    Man, Patrick can write... and this is so damn funny.

    Carl Herrera faints.

    Good read.

    And on the Rockets, everyone can be potentially traded, except for Harden and Howard.

    Lol. Patrick rubbing salt in the wound at this point. Even HE knows Morey has no clue what the hell he's doing at times

    I honestly think we can forget about bringing players back to Houston. Lots of bad blood. I like this story, but I'll never pay attention to "Houston wants to re-acquire so-and-so" again.

    What bad blood? The only players that have talked badly about the Rockets: Charles Barkley and Chandler Parsons. You want them to get gift bags when they get traded? Gold Watches?

    Great read. He doesn't write like a sasquatch. He would be great to have on this time but truthfully he doesn't do anything that our current bounty of PFs can't do, except maybe shoot the 3 better.

    Well, then we let Thomas Robinson go. We got Jordan Hamilton and then let him go as well.
    Reminds me of someone close to me, always on the lookout for bargains but never actually made money.

    Hes a key piece in the Toronto offense. He also closes out games with them. He's their best pick and roll defender. Very smart. Shoots a consistent 3 ball.

    I'm still waiting for Morey to re-acquire him. Don't tell me we don't want his stretch-4 talents at $6 million per year.

    Early part of his story. This makes me feel ... It is a business, but there has to be something more real.
