penny-pinch?? thanks for admitting you have no clue about what your talking about. the NBA is a stars league, moreys money manipulation skills and ability to find value in low paid players would do wonders in the nfl.. moreys great at building teams that contribute around its stars. he just hasnt been able to find willing superstars to surround those guys with, not to mention that UNTIL NOW he simply hasnt had the cap space to actively pursue stars. he inherited 40 million dollars of cap space tied to ailing players tmac & yao and only recently has escaped the burden those contracts put on the franchise... morey has yet to have a losing season, and the rockets 3 straight lotto years, managed to stay above 500 without even a single all-star on the roster, posting records that would have them seeded 5-8 in the eastern conference

the guy consistently wins trades and is earning a reputation around he league as a guy you might not want to deal with. BUT, the way the man manipulates his deals and sets up his team with assets, other teams have no choice but to deal with him as he collects what other teams need, whether it be draft picks, expiring contracts, solid role players on rookie contracts. he makes moves and you only see what the deal is at face value, morey is making deals to set up other deals. the reason he was able to pull off the blockbuster deal for james harden was because of the combination of cap space and assets he compiled up years before.

the rockets are in a position to offer a max contract in free agency and can clear more space after moving lin or asik..

Wake me up when his moves actually lead to us winning a playoff series.
ummmm.. 2009 ring a bell.. not to mention pushing the eventual champs to game 7 with no center and ron artest was basically our best player.

the rockets curently have the lowest pay roll in the NBA($51,917,204), the youngest team in the league, and despite that have a shot at grabbing the 6 seed in the stacked west..
