I have now lived in Houston for the last eight years so I have been here for the whole Daryl Morey tenure. Every day I ask myself why he was allowed to bounce from Boston while Danny Ainge continues to fiddle while Rome burns. Ray Allen gone for nothing, Trades Perk for zilch, misses about 2 draft picks out of three and now is going to "stand pat" so we can lose in the second round of the playoffs. Mediocre basketball, never too bad, never too good. Thanks Danny. Meanwhile Daryl has this team loaded and moving from strength to strength.

I really like the work Morey is doing in Houston.  They're my second favorite team.  There's an absolute cliff between first and second, but anyway, they have a LOT of good young talent and play a really pleasing style to watch.

Daryl should be a lock for the executive of the year. First trade for Harden, now pu pu platter for Robinson.

After this trade, Bass + Melo + 3M cash for Cousins + Brooks doesn't sound so bad. Ha.

What is Sac thinking? A wasted pick. They barely played the kid all season.

Pick 2, Houston Rockets: James Harden, Dwight Howard, David Lee, Paul Pierce, Eric Bledsoe, Tony Allen, Markieff Morris, Steve Blake, Tim Hardaway Jr, Ian, Mahinmi, Richard Jefferson, Pablo Prigioni

a 2nd rounder for Marcus Morris? Why couldn't we get in on that?

We don't have a high 2nd rounder like Phoenix does.  Assuming this is theirs.

So who starts at PF in Houston now? Robinson who averages 15 minutes a game?


Come on, 3-way Brandon Bass deal....

I wonder whats next for Sac

That 2009-2010 Kentucky team was pretty good

I just don't understand what the Kings are doing. I... I don't even know why they would do this.

Jeff Green, Rajon Rondo, Tony Allen, Celtic Concourse, Al Jefferson, Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger are insulted by your cruel words

As a future Sonics season ticket holder, this upsets me.  You don't give up the #5 pick midway through his rookie year.

Yeah. One would think that since they're in talks, they would have a gentleman's agreement to keep the team as it is.

trust me , it wasn't clicking. It is still early no doubt but its a risk you take

Patterson and Cousins are good friends. Douglas is capable pg. I'm sure sac is not done dealing

Meh, proof is in the pudding. We can project into the future all we want, but at present Danny's record so far is better than Moreys...
