    Just because he is better than Bruno does not make him good.

    I'm guessing he was in the trade for salary match purposes

    Is he named after a chemical element or a monster from a Japanese movie?

    So. What happened to this guy? He showed some promise as a 20 year old rookie, but he’s been trending downward since that first season. He has some skill, I’m actually looking forward to seeing what he can do if they give him some minutes.

    It’s fitting. Today feels like a Radionic kick in the Kurucs.

    His comparison said Sam Dekker. I say right on baby, team, season, and talent.

    By the way good luck cracking the rotation with Exum, Olidipo, McLemore, House, Gordon, and Nwaba in front of the line at space mountain.

    If you just glance at his name quickly.......... you can kind of tell who his game resembles.

    Rodman Kukoc

    I think we got one here guys.

    This would be enough proof to me that he was in fact the next great thing but a las Kurucs is a you know... a accused domestic abuser.

    If we hold onto this guy, I might have to abandon the Rockets. I'll put up with a lot, but cheering for some violent thug that beats up women is too far. I hope someone can tell me it may not be a trustworthy story, but if he did and the Rockets know about it and still traded for him... I think I'm out.

    I'm a great fan and have been for years, but hiring violent criminals is against my nature.

    EDIT: Looked into it more and it certainly looks a bit fishy. Late claim, went to Las Vegas with him the next day. No evidence presented.
