    Lol cute. Players with bust potential-MAYBE All star potential vs a player with franchise player potential. No one would accept a few mid round picks for a 1st overall even in a draft with a weak 1st pick which Davis clearly is not.

    Asik, Davis, Parsons, Martin, Lin would be a much better starting lineup. Rockets would have two blockers. Motiejunas, Patterson, Douglas still on the bench. The Rockets still have Toronto pick. The Rockets would still be youngest team in NBA. They would have cap flexibility. The Rockets would be a free agent destination with Davis.

    I am very confident in Morey for getting Jones and white level guys. I am very happy at starting center and point guard. The Rockets would be having a great two way shooting guard from being an absolutely dominating defensive team.

    This is the best post in the thread. Rockets would be better off (in the perspective of having hope to eventually win a championship) than they are now if they traded their entire roster for Anthony Davis, signed 11 vets to min contracts, and lost every game next year by 50 points.

    Not too upset, but I'd still like to hear why you feel like this isn't a random and unrealistic trade.

    Daugherty was pretty awesome.

    btw, did you say 'no' for any bust #1 pick regardless of the other guys?
    Olowokandi was still much better than all that crap. Turkcan had a great Euro career, but he didn't do anything in the NBA, and the other two guys were scrubs.
    Ron Artest vs. Elton Brand? I'd take Brand all things considered.
    Kwame vs. Collins&co? Collins has his uses, but I'd take Kwame fairly easily.
    K-Mart vs. Turkoglu? That's a tough one because K-Mart had an arguably better but shorter prime.

    Oden, Pervis and Joe Smith seem the only 'no' to me, maybe K-Mart. Then again, Oden, Pervis and K-Mart were easily the biggest talents in those equations, just had bad injuries.

    Thanks!! Can't be much worse than all of your terrible threads and posts. Keep working on it, maybe you'll get it one day (but I doubt it).

    My posts and threads aren't as bad as you say. I think most of are just mad because you didn't think of it first.:p
    Also, our rookies are no where near as bad as the scrubs you listed.

    Terrence Jones "A lesser Howard"

    Jeffery Taylor will be a lotto pick
    Badlee's best case analysis- James Harden offense with Battier Defense.

    And that's just a couple to name.

    52 clutchfans are delusional. You make that deal everyday. I don't care if Davis becomes a bust.

    Now who sounds delusional? If that were to happen and Davis did become a bust while our three became all-stars, you would be sick.
    But i don't see him becoming a bust. Still he is not worth all three of our rookies. One of them could easily be just as good as him.

    There is not much difference from Davis and John Henson. Other than where they were drafted.
