Fans were getting pissed at all the movement, but now its finally paying off and there will be much more stability in the roster. Chemistry is important in basketball too. No doubt the Rockets are much more forward thinking than the Texans. The Astros are too.
I dont understand why fans get upset when players get traded. Moving all of those players over that 3 yr span set the Rockets up to have the cap room to sign 2 top 10 players and after making a trade have room to add a 3rd Aldridge/Love type player.
Those kinds of moves are the kinds of moves that teams with forward thinking GM's make. Morey makes Smith look like a kindergartener when it comes to being a GM. Of couse Morey is a MIT graduate. Did Rick graduate from Purdue?
