    And rank them.

    I think the order is

    1. Fertilla (revenue $$)

    2. Harden (friends with Russ, hated CP3)




    3. Morey (no way he would've done this deal if he weren't pressured into it)

    Harden I think is #1, there’s articles stating him and Westbrook called each other the moment PG was traded. They’ve been friends since elementary school and CP3 isn’t exactly the most fun guy to play with.

    Spot on.

    I think Tillman wanted this trade and went looking for reasons to get it done.

    I believe Cyberx when he said this was tilman and morey wasn't fully on board.

    however, that doesn't mean morey didn't want to swap Paul for rus, I think he probably didn't want to pay the asking price. I bet he knew the market for rus was us or Miami and there was room to negotiate price. it was probably tilman to told him not to let another one slip away and to close the deal.

    so I think morey probably feels as though we improved, opened the window a little longer, but paid too much.

    Harden
    Tilman
    Morey, because if he objected he'd have been fired

    Who gives a crap?

    Aren't there threads discussing the general 'who wanted who' thing? You could just speculate in those threads?

    As in, stopped reading the thread title.

    Sam Presti.

    He was on his way to getting fired soon, but was somehow able to spin losing 3 MVPs and another top 10 player as a huge win because everyone is completely blinded by the sheer number of draft picks he was able to get regardless of how they won't be worth anything until 5 years from now.

    I don't care , Felecia's gone. Hated that guy before he got here and hated having to root for him because he wore a Rockets uniform. Glad to see him go.

    Seeing him bark like a chihuahua at the refs all the time was annoying.

    Tilman and his sons are fans... fans love watching Westbrook. James hated CP and loves Westbrook. Moreys excel showed CP along with MCW and Melo is better

    I only care about Tilman will pay luxury tax or not after RW trade.

    Please pay the tax and win a championship!!!

    This is fair. I can totally see a situation (since we're all speculating) where Morey is thinking to himself:
    this could be great or this could be a disaster since we've boned our future but whatever, I'll quit working for this egomaniac of a boss before the ship sinks. I personally do think the Rockets overpaid market because of Harden and Tortilla.

    First two.

    Honestly it’s a great trade the more I think about it. This absolutely forces the Rockets to abandon “Chuck It Ball” and will make them have to run actual plays from time to time.

    Also it’ll be nice to have someone else lob to Capela.
