    Some ppl cannot read.

    He balanced finances and winning. We were choice winning, Cuban choice finances. He chose finances.

    Oh well.

    one million more is too much for the under-the-cap tag team of les and morey. i wouldnt wanna be caught stealing a penny from those fellas

    les and morey walk into a bar and find a penny. they both fight to the death for it

    Hmm, I read it as the Rockets were choice finances, with nearly the full MLE available, teams like the Cavs or Heat with only the minimum as choice winning, and the Mavs struck a balance between the two, getting a bit of both.

    You have to draw the line somewhere. Kudos to Morey for sticking to his guns. The role Nelson provides is not worth overpaying for.

    No one besides Woj is truly credible.

    These are all wild guesses one of them has too stick. There is no repercussions for slander or anything

    The Rockets would not spend the MLE on Nelson.

    Mike Beasley is available, working out with Durrant. We should sign Sessions, Okafor and Beasley and we'd have squad and depth

    "But Nelson IS a nobody. Howard spoke the truth, that is what a true leader do. Why can't these scrub, I mean role players, just accept the truth and stop being bu++hurt? These role players are a dime a dozen, we'll be fine, we have Canaan, he'll fill the role for pennies."

    Were he to come here, he would have had to balance being an asset and a piece.

    [rquoter]OS: Is it true that Dwight tried to recruit you to the Rockets?

    Nelson: [Laughs] You know what, man? I’m with Dallas. I’ll just talk about Dallas. [Laughs][/rquoter]

    You are nuts.

    The team needs vets, the team needs guys who can play with a post up player, the team needs leadership. He provides both.

    Orlando Magic cut Nelson to save $4.5mil and then proceeded to give that $4.5mil to Ben Gordon. I think that action would speak a little louder than the words you speak of Nelson's positive attributes.
