to Phoenix's training staff soon … David West (33) lost an ACL and Chris Paul … Lamar Odom (31) proved he wasn't kidding when he turned down Portland's lucrative free agent offer in 2010 by saying, "You don't understand, I need to live near the beach" … Carlos Boozer (29) spray-paints his own hairline … Kevin Garnett (28) looks like "The Ageless KG" some nights and "The Washed-Up KG" other nights … and Amar'e Stoudemire (20) is 27 months away from legally changing his name to "Amar'e's Expiring Contract."
45. Eric Gordon
Would you trade Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, Goran Dragic, Lamar Odom and New York's 2012 no. 1 pick (probably 21st overall) for Gordon, Al Farouq Aminu and Minnesota's 2012 no. 1 pick (probably 19th overall)? Sure … if you were intentionally trying to suck all kinds of suck. Stay classy, David Stern.9
If you're a GM and a Morey deal starts to look good to you, you're already in trouble. Dance puppet, dance!
Typically, people are as CRAZY or as LAZY as they are ALLOWED to be... and as long as the ROX are gonna give James free reign to do whatever the hell he wants to do (or not do) - we ain't goin nowhere! :(
What a clueless fool... I guess Jordan Hill and Patrick Patterson aren't rotation players. And Tracy McGrady's bag of bones? That "bag of bones" and his 23 million dollar expiring contract got the Knicks out of their decade long financial ****up. I can't stand people giving Morey credit for trading him, that was a desired player/contract. After the whole, Mario Williams write up from I forget who, Grantland is a Joke, I would rather read Solomon, and trust me, that's bad.
