    This.

    I have never seen so much love for a player that has ultimately never really done anything.

    I guess he will have to be bald or gray for the "potential" term to stop being thrown around with him.

    I don't understand why they would do such a thing for a RFA.
    The only thing that makes sense is that he's so angry about the trade that he's threatening to take his QO?

    It's ridiculous to believe that you convince a RFA to take a discount when he had never gotten his $ and he has health issues esp with promo video crap.
    The only thing that makes sense is that his agent has threatened with his QO.

    Nice to hear he's coming to Houston, so we don't have to fly to him.

    It makes sense from a marketing perspective for the Rockets.

    No really a surprise if the current market price for Ryan Anderson is 20 mil per, I don't see how much worse it could be to resign Dmo.

    Either way they are just pieces.

    explain? Does any team makes promo videos for their RFA? Don't tell me that the Rockets are the only market sensitive team in the league?

    Rockets will put up "STAY" billboards for D-Mo.

    Hope its for cheap... I like the idea of D-Mo better than the actual D-Mo we have had the past 3 or so years. He's young and has a rare skill set but I'm not sure how much time he will actually be on the floor.


    He should thrive under MDA if he is going to thrive anywhere

    If he is healthy, he can still contribute as a good role player.

    Harden, too. He's bringing the A1 sauce which should surely seal the deal.
