    Morey is currently polishing his EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR trophy.

    I'm sure we're in good hands everyone. He'll improve the roster from last year.

    Wow! No ****? Holy cow! If true (haven't seen a post yet - not doubting justtxyank), Morey and Fertitta truly have gone all in. I'm assuming that we still keep Capela. Good grief! Major upgrade.

    Morey never fails to surprise. I'm well and truly shocked, and thrilled, assuming we keep Capela. Morey has to have something in place to reduce payroll. He has to!

    Again. OKC stayed the same. Denver was one win away. The Lakers got Lebron (biggest addition). The Suns and Mavs are going to be "better" cause they have two rookies leading their team into again becoming a tougher team to beat?...

    These are your words not mine.

    Go back to trolling on the low. Hopefully it'll easier for you to comprehend what's going on here.

    These are the guys that got the Rockets within an eyelash of a championship and you want to replace them in the name of diversity?

    OK

    I was kidding (on the level) that they need to add some diversity to the staff.

    OKC stayed the same after 1 year. It’s ok to accept they could be a better team (who was lookin good until Roberson)

    Denver being one win away actually helps my argument not yours lol shows how deep the west is. Did you expect Portland to end up the 3 seed?

    Suns and Mavs will be competitive but not because of just the rookies but just being more complete teams.

    That’s my logic. I understand it’s hard for to be an objective Rockets fan because of your oh so prosperous tenure at ClutchFans.

    Trolling? Child please.. you’re emotionally weak. All this because we don’t agree? Block me or move on kiddo.

    I think Capela is gone because Tilman was only going to pay the lux if we had landed Lebron.

    Morey's going to try to fill holes with cheap players like MCW.

    Harden's ego to not help recruit, CP3's greed for money and Anderson's terrible contract is our downfall.

    Did you hear? KD just took another 20mil paycut to play for the Warriors.

    That doesn't make any sense. Are you implying Morey is completely r****ded?

    Would make a lot more sense to let CP go than Capela, even if you believe this asinine theory

    That was a very Trump-like post in it's exaggeration, unfounded accusations, and general lack of truthfulness.

    You're "argument" still makes no sense.

    The bottom half of the entire Western Conference playoff race was decided between the smallest of margins.

    So for you to say that this team or that team will add a one or two wins at most isn't saying much.

    From 10 all the way to 3 the spots were still being decided well into the last week of the regular season. So again for you to say two of the bottom dwellers are going to be less cupcakes isn't saying much.

    And yeah, no one knew Portland was going to end up the 3 seed not even them until the season officially ended.

    Would love it true. But I doubt that will ever happen.

    I understand your pessimism as we’re watching other teams get better, but not even you believe what you’re writing.

    Tilman obviously just gave the “OK” on the massive Chris Paul contract and had he been reluctant to pay the luxury tax as you’ve so elloquently alluded to, don’t you think he’d let him walk instead of Clint?

    Secondly, yes, obviously Morey has to sign vet min players with potential upside. I’m not saying MCW is that player, but I’d say Luc and Gerald worked pretty well last year, wouldn’t you?

    Lastly, Harden probably has contractual obligation and was planned out well in advance he was going to China.

    Chris Paul is the head of the NBPA and had the 38 rule implemented so everybody knows he’s not going to take a pay cut when his other job is to tell players to make as much as they can. While aside the fact, he opted in so we were able to sign PJ last year.
