    Daryl Morey has made more enemies than Friends in the NBA.

    Rafael Stone is the complete opposite, he makes fair deals for both sides and has great trade partners. OKC Sam Presti trading the 16th pick for 2 - 1st Round Picks.

    I think Morey chooses talent over fit is because getting the talent is the hardest part.

    He ended up in a Rockets 2.0 situation. I think Philly will be competitive, but will become like the Rockets..... just need that one last piece to put them over the top.

    The headlines... "Ben wants out of Philly." That is likely true, but gentle reminder, Philly wanted Ben out first. They're just waiting for the right deal.

    The lowering trade value thing, Ben did that plenty by himself in the playoffs.

    Everyone being quiet on Clutch fans is Hilarious to me, I am in the minority who knew that the Brooklyn Picks is the best deal because the Rockets needed to clear Salaries, Not Have Terrible Contracts, Caris Levert has been injury prone, broken leg, Health problems.

    Ben Simmons is still a raw player that never improved himself since his Rookie Year that still can't shoot and is a Right Handed shooting with his Left Hand.
    His Dad told him to shoot Left Handed, which is crazy.

    The Rockets Front Office proved Everyone on this Forum wrong. I literally am Happy the Front Office Ignored Rockets Fans, Dumb Media and just focused on Team Needs which is Draft Pick Talent is the lifeblood of Sports Teams.

    $300 Million Dollar Starting Lineup

    PG John Wall
    PG/ SG Ben Simmons
    SF Caris Levert
    PF Christian Wood
    C Jarrett Allen

    SG Eric Gordon

    How many Games can they play before getting injured.
    How many wins can they get 38 wins at best.

    Bricking 3 pointers, and can't move on defense.

    Lol imagine trying to lower your value when the rest of the league already realizes your worthless.

    Its sort of amazing how dumb his camp is. How did nobody decide that was a bad idea?

    So, the Rockets being the worst team in the league last year because we got nothing back for Harden was good, and you knew it?

    I hope we're good next year, because you're going to look REALLY stupid if we aren't.
