This. Lebron, Harden, Lin and Asik? They'll win 9 championships in a row. Bill Russell better watch out.

Lin is very unproven and players with that few games don't get a contract like his, he got it due being asian and very marketable, not because of actual skills. If it was based on skills he'd get a contract like Sessions got after beasting late season for Bucks.
Really look at the players in his market range. Mo Williams, Mike Conely and etc, etc... He is out performing them all. His field goal percentage can improve, but i'm more then happy with his playmaking and he will get better.

First of all, Mo Williams and Mike Conley are better than Jeremy Lin and Mike Conley even gets less money this year than Lin. And both are proven players, Jeremy is not.

Jeremy is not a bad player but he doesn't deserve his contract and the Rockets were stupid when they let Dragic go.

I thought Lowry wanted to leave the Rockets?

Dragic wanted 4 years player option and Morey would never give him that, and all these are done b4 he offered Lin.

and according to market value, Lin is playing at his salary standard 3 games in.
He is about 8mil/year.

Haters gonna hate.

He did. That's the thing that EVERYBODY seems to ignore. Dragic wanted a player option and we never give those. EVERYBODY seems to ignore that as well. All that was in the works even before Lin was offered a contract. We did not let those two players go for Jeremy Lin

I have no beef with Lowry leaving, without the Toronto pick the Rockets wouldn't have gotten Harden.

I am well aware of the player option bogus but it's pure stupidity.
And yes, they did let Dragic go and Lowry as well and you're forgetting to mention that the used tried to save up for a possible Dwight trade.

All of which I'm cool with. The player option thing is what it is. Some organizations are ok with it, some are not. I'm ok with them trying to go after Dwight as hard as they did. Gut the team lol. I wouldn't care less. He's my favorite player though lol.

Rockets get amare
Pistons get Aldrich and m Morris or Patterson
Knicks get Motiejunas, Villenueva, and a daye

Solid post.

The Rockets need a scoring PF next to Asik. I'm really liking the way Marcus Morris is playing so far this season, and I like Motiejunas' potential, but they're going to have to give up someone. I'd prefer the Rockets held onto Royce White of all their young players.

I don't know, dude.
Royce really doesn't seem like the right one to pick in between him, Motiejunas and Jones. Roye's scoring skills is not that good, that will make the whole "point forward" thingy a non-working plan because a guy who's not a threat scoring wise is not going to be able to play like that.

Motiejunas and Jones have great potential, I really hope they'll get playing time soon and I'm happy as well to see Morris playing good basketball. Although I must say, Morris is not the PF soluting, the guy rarely bangs inside and that's what the Rockets need, a big guy who bangs in the post while scoring.

I don't think Royce lacks the ability to score. He's the smartest of the 3, the best passer, and has the best feel for the game.

BTW, aren't you supposed to be.....like.....gone from here?

Jeff asked me to come back, I did it for him.

And no, Royce really doesn't have the ability to score like D-Mo or Jones. He's a little undersized and nothing I have seen for him has convinced me that he can score on this level.
