    Will probably be a Houston Rocket next year. Nothing is official but he told all teams in the running that they were out, minus The Rockets.

    Rest my case, dirk is the one man who is a nightmare matchup for the heat.

    I'm not saying this is false but Chris Broussard is the worst NBA insider there is. Guy doesn't know a thing until after the fact most the time.

    He was. He has fallen off big time since then. Also Miami is a much better team today than back then.

    Woj is a much better insider. Honestly, Broussard could be spot on but he has a track record of a) being completely wrong and b) writing "source" next to a true supposition that he just took from someone else.

    Points in case:
    When Deron Williams resigned with the Nets he tweeted it. 30 minutes later Broussard tweets "Sources say Deron Williams to resign with the Nets"

    THen there was the time he used a printed quote by Eric Gordon as a "source".

    For the longest time he kept saying LeBron to Chicago was a done deal and even added in talk of some package with Calipari. Can't remember if this was before or after he said Wade was a lock for Chicago.

    He constantly portrays opinions as facts with sources.

    Houston isn't anywhere near good enough to beat Miami right now anyway. They need shooters and defenders in the worst way.

    But it wasn't just Nowitzki, either. Tyson Chandler eliminated the lane, Marion and Stevenson did a marvelous job on James, and Barea was an absolute spark plug offensive against a Miami team that couldn't defend the pick and roll very well. And it isn't like Miami skated through Indiana, Boston, and San Antonio without being challenged the last two seasons. All three of those series went to seven games.

    Well, he did break the James-Bosh signings first, but I don't know what else. At least it isn't Stephen Ass Smith. Every since Iverson went geriatric, Smith's only contact has been at Cheese Doodles.

    I'm excited about DH going to the Rockets with our Gator boy Chandler and comp.They are a young up and coming team with lots of talent and good chemistry, and have the potential to become good defensively to go with their offensive ability.Also having the greatest 2 bigs that have played in the league in Kevin Mc and Akeem(sp?) mentoring and teaching him is such an opportunity for him.

    Stephen A. Smith broke the news of James/Bosh a week before Broussard did. It was another case of Broussard attempting to pretend he knew what was going on.

    I just love how ESPN has Parsons featured as a member representing the Rockets.

    Yeah and in another report I heard them talk about him as a 'star' but just not a superstar (like Howard, Harden). Right now, I'll take that. He wasn't even supposed to be in the NBA coming out of HS.

    I can agree with that. I thought the league was all about personnel and matchups. I will take the Howard and nowitzki matchup any day.

    He is now 50:50 Rockets/Lakers. Apparently he has changed his mind.

    He's a rocket. Interesting to see if he can return to dominant form with that team.

    Dwight to the Rockets looks official now. Lakers made a statement that Dwight isn't resigning and Howard changed his Twitter profile to him in a Rockets jersey. I've been a quasi-Rockets fan but that will change if they have Dwight and Josh Smith.
