    Why are u so eager to make people apologize? I dont think most of the people here doubted that Jeremy is on the trading block. The problem with Deeks was that he said Rockets wanted to move Jeremy because Beverley was better, which NO other source confirmed what so ever.

    Hmm... what happens when Beverley gets into foul trouble (happens quite often) or goes 5-6 games without scoring (probably an anomaly but still...)? I like the scrappy kid a lot, but don't know if he's starting PG caliber yet.

    Houston is trying to dump Jeremy Lin's salary, going so far as to prioritise cap relief over young basketball assets.

    What does what Morey is doing have anything to do with dumping and salary relief?

    Jeremy Lin "USED" the Rockets for his Pay Day.. First thing out his mouth was Wow I really didn't want to live NY. He knew his value was in NY but he knew Linsanity was all a dream and he "Had" to cash in on it... So he won't be bitter if the rockets plan to cash in and trade him.. a Win Win.. Knicks played it smart.. all parties should be happy...

    I was mainly pointing to the fact that Lin was on the trading block, which was what Deeks tweeted out first. Now Berger says that Lin is on the trading block. Now you equate the two. So there's no difference in that at all.

    Morey was the one who gave him the contract, because he didn't want NY to match. Lin only signed his name on the dotted line. Just like Howard is supposed to do. Nobody forced Morey into writing up a big contract. He pays what he thinks someone is worth.

    This doesn't make any sense. Why would the Rockets sell Dwight on opportunities in China and then trade away what would give him that opportunity? Dwight has stated he wants to play with a big man like Asik, so again why would the Rockets want to trade him away as well?

    Clutch is not trying to suck up to anyone. He's merely showing someone the respect they deserve. I feel bad for you guys.
