It'd be awesome, Miami facing off against all 3 Texas teams in the Finals.

Why would he bolt? They're on the verge of being contenders.

With Lilliard and Aldridge there's no reason they shouldn't be able to get in the thick of things with the right moves.

Apparently Thomas Robinson is available for practically nothing. He's got great potential too.

Here's the quote

Quote:
Rockets Shopping Thomas Robinson Aggressively

Almost immediately after the Houston Rockets were eliminated in the first round of the 2013 NBA playoffs, they made it known that they hoped to make a serious run at Dwight Howard this summer, and they’d practically give Thomas Robinson away in order to make sure they had enough cap space to offer the man a max contract.

Well, ESPN.com’s Marc Stein tweeted on Friday that Houston was revving up potential interest in Robinson ahead of Thursday’s draft, since that would appear to be their best opportunity to make some kind of deal.

According to Stein, the Rockets would ideally swap Robinson for a draft pick to be used on an international player that they could stash overseas for a year, though of the names he mentioned (Giannis Adetokunbo, Rudy Gobert, Dennis Schroeder, Sergey Karasev, and Lucas Nogueira), Schroeder at least seems pretty set on playing in the NBA this year. The rest really could use a little more seasoning and may not immediately come to the League, and for teams like Houston, that could be a blessing in disguise.

For teams looking to haul in Robinson for the low, low price of a late first-round pick, the blessing is quite a bit less disguised. He had a disappointing rookie year, but he still hasn’t really gotten his opportunity. In the right situation, he’s still much better than anyone that would be selected in the 20s of this particular draft.

Nope not in the west unless they get a big C and a bench. They matched Batum's crazy and dumb contract after the Wolves offerd him that insane offer. They will need to offer Aldridge and Lillard max deals as well. They will be handicapped for a while to come.

106 million dollars worth of star power. The Bullets matched that crazy offer by the heat.

With a couple stars there's no reason you can't compete with the best. Lillard won't get paid for 4 more years. Deep pocketed owner.
