LaVar Ball is reportedly targeting a $200 price tag for his son Lonzo’s debut basketball sneaker. That number would put the UCLA standout’s first signature shoe ahead of the current sneaker prices for guys like James Harden, LeBron James, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant.

For starters, most of you wouldn’t pay anywhere near $200 for Ball’s kicks.

A year later, with a star in hand and the Rockets back in the playoffs, Morey convinced his second star — Dwight Howard — to join as a free agent. That worked less well. Howard and Harden didn’t mesh, and Howard wasn’t a great fit for how Morey and coach Kevin McHale wanted a Harden-led team to play. The combo and some discount role players did manage to get the Rockets to the conference finals two years ago, but it all blew up in 2015-16. Howard left. Houston basically said, “Good riddance.”

So Morey adjusted his vision: He’d hire offensive mastermind Mike D’Antoni as coach. D’Antoni would convert Harden to a full-time point guard. Morey would surround Harden with shooting. The Rockets would break their own records for three-pointer volume. The team’s defense would rely on Patrick Beverley, Clint Capela, and the discount veteran Nene. (Also, hopes and prayers.)

The Rockets had one of the most efficient offenses in NBA history. Harden Dallas Cowboys Cheap Jerseys set records for point creation and would have been a slam-dunk MVP if not for Russell Westbrook going ballistic for six straight months. Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson handled their roles beautifully. Capela, Beverley, and Nene did their jobs. D’Antoni cleared his name.
