    just because he's been at one doesn't mean he hasn't been at both.

    I’m telling y’all.... this was a GSW ploy to distract the media from themselves...

    Coincidence a bunch of San Francisco writers pushed this?

    Love to see it. There were only a few, including myself, that had a positive reaction when we picked him up.

    wow he hasn't made an episode in almost a year.. i thought he had given up on that

    glad to see that he's doing it again and I hope he releases an episode once a week this off-season to give us more insight into the team

    Letting Shump walk outright after the trade deadline tax ducking would be truly comical. There better not be any Tilman defending from anybody if that goes down.

    I await the 1000 word thinkpiece that will surely pop up to defend Tilman and explain to us why it actually makes sense. Likely defenses could be "we need to keep our picks", "nobody was available for Shump", or "repeater tax window".

    My bottom-line take, setting aside whether there was a beef and who's at fault:

    If it had been working well last year, there's no way Chris Paul wouldn't be a Rocket today.

    Why couldn't it just be that Harden felt like they had made two good runs with CP, came excruciatingly close, and it's time to roll the dice with something new?

    Occam's razor. Basketball reasons.

    (Even if it is "personal", WB sounds like one of Harden's best friends in the NBA. That their friendship is better than CP's doesn't imply that CP and Harden hate each other.)

    After seeing what a problematic franchise the Wizards are, I think he appreciates being on a contender and being fortunate enough to play alongside an MVP candidate.

    Now he got 2.

    One of the strangest things I've seen happen in Rockets fandom since I've been following the team.

    But please, don't make me like Steph Curry. There's only so much a guy can take.
