    Where are the highlights?

    This is only 2 years ago.


    This is last year before the shut down.


    The terror the Rockets could put on the league with a center rotation of Capela, Chandler, AND Howard. Chandler and Howard can rotate games being the backup center which will preserve both of them for the playoffs. Rebounding turns from a weakness to a ridiculous strength.

    Nostalgia anyone? Anyone??


    Anyways, I never expected the Westbrook trade. Might as well at least try to sign him. The goal is a championship. Get the most talent you can get and go all in. If he doesn't work out, cut him like Melo.

    Nostalgia for the guy who single-handedly torpedoed an entire season of the team I've loved for nearly four decades?

    Nah. Hard pass on this joker.

    I don't see why not. It could magical like that 1st season. Especially now that he has help.

    Aight...maybe not just nostalgia. But there were good times with the bad. It's in the past now. I mean...I understand Dwight has his..."isms" to say the least. But he would be an effective center for the Rockets, ego aside of course.

    If he truly has learned from his career from a superstar to journeyman, he could be that X-Factor the Rockets need to get to the promise land.

    Could you put aside your disdain for Howard if him signing with the Rockets guaranteed the Rockets a championship this upcoming season? Or at the least guaranteed Finals appearance?

    Yeah, well that's the thing. Everything I've ever known or heard about Dwight Howard says if the Rockets sign him, they're guaranteed to NOT win a title. Fool me once, etc.

    If you could sign his talent and skill without having to take the personality, it's a no-brainer. Unfortunately, Dwight himself is a no-brainer.

    I would sign him. I think he is ready to everything he can to win.

    I think he signs with the clippers. They are desperate enough at center to take a flier on Howard.

    Hate this dude. If he never spoke, then he'd be worth more than whatever he's gonna get.
