@  DenverRocket : (05 December 2016 - 10:24 PM) He has to pass a physical first (which seems a bit bizarre considering the team doctors know all about his back etc...): ​

@  DenverRocket : (05 December 2016 - 10:11 PM) Well we've matched it according to Woj
@  thejohnnygold : (03 December 2016 - 05:48 AM) Looking at the structure of the deal I think we match it...unless Morey is concerned about messing up team chemistry.
@  DenverRocket : (03 December 2016 - 12:44 AM) Signed. 4yrs, $37 million. We have 3 days to match.
@  DenverRocket : (01 December 2016 - 05:24 PM) D-Mo close to signing Nets offer sheet according to Woj https://t.co/AGtJj532y0
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:35 AM) D-Mo took bad advice from his agent. We shall see how it plays out. If he gets multiple deals or works things out with Houston.
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:33 AM) D-Mo still ends up having to prove himself for one yr for about slightly less than what Houston offered for one yr.
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:31 AM) probably break even financially....because t everyone loses
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:30 AM) I agree Slick Shoes. He could probably play in one European for about $2 mil for what amounts to 20 something games....and then play for another European team for about the same for about 26 games. Rockets & D-Mo
@  slick shoes : (23 November 2016 - 07:30 PM) I don't know that we would get anything in return for DMo at this point. He will have to play to prove that he can physically be out there and prove that he has actual value.
@  Jatman20 : (22 November 2016 - 02:32 PM) Nov 22: Ennis can be traded Nov 23: D-Mo deadline to be traded.....for what it's worth.
@  slick shoes : (21 November 2016 - 08:27 PM) End of tweet: "Still no progress." Dude feels burned. I don't blame him.
@  DenverRocket : (21 November 2016 - 07:58 PM) I saw yesterday (somewhere, I think Calvin Watkins) a tweet saying that Rockets have had positive discussions with D-Mo's agent.
@  slick shoes : (21 November 2016 - 05:35 PM) Wiltjer is back from D-League!
@  DenverRocket : (17 November 2016 - 04:16 PM) Good interview with Thabeet for those interested: http://theundefeated...-to-the-league/
@  slick shoes : (09 November 2016 - 07:01 PM) "We have to commit to defense," said Jeff Bzdelik, the assistant coach charged with guiding Houston on that end, "or we're just a .500 team that runs up and down a lot." Hey, someone gets it!
@  thejohnnygold : (09 November 2016 - 05:53 PM) Zach Lowe has a solid article detailing the good and the bad for Houston. LINK
@  slick shoes : (05 November 2016 - 01:18 PM) Well,Ii don't feel so bad about the Rockets not being able to beat the Lakers on opening night now.
@  thejohnnygold : (04 November 2016 - 08:46 PM) thirded
@  majik19 : (04 November 2016 - 06:06 PM) I second slick shoes - please accept!

In a move that could lead to the unraveling of the Lakeshow or maybe vault them into Western Conference supremacy, the Buss family will choose a coach this week.

if phil comes back he will vault them to champions. this is what real coaches are made of. while I don't like phil I can't argue with his resume. the man has had sucess with every team he has coached. it will probably take a wheel barrel full of money to get him out of retirement, but may be well worth it. the lakers only have about a 3 year window to win a championship with the present cast so why not max out your chances.

Oh please please choose D'antoni. PLEASE!! or Stan Van Gundy. If we have to hear about the Lakers all the time at least it would be dramatic with those two. No defense and a ton of hasty threes from average three point shooters. Or the fun of waiting of watching SVG and Howard stare hatefully at each other all game.

But realistically Phil comes back and coaches west coast games. And even though he's part time he gets 10 mil for the season. These are my psychic predictions, Lord ah Mercy.

He will come back, and they will likely win a ring in the next 3 years(agree with RBF that that's their window, for now). From reports I've heard Phil has expressed that he would "love" to coach DH.

There is no better coach for your team when you have superstars.

I think he comes back too. I wonder how many away games he coaches in person. I wonder if they get another assistant coach that is qualified to be a head coach that does the away games that are not on the west coast. Lots of questions.

ESPN is reporting that they're getting D'Antoni. This is sure to be entertaining! The Lakers will have a terrible defence and all of those old guys will be tired out from running by midseason. But they're going to score, and score a lot, I expect.

Right Sir Thursday and if there are any problems Lakers fans will surely be chanting for Phil Jackson. Looks like Jim Buss does not have the stomach to deal with Phil Jackson this year. Strange turn of events considering Jackson's agent was headed to Los Angeles today to meet with the Lakers' front office.
