Bad decision by Bosh though, could've done great things in Houston.

Now Houston has a HUGE problem....they traded Lin and Asik thinking that Bosh would sign with them, now they're left with neither.

Beverly/harden/Howard, possibly Parsons back if we match, but basically the team downgraded by trading Lin and Asik. Hopefully Morey had a plan B, but it looks like this blew up in Moreys face

No Bosh has grown to love it in Miami. With Lebron gone, Bosh is no longer being asked to take a backseat. In the Big 3 era, Lebron was #1, Wade #2, Bosh #3. Moving forward, a Wade/Bosh duo will be Wade 1a, Bosh 1b. It will be those 2 guys and then everybody else. He already loves being in Miami, now he won't have to take a backseat anymore. Miami offered so much to make sure he can't say no because Houston would have been a great situation for Bosh too.

FlashBolt
07-11-2014, 05:54 PM
Still don't think he's enough. Hopefully he shows the world he can do much more - which I do expect. If I'm Wade, I'll be looking to get revenge on LeBron and take less/come back with a rejuvenated game. Wade should take $13 million so Miami can sign Deng or Melo.

Well, assuming Wade gets a big deal, I am assuming Miami has close to 17-18 mill in cap, as LeBron was slotted to get the max deal with Miami.

Lets see however

I'll 3 month avy bet anyone here right now that Miami is still a 3 seed or better next year and has a great shot at ECF. In fact.. I think it will be Heat vs Cavs which would be juicy! I think Heat have nearly 20 mill in cap after maxing Bosh and soon Wade. Can add something like Deng/Ariza and another good player to go with McRoberts.

?Right?

True bro

The Rockets have 2 days to sign any quality UFA remaining with their max cap space, and then re-sign Parsons?

If the Rockets have 20 million or so, the homer in me speaking says you guys should make a big offer to Gasol. Rather than the slated MLE being offered by OKC and San Antonio, offer 9 mill+.

Dwight/Gasol is still damn good. Then look for some high quality depth players, Jordan Hill, Luol Deng etc etc

Basically use that 20 mill ASAP lol

He came to Miami to compete because he never had anything around him in Toronto, and over the 4 years he has grown to absolutely love Miami. Bosh and Wade will probably both retire in Miami.

I can see them offering Bledsoe major money, but since Houston's cap space will be gone as soon as they have to match Parsons, Phoenix can just wait them out and Houston's offer will be invalid due to lack of cap space. Only way it happens is if Phoenix agrees to a S&T.

Added to whatever contract they give Wade.

But, get that money, Bosh. Houston could've been such a great team.

If everything goes according to plan (Houston signs Bosh, resigns Parsons, and trades Lin), this is what the Rockets' starting lineup will look like:

PG - Eurocup MVP, 1x NBA All-Defensive Second
SG - 2◊ NBA All-Star, 1x All-NBA First Team, 1x All-NBA Third Team, NBA Sixth Man of the Year
SF - Best Looking Guy in the NBA, Justin Timberlake Look-Alike
PF - 2◊ NBA champion, 9◊ NBA All-Star, 1x All-NBA Second
C - 8◊ NBA All-Star, 5◊ All-NBA First Team, 1x All-NBA Second Team, 2◊ All-NBA Third Team, 3◊ NBA Defensive Player of the Year, 4◊ NBA All-Defensive First Team, 1x NBA All-Defensive Second Team, 5◊ NBA rebounding leader, 2◊ NBA blocks leader

Try being a Bulls fan and getting your hopes up to acquire players like Gasol, Wade, Bosh and now Melo only to feel that giant letdown with no Plan B. Welcome to the new age NBA. At least you guys were able to persuade Harden and Howard to sign long-term with you guys. Basically the Bulls have to draft their superstars because they aren't getting any to sign here.

That would be the Rockets best move. Asik is a great asset because he's still very coveted around the league. They could use him to acquire more talent. If the match Parsons they're still in good shape.

Exactly what I was about to say. Pretty sure Riley will already have contacted Melo.

