    Houston failed the test when they leaked the news he was at that school the other week. People cant keep their mouths shut.

    Absolutely fine with Bron not coming here unless if he goes to LA and Kawhi might be shipped East and that weakens another contender. Can still go after Jimmy Buckets and others and bring the whole squad back (except Ryno) for another run. Not sweating it at all.

    He is going to play in the house tha Kobe built and play in his shadows. All that Bs about championship mode and playing with smart players. ALL HYPE.

    If he doesnt end up here... i am happy that he will never even sniff the finals again as long as the Warriors and Rockets are intact.

    Morey is going to do what he does best.

    Just want Bum anderson and Ariza off this team for upgrades

    ...and still lose to the Warriors 4-1 assuming they even make to the WCF. PG is good, but not that good.

    It's okay... we already have James. Now we just need another player by the name of Lebron to round it out. Boom! we have our Lebron James

    I think they will get over .500. That would still be a pretty good team.

    It is less likely but...my hope is the "New Math" comes into play here. Help me out here but what is so bad about renouncing your rights on someone?

    Renounce the rights to Chris Paul ($35 mil) & Trevor Ariza ($14 mil) which eliminates their cap holds.

    If our Salary Cap is 80 million right now and we trade Nene, Anderson, Gordon with picks to a team or perhaps a few...that would drop us to ~39 million.

    Sign CP3 and LeBron to $31 mil each. Puts you right at $101 million projected cap. You still have the $7 mil cap hold on Capela that you can match no matter what which likely ends up in the $15 mil range. Puts salaries at $116 million. If there is a hard cap at $129 million we still have $13 million in minimums which could get us 4-5 guys to fill out our bench.

    CP3
    Harden
    LeBron
    Tucker
    Capela

    I am just an optimistic person even though I know the odds right now. Do I have anything here that isn't something that possible?

    Damn not bad..... Why would the Rockets be hard capped?

    They wont.

    Would still have MLE, BLE, and vet min to sign players.

    Very nice take tho.

    Weird question considering he's not coming here but does adding the best player to a team that was up 3-2, does this team beat the Warriors?
