@  thejohnnygold : (29 September 2015 - 05:16 AM) FYI, it was media day today. Interviews are up at NBA.com
@  slick shoes : (23 September 2015 - 06:37 PM) kind of late in the day but NBATV is broadcasting classis Rockets games all day today.
@  SadLakerFan : (16 September 2015 - 04:37 AM) Man, as a Laker fan, I'm learning how little you care about the off season when your team sucks. Anyway, a quick moment to remember Moses. Still remember watching the 81 team as a kid - losing record, NBA Finals. I would have cried w/joy if they could have beaten the Celtics.

@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2015 - 08:30 PM) So to celebrate his new contract, Montrezl Harrell saved someone's life on monday
@  thejohnnygold : (14 September 2015 - 04:36 PM) A good article from Blinebury talking about when Hakeem and Moses used to play in the park. LINK
@  rockets best... : (14 September 2015 - 02:29 AM) I agree totally. I got to watch his Rocket days and the man was a hell of a player. BIG MO R.I.P.
@  Mario Peña : (13 September 2015 - 05:24 PM) Sad to see Moses pass. I don't remember watching him as a Rocket but I do remember his Philly and Hawks teams. He was the perfect man to mentor Dream. It's a very sad day for his family and friends and there are many.
@  majik19 : (12 September 2015 - 09:01 PM) i just saw a post wishing Yao Ming a happy 35th birthday... am I the only one whose mind is blown that he's only 35?
@  cointurtlemoose : (08 September 2015 - 01:17 AM) aaaah, thanks jorge
@  jorgeaam : (08 September 2015 - 12:21 AM) Love it how Hinkie and Morey always target the same players, but hoping he isn't another Covington
@  thejohnnygold : (08 September 2015 - 12:03 AM) Christian Wood has signed with Philly
@  jorgeaam : (07 September 2015 - 10:32 PM) If I'm not wrong, he hasn't been waived yet, they have until october 4th to do that
@  cointurtlemoose : (07 September 2015 - 05:39 PM) Anyone else surprised that Kostas hasn't gotten picked up by anyone yet? I wanna see that guy play somewhere
@  redfaithful : (05 September 2015 - 10:48 PM) Llull line from today loss to Serbia: 30MIN 1-10PG, 0-5 3PG, 4-4FT 6AST, 1TO, 4REB, +/- -11
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:27 AM) this dude's gun fired and all he got a misdemeanor at bush lol: http://abc13.com/new...ush-iah/815795/
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:26 AM) theres more articles all over, but the jist is houston (and texas) doesn't really arrest for it, they just recommend you leave it in your car when they catch it. So seems dwight got lucky he was in texas and not cali or the NE.
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:22 AM) honestly we should just be glad they caught it...

Well it's been said from a Howard source that he will not resign with Houston if traded to us. I say it's worth the risk even if he bails since our model of being the best worst team in the NBA will NEVER win you a championship.


if we were to trade for him, then lose him, theres no guarantee we do better than pick 5th in 2014. if we can get 2 top 10 picks this year. id rather just go that route. id want more than a 10% chance howard stays here. otherwise, you're just prolonging for 2 seasons what we can do right now.

Why shouldn't Dwight re-sign with us if he gets traded here. Houston has a legacy of great big-men and kevin mchale is one of the greats. Plus we would have a good supporting cast to win.


what great pieces did cle or tor get in the lebron and bosh sign and trades?

If we get the 5th and 8th picks I say we take MKG and Drummond. those are two players that have futures in the NBA. Solid pick-ups!

    If we could somehow come away from this draft with mkg and Drummond we would have a bright future. Even one of them would be great to get. It would be unlikely though

      Both 5&8 seem less likely now than they did tuesday/wednesday. Singularly we may be able to pull one of them still though. Toronto seems intent on waiting for Nash, or drafting Lillard.

      It's getting to be that time where we hear of the next trade. Let's go Morey, get something done!

      They didn't do sign and trades cos if they had, Miami wouldn't have had the cap space for such a deal.

        They actually did trade for both LeBron and Bosh (after deciding to sign with Miami). His point was that those players wanted out, did actually do sign-and-trades and Cleveland and Toronto got virtually nothing in return.

          Oh no doubt if we can get two top 10 picks that's my first choice as well

              Reports on Twitter that the Face are shopping varejo for a lottery pick and Houston is interested. Doesn't mean much as weve been in every report for several days, but there ya go.


              Stewie is right, Lebron was signed by Miami not signed and traded for. They had to trade assets off, Beasley to Minnesota and what not to get cap space.

                That's not correct. LeBron was TRADED to Miami:

                Lebron wasn't traded to Miami. Miami I remember offered Dan Gilbert a sign and trade offer just so Lebron would earn more than any other member of the big 3 cos they felt he was that good, and Gilbert turned it down. WHY? COS HE WAS PISSED?
                Lebron and Bosh all signed as free agents. I didnt click on that link but if it says any different, its lying big time.

                Would this potential be the most disappointing draft ever if we dont get Dwight or another marquee player not named Pau?? cos the hype has made me extra curious

                  hahaha but Blake would you be disappointed if we dont get Dwight. i feel like this is the most over-hyped draft in years

                    From ESPN.com: "On July 9, 2010, the Cavaliers and Heat negotiated a sign-and-trade deal, sending James to Miami in exchange for three future draft picks and a trade exception."

                    http://espn.go.com/n...66/lebron-james

                    James was traded to the Heat. So was Bosh. Hey, you learn something new every day.

                      You got me there. Never said I was always right, just usually lol.

                      As far as DH...I'd be estatic, but at this point knowing ANYTHING as fact would be nice, the 'what if' game is getting aggravating!

                        I'm kinda surprised Sacramento turned down that Lowry deal... I don't see why on earth you'd want another rookie on that roster.

                        If we could get up there and land Kidd-Gilchrist, Robinson or Barnes, I'd be happy w/that.
                        I'd be thrilled with a Dwight Howard trade; I'd even be happy to have Pau Gasol (assuming we don't give up the farm to get him).

                        I think I'm excited with almost any result that represents a significant change in direction.
