    Vinsanity and Linsanty changing teams on the same day? Lots of movement in the Sanity family.

    And dude, that contract is super cheap! Morey should totally have offer him more after Bosh fell through.

    I don't know whether this is an upgrade over Tayshaun Prince or not

    1) Vince leaves Dallas
    2) Rockets match Parsons
    3) Ariza Re-ups w/ Washington
    4) Marion signs elesewhere

    Sucks to suck Dallas

    I don't like Dallas r the macs. But I'm not sure which is worse for the macs, matching or not matching. If parsons plays like he did vs Portland than not matching hurts them worse.

    Huge loss for the Mavs. He was a key factor of that bench and sometimes he was the only one showing up for them besides Dirk

    Yeah Vince was still a good player. Honestly if the Rockets had signed him for a year or two I wouldn't have been mad.

    This might be petty, but I'm glad that the Mavs' offer to Parsons is costing them in this way. I'd love to wake up on Monday with the Rockets matching Parsons, and Deng and Ariza signing elsewhere. Again, petty, but I don't care at this point.

    Yes. Let's swipe Marion while the Parsons deal is pending, then match it.

    Also, let's make sure that Marion and Morey sign the contract at Treasures. And take lots of photos and videos.

    I would've been satisfied with Vince coming off the bench for us. But ofcourse, our genius GM had his attention elsewhere:rolleyes:
