    Westbrick was a stat chaser with all his teammates deferring comically to him so as to PAD stats.

    What is this "competing with Portland for #4" BS I keep seeing? Dame/CJ/Jusuf > CP3/Harden/Capela??!!

    Ultimately, if Harden & CP3 can co-exist, our starting 5 + PJ, Luc, EGO, & Nene is just an incredibly deep and versatile team, so I still think we should be able to compete with OKC, SA, &, at least to a certain extent, GSW.

    I hope we can get something for Clint. Because Chris and James are gonna make Capela's value go up even more while further increasing his chances of getting a max next summer.

    Wow so many overreacting chicken little chicken ***** here predicting doom and gloom before a single game has even been played. Considering the complete roster overhaul, it's going to take time (if even possible) to integrate a guy who cried about getting the last shot, a historical inefficient chucker who only properly played team ball in Team USA with the biggest ball hog since Kobe. Let's see if they can even do that first or if the implode trying.

    We were a historic offense last year and we got even better. CALM THE **** DOWN PEOPLE.

    I think this is a sure bet, so when people say "We have nothing else to trade." it is not true.

    We just didn't trade our highest valued players to get Melo.

    You guys are such ****ing babies. Serves y'all right for having the greater than thou mentality that melo would only come to us.

    It sucks that we don't get him but we still have a damn good team to compete with. Stop being such b****es. Geez.

    My thoughts exactly. Rockets and Warriors are the only teams with franchise players signed for 5+ years.

    Rockets and Texans love living that average lifestyle!

    Let's go Astros.

    Very happy about this as a Rockets fan and great news as an NBA fan!! OKC with 3 ball hogs will be fun to watch. Just watch the media eat this up and say Melo puts them over the top and he's a great fit as opposed how horrible he would've been on our team.

    With his history he's a ticking bomb imo to become even worse of an albatross. An injured albatross.
    Not reactionary but I had been saying that since day 1 we signed him.

    Agree. Unfortunately he's an injury waiting to happen.

    Doc Rocket posted

    And Capela gets to stay.

    Guessing he was the one being asked for with Anderson.
