Terrible trade, I hope the trade doesnt get finalized like this

I had hopes for Gay, I was really excited when Foye went to Boston. I was really wishing that Foye would go to Minny though, in hopes that Roy would fall to us. If we had got him then im certain we wouldnt make a trade


Battier isnt going to be bad to have, its just that we gave way too much up for him.

The trade is still not official yet, Can't be until mid-July.

So Gay is still a Rocket, for now.

Guys sorry trade is preety much done battier has a contract issue right now but after 12th he is a rocket.Why is everybody looking at the down side of this deal.Battier is awesome not an all star but he is an all star role player,Probably an olympian also.He is a grat filler not a ball hog at all does everything your team is gonna need play point to center.He is unselfish great from three and defense is great always makes smart play better then any person in draft right now.The trade was done way befor the draft the rockets said as long as one of there five guys was still there at eight they would not trade pick.They did not want gay for he was to inexpierenced.They said in three years he could be great but they needed immediate help at the three to free up t-mac.The grizz need a boost in terms of attendance and flare rudy will hopefully provide that.We needed more prospects with star potential.The rockets want to fight for championship in the next couple of years.You guys are mad now but once battier is there and making awesome plays and giving credit to the fans for wins you will love hm.He will be missed.

Battier is good, and we could use him, but he is definantly not worth what we are giving up for him. We are giving up a potentail all-star and getting rid of depth, which we need. We should have at least got their first round pick out of this trade

You guys are not even giving battier a chance.He is better then gay right now but gay has supposedly a much larger upside.But so did batter when he came so did jameer nelson.Battier just didnt bloom like he should have gay may or may not be great.In five years if gay is a bust you guys will be like whew dodged that one.I guarantee you guys will win at least eight more games next year and make playoffs.

The problem is not giving up Rudy Gay and getting Shane Battier. The problem is giving up Rudy Gay along with Stromile Swift for just Shane Battier.

I would have loved Shane and #24 for Rudy. Or Shane and Mike Miller for Rudy, Stro, and Sura's contract.

But we lose two rotation players for a high role player. Not good. We have only one MLE, guys.

I understand everone is pisseed.Whats weird is that most memphis fans feel the exact same way.When it was just gay for battier the fans here thought we got robbed.The fact is that no one is happy.But once the dust settles it will be all good.

Good deal for both teams, it just leaves us very thin and we could have gotten more.

Memphis is a better place for Rudy to grow. He'll have more opportunities to shine there.

Shane is more suited for our system as well.

Default some good offseason moves

I think we should take Mike James back, i am really pissed that we traded Rudy Gay to the grizzlies for Shane Battier, but then when i heard we also gave them Swift i was really anoyed. I think we should try to get a rookie that didnt get drafted like darius Washington Jr., or Mike Gansey. I think we should trade Juwan Howard for anyone young that can play, maybe to memphis for Hakim Warrick. This would be a good starting linup next year.....

PG- Bob Sura/ Rafer Alston/ Darius Wahington
SG- Miek James/ Luther Head
SF- Tracy McGrady/Steve Novak
PF- Shane Battier/Hakim Warrick
C- Yao Ming/Mutumbo

For a fanatic you seem a little bit out of touch with what exactly is going on with this team and its players. Let me explain...

- Battier is not a PF. He can play there in SHORT stretches against a select FEW of the league's PF's. No way in hell is he starting.

- Memphis won't take Juwan Howard for Hakim Warrick. First of all, if Jerry West wanted Juwan, he would have taken him and not Stromile. Secondly, the contracts don't match up.

- Mike James and Luther Head would be the smallest (and still one of the worst) SG rotations in the league. No way in hell we win with that.

- There is an overwhelming possibility that Bob Sura is done...like, never step foot on the court again kind of DONE. They had a workout scheduled for him recently to see where he was health-wise, and it was cancelled because he couldn't even participate in it. IF he plays, he's not starting. Period.

- If we go with Mutombo as the ONLY backup at center, we are guaranteeing a second round exit at BEST. Not a chance in hell you get through the season and playoffs with depth that's thinner than those little sheets of paper they put in graduation and wedding invitations.
