    Ish Smith/Shaun Livingston
    Demarre Carroll/Garret Temple/Alonzo Gee
    Robert Covington/Gerald Green
    Jon Leur/James Johnson
    Hassan Whiteside/Tarik Black

    vs.

    Pat Beverley/Ty Lawson
    James Harden/Jason Terry/Marcus Thornton
    Trevor Ariza/Corey Brewer
    Donatas Motiejunas/Terrence Jones
    Dwight Howard/Clint Capela

    This team is composed of players who currently play in the NBA that Houston Rockets have waived for no one in return. LOVE Daryl Morey and it isn't his fault for collecting talent like this, just a fun and somewhat depressing look at reality.

    Yes.

    Anybody can beat the Rockets, especially A team of just hustle men and hard working players. With out a doubt.

    I would still prefer the team the Rockets have now though.. Spit*

    Damarre Carroll would be nice right now. An Ariza clone imo but much younger. Although his 15 mil a year price is rediculous when u consider that's why Harden makes.

    Anybody in the NBA could beat the Rockets right now. The Sixers almost did it not that long ago.

    You're asking hypothetically / on paper? This Rockets squad should be able to beat anyone.

    Read the spoiler to get an idea of why I put that particular team together. A hypothetical question

    Depends .... will the other team be playing Morey-ball? If so, then yes.


    PS: A Morey-ball is a failed system where a random MIT guy who never played basketball at any level comes up with a "system". You know, like when a street bookie manage your 401k.

    Pretty much.

    Rockets can lose to anyone because sometimes it looks like they don't even care to win...

    I'm not a troll. You don't seem to be very active on this forum.

    Seems the point of the thread is that we let a lot of nice talent go. Although I don't think lack of talent is the problem with this team any ways but I do get the point.

    I have nothing against it. There are many players on that list we could really use now...particularly shooters...
