    He respects Hakeem too much to turn him down. We got this.

    Call Robert Horry, Yao Ming, Moses, Barkley, Kenny, Clyde... If Dwight is all about "winning" like he.said,, Rockets is the best place. Even a 5 year old can see that. He's the most dramatic crybaby in NBA history if he ends up anywhere else besides Houston.

    At the end of the day the only person he cares about is himself. If its a neck and neck decision like everyone else is reporting, then this might tilt Dwight. If Dwight already has his mind set on something else then there is no changing him.

    Dream = ultimate combo of success, humility, and pride. Bought and sold.

    I would have thought this was obvious, but it's very good news none the less. Hopefully he has enough pull since he spent so much time training him.

    I wish we could go last. Dwight is easily swayed and the team he last talked to would be fresh in his mind....

    Is that why he didn't even bother with Houston before Harden came?lol So should we expect Lebron to sign next year cause Hakeem turned him into a dominating machine? Lebron owes Hakeem so much.

    Good move. No matter what, I don't think we will be able to say that Morey didn't go all in on this deal. I'm proud of the Rockets efforts.

    If this was anyone else but Dwight i would think it is almost a guarantee he'd be in Houston. Knowing this guy and his indecisiveness and poor judgement who knows.......
