Wait, did we just send the cavalry to the D-League?

As I was watching the game last night with my girlfriend, we both got pretty disappointed.  She was sad because the Rockets lost their 3rd straight at home and me because we lost a tough game against a team that looked like it was out of Tim Donaghy's book (did you see HOW MANY TIMES Denver went to the foul line?)

I've always loved Yao Ming, and next year Yao will solve a number of problems for this team.
1.) a guy to go to when the offense is starting to stall
2.) a defensive anchor who made Brooks, Scola, Landry and Co. that much better...not to mention he'll elevate Ariza next season as well I'm sure
3.) create easier offense for Brooks, Landry, Scola and Ariza next season, the 4 guys who've had to carry the offense this season

Yeah, we could use a #2 (well #1 option) this season, but for now, since Morey wants to just cash in his best chip (that would be T-Mac's carcass that I commonly refer to), I feel its time for the team to give more minutes to Jermaine Taylor who I believe is just the spark this team nee-

Oh, wait a minutes, we just sent him down to the D-League.

If you're not going to make that major shake-up trade, then why not let your other 2nd round draft pick, someone who you say has mad offensive skills, have a shot.  Forget the deals out there.  We're NOT getting Amare Stodamire as long as this teams defensive culture exists.  There's no way we are going to get Chris Paul either (since New Orleans would NEVER trade him to a division rival).  Andre Igoudala and Samuel Dalembert for McGrady sounds like a managable trade, but I feel we'd have to lose someone like Lowry or Budinger to make the move work.  Caron Butler and Kevin Martin are not bad players, but they're sorta on the injury prone side.  Chris Bosh and Joe Johnson are definite longshots and ANYONE who mentions a deal with the Bulls for John Salmons or any of the junk that is on that roster (Derrick Rose and MAYBE Joakim Noah are exceptions), well...just forget it.

Why not just let Taylor pick up some minutes.  Battier's struggling, Ariza's struggling and Budinger hasn't been lighting it up lately.  Give Jermaine a chance to show us what he can do on a night-to-night basis.
