    Article here.

    Tilman admits the following:
    • He never even met Melo. Like, at all.
    • He was surprised by the decision to dump Melo.
    • The decision was made by Basketball Ops without consulting him, then they told him of their plan.
    • He doesn't really know all the facts about "how it went down" when they released Melo.
    • He wouldn't have overridden their decision regardless; they make the basketball decisions.
    • Actually thinks James Dolan is a gentleman.

    Wow, so many weasel answers from someone who thinks he's The Main Man.

    Didn't get any coaching with Melo questions, eh?

    Amount of ****s given by Tilman for Melo, like non.

    Tillman is full of ****.

    He doesn’t know what when down with Anthony... because that is basketball operations ... but he is completely involved in the MDA contract situation and balks at few million dollars in guaranteed incentives.

    Least surprising thing about this article is that he thinks Dolan is a gentleman.

    Tilman was also shocked about the Rockets dipping below the tax line.

    Why make these statements, what could you possibly gain? Tilman is an idiot.

    I got a cluck here: I believe he hasn’t met Melo before. However I’m sure he knew what was up.

    Everybody on here is responding like they wanted Melo on the team.. yeah okay sure. Self hating the Rockets does nothing for the Rockets.
