    The scenario's right now is that we lose Anderson and gain Melo. Melo is more efficient than Anderson, not by much but its more impressive when you consider melo scores more. Also Anderson sucks at defense, so we gain a better offense weapon and stay the same defensivly. Honestly if we get him it could be a train wreck but give up Andreson's dumb ass contract and gain melo is a no brainer to me. Plus having our own "Big 3" might get some other solid guys jumping with us for vet min.

    Melo needs the ball to be effective...Hideki does as well...and in some instances CP3 does.

    This is literally turning into a giant 1yr experiment, but, I like it .


    Rumor is that Portland is gonna take on Ryan Anderson, we get Melo, and NY gets some combo of Myers Leonard/Moe Harkless and some picks.

    Sadly, his inefficient scoring is his best (and perhaps only) strength. He's not a good defender. He's not a good leader (playing for the Rockets, he wouldn't need to be.) He's largely failed to demonstrate a strong will to win since leaving Syracuse, and definitely zero will to win since getting that fat contract with a no-trade clause. Why play hard if you're getting paid regardless, and you can't be traded?

    Counterpoint: Ryan Anderson is ineffective at home. So I'd rather have an inefficient Melo 41 times a year that can produce 20ppg vs an inefficient Ryan Anderson that can produce 8-10PPG 41 times a year.

    Anderson is also at best, a sub par defender.

    I didn't realize Anderson's contract was so ridiculously large.

    Yeah, 4/$52 mil or somewhere in that ballpark. We had a lot of cap room last off season and threw most of it at Gordon/Anderson.

    Bill Gates buys the team and there's your new Seattle Rockets!

    Big news. If we get a shitty owner then everything goes south ala Dolan style. Tillman fertittas name is being thrown around and wouldn't mind that.

    Rich Kinder loves going to Rockets games, but he would rather buy more oil/gas companies than invest in a sports franchise. He is super risk adverse.
