    Everyone on twitter saying he gives a look to Stephen Jackson. It looked more to me, that he didn’t wanna speak about James

    Can someone explain to me Austin Rivers look? It doesn’t seem to me that it’s a death stare

    I’d like a list of current nba players that have publicly called out Harden for his performances without being passive or being coy about it. I’m assuming this list will also be very short.

    The thing is he didn’t defend James or anything he just avoided the statement because he would mind being back with Houston

    Austin didn't put any Rockets player under the bus. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Why can’t someone who goes on these shows from our team remind everyone that the only team it hasn’t proven to work against so far is GS? Also point out the simple fact that they don’t isolate Harden every. single. play.

    As far as Rivers reactions to the questions. Seemed at first he was jumping to defend him and said he does what he’s asked to do, but I think he realized quick as the questions continued that everyone there around him was not going to let him say he thinks the style can work without making a big deal about it. Decided to just keep quiet.

    He did give a little smirk when they mentioned guys being “cold” just standing there waiting for the ball to shoot. Though I’d say the numbers would disagree with that notion. Our guys shoot very well on our wide open and open attempts that they are spoon fed.

    Rivers ready to ride the Warriors bandwagon next year meanwhile Stephen Jackson continues to hate on the Rockets, D'antoni, Morey, and Harden.

    What else is new? :rolleyes:

    When he was incredible he said it. Thats why he has high standards for him. Then he saw how he shrinks under pressure

    That’s the problem. I don’t blame Austin, he played his heart out

    thats the "you right, i agree, im pissed about it, but i dont want anyone to notice" look. you see it alot in peeps who gotta do all the work in team projects and the lazy one still got an A.

    im sure its frustrating af for rivers. he worked his a$$ off then had to watch that big opportunity go down the drain bc of other people.

    Why is it that everything, any rockets player does, is translated by this board as "you can tell he didnt want to say or do X, to avoid talking about James."

    It's a ridiculous idea.

    I have no problem with what he said in the clip. He is our most important free agent.
