    Kobe's finished. You have to move on from old busted talent.

    It's going to be funny when the Lakers miss out on Lebron and Melo. I wonder how many years it's going to take for people to realize that Jim Buss is not Jerry. Edit: Here's a good article on how the Rockets transformed their roster Post Yao to today without top 5 picks like a certain team that is close to us.

    You can hear the announcers, not a dirty play.

    Please, the Beverly play was dirty. It was Busch league no matter what the outcome. But what makes it bad is the fact that it tore a superstar player's meniscus and it was totally unnecessary. Which is a big reason it's not usually done. Beverly had been playing dirty the whole series, this was just the most visible and unfortunate example of it.The Arenas rule Morey exploited to sign Lin and Asik is a poison pill technique. It's an curiously problematic rule and Morey pissed off the Knicks and Bulls by doing it. The problem is that Morey got to average the cap hit out over the course of the contract instead of having it match the salary. So he's got an 8 million annual cap hit, where as the Knicks and Bulls could not have averaged the money and would have had to go 5, 5, 15. That third year made it ridiculous to match the offer. Morey made enemies doing it. And yes, the signed away LA's disgruntled FA and left that franchise a heaping ruin in the process. It's something LA themselves did for a long, long time. Karma coming due for LA, but that doesn't mean Houston themselves isn't building up some ill will and bad karma. Lin crosses half court to call time, Westbrook does the same thing Beverly does: But Lin isn't a superstar so it's cool right? If there is an outrage on poison pill contracts than the owners will sew that up, not Morey's fault for taking advantage, just like when we structured a weird contract around Chad Morton back in the day. New York and Chicago could have kept their guys then flipped them before the last year, they chose not to. All us fans need to care about is the 8/8/8 deal, ownership can worry about the 5/5/15. Every team has this bad karma you speak of but really happens? Championships or atleast Finals appearances. After 15 years of only hitting the second round once, I'll roll the dice.

    Bad karma are you kidding? The Westbrook play was unfortunate and a play Westbrook attempted during the year. So if you want to talk karma look at it that way. Poison pills? Bulls and New York could have matched but they have massive inflated contracts elsewhere so they chose not to match. Thier loss, not mine. And how did they steal a disgruntled player? Harden? Harden was shopped. Dwight? Dwight never wanted to go to LA in the first place. It's funny how you say Miami and the Lakers have bad karma, yet have won multiple championships. Maybe all this bad karma you speak of will help the Rockets win their third.

    Steelers have PSL's. A much bigger rip off than a $3 fee.
