Why the Rockets should stop talking

Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been on a recent media blitz trying to spin-doctor leaks to the press.

Between the chatter regarding Mike D'Antoni's failed contract talks and now rumors of a rift between Paul and Harden, the Rockets are having an ugly offseason.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank explains why the Rockets need to stop spinning and start dealing.

Justin Verlander had Tommy John surgery in 2020. But at age 39, he may have put together his best career season, leading the American League with 18 wins and a 1.75 ERA, the best mark in the AL since Pedro Martinez in 2000.

He's a lock to win the AL Cy Young Award, which would be his second in Houston. He also helped the Astros win a World Series and go to another. So where does he rank all time among Houston athletes?

Paul's rankings... 1. Hakeem Olajuwon 2. Jose Altuve 3. Justin Verlander 4. Moses Malone 5. J.J. Watt 6. Earl Campbell 7. Nolan Ryan 8. Jeff Bagwell 9. Craig Biggio 10. Andre Johnson

That's right. No James Harden. Fight me.