Not that I don't think it's well past time Riley got his comeuppance, but props to Bosh for living up to his decision in 2010 and not hanging Wade out to dry. He's being well paid of course, but still.

Played is an understatement .......they had their hearts ripped out and then showed to them while they bled to death. I thought that was as good as done once Bron went back to Cleveland. Figures Miami couldn't be totally left with their dicks in the wind. They at least salvaged a little bit of dignity by resigning Bosh and I'm sure giving Wade another deal.

Rockets still got max cap space right?

Greg Monroe/Lance Stephenson/Eric Bledsoe/Isiah Thomas??

Ya'll got tons of money to spend still.. can possibly get much better depth as well.
They only have that money if they go ahead and trade Asik, and only until they match Chandler Parsons' offer sheet (which is due tomorrow, I believe).

sounds like a train wreck.

if Lebron couldn't win with Wade and Bosh. you think Melo thinks he could?

Well they did win together. 2-4 remember?

And with the Heat no longer having the "let Lebron do whatever he wants" offense, maybe they will actually have a real offense this time and now Spo will be tested as a coach and see if he can cook up a good defense.

The good thing about Melo is that he is a better player when he plays off-ball. Case and point, his time with team USA. He might actually have better chemistry with Wade and Bosh than Lebron did. But who knows, first we have to see if it actually happens lol.

Yup, that's why he sacrificed a max deal these last 4 years.

I am not going to get into this. Lebron and Wade (during his prime) are a tier above. They sacrificed money for Bosh.

I still think his best option was the Rockets.. guess not.

Lol... are you kidding there was half a dozen teams offering Bosh max and guess what 4 years later teams still are. They all gave up money to get extra talent to get some easy ships don't kid yourself.

No Bosh has grown to love it in Miami. With Lebron gone, Bosh is no longer being asked to take a backseat. In the Big 3 era, Lebron was #1, Wade #2, Bosh #3. Moving forward, a Wade/Bosh duo will be Wade 1a, Bosh 1b. It will be those 2 guys and then everybody else. He already loves being in Miami, now he won't have to take a backseat anymore. Miami offered so much to make sure he can't say no because Houston would have been a great situation for Bosh too.

There was an interview where he complained about being the man in Toronto. Bosh doesn't like the role, which is why he came to the Heat.

Proof?

They can't. The way the Mavs structured the deal he can't be traded in the first year of the deal and there is a trade kicked In the second year that causes a huge cap hit if he's traded (or something like that).

For everyone saying the Rockets got screwed, no they didn't. Sorry Lakers fans, but the Lin trade was only going to happen if Bosh signed. The Rockets will get a first round pick(4-19) for Asik if that's where the Pelicans fall. And that's where they will fall. They still have a ton of money to spend on the likes of Bledsoe etc... to improve their team. The only way they really got screwed was by the Parsons deal, because if they want him they now have to over pay for him.

They would have to work out a sign and trade with Phoenix before signing Bledsoe. Once they sign Bledsoe the Suns would have 3 days to match. The only way Houston could do that is by not matching the deal for Parsons. If the Asik trade hasn't gone through they would still have him as a trade chip though and could possibly work out a deal to send him to Phoenix for Bledsoe (if the Suns would be willing to do that). They couldn't just sign Bledsoe though if they plan to match Parsons.

This was a HORRIBLE deal!!! I've lived in South Beach since Lebron came to town and the only thing the city agreed on is that Bosh was never worth the max. So for them to get desperate and do it again... it's just nuts. You can't beat Cleveland with Wade, Deng, Granger, and Bosh. It just will never happen. If they weren't in the East they wouldn't even be a playoff team.

What they should've done is worked out sign and trade deals with the Cavs (Lebron), Rockets (Bosh), and Chicago (Wade). Then they could take back some picks, a few young players, and a lot of one year players potentially good teams want to get rid of like Steve Nash and Stoudmire (ironically).

Well, the Heat would be much different with Melo. Defensively the'd be a problem, but Bosh would be playing inside more frequently on offense and Napier would assume a larger role.

