    Rockets acquired Jordan Hill and Kevin Martin and started their rebuilding process. 6 years later Rockets want to begin their rebuilding again, perhaps Dwight gets traded on 6 year anniversary.

    That trade was a heist, FYI. An incomprehensible return for the corpse of T-Mac that no other GM could have pulled off.

    For all you newbs pulling the "OMGG firre Murray!!!!" card.

    ******* what a heist that was. A lot of Morey's moves looks great in hindsight

    Difference is Dwight is still a good player. McGrady's mindset was AWOL and his talent fell off a cliff.

    Morey was a great GM back then, he's lost his touch though

    I stand by the comment

    Great GMs win championships, not just one. Morey got none.

    He is good though I give it to him, talented.

    Nah.

    Disagree about the great GM comment. Morey is a great GM that got hosed by the system. We rebuilt to a WCF team on the fly without tanking, had like 80 players come thru the doors when most crap teams keep fielding the same garbage for 3 or more years at a time. Hes drafted well enough that our "busts" seem to still be valued by other teams.

    He fields a competitive team (minus this season due to people falling off the cliff) while keeping cap room to land a big fish if they decide against chasing money over wins.

    Hes a great GM. Rings dont mean squat when youre talking about ability. Ewing was a great center, Malone is top 2 PF of all time, Stockton arguably is the greatest pure PG to ever live, so youre telling me they arent great because they didnt win a ring?

    This championship argument is the weakest garbage argument a person can make.

    He traded the festering rotted corpse of tmac and kickstarted our path that has been sidetracked by the admittedly awful move of drafting TJones who I believe is the root of all our problems.

    Better put: A lot of Morey's moves look questionable in the present, but turn out to be great with time.

    Morey tried to dump Tmac for Vince Carter, but Tmac nixed it with his surgery announcement with Stephen A Smith.

    Tmac blocked him, best defensive play he did all year.
