    Rockets better not tease us and let Levert play then trade him right after the game to the pacers lol. If he does play and shows out I wonder if the rockets will keep him

    He's not playing. That second trade should be finalized before tip-off. Hopefully in time for physicals.

    bro i can't buy this story about VO being in our longterm plans. no fukin way tilfuk pays him $25M/yr or anything even remotely close to that. he's a pure salary dump for us, maybe we get an asset at the deadline for him

    I don't have any information that says what they want to do with him. All I know is they are saying that they think he's a great player and they wanted him over LeVert. Whether that's fluff or not? I don't know. I think he will be extended before the trade is official and I think that's the hold up. Oladipo on a 3 year $72 Million contract after a 2 year $52 million extension. This is me doing some deduction.

    #1. I know they said they really like Victor.
    #2. The trade is taking forever.
    #3. Feigen says there is no hold up based on health.

    Hes a bully. His frame and finesse will allow him to do more than Livingston who ppl were calling a bust before the injury

    i agree w/ what you've posted elsewhere in the forum about him being a plus defender. i also think his playmaking is underrated. but he clearly doesn't look the same since the injury, the explosion is just not there anymore. and even pre-injury, his small stature puts him at a disadvantage in a lot of matchups. if we're able to successfully rehabilitate his game & value down the road and trade him for a herro or MPJ or other young hi-potential player, okay great. but i just don't see him as a rocket 3yrs out :confused:

    2 years removed from the injury. I've heard he looks great this season. I hadn't been watching the Pacers because I was too busy watching the Celtics, Heat, 76ers and Nuggets to see players who may be coming here. So outside Youtube clips, I can only go on what I read.

    in the game we played at indy couple weeks ago he was underwhelming imo

    got stuck having to jump and pass for TO's a few times b/c his legs just aren't right yet

    I don't remember being very impressed by him during the game but I wasn't really focusing on his performance.

    It's over. He's gone. People are mad because Harden wasn't good enough. True or not it was a **** thing to say. He didn't want to be here. Nothing was going to be good enough. Especially when he's mailing it in then says their not good enough like he hasn't been sabotaging games.

    This is getting to be ridiculous! We haven't had ONE game this season when the whole team was available. It's really difficult to know who/what we are.