The Bulls have 7 days after the end of the July moratorium... so that's what? Next Wednesday to amnesty Boozer? And then trade 5-6 players or Gibson before they can offer him a max? I hope you aren't holding out hope on him signing for > $20M.

Bosh to Houston was NEVER a sure thing... ever

I spent the last week hearing from every remotely competent media source in the country say Bosh would go to Houston if Lebron signed with Cleveland. If Bosh never had any interest in Houston, he could have saved the Rockets a ****ing TON of time and effort and saved Rockets fans a ton of heartache. So I apologize if I'm not super chipper after he raped Houston and Daryl Morey in the *** for the second time in four years.

And before you go and whine about losing Lebron, at least you HAD Lebron for four years. You got four Finals appearances and two rings in a 4-year stretch. And you got three titles total in the last eight years. That's as many titles as every single one of my favorite professional and collegiate teams has won combined since I started watching sports 20 years ago. Sports are easy for some. Not so much for Houstonians.

I'm starting to get over this, but I will say this much... I'm going to take pleasure in how much better Houston will be next season than Miami. The Rockets won as many games as Miami last year in a tougher conference. I would not be shocked in the slightest if Houston won 15-20 more games than the Heat last year or if the Heat struggled to reach .500. Granted, in the weak *** Eastern Conference, they'll probably still crack a top 6 seed. But they're not remotely going to be as good as Houston over the next 3-4 years barring some huge free agent acquisition in the next year or two, and I think Bosh will always second guess whether or not he made the right decision.

In a way it actually is.

Cavs are not championship ready yet, especially if they keep Wiggins instead of trading for Love. They are going to take one or two seasons to become that team, even with Lebron on it.

The young players have a lot to prove. So far Irving hasn't played a single playoff game even with a good enough roster last season to AT LEAST make the 8th seed, but blew it and got injured again. So far he's either proven to be a little injury prone or overrated as some think he already peaked in his 2nd year.

Wiggins has had mixed reactions coming into the draft if he will either be boom or bust. Chances are, he will be a good defender either way but as the first pick, we obviously expect more than that, especially from a player like Wiggins. He's going from being the best player all his life and now in the NBA, he's already at most, a third option assuming he has a good first year. I wonder how he deals with that...

The Heat, while will obviously regress from losing Lebron, might still be one of the top 4 teams in the East anyway. Considering how really bad and only getting worse it is. And now with just Wade and Bosh as the top two players, we might see a resurgence from these two. Especially from Bosh. Bosh is still a 20/10+ player and every sane fan knows that. Wade before Lebron was an MVP candidate every year, and now all of a sudden he's supposed to be a guy that's just done? While only being two years older than Bron? Give me a break.

Well see what happens, but somehow I feel like Wade and Bosh will suddenly get back to at least most of their roots before Lebron.

I'm starting to get over this, but I will say this much... I'm going to take pleasure in how much better Houston will be next season than Miami. The Rockets won as many games as Miami last year in a tougher conference. I would not be shocked in the slightest if Houston won 15-20 more games than the Heat last year or if the Heat struggled to reach .500. Granted, in the weak *** Eastern Conference, they'll probably still crack a top 6 seed. But they're not remotely going to be as good as Houston over the next 3-4 years barring some huge free agent acquisition in the next year or two, and I think Bosh will always second guess whether or not he made the right decision.

This deserves to be bolded for emphasis.

it's the EC. a team with aging wade, current bosh, and a descent supporting cast is good enough to be a top 3 team in that conference.

Cavs, Bulls, Pacers, Wizards would be ahead of them. The Heat are a first round exit. Not a wise move by either side

Hey, there are at least 5 or 6 threads of trolling the Lakers.

You have it easy! XD
There are casuall 15-year-old Lakers fans who have seen their favorite team win more titles already than I will probably see all of my favorite professional teams win COMBINED in my entire lifetime. No sir. You have it easy.


That and the Rockets have probably the two most hated players in the league. Not exactly a big surprise for fans wishing them nothing but the worst lol.
So what? Hate the players, don't hate the fans. And I have no freaking clue why people hate Harden. Dwight I get, but even that hatred is overblown. If you truly "hate" a professional athlete that has done nothing illegal or abhorrent on or off the court, then you have problems.

