    Let's be honest. Preferably, Of course i want LMA to sign with the rockets, but at least he isn't signing with Mavs.

    Agree he's got a lot of miles on his body.

    Ok, not sure what your point is...LMA coming to Houston was even more unlikely than that, which was my point.

    And signing to what would be the most stacked team with championship pedigree will be better?

    Wow, a tweet actually acknowledging Houston as a destination for Aldridge! He even called us front runners, there's hope!! Thanks, Jared :)

    Four frontrunners out of five teams. Way to put yourself out there. Now watch Aldridge re-sign with the Blazers.

    That's probably the correct order, as well.

    I've been assuming the Splitter trade made LMA a fait accompli for the Spurs. I am now giddy at the thought that they could dump Splitter only to have LMA go elsewhere with the Spurs having to sign a chump like Perkins to fill the void. It's almost exciting enough that I wouldn't min him signing with Dallas. Almost.

    Do the Mavs have the cap room to offer max contracts to both LMA and DJ?

    Plus they are trying to sign Wesley Matthews too.

    Blazers are going to be bad next year. Lost Batum. Losing Matthews and Aldridge.
