    We FINALLY have a GM that knows how to put together a team! Everything I've been preaching for over the past 15 yrs is finally coming true!

    Forwards with length that can score, big guards to surround your primary players and bringing in young players with potential! We have it all in less than a month.

    Stone has took over and in less than 1 month he has made chicken **** into chicken salad....I commend you my Brother!

    Sixers fans are saying the same thing about morey reshaping their team for the better, after he dumped horford and loaded up on quality shooters.

    stone is having a good offseason. wood is a huge get, but did cost a huge piece in roco. in theory wood is a better fit, but its unclear if he's a better player than roco. stone did a great job standing firm on not trading harden and Westbrook. I think we can actually keep harden after this year if we see some success.

    boogie, brown, Tate, are not guaranteed to produce anything, and if they do they are unlikely to move the needle at all.

    if he manages to dump gordon's contract, or better yet, flip some combination of gordon/house/PJ for another starter in his 20's like wood, then I'd be singing his praises. but right now we basically have a fair, somewhat lateral move in roco for wood, and nothing else.

    He made us
    Younger
    Far more less predictable
    Bigger

    And I think he has Gordon and House to play around with to get more help. I like him so far. The young man was thrown into an absolute firestorm and he has handled himself well

    That's because we already have the foundation of the team already, in Harden and Westbrook.

    It's been a month. If Stone can convince Harden to stay with all the players he's wheeling and dealing, then we can grade Stone.

    This may very well be the dumbest post I have ever read on this site. 100 percent agree with OP and trust me....Cousins moves the needle!!!

    some will probably blast you for this take, but it’s very fair IMO.

    so far, I consider it a success that there haven’t been any big mistakes. We didn’t become Jordan’s Hornets...that’s something.

    Wood is an upgrade offensively and downgrade defensively. He fits “better” with Westbrook, though I don’t think he can truly “fix” Westbrook.

    Stone has 1 splash (Wood), 2 solid moves (Tate and Brown) and one high reward/zero risk move. That’s a good start. It doesn’t make us a favorite, but it’s small steps in the right direction.

    The jury is out but he did create statistically greatest offense in history so we will see.

    We're back!! That's what I'm f**** talkin' about. This is why I didn't panic sell at the bottom a week or two ago when the ship seemed to be crashing. Now the Rockets are actually looking pretty good.

    I don't see anyone laughing at us now...? Where did they do? LOL

    No doubt, and low post threats. The last couple of times that we had that we made the WCF with Howard and Capela. I love it!