I'll 3 month avy bet anyone here right now that Miami is still a 3 seed or better next year and has a great shot at ECF. In fact.. I think it will be Heat vs Cavs which would be juicy! I think Heat have nearly 20 mill in cap after maxing Bosh and soon Wade. Can add something like Deng/Ariza and another good player to go with McRoberts.

I think you're grossly underestimating the LeBron factor. I'm not saying that the Heat can't somehow find a way to fill his shoes, but if Wade comes back he's still going to need someone to spell him so that they can "save him" for the playoffs. I'll wait and see how this shakes out before making any bold predictions, but let's not call them a no worse than a 3 seed right now. Even in the East.

It's to be expected. Blame it on the "super team" backlash. You can probably also blame it on the bad blood from the Harden and Dwight acquisitions. I seem to recall some Houston fans inflating the value and efficacy of both on this very forum.

If I'm a Houston fan I wouldn't worry about it. Quietly build a contender and see if you can get to the promised land.

It's certainly more likely to happen than it is that this Miami team will make the Finals. Trust me when I say that Riley and the Heat made a mistake here. If they were smart, they would have let Wade and Bosh walk, let Riley retire and go into full tank mode. Instead, the Heat will spend the next four years wallowing in mediocrity as Wade continues to decay and getting bounced in the first or second round. The only reason they'll probably make the playoffs at all is because they're in the East.

But Houston went through the same thing for years, and I hated it. All Houston fans wanted the Rockets to do was tank. They ended up getting lucky with the Harden deal and backing that up with Howard. But most teams are not that lucky and Miami has nowhere near the assets that Morey had back then.

Trust me when I say that Riley and the Heat made a mistake here. If they were smart, they would have let Wade and Bosh walk, let Riley retire and go into full tank mode.

If they let riley walk, that would be the biggest mistake they could do.

Why would I trust the new person in charge? No I trust Riley, I rather him here working behind the scenes, doing what he does. Look at his track record. I am rolling with him.

I don't care about tanking, but it has to be Riley's plan; not someone else.



Instead, the Heat will spend the next four years wallowing in mediocrity as Wade continues to decay and getting bounced in the first or second round. The only reason they'll probably make the playoffs at all is because they're in the East.

Depending on what moves Pat can pull, I can see them in the Ecf next year.

It's not about "entitled." It's about courtesy and decency. Everything everyone said about Bosh in the last week had him going to Houston if Lebron signed with Cleveland. Lebron signed with Cleveland and Bosh waits jussssst long enough for the Rockets to deal Lin AND a first round pick, THEN ****s them over for no reason by picking Miami. Imagine you're in my shoes and this was your favorite team. Imagine how ****** you would feel and then multiply it by 10, because it ACTUALLY happened to us today.

It ****ing sucks, and I wouldn't wish this **** on anybody.... except Chris Bosh. I hope he never wins another playoff series the rest of his time in the league and that Miami regrets giving him that contract.

If this is what makes you feel better and sleep at night... then believe it if you wish.

With Harden, Parsons, and Howard all making the max... that is your future. You will have no cap space for the next 4 years, minimum... just the mid-level exception and draft. Your team will likely be winning zero championships while Wade has 3 rings and Bosh as 2 already. Enjoy Darryl Morey's master plan.

I spent the last week hearing from every remotely competent media source in the country say Bosh would go to Houston if Lebron signed with Cleveland. If Bosh never had any interest in Houston, he could have saved the Rockets a ****ing TON of time and effort and saved Rockets fans a ton of heartache. So I apologize if I'm not super chipper after he raped Houston and Daryl Morey in the *** for the second time in four years.

And before you go and whine about losing Lebron, at least you HAD Lebron for four years. You got four Finals appearances and two rings in a 4-year stretch. And you got three titles total in the last eight years. That's as many titles as every single one of my favorite professional and collegiate teams has won combined since I started watching sports 20 years ago. Sports are easy for some. Not so much for Houstonians.

