    I'd be unhappy in Houston too if my teammates were lazy asses who played no defense and refuse to pass me the ball when open.

    Most of these comments are ridiculous. Anyone who has a neutral view knows Dwight is not the man Houston needs. Dwight is a good person. He is a David Robinson/Tim Duncan w/out the killer instinct. When a player is injury proned such as Dwight, you must have a killer instinct. In two years, he will be more broken down than Kobe. The best deal Houston can make is trade him off for a relevant star or a couple significant role players.
    Dwight is not the problem. He will resolve himself regardless soon enough. Harden is the issue. He either needs to decide if he's a NBA star or a reality TV star. He needs to decide whether he wants to be the a warrior on the court to be recon with or the fame and glamour which he has favored as of recent. True champs do not settle for second place.

    "Howard, of course, has since moved on to Houston, where in Year 3 he is averaging a paltry 8.3 shots per game in an offense built around the ball-dominating James Harden, whose propensity to break out of the offense makes Kobe look timid by comparison."

    That's pretty funny.

    Howard doesn't add the value he once did - I am ok with trading him - but we need a pf and a pg. I'd rather get those two filled versus another center.

    We need a PG who can shoot and defend. Someone who isn't useless with the ball out of their hands. We need a stretch four in case D-Mo breaks down again.

    Howard is not a post up player. He has no post skills down low. He is better suited for the PnR but the Rockets don't run it or Howard does want to run at will. Howard thinks he does have back to the basket game which everyone can see he does not. Rockets need to decide IF trading Howard is what is needed to get the team back on track.

    Every GM will call Morey with low ball offers, and the offers won't get much better if the Rockets keep losing to mediocre teams.

    I'd be unhappy at work too if my coworker who makes the most money in the office gets to take every other day off.

    I'm not a huge Howard fan by any means--I only begrudgingly root for him because he's on the Rockets cuz I just don't like the way he plays or acts. But wouldn't anyone be unhappy playing next to Harden? The guy dribbles out the clock before chucking an out-of-offense 3 pointer, proclaims himself the best in the world, and doesn't play any defense. This team won't go anywhere until Harden matures and by then Howard will be washed up. I say go for the trade and get some guys. Maybe Winslow can help mask Harden's D?

    Possible Dwight Howard seems to be annoyed to be playing in the game.
