Rockets make a move, shames for the Texans, soccer, perverts and shark lovers: The update for Feb. 22

LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 13: Louis Williams #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers looks on during the game against the Sacramento Kings on October 13, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Late yesterday the Rockets made a deal, acquiring Lou Williams from the Lakers. It was Magic Johnson’s first move as the man in charge in LA.

Williams is having the best year of his career, and might be the best player the Lakers had. He is 30 years old and will add scoring punch off the bench. To get him, the Rockets rid themselves of Corey Brewer, who was having a rough year, and a first-round pick, which will be relatively meaningless considering where the Rockets will pick.

It is a good move that improves the team. There was not a move out there that would make the Rockets competitive with the Warriors in a seven game series. But maybe they can get past the Spurs.

That, of course, is if they get that far. They have been vulnerable to teams with quality bigs, and right now their first-round matchup would be Memphis. Williams provides added scoring punch, but not much defense. Still, it is a good addition of a player who should fit what the Rockets do.

On to our three shames of the week.

Good Godsey: So how bad was former Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey at his job running an offense? The only gig he could get after being fired was as a defensive assistant with a focus on special projects. What “special projects?” Clock management being one them, which the Texans have been poor at during his tenure. Detroit obviously made a “friend”  hire here. As many have said, at least he knows how to keep an offense from scoring. It just shows what a mistake the Texans made in hiring him in the first place.

Any time is a good time for pie: (There’s another subtle Pulp Fiction reference). Well, it is unless you do it at a soccer match where there is a prop bet on whether or not you do it.  And you tell your friends.

Sign of the times: Imagine you are a body boarder on vacation at a remote island. Then imagine you get eaten by sharks because some A hole removed the warning sign in an area noted for shark attacks. Dickweed move.

In case you missed it: Disco Biscuit will be reviewing the Oscar nominated movies…Matt Mutchler on his blog riffs off of a post written here by Lamont Mann. Lamont also weighed in on the Texans quarterback situation.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

HOTTIES OF THE DAY

6844

In honor of our soccer goof, we decided to google “hot soccer women.” The result? Enough hotties to last a lifetime. We figured today we would give you a choice of soccer hotties. I would be partial to the one on the far left if I were into such things. But I am not. And shame bell to those of you who are.
