no trade makes no sense to me
why would rockets want artest if they have battier?

?..... What?

We give up 4 players that are not in our rotation for a former defensive player of the year and perennial first team NBA defender that also averages around 20 pts 5 rebs 4 asts this year along side Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. But, we are giving up too much? Seriously? Artest is a much talented scorer, but Battier is a better defender at this point in my opinion. Not by much though even if he is.

Mike James' shooting percentage is the lowest of his career. Dikembe Mutombo has played around 3 or 4 games the entire year so far. Snyder has played about as much as Mutombo despite not being injured and Steve Francis is out for the entire year with an injury and wasn't playing very well before he was injured. Yet we are giving up too much? Come on man, that deal is a steal if it were true.
