It's hilarious that some people think Ariza may have made a blunder by going with the Rockets. However, Ariza has a better chance to assume a a more significant role with the Rockets than if he remains with the Lakers. The Lakers have some great players, but all of them, Artest, or anyone else that may come along, will play second fiddle. That's just the way it is as long as Kobe's the team's star. Trevor Ariza has enormous potential and besides they, the Nuggets, Cavaliers, the Magic, and others have a greater chance to win at all next year over the Lakers.
