    Seems if LeBron goes to LA, George will be there. George might already be there.

    i know everyone is excited about the LBJ part but if Hou can flip Anderson for Favors and JJ thats a huge chest move for the summer moves

    The Rockets are 37-13 through 50 games and two games back of the freaking Warriors. To have max room or even get near the general ballpark of that for both CP3 and LeBron, you'd looking at a stripped-down roster comprised primarily of 19- and 20-year-olds and guys making the minimum. Oh, and both CP3 and LeBron are as in as "win now" a mode as it gets. The grass is greener for CP3 in Houston, with or without LeBron.

    JJ having a great January. If JJ and Favors for Ryno were a thing - please let it be, it sounds too good to be true - I wonder how Favors fits in. He's a good roll man and good defensively. I can see him playing 20-25 minutes a game depending on the scenario (Capela sitting or in foul trouble, etc..)

    If that happens, who's our 3 and 4?

    Harden will make a formidable trio. We need to be healthy and go deep into the playoffs for Lebron to consider us. Go Rockets!

    It also matters what contracts they are looking for. Both CP3 and Lebron might be at the age where contract duration and winning matters more than maxing out on money. Not odds I would be willing to bet on, but still something that they are at the age where they consider it.

    I think JJ would be great. I wouldn't want him to run much ISO, I'm just more intrigued in him as a great shooter and an emergency shot creator

    if you are lebron, u need to keep people guessing...of course LA and other teams are in the mix.

    ultimately he knows what he needs to do to win a championship and take out gsw..either join them (terrible PR move) or join the next best team..the rockets. what he doesnt have time for is a young lakers team. he might as well stay in cleveland.

    JJ + Tyson Chandler from the buyout market would be ideal.

    Paul/Gordon
    Harden/JJ/Green
    Ariza/Luc
    Anderson/PJ
    Capela/Nene/Tyson

    That's a true championship caliber team that could get the 1 seed and challenge the Warriors.

    Not to mention, "family" means a lot to CP. We saw that in the mini-documentary. He doesn't want to jerk his kids around to different cities. It is obvious CP is putting roots in Houston.

    Wow Cyberx droppin that LBJ bomb.

    Why would he want to go to LA? Lebron seems like the type who wants to compete for a title... I don't care what moves the LAL make this summer... it won't be nearly as good a team as what the Rockets will have.

    Ask CP3 if he thinks Joe Johnson is trash.

    DM would go down as hall of fame GM, if LeBron joins the rockets to take down the warriors
