Default Rocket fans: Do you want Artest?

I'm very apprehensive.

Only if he will behave here in Houston. If he behaves like Bonzi Wells did last season, then that'll be alright, but if he runrs into a trouble maker, hell nawl.

The Rockets don't need Artest because they have Battier. If they didn't have Battier I'd be all for it. But as of now, what's the point? Battier to PF? I still don't like that.

I kinda need you to..........answer. You didn't answer.

Yes, no, or "I don't know right now" would do. I think everyone would answer "If he behaves, yes. If he doesn't, no". So we're throwing that out because that would go without saying.

Rocket fans only (per thread title).

Input not needed. And you reasoning sucks.

Rockets are the only team I root for out of the West. True, I'm only truly a Magic fan, but whatever...

My reasoning sucks? What are they going to do? Have Battier or Artest come off the bench? Waste. They need Mike James... who they got. Now they need a better PF. Not Artest.

Battier is fine off the bench with Bonzi. What better 2/3 bench duo would there be?

Yes, we need a power forward. Who says if we trade for Artest that we won't get one? You can't address all your needs in every move you make.

This is why your reasoning absolutely sucks.

And no one with the handle "Orlando Magic" can call themselves a Rocket fan.

Be gone. Shew.

Let me break it down for you simpleton. Artest is not a better compliment to the Rockets than Battier is, and he should not start over Battier. Battier is a better shooter and nearly the same defender. What does Ron do better? Post scoring. Do they need that out of their SF? No. They have a go to swingman and a go to center.

He is simply not worth the risk to the attitude of the team simply because he is not an upgrade from Battier for the Rockets.

Get him now. He might be a head case, but he's better than 95% of SF and he plays defense.

Worth the risk?

What risk? Word is we give up Snyder, #26, and Bob Sura. That's it. There is no fu*king risk.

And no, Battier is not a better defender than Artest. They are both great, but they are different defenders stylistically. Artest is a lockdown defender and Battier isn't.
