The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was making the world believe he didn’t exist. The greatest trade that doesn’t exist yet is the one Daryl Morey is setting the world up to see. With the addition of yet another young big man in Thomas Robinson , the rockets GM is positioning his young team to make a move that will with out a doubt send two or three of the best young big men from last years’s draft to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love.

Why waste your time signing a Josh Smith, or a Dwight Howard when you can trade for one of Kevin McHale’s power forward prodigies that he hand pick at his previous job? There is a lot of speculation about Dwight wanting to come to Houston all of a sudden but the Rockets don’t need a replacement for a healthy young Omer Asik. They definitely don’t need a super-athletic power forward with no post game and a questionable decision making skills that feels like capitalizing on a weak free agent market by asking for a max contract, I.E. Joe Johnson”.
Instead Mr. Morey will shock the world and pry Kevin Love from a city that he is not excited about being in and allow that organization to save face with it’s fans’ and build a brighter future with the likes of a Royce White, Terrence Jones, D-MO, or Thomas Robinson, combination paired with a second round pick and possibly a future first.
It has been a long time since I have heard anyone talk about Mr. Love, almost like he doesn’t exist . Lets’’s see if he is wearing a red uniform next season and giving the rest of the league hell along with the young talented core of players the rockets currently have.
