@  thejohnnygold : (24 July 2019 - 04:30 PM) The McLemore/Bennett pick-n-roll will be unstoppable :)
@  slick shoes : (23 July 2019 - 03:04 PM) McLemore is an interesting add. Apparently we are gathering all of the first round flops of the past few years
@  Mario Peña : (12 July 2019 - 03:06 AM) WHOA.
@  slick shoes : (08 July 2019 - 09:16 PM) I would have to assume that to bring in Russ we'd have to ship out CP. I don't see it working any other way.
@  thejohnnygold : (08 July 2019 - 08:45 PM) The money makes it virtually impossible...I wouldn't worry. I have to admit I find the idea of having Paul, Harden, and Westbrook on the floor together intriguing.
@  slick shoes : (08 July 2019 - 02:51 PM) im going to go ahead and pass on any westbrook to houston deals. iso hell.
@  slick shoes : (30 June 2019 - 11:43 PM) trevor ariza has absolutely zero interest in returning to houston lol
@  slick shoes : (28 June 2019 - 08:16 PM) Id rather lose EG or Clint than PJ and ONLY if were getting Jimmy. Sounds like we have a trade partner for Clint if Jimmy isnt using us for leverage for his 5 year max offer.
@  thejohnnygold : (26 June 2019 - 11:33 PM) Do y'all think if we all tweet at Morey to NOT trade PJ he'd listen?
@  slick shoes : (21 June 2019 - 01:20 AM) ....and the new uniforms are trash.
@  thejohnnygold : (15 June 2019 - 02:05 PM) Agreed. Although, the injury narrative will probably keep them chirping.
@  slick shoes : (14 June 2019 - 02:40 PM) SO glad all of the Warriors fanboys can crawl back into their respective holes for an entire year. Good for Toronto/Canada as well.
@  thejohnnygold : (05 June 2019 - 07:33 PM) I think so.
@  slick shoes : (04 June 2019 - 07:20 PM) Dame and CJ #2 I assume?
@  thejohnnygold : (30 May 2019 - 05:42 PM) 3rd best backcourt in the NBA!!!
@  slick shoes : (29 May 2019 - 09:04 PM) im sure hed be great alongside jrue holiday and no one else. 100% iso ball all the time.
@  thejohnnygold : (29 May 2019 - 06:46 PM) Anthony Davis + the #1 pick?
@  slick shoes : (29 May 2019 - 05:39 PM) shopping the entire team including james. what is the point if you trade our best player away? what could we possibly get in return that is equal value of james harden?
@  slick shoes : (11 May 2019 - 02:07 AM) turnovers and missed free throws the theme of the game thus far. throwing away endless points.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 May 2019 - 01:35 PM) I wish we had found a way to steal that game...it was there for the taking.

First of all, thank you very much Mr. Rahat for continuing and allowing real discussion on the Rockets in your forum.

 

i have no issues with LeBron joining the Lakers. IMO just makes the "BEAT LA" chants that much louder going forward in Toyota...... 

 

I choose to discuss Capela secondly. A special player that started late playing basketball in his youth. I sincerely doubt that was his or his families choice at that time in their lives. Just the way things work out sometimes

 

Still, since Capela's only impact on offense is setting a pick then rolling to the bucket, well that is not good enough going forward IMO.

 

Capela had a number of impressive blocks fin the paint these past playoffs. That is great. However, when the opposing team is choosing to avoid the lane, what else can Capela do going forward?

 

Capela has filled an important role as a Rocket these past couple of years. I honestly do not believe for a second that should result in a max contract.

 

Carmelo?

 

Again, Carmelo?

 

Losing both Trevor and Moute is very difficult in my opinion in regards to the defensive end this upcoming season.

 

It seems Moute already saw the writing on the wall re: Carmelo and chose a better contract with a terrible team. NBA players typically only have a very, very, very short horizon in regards to significant earnings so I never blame anyone for deciding family is high, very high on their priority.

 

Still, it gives me pause. Ariza is gone. Moute could have played for less in Houston this season then proved himself gojng forward and eventually being on the right end of Bird rights after this season here in Houston being on the right end of a meaninful contract and role for 2-3 years going forward. 

 

It s what it is.

 

Carmelo, I have nothing to say right now other than I believe he would be fine ending up here in Houston and making a difference going forward. I have no doubt CP3 and Harden would be totally fine with that.

 

Then that would result in the Rockets having to be so much better going forward on Offense to make up for so many more defensive lapses going forward.

 

By the way, I totally 100% disagree with Rahat that Harden cost us a place in the NBA Finals last year. I was there, it was ugly, how many wide open 3 point shots in a row that both Harden and CP3 created for everyone else that missed the mark?
