    Was expecting a Watson of the Deshaun variety.

    At least his opinion has some professional knowledge behind it.

    That being said.. respect to Deshaun. I like him.

    Earl Watson seemed like a Rocket that never played in Houston.

    Was a desperation move after missiong out on Butler, but it could blossom into something good over time.

    Definitely helps that they are a brotherhood.

    I had no opinion on Watson before listening to this podcast with his fiance, Joy Taylor. He had some cogent thoughts on the top 5 best rappers too - There is no top 5 it's all mood. Pure facts.

    He says Westbrook is an AMAZING on ball defender. Okay, we'll see. Apparently Joy is a closet stan of the Rockets because Westbrook?

    There was not one back handed comment in this discussion of the Rockets. That's crazy from a podcast outside the Houston bubble.

    Russ was a damn good on ball defender the first half of last year. He was really locked in shutting ppl down so I know he has it in him.

    When I think of Earl Watson, I remembered him as a player. Forgot he later went on to be a coach.

    As far as comments on Harden and Westbrook. It's similar to the answer when JVG was asked. Both can make it work. James and Russ are at the right time of their careers and can make a good run at the championship.

    Westbrook wasn’t available when they were after Butler. Leonard was see what star he could get to LAC with him first remember?

    its funny how Joy Taylor suddenly decides to root for the Rockets now after bashing them year after year just because her fiance says good things about the Rockets.

    Watson is a class act individual. I hope he retires a rocket missile.
