Dwight Howard will be a Houston Rocket — it still does not feel real.

agreed

Interesting article. But I noticed several names were placed in strikeouts. Are those typos?

But perhaps Daryl Morey’s greatest move was when Daryl Morey locked up Daryl Morey to a long-term extension before Daryl Morey got Dwight Howard.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

I was about to quote that exact same line. Great observation. Morey "Parsoned" himself.

That's funny, I didn't know he added The in front of his name.

Like The University of Texas or The Ohio State University. LOL

Thank You

Last week was a sleep-deprived nightmare and all kinds of site traffic records were set, but it was just so amazing to see the Rockets come out the big winners.

I havenít had time to reply to all the emails, contributions, texts, tweets, etc. and I owe so many people responses. Thank you. I just canít express my gratitude enough to all of you for the overwhelming support of ClutchFans.

Iím just ecstatic for the city of Houston and the fans. After years of disappointment and torture ó analyzing the possibility of Chase Budinger becoming a superstar or debating if Terrence Williams is the next LeBron James (#wordaapp) ó we deserve this. This team is gunning for Miami and itís going to be a very fun year for all of us.

Thank you again.
Awesome. Thank you Clutch!

Great article like usual. One of the many reasons recently why I donated today.

I think the Rockets are contender next year (14/15), not this year (13/14).

They need at least a year to work on their chemistry, particularly for a young team.

Lets not forget that during all of this madness....Clutch pulled a new clutchfans.net website frontpage re-design out of his ass on "Dwight Howard decision day."

Just fantastic!

ďI think with this [acquisition of Dwight Howard], we move into one of the top teams in the West,Ē Morey said.
"Teams mistake at times like this when they make rash moves, rather than well thought-out moves.
My concern is our playoff team coming in has chance to beat every other team in the playoffs; itís not on having the best team in the league July 6, 2013.Ē

I wonder, will this help put an end to the horrible suggestion that Asik and Dwight play alongside each other? Doubtful, but maybe, just maybe...

I'm still very interested in why JLin hasn't spoken a word about Dwight Howard yet. He usually is one of the first to welcome a new player.

Also interesting to me — Houston’s new “Big Three” represents each of the three avenues a team can use to improve: James Harden (trade), Dwight Howard (free agency) and Chandler Parsons (draft).
Morey is the Lebron James of GM's.

That trade wasn't rescinded according to Dunleavy Sr.
