Very cool of you to take the time to do this and let us in on the happenings. The fact that you got to meet Hakeem is probably the highlight for me amongst all of the Dwight excitement.

Two names I did overhear uttered by Les to Olajuwon were Jarrett Jack and Josh Smith, though I think he was talking about Smith in relation to Detroit chasing him.

Wow, if we get Jack, Dwight and Smith ...

Great stuff.

Best part is Morey's response to the chances of getting Howard. Everything points to us acquiring him.

Something BIG is happening and I love it.

Oh man, the excitement and anticipation is killing me. but I do have one question




why didn't you follow them in the caravan like your life depended on it?!!! Or at least pull a 007 and attach a tracking device to the van they were on?



If we had known you could see the Rockets personnel set off, I'm sure the Clutchfans BBS Q would've set you up with some gadgets to get the inside scoop...

If you could mention the van we sent to Orlando last year somehow, it'd make the story even more heartfelted...

Two iPads!? No way Dwight turns us down now. You've outdone yourself Morey.
