I’ll say this: Trevor Ariza’s going to love James Harden’s skip passes to the corner.

Arash Markazi

Watching the 2008 Lakers playoff run. (I'm bored.) Amazing that team made it to the NBA Finals without Andrew Bynum and Trevor Ariza.

But when Bosh opted instead to sign five-year max w/Miami, Houston chose to sign Trevor Ariza and keep chasing one more name for the marquee
