    I just want to say that I didn't quite read "But the Game is on" from the URL initially.
    I don't believe this is correct, the Rockets are more like 23rd or 24th overall in D efficiency this season.

    Also, Patterson didn't make a few trips up and down the D-League. He made one brief trip. He's not the best defender on the team. Not even the best interior defender. Chuck Hayes still is.

    We hear chatter that Kev-Mar is in demand in Chicago and Jersey and elsewhere. Sounds to me a perfect time to swap the lap for Favors or similar; sell high!

    This isn't meant to sound like I want the fellow gone just that selling high sounds good to me - and more time for Browery sounds good to me, too.

    What else do you expect from the "Butt He Game Ison" blog?

    Except you're doing it wrong. You trade up not down. Only trades that work with those teams is sending Martin and getting players like Rose or Lopez and a couple of 1st rnd picks. A better example is trading Brooks and getting something of value back. Just like we sold very high on Landry and got Martin. You send Martin to any team and he will keep his 20+ ppg average where as Landy didn't nor Brooks will. They only perform well with the team they are with. Similar with how we bought high on Ariza on how he performed with the Lakers and was a bust here and NO.
