    Third, because those haters will move on to someone else next season. Some people have no life and need someone or something to hate on.

    For all the Dragic fans who roasted Morey for not giving in to that 4th year player option, kindly step back and bow to Morey. You too were fooled by the great and powerful GM master.

    So be kind to other GMs in their dealing with Morey.

    This is the most lopsided legitimate poll I've ever seen here.

    No, unfortunately cash will not help us keep any players. It might make Les' cringe slightly less at the end of the year when his accountant tells him what the luxury tax bill ended up at.

    This very statement shows you everything you need to know about LOFs.

    We don't care about Lin. We care about ridding ourselves of his fans.

    I doubt it. He's no James Anderson. Speaking of, I wonder if he'll sign for vet min.?

    If "light us up" means "jumping in the air with the ball and turning it over" then yes.

    Did not want to give Lakers anything, even for the late pick. Guess 6ers asked too much.

    Maybe Morey did this to ensure Carmelo is not going to LA.

    Well it's the Lakers, a major franchise. LOFs are happier than Rockets fans with this trade.

    Only to give the win to Houston at the end of the game with a crucial turnover and and airballing a potential game winner. :)
