    I don't to know what to make of that hint Doc Rocket's thread. Looks like Cato to me, as he is on the IR. Maybe Cato + Role player to Phoenix for Robinson, Marion? I don't know why the Rockets would bring Hakeem back just to trade him 2 days later.

    Allz I know is that if I was named Carrol I woulda learned how to fight as a kid. I bet that guy's pretty tough [​IMG]

    As far as Rox trades go, Cato is lookin' pretty safe right now. Think about it. If Hakeem's going to leave and we have nothing to gain this season from it (which is the way it's gonna be), then... I'll just continue asking my mother why she named me Carrol. I'll need some outlet for my rage at our losses...

    Or I'll keep Cato and pressure him into earning his goddam money. What? Hey, I'm outta options. Smallball only goes so far.

    You bring Dream back just to trade him two days later because you have to show he can be on the floor and that he's a "team player" (although he wants to get the hell outta here) and because it would look too suspicious otherwise.

    I'm sorry that I don't view the Rockets in the same light as some, but I just don't see the Rockets as a playoff contender this year. They just don't have enough difference makers on the team, yet. Hopefully after this draft and FA period, they can find the player (or 2) that will help them get to the next level, but IMO developing an identity and improvement is more important, and more likely, this season.
