    I love this teams heart. But it just wasn't our year.

    Let's see what our or chances win out and the Grizllies lose 2. Win out and the hornets have to lose 5.

    The best team not to make the playoffs. A lousy consolation but you got to love these guys. I hope I am wrong but I think it is the end of the Adelman era.

    Sad day for the Rockets and their fans. Adelman and the team may not have quit yet but it looks bleak.

    What are the chances of us winning out. What our the playoff chances for us. Sad day.

    Not over yet my friend. Not until we're mathematically eliminated will I ever give up hope. Gonna have to make an impressive run down the stretch, but we certainly have a team capable of doing it. This team could win out... seriously that would not even surprise me. I think this was the toughest game left from a match up standpoint (nice that we had so much rest though).

    Morey needs to start thinking about getting a true center.

    I loved this team this whole season had its ups and downs. There was so much hope going into this season (ESPN and all other sports outlets had us at top 4 in west). Hopefully next season things can turn around. I was almost in tears....almost

    Him, Singler, or Derick Williams and I'm happy. I don't see it happening tho. I think those three will go too high for us to pick them up...

    Singler!? You kidding me? I'd be mad if we took him at 14.

    Truth be told, I'd be mad if we spent a second rounder on him :p

    He's a better defender than our starting 3 and he can shoot the ball well.

    We don't need anymore role players. We need talent.

    Exactly. He spreads the floor and he shoots really well. I think he would be a good fit with us. It's like OKC picking Harden. Is Harden really worthy of the #3 pick? Hell no, but he works for them perfectly...

    I don't see us getting "talent" for quite a long time...

    I'd like Kemba but why? We have Lowry, Dragic. Play him at SG? We have Martin and Lee.

    We need either a Center or athletic SF that can play defense.

    I still hope we can sneak up and get Enes Kanter.

    I don't want the guy, but mocks I've seen have him late first to early second rounder. I'd be furious if we snag him anywhere near the lottery.

    Although this is considered a weak draft, there are a lot of hidden gems here and there. Noguiera is one. So is Jeff Taylor.

    We could always use another high scoring, Kyle Lowry like PG. Who also plays defense.

    1) Try and win all of the rest of the games(Hopefully make the playoffs).

    2) Marc Gasol or DeAndre Jordan

    3) Brandon Knight
