    He became a top 5 player and won MVP because of CP3 and the dummy ran him out for his boy. Now we’re stuck with WB as our best player, no future assets, playing midget ball with a shitty owner, a poor coach that bends over for Harden that likely won’t return and if I’m Morey I’m looking to dip set as well. Anybody that’s ever challenged Harden (to be better) he’s ran them out. Probably only a matter of time before WB gets sick of his **** if he isn’t already.

    Thabo needs minutes. His rebounding and defensive awareness is needed.

    Bullard has finally said something ludicrous.. thinking Caboclo could replace Capela. The motor isn't the same, not even close.

    That too, or even Tyson, but Harden needs a big man.

    This team will never win a dam thing with this harden. Russ can be Russ but harden is the most important piece. Until he plays like this it’s a wrap

    He gave up as soon as we were down by so bad in the 2nd quarter. I know you shouldn't, but it's hard when you're getting blown out by a team by the Magic.

    He's had enough, and it wouldn't surprise me if he puts in a trade in the summer. I wouldn't want to play under MDA, Morey and Tilman myself. Terrible supporting cast after terrible supporting cast. We've basically changed our whole defense and system just for Westbrook. They've wasted Harden's prime years.

    Harden has gave us 8 good years and he's done a lot for our franchise, so I would never blame or hate him for wanting out. If he puts in a trade, I have no doubt all his haters on this forum will love it. They'll celebrate it.... but then later on will soon regret ever hating Harden, because we'll go back to winning no games and never getting in the playoffs again... for like 2 decades.

    Harden has been a top 5 player in the NBA for the past 5 years, he played with CP3 two of those years.

    Again, it may be true that he has an ego, but that is on the coach. Probably the biggest mistake during Harden/Rockets era are these player coaches. We really needed a harder coach or a Phil Jackson kind of coach to get the best out of him.

    Rockets have looked like they were playing in slow motion for at least a week now.

    It will take some weeks for stubborn MDA’s mind to change.

    I don’t think what’s happening now has anything at all to do with having a “big man”...

    No second chances for the Magic with Bruno in the game. Also 2 blocks in limited minutes.

    Fair point m, but if there is no middle ground with Harden he has to go.

    we have tailored our team to him to maximize his talents, but in the process we made ourselves into a team that doesn’t allow anyone else to shine.

    how many more examples do we need?

    Nah Morey is fine... its the stupid owner and everyone else. The second Morey leaves, he will get swooped up. Tilman will proceed to hire some dumbass and further run this team to the ground. The Harden era is likely over.

    Stubborn MDA still won’t play him too much.
