    I just hate those moves.
    They had plan A to bring Lopez and then Brooks in Sign and trade.
    When Lopez went they fricked out and put it all on Brooks.
    Just a bad panic move

    Still laughing. When we had the #4 overall pick and $60 mil in cap room, this is not what I thought we'd end up with.

    Ime and his staff better perform many miracles in order to reach even 35 wins next season. Hell, maybe even 30.

    A competent point guard like Fred VanVleet will do wonders for the Rockets’ young players. Dillon Brooks is a 3&D guy you overpay if you are contending and need that type of player. The Rockets aren’t that type of team.

    The guy can defend that's all i care about. Lebron is old & grossly overrated, I agree with everything he said

    the crazy thing is that if he got like 2/12 i wouldn't have been happy, 4/80 is unconscionable. He's truly awful and unplayable on offense, to do that to our young guys is just cruel

    Can't wait to dump another first in two years just like they did with Ryan Anderson to be rid of the guy.

    who did you think we were going to end up with? Giannis? Jokic?

    we struck out with Brooks and Lopez. We have to specs our cap money, who do yoI propose signing?

    The bum Brooks gets more money than Austin Reavers.

    Pathetic

    Ugh. We might have upped our defense but I can't get excited about signing guys who are not great shooters.
