    He's way too young to retire. People only know him for his dunks but he has developped a good jumper throughout the years. I can see him being a serviceable 6th man until his late thirties a la Jamal Crawford style

    I just wonder if we can keep him next year. The kid's made less than $20M over his entire career and this will probably be his last shot at signing a decent contract (he's 32 years old). Since he loves Houston so much, maybe he'd consider a small 3-year contract. I doubt other teams would want to give him anything more than a year or two at more than $2M per.

    He can't be a sixth man. He's TERRIBLE on defense. He consistently fouls people when he has no reason to, can't stay in front of anyone, doesn't make the right rotations, etc.

    He can be an end of the bench sparkplug if he will keep playing for cheap, but no GOOD team will want him as a true 6th man.

    His defense is better than Eric Gordon's has been since the all star break. The worst defender on the Rockets for months has been Eric Gordon.

    Gerald already bought a boat to sail around and help Harvey victims.

    “Maybe I am biased, I don’t know, but hell I’d die for this damn city,” he said. “I really would, man. I love this city.”



    Houston is far from a perfect city. The beach sucks, no mountains. Traffic sucks. It’s not picturesque. But that’s how I feel about Houston too.

    Living in Orange County for the past 9 years, everyone says I have it all here. But the truth is there is so much of Houston I miss every day.

    He’s worthwhile for depth but I honestly don’t see him as a rotation quality piece.

    Gerald's defense is to hit 3s and foul you so you can only make 2s. As Bull says, 3 is greater than 2.

    Look Harden does plenty on offense too, not sure why you want him to retire.