I agree that Bosh could have said something, but that might of showed his hand (agent talking in his ear). And I was saying for like 7 days, don't listen to the media.

How did Morey drop the ball? He did everything in his power to bring Bosh to Houston. He cleared the cap space and set up enough money to offer Bosh damn near a max deal. And he was did it all with more then enough time to be able to match Parsons' offer sheet. Oh, and then there's the fact that Houston had far more talent than Miami and was a far better fit.

You explain to me. What ball exactly did Morey drop? What did he not do that he should have don or did do that he shouldn't have?

What offer? Also, it's a completely moot point, because if they sign Parsons to a contract then they don't have any cap space to offer to Bosh or Melo or anyone else for that matter. Or are you saying that Houston should have just taken the team option and paid him $1 million for this season to let him go to UFA next year? Because that also wouldn't make a ton of sense, because then they'd be going through all of this a year from now minus the part where Houston can match any offer sheet he signs.

Morey handled Parsons exactly as he should have. And honestly it wouldn't have made any difference in the Bosh race anyway, because Bosh stayed in Miami to take a contract the Rockets could never have offered him with or without Parsons.

If they exercised the team option for Parsons, he would have been less than $1,000,000 on the books for 2014 FA, making him a RFA in 2015, where they thought his price tag would be MUCH higher than in 2014. Obviously, the plan blew up in their face as Dallas offered him the max (averages 15 a year).

They could have still targeted anyone that is willing to come to Houston THIS 2014 FA, but not in 2015 (if they wanted to resign him). The difference is, the opposite is true of what you expected in that in 2014 FA, you will have to pay Parsons an insane contract to keep him THIS season while not guaranteed to sign any major FA, and STILL not have any cap room in 2015 FA if they match Parson's contract he signed with Dallas.

In short: No cap space in 2015 if they match Parson's contract in either scenario, but they could have him locked for cheap this year, and sign a MAX player this FA (although it is becoming a moot point as no big FA wants to go to Houston). Morey did his best but failed. He doesn't deserve disrespect for his failures.

You mean unrestricted free agent in 2015... And if you do that to Parsons, who says he signs with you in 2015; I would think he would be bitter for having to play a full year for a mil.

Yes, you are correct! Sorry, I meant to say UFA.

Solid point, but it's moot now. I think he'd resign if Bosh signed with Houston. It's all speculative at this point. Morey didn't screw up, he just didn't have much luck. Cuban and Parsons get the last laugh.

Is something wrong with my math, or does that add up to Bosh making almost 24 million a year on average?

He's good... but 24 milion good? That is almost half the cap on Chris Bosh? WTF?

They'd get more for their money give two guys 12 million.

But lebron held him back though. Now he's going to destroy the league if you listen to heat fans

Two words: Karma.

Okay that's only one word but my smiling *** is the other.

morey dropped the ball by jumping the gun w/o commitment from Bosh that he's going to sign.

But we have no idea what's going on behind the scenes. What if he had to? What if he was in a position where Bosh wouldn't sign unless Morey proved he could create the necessary cap space? Hell, I've heard from a couple of sources that Bosh actually gave Houston a verbal commitment before backing out to take the Heat's deal.

What the hell does that even mean? Karma for what exactly? Houston has won one playoff series in nearly 20 years and Morey has been the only decent thing this team has been able to hang his hat on. He does everything right and everyone believes he's going to get Bosh, but then the rug gets pulled out from under him. How is that karma?

I saw someone post this on twitter yesterday, but it's such a good example of how their ISN'T such a thing as karma in the league. Cleveland loses Lebron. Dan Gilbert writes an awful letter crushing James and the Cleveland front office does everything in its power to lose the next four years. Somehow they luck into three first overall picks and despite completely botching one of them and a number of other horrid front office decisions, they still have the talent to end up with Lebron. Morey on the other hand does everything right. He was able to create cap space for Bosh when many people (including dozens in this forum) suggested it was impossible. He gets Bosh within one completely logical choice away from creating the best starting five in the NBA and Bosh ends up chasing the money to stay in Miami.

There is no karma in the NBA, at least where front office decisions are concerned.
