    Then why play Troy and Shved. Neither guys impressed on D either.

    Had no idea why we gave up two 2nds for a guy who isn't going to be in the rotation.

    Honestly it's a tough choice between him and Terry, Prigioni has better ball handling and can make some nice passes in short spurts, but Terry is a better shooter and we desperately need that.

    Pablo is a small bandaid and a short time decision. His age does not say he will be in the league long term.

    It's about mileage too. He doesn't seem to have the legs of a 37 yr old ball player.

    Lots of 0's on the stat line tonight for The Prig in big minutes.

    I repeat the question: What is even the point of Pablo Prigioni? Not just on the Rockets, but why is he even in the NBA?

    Apparently, 12mins of playing time is considered as "big minutes" :rolleyes:

    Big enough to make a shot or grab a rebound or steal a ball or block a shot if you're anyone except The Prig.

    Prigioni kinda sucks...I'd rather see Mchale work in Nick Johnson before the playoffs. At least he can drive to the basket.

    12 minutes? Not very fair to judge him on one night of play after not playing for two straight weeks. That's like saying he is a assist God because he got 5 assist in 6 minutes. They kept him in with harden which isn't a good idea since prigs is not a great shooter. He should only be playing when harden sits. I like what every single one of our players and what they bring to the table. O just get annoyed when McHale miss manages them.

    I bet the Spurs would love to have Prig on their team right now, especially Manu..

    He has a lot of international experience and is a fossil but each time I look at him as he steps out on the court in Rockets uniform, I cant help but wonder what the hell is he doing out there.

    His body language makes me nervous, when its supposed to inspire confidence. You can see that nervousness in his shots as well.

    I guess bumming around on the Knicks does take a lot out of you.

    Did anyone see another Rockets PG reject (Shved) post 21pts 7assists and 1 turnover in 36 minutes playing time against the Spurs.

    Schved is now in NY, and his defense is so bad that he merited a mention from Zach Lowe

    http://grantland.com/the-triangle/the-2015-marc-gasol-all-stars-your-guide-to-the-most-watchable-players-in-the-nba/

    10. Alexey Shved’s Defense

    Shved’s been piling up stats across the box score, filling minutes for the league’s most miserable watch — but if he keeps blatantly mailing in defense, he’ll remain on the edge of NBA extinction. Shved treats every perimeter player like a total nonshooter, giving them a laughable amount of air space in which to drive. And when those players do drive, Shved just backs up with them, maintaining the same distance. He’s allergic to contact.

    I told you guys he was fools gold. Especially the idiots who defended Morey saying he shoots 40% or so from 3 point land so is a good fit.

    LOL 40% on 2 point attempts a game is fools gold.

    So much for all that anlaysis and number crunching by Murray and his team.

    Eye stats > Morey stats.

    You truly suck. Let's wait for the playoffs before we judge trades, shall we?

    And you misspelled analysis

    Without Prigioni, our roster consists of two point guards. One is 79 years old and one plays with such reckless abandon that he may injure himself any given night.

    If one of them went down right before/during the playoffs every single member on this board would gladly give up two second round picks for a veteran point guard.

    It's insurance.
