    Shaq is a little too nasty with his 30 and 15 requests for a big man.....

    That was a deliberate slap at the Rockets. So disrespectful and condescending the way he said it.

    That is Shaq for you......a dominating big man but also wants to dominate you with words but he is a belittler.

    Shaq rarely praises centers. A few weeks ago he also mentioned him as one of his favourite young players along with Ant, Wemby, Doncic and Zion.

    Better off for both parties. Sengun gets a team that actually wants him. Rockets get to build around the real core that is Jalen Green without anyone getting in his way.

    But it's deserved.

    If this is true:



    ...and if it refers to Stone, then Stone must be fired. As long as they keep a guy in charge that STILL doesn't understand that Sengun is by far the Rockets' best player, this team does not deserve Sengun.

    I don't understand how anyone can look at this team and prioritize players like Jalen over Sengun. Literally everyone outside the Rockets is praising the potential of Sengun and the team that has him doesn't appreciate what he has to offer.

    If they don’t value him they need to trade him. And when he’s successful on another team Tilman will continue to be the joke of an owner that he is. This all starts at the top. This is what happens when non basketball minds like Stone and Fertitta Jr are hired to run a basketball team.

    Stone do not want to give up on Jalen because…Jalen is Stone’s failure…Stone drafted Jalen. Stone had 4 1st round picks in his first year as GM, and we only hit on one of them. Josh Christopher and the other guy from Spain were BUSTS. Jalen is a 6th Man. Stone needs to go

    I would have advised against leaking that out before the offseason if I were Jackson Gatlin.
