    If you are another team I think it is easy to convince yourself that the reason why Oladipo's advanced stats and stats that measure winning all suck is because he is stuck in a bad situation. But we know better, he actually sucks.

    Won the oladipo trade by accident. Got kpj for free only because he fell in our lap. Wood and Tate were targets by Morey anyways so Stone doesn't get credit.

    You know, at some point if you are getting lucky time after time you may be the one creating the luck and deserve some damn credit.

    Second best player on the team after C Wood and easily the best leader. This one was a good pickup by Stone

    I'm starting to think that trading Brictor for Kelly O was the ultimate draft insurance move by Stone.

    Miami is worse after the trade, so if we fall out of the top 4, their pick is better for us. 4D chess

    Miami dropping out of the playoffs is not gonna happen. All Olynyk does is put our tank in jeopardy. He's also expiring as well.

    I need the sarcasm font lol

    Will be interesting if we try to keep Olynyk after not wanting to pay Allen's upcoming contract though. What $$ will Kelly be expecting in free agency?

    No its my fault, I should have known better. You and I have been aligned on most things these days.

    He'll probably go looking to get paid big(more than we can afford) or go to a contender. If we sign him...I will be surprised,but then again...you never know. Patrick may like him. :D

    Consider me an Olynyk believer now.

    Going need to see this defense translate into wins however.

    Dumb player for a team rebuilding. Much rather have draft picks. Would have been a good player during the Harden years to have. Makes zero sense on this team.

    It is possible to win a couple of rings with Kelly if you surround him with the right players.

    A bench mob of Sterling Brown, DJ Augustin, Kelly Olynyk, Tate and Kenyon Martin Junior sounds good to me going forward.
    The starting five needs work though

    Kelly O is the perfect stretch 4 that the Rockets were looking for for almost a decade. Strong big that hits around 40% of his threes. Too we bad we got him at the worst possible time. I think he's miles ahead of PJ, and has been for years. He would have looked even better with Harden.

    Christian Wood is to Anthony Davis as Olynyk is to Kevin Love.

    Also, DJ Augustine is really good. These guys are going to win us games and significantly delay the rebuild. These guys are everything a team could want in a non max rotational player.

    I'd add Nwaba and DJ Wilson/Ray Spalding to that bench mob and move Tate to starting 5.

    Porter-Wood-Tate-draft pick-FA

    But what to do about House, Wall and EGo?

    It’s sad. Put James Harden and Chris Paul on this team and we win the title easily

    Paul/Augustin
    Harden/Porter Jr
    Tate/Nwaba/Brown
    Olynyk/Martin Jr
    Wood/Wilson
