    Like the article but Dwight has got to be kidding. We're talking about a guy who IMHO is as good, not as accomplished, but as good as any form of Jordan.


    Recruit please.

    Before James opts out, that's Houston's only leverage, player recruiting players. Howard AND Harden (James' lil bro) have to go all Parsons on Lebron (calling, texting, visiting, wooing).

    Take another step further and have Jerry jones reach out to Lebron too, as the Cowboys are Lebrons favorite team and Jerry appears very close to Lebron as well.

    Dwight is recruiting by his mere presence. I'm sure he will answer calls, and probably make a few of his own.

    It's not like he doesn't want them here. He's just giving them space. Melo and LeBron are going to get tons of calls over the next few weeks. They know we want them.

    The same Jerry Jones who lives and breathes Dallas, who is (professional) buds with Cubes who, BTW, has cap space to offer LBJ?

    What do the Mavericks have that we don't, besides a quickly-aging superstar, and a team as old as the Spurs? But wait, only difference? Spurs have actually done something... Dallas won it back in 2011, but yeah... 3... years... ago. :eek:

    What? Is Tony Romo gonna retire from football and play basketball with LeBron? Is Jerry Jones gonna be the next Mavericks Head Coach? Hysterical! :grin:

    Texan's needed to just take one for the team and draft Jonny Football. LeBron would have to come to Houston then..

    WAY TO GO TEXANS. RUIN FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL

    You guys are buffoons if you think Dwight is not recruiting.

    He is doing it right now --- read the article!

    Dwight is a smart man, quit thinking he is a dummy.

    Good read and thanks for the share.

    They aren't even hiding the desire to get rid of Lin/Asik.

    Confident the Rockets will land a big name either this summer or next. We'll be alright on that front. The bigger challenge is head coach.

    it has to be this summer or else we can't get a max FA + keep Parsons. We won't have cap room due to Parson's extension next offseason (assuming we match the offers) and the only way we can create room is by trading him at that point. Best case scenario is to sign Melo/LeBron outright/in a S&T then using Parsons bird rights, go over the cap and resign him to a 4 year deal.
