    Your acting like 7 mil a year is a bad thing for that type of performance. Your right he does not play defense which is why his salary is only about 7 mil a season. If he did play defense he would be a max player in today's NBA. You think a guy forgets to shoot after he cracks his wrist? I laugh at that notion. He was over paid at the time he was making 10+ mil a season a few seasons ago. The NBA salary cap has adjusted to the point where 7 mil a season is an absolute bargain for his production.

    I find it I bit ironic that you champion a guy (Rubio) who has had an almost impossible time staying healthy and then call out another player that gets injured. At least KMart has been an exceptionally productive offensive player in the NBA. Rubio can't shoot & can't finish at the rim. He can pass and his defense is ok but overrated by you.

    Yes to Rubio. Jason Kidd couldn't shoot either and he turned out to develop a nice shot.

    Honestly I'd rather have Mo Williams at a way cheaper price.

    He hasn't developed it after all these years in the NBA. We can't afford to wait for that.

    The bad defense argument for KMart doesn't apply. The Rockets defense this year is based on JB's scheme. KMart or anyone else for that matter would be fine defensively.

    We are not getting Rubio. We need another player who can create for himself as well as others.

    Goran Dragic anyone

    No wont bother.
    If you think there's a chance of us getting Rubio this season, you're either 12 or not very smart.
    If its the former, I apologize for calling you an idiot.

    Jason Kidd could finish at the rim.

    Man, I wish we could get DJ Augustin. I campaigned so hard for him at the beginning of the season. Looking solid since Jennings went down.

    Yeah he was good as a backup in Chicago too. I'd rather have him then Beverley. Beverley is done.

    Denver is losing by THIRTY at the half, this could be something good to come out of today for the Rockets.

    Now is the time to go all out for Ty Lawson.

    I think it's very possible that a 3-team trade between OKC, Houston, and Denver can make some sense. Something like

    OKC gets TJones, Canaan, Knicks 2nd
    Denver gets Reggie Jackson, Pelicans 1st, Papa, Shved
    Rockets get Ty Lawson

    I won't argue whether this is fair to any of the teams. just that there's enough stuff that each team would want from the other teams that an overall trade can work. Denver replaces Laswson with Jackson and get a nice late lottery pick, Rockets made huge upgrade at PG. OKC gets rid of a bad chemistry guy, gets their Collison replacement, a backup PG with potential, and a top 2nd rounder for their cheap owner.

    I still think we will get Lawson for some strange reason.
