Really, really hesitant to bring Gasol in. Like slick shoes said, the post game is not really what they want to run, and I feel like Marc is a little bit past his prime.
I do think Morey will make some kind of move, but it will be the typical deadline deal with a rotation player coming in. I don't have any ideia who that player will be.
Really love watching Gerald Green play. Even if you don't know, you can tell he's a hometown kid by that passion that he displays. Awesome to watch, especially since I thought he was nothing more than a glorified dunker currently.
On a last one, can we get this place going again? This is by far the best site to discuss Rockets basketball, and it's been pretty quiet as of late.
I'm surprised no one wants Gasol, but I can understand why. He has added the 3-pt. shot to his game so he can stretch the floor for us, but if the match-up dictates, or the advantage is there, I like the option of being able to feed Gasol in the post. I very much like what I'm seeing from Capela this year and it appears I was wrong (once again) about his passion for the game. I think a time-share at center would work, but the odds are we don't get him so no need to worry about it.
Batum's elbow may be more serious than I am giving it credit for. I just kind of figured he was in a slump, but often a trade can fix that...especially going to a team with two set-up-men like Paul and Harden.
Boogie would be AMAZING. It is unfathomable to me that a team with both he and Anthony Davis is currently sitting at 19-19. I can't wrap my mind around it...all I can think is it has to be the coach, right? Yet, we've got years and years to look at these two putting up monster stats with no W's to go along with them. They should be destroying this league.
I would love for this place to get a little more active. It is partly my fault as there was a bit of a mass exodus a while back due to a lack of understanding of simple rules. They didn't like it and so they left.
I also think some of us have had life kind of get in the way. I know Mario did a while back. Blake has always been busy, it seems. Rahat is all about them Tweets I've actually been wondering about Rockets Best Fan lately. Sir Thursday as well. Recently, I have had to take over my father's businesses (he has 3 of them) down in Houston. The difficulty is I have a business of my own I run in Austin. It's been hectic, to say the least. I'm currently splitting time 50/50 between Houston and Austin and trying to cram a week's worth of work into each city. This will continue for the next 4-6 months...hopefully I can get it all under control by then.
I can chime in here and there, but I doubt I can make any of my way-too-long posts full of stats and stuff any time soon. I think lots of people may be glad about that.
I'm all for giving it a shot. Maybe we can resurrect this place. I think part of the problem is that the team is doing so well. What is there to discuss, really? "Yay, we're doing great!" "Agreed", "Agreed", "Agreed"....and so on.
Maybe somebody can go dig around the RGV website and fill us in on how Zhou Qi, Isaiah Hartenstein, and the rest are doing? I'd be interested in that.
