    I'd love to have Howard... Only if he can make 85% of his FT's...

    Trade Asik for Kevin Love. (Morey can do magic)
    LOL

    Then you can have a Lin, Harden, Parsons, Love, Howard starting lineup.
    Fun for all!

    when you consider contracts and value

    Asik >>>>>>> Howard.. I rather Morey spend the money on a PF that can stretch the floor, hit his free throws.. bang in the paint when needed .. I agree with others if Bosh was available.... Bosh >>>> Howard.

    Howard is just not worth a max at this point.. he brings too much drama.. has no post game.. can't be a go to guy down the stretch.. cant hit the midrange shot.. will only clog up the lane for Harden and Lin.. and he may already be past his prime since his athleticism will only decline from here on out.. so BOOOOO TO HOWARD..

    most NBA players dont even shoot 85% FTs... ie Lin shoots only 80% for his career

    If we're actually in position to get Howard, it would mean he's not going back to the Lakers, so a S&T likely becomes an easy agreement. So I don't fear the cap aspect of the deal.

    As for people opposing it, which other player is capable of bringing the Rockets closer to contender status? Josh Smith? Not even a given since he may like Atlanta given their surge. Millsap? Jefferson? Seriously? Aldridge and Love, for all the speculations we have here, are long, long, long shots. And CP3 has absolutely zero chance of signing here. The 2014 FA has some nice players right now. But many of them will get extended half way next year. The Rockets are becoming short on trade chips already after giving away their premium chips in the Harden deal.

    All things considered, assuming Howard's injury isn't career threatening, there is bar none no other plausible candidate with nearly the talent and skills of Howard. If I had to gamble the next 4 years on a player, Howard beats out every other plausible player.

    screw Dwight and his antics.


    he is the opposite of a winning culture. I don't want the Rockets franchise to have anything to do with this joker

    Don't worry, Morey is at work. I am disappointed that we didn't turn Mochado into a 2nd round pick, but that's ok, with our style of playing, we can even sell Toney D for a good deal.

    Dream Mode ON!

    Can you blame him for not wanting to come to the team we had assembled the last year or two? We were an old, low talent, scrappy unit with next to no upside. The reasons he wanted to leave Orlando, they had no hope going forward, the situation we had better was much more flexibility to blow it all up, but that would have been useless for Dwight.

    I'd say a little like the Kobe-Shaq era without the drama

    Nene is playing well on a terrible team.

    We had a chance to get Amare but we were the ones who backed out so I'm not sure he really applies.

    Did we ever really try to get Bynum? I suspect Morey did not want him and that's why we didn't up our offer to Orlando.

    CP3 is leading the Clippers to an amazing season and he is in the MVP discussion.
