    This is not for the random trades, but for either personnel moves that you expected or hoped that the rockets would have done either preseason or earlier this season.

    Mine- All the 09ers should have gotten serious burn, I'm talking about starting Thabeet at center, Jordan Hill at pf, Williams at sf, and keeping martin and Lowry. If you honestly believe these guys had all the chances to prove themselves in a rockets jersey then you are not being honest with yourself. If they all had gotten serious burn, Morey would have definitely known what he had in real game situations as opposed to declining all the options. What's the worst that could happen- they lose so much- they net you a first round pick. Or they play good, and you find out which ones are worth keeping

    I would never have drafted both Parsons and Morris, now we have all these sf and no pt.

    carry on

    You don't have to read it. You can make your own suggestions if you like. But starting Dalembert has achieved nothing but average mediocrity, so there you have it.

    Why? It would have been a great way to tank!

    I would have been fine with "developing our young guys" (tanking), but there's no way in hell Thabeet would even sniff the starting five even on an all out tank team. He's a long shot from just being a serviceable back up big.

    I have to agree, and trading for Kaman will do nothing but continue that trend.

    As we've all b****ed about since last season, it's time to hop off the fence and either set up a garage sale/start the rebuilding process or make a BIG move to acquire a game-changing piece and legitimately contend. We've been waiting on the latter to come to fruition for quite some time... doesn't seem likely, and Morey's most desirable "assets" continue to get older.

    We can either continue to drown in mediocrity, or follow the Seattle/OKC blueprint and get this franchise back to title contention in 3-5 years.

    True.

    Be nice mr. herrera. put up some valid points or shut up

    more points
    never would have signed dalembert or jeff adrien, i don't care how much they are getting paid- they are affecting the development of the team

    scola should have been the 6th man from the start of the season. too old to be running with the young guns

    Would have traded and will still trade c.lee and lowry (Lowry's stock is not gonna get higher, its all downhill from here)

    I would have definitely set goal plan from the start of the season. Maybe not make it public, but at least inform the players the direction the team is going

    Fire Morey after this season if he brings back another mediocre/average season. and another low pick. Let him know he's on the hot seat

    you're crazy. dalembert has been playing great. he's rebounding well, playing defense, and getting blocks, which is what we brought him in for. he's miles above any of our other "centers"

    Dalembert is old, he's not in our plans past next season at the most. Dalembert is not a game changing player. Sure he might have a double double against some unsuspecting team, but there is a reason, we were the only team team to offer him a deal even after all the big men were gone.

    However, Dalembert on the other hand is affecting the growth and playing time of our young players who have the potential to be in the rockets plan for the future.

    So ****ing happy rookies make great contribution to the board with fresh discussions. See, this is why we need new members. Folks who have been around longer don't have fresh ideas like tanking and playing the class of 2009 scrubs.
