There was a time where Morey seemed to make tons of smart moves.
But lots of questionable decisions the past year or two.

Letting Ariza go.
Adding Melo.
A max contract for an aging, injury-prone Chris Paul.

Danuel House Jr. has been playing terrific, starting the past dozen games, as a 2-way GLeaguer.  His NBA time was up, so Morey cheaped out offering him first a 3 year non-guaranteed minimum deal, then making it guaranteed.  So House balked, Is back in GLeague and will be an RFA.  House was playing well, making some key plays on both ends.  Maybe they'll pay up, but it's really become the harden all-alone show.

I was thinking about how it would suck to HOU's 3rd or 4th option because Harden dominates, but so does Paul.  But smartly they've added specialists like Caplea, a rim-running dunker, and corner-3 PJ Tuck.  Gordon gets to spot up for 3's and be more creative when the stars sit.  But HOU really misses Montrezl, Ariza, Luc.  Hard working defenders, and energy role players.

AuRevoir has been a help since Gordon and CP3 are gimpy.
He was Awful Rivers in WASh this season.
And continues to shoot 54% FT.
HOU could use defensive help.


Look at who'd been on the Rockettes roster this year:

Bums:
Melo
Zhou Qi
MCW
Marquise Chriss

Gimps:
Brandon Knight
Nene Hilario

D-Leaguered:
Danuel House
Gary Clark
James Nunnally (being added to replace House)

Erratics:
Gerald Green
Au Rivers

A weird assortment of players.


So is Melo's career over?

James Nunnaly is reportedly on the way to HOU

Melo should finish his career in Brooklyn.

Melo is trying to decide if he actually misses basketball at all.

Both Rivers are better off now Austin is off the Clippers.

Enes' piece in the Washington Post.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/enes-kanter-anyone-who-speaks-out-against-erdogan-is-a-target-that-includes-me/2019/01/15/dea79a90-1846-11e9-88fe-f9f77a3bcb6c_story.html?utm_term=.5733b8f4bac5

Turkey puts out an Interpol red arrest notice:https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwikqoSsovPfAhV9ThUIHTD8AvUQ0PADMAF6BAgAEAU&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.espn.com%2Fnba%2Fstory%2F_%2Fid%2F25776360%2Fturkey-seeking-warrant-enes-kanter-new-york-knicks&usg=AOvVaw1dhTKIS8UkI8NymWhBmCWn


Nothing you didn't know..about Enes' situation..about the situation in Turkey, about Erdogan, but a good reminder  whatever you think of his game or his place on the Knicks, of the situation he's been playing under and what an insipid babbling little piece of shit Kam is;)

That's what Kanter needed to do.  Publicize Erdogan's dictatorship and crimes.  I wish he also mentioned how many newspapers and tv stations have been closed.  And the number of reporters jailed in Turkey (most in the world?).  And maybe a little about the high level of corruption Erdogan presides over.  I'm glad he highlighted the abductions in Kosovo, which made a lot of Turks in exile in Bosnia and other Balkan countries rather nervous.
Good job by Kanter using his platform and risking his safety for what is right.  Not easy standing up to a dictator.

Crazy-ass Nets game.
I tuned in with a few minutes left and thendown 6 with 28 secs left, I switched to the Raps-Celts game, which was a 1 point Raps lead with 3 mins left, and then Kyrie killed TOR from there.  Then I look and Nets took it to OT somehow.  Dinwiddie scored 25 points in the 4Q and OT.  Made crazy 3's to send it to OT and kept rolling in OT.

Towards the end Nets started ball denying Harden and double teaming him.  Nunnaly hit a big 3 late in the 4Q and again in OT.  AuRiv missed a key 3 with 6 secs left in OT that could have won it.  Rattled out. 

Nets game had a 46-37 4Q.
HOU shot an NBA record 70 3-pointers(23-70 = 33%)

Crazy game.
Big W for Nets.
Dinwiddie!
