i bet houston is stocking up on solid roll players right now and then make a hard push in 2010 for a star.

Good luck, Trev


The Lakers offered him the MLE before they went after Artest. David Lee said their offer was a slap in the face, yet he gets the same money else where out of spite. I got mad luv for Trev, so I wish him the best and even more excited we replaced him with Artest.

IMO do some sort of trade with T-macs expirer to get Amare( if he agrees to extend contract) so we dont go with a 6 foot 6 center.

Its a win-win.... Phoenix gets a superstar in T-mac ( cause they will revive him with their GOAT staff)
Rockets get a center whos not shorter than their shooting gaurd

Brooks
Ariza
Battier
Scola
Amare

Bench:
Landry
Hayes
James white
Lowry
Jermaine Taylor
Chase Budinger

MLE starts at around 5.80 and can go up around 8-10% every year, so he'd earn more every season.

Your team will have problems vs the LAKERS and their huge lineup.. The Celtics with Rasheed at center will take Shaq away from the basket...

The Cavs should have built a young athletic team around Lebron.. At this point you have the two slowest centers in the league, the worst starting pf , IF VAREJO STAYS, among all title contending teams, the shortest back court in the league as well..

A lineup of

brooks
Artest
Battier
Landry
Scola

Took the world champs to 7 games. heck we were the ony team to do that. we are gonna see a rockets team that is up in you're face for 48 minutes non stops we'll play lot of trap defene, lots of full court press defense and on offense we'll see lots of fast break opportunities. heck we play better defense without the 7-6 dinasour who probaly will never be a franchise player or even play.

The Goods...........
A decent roll player, can shoot open jump shots, slash/cuts to the basket alot, long and athletic.

The Bads............
cannot create shots offensively, below average ball handler, will only thrive with 2-3 other stars on team.

Basically when he was in NY he sucked, when he was in Orlando he sucked, came to LA and made something out of nothing. He was a perfect fit in LA but can't say the same once or IF he goes to Houston.
