    If it was the TV show with Time Warner that put them into contention, then f*** him

    Well well well...

    Still don't think he's going to the Lakers, but it looks like the Rockets are firmly out of it. I guess we'll see.

    They can promise max money with ZERO adjustments to a roster that won a whopping 27 GAMES! Melo can't say no to that!

    And honestly lets just chill..... Like K-Low says.... If we don't get Melo then we move on to plan B... If plan B does not work then we move on to plan C..... Anything we get is going to improve our team because The Rockets are already a strong contender and only improving... The Rockets without Melo are already better than NYK/Lakers/Mavericks/Chicago with Melo..... I do believe Melo will chose Houston thou and if he doesn't then w/e..... Almost any addition and getting rid of Lin makes us better....

    Well...I think a lot of people just refer to last year.

    A lot of the media really didn't talk up Dwight going to houston.

    We had guys flat out say he's going to stay in L.A and we all know how that turned out.

    In the end, no one really knows. Melo could change his mind at the last moment...no one has a idea except for Melo.

    We don't need Melo on this team. He's a cancer who doesn't want a championship. Morey will pull something out of his ass, BELIEVE!
