Good fkn post. MSR.

You have to take calculated risks. Look how fast the Rockets got turned around. Daryl Morey had zero loyalty to players and moved them around like chess pieces. Now they have the two best rebounding centers, a top 5 and best SG in Harden, and lots of young talent to boot.

I know Basketball is a lot different from Football in terms of Free agency and the draft, but Daryl had some serious balls when making moves.

The Texans thought they were taking small steps forward but in fact they were taking large steps back. Schaub's extension, Reed's deal, Marciano staying and Holliday gone. It's pretty pathetic.
