@  blakecouey : (13 July 2014 - 03:48 AM) From what I saw, Parsons has a 15% trade kicker, which makes it that much harder to trade. Might not be immovable but doesn't help.
@  majik19 : (13 July 2014 - 01:58 AM) if nothing else, Parsons' salary would match up nicely for a star level player (a la Love). I think both Ariza and Parsons would have tradeable contracts
@  Matt Maloney... : (12 July 2014 - 11:01 PM) When the BULLS amnesty Boozer on Weds, do the Rockets have any cap space left?
@  miketheodio : (12 July 2014 - 10:59 PM) I could see ariza as a trade asset with that contract. Wouldn't be surprised if Parsons is matched.
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 10:43 PM) That motorboating was hilarious! Maybe we can be an above average defensive team with Ariza starting at SF.
@  thejohnnygold : (12 July 2014 - 10:31 PM) I think this means no Parsons. I can live with this.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 10:14 PM) It's going to be okay Rahat...
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 09:54 PM) Ariza and Harden are friends supposedly. Y'all remember the motorboating after Harden hit that game winner at the buzzer?
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:52 PM) Finally, a big wing who can play some D.
@  thenit : (12 July 2014 - 09:50 PM) Yay we got ariza
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) I hope we don't match Parsons. Who is he going to guard?
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) Yea I don't know which way we go. Do you really want $23 mil per yr in two SFs?
@  Yao-Lin Temple : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) Declining scale. $8.6M, $8.2M, $7.8M, $7.4M.
@  RudyT1995 : (12 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) I love Ariza, but only if he can stay healthy. He's had some issues there.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 09:37 PM) Or as the chatter goes, get Parsons back and play lots of small ball, poor Dwight.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 July 2014 - 09:33 PM) Okay, so Parsons isn't back and how much does that leave to get anyone else besides bringing last years guys back.
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 09:32 PM) At least it is cheaper than I thought, but I didn't really want him on a 4 year contract.
@  txtdo1411 : (12 July 2014 - 09:29 PM) Agreed to a 4 year $32mil contract with Ariza according to Amick
@  thejohnnygold : (12 July 2014 - 09:12 PM) scratch that. Looks like Morey is trying to get Ariza
@  thejohnnygold : (12 July 2014 - 09:09 PM) If Morey can squeeze Mike Dunleavy out of Chicago I think Parsons might be gone.

Looking forward to this one. One thing I am consistently surprised about is the hostility and negativity that players in New York have shown towards Lin. I have never seen so many soundbites saying things that approximate to "we're better off without him" as I did after he landed in Houston. It wasn't just his ex-teammates either - I'm sure I saw something from Deron Williams too. I don't get the sense that Lin is a particularly vengeful person, but if anything is going to light a fire under him to perform you would hope that it's playing against the guys who've basically been throwing him under a bus in the media for the past month.

This should be a fun game. The outcome may come from the "game within the game" though, how we try to control Melo. Seems to me that Chander and Asik will negate each other nicely. If we show Melo some blocks back into his face (probably via Terrence or Smith) in addition to Asik protecting the rim, he may rely on his jump shooting or become a passer. At that point, anything might happen. That is the fun of it. I doubt that Lin is really the story in the overall outcome. That being said, Harden and Parsons had better hit their shots for us to pull out a win...

I have a feeling Jeremy is going to play awful. Way too much pressure. Hope I'm wrong.

The Rockets are about in the same situation as the last three years. To good to tank, and not good enough to vie for a decent playoff spot. Actually I don't think they are competing for a playoff spot at all.

Having said that, the Rockets are in a completely different situation from a youth standpoint. Youngest team etc. So I am ambivalent about winning the games. Every game lost boosts them up in the lottery. Every game won increases their confidence.

So I do not hang on every game. I enjoy them, win or lose, paying close attention to player development.
