    Could the "real" reason he came here be that we just have a better team?

    Well, that deal doesn't look so bad considering it landed us Dwight! :grin:

    Let it be known that I also told Dwight to come to Houston, via this board.

    I'm the reason D12 is here! In 2011 I wrote a persuasive essay in English class to persuade Dwight to come to the Rockets, (which was received quite well by the class!) I highlighted Kyle Lowry and Luis Scolas underrated games and how Houson was a thriving city that has everything a big city has to offer while still feeling like home... So yes thank me, I'm why!

    I too would like to take credit for Howard coming to Houston. I didn't do anything in particular, but I feel I deserve the most credit.

    Iowa State has given the Rockets Royce White and Kelvin Cato's contract ... ok, and Zaid Abdul-Aziz, too. So there's that.

    Now all we need is Matt Maloney to take Lebron James to IHOP and tell him about how we're still paying his contract off.

    Kelvin Cato is a professional and a true leader. I hope he retires a Rocket.

    .... Really..? That's a totally absurd comparison.

    ... IHOP is nowhere near Pappadeaux level.

    Know a guy who helped Cato move around '02. He said Cato said "F Houston".
