Guys, is it too late for us to compete for Zion and Barrett?

    I've been so disappointed with the team this season that I feel worse than we did in 1516. What should we do?

    The competition in the West has been so fierce this season that I still think Tank is better at the present level of our condition.

    The only embarrassing thing is that we may be the first team in NBA history to pay a luxury tax.

    No we can trade Harden to the Lakers or Celtics for some young pieces and picks and reclaim our future while maybe bottoming our for Zion and Barrett. We just need to **** or get off the pot. Are we gonna compete or tank already. Waiting for Morey and Tilman to make a move is gonna **** us even more.

    Yes it is too late. Phoenix, Chicago, Cleveland and Atlanta all have a huge head start on us in terms of racking up L's and they are all on pace to hit less than 20 wins this year (we're already half way there). Plus we'd have to trade James and CP3 like right now. We aren't trading James, and even if we wanted to trade CP nobody would take him.

    We are not tanking, please stop with this **** clutchfans.

    (Also we are not the first team in NBA history to pay luxury tax. We're not even the first bad one).

    Yes. It's too late. We're going to be like the 12th pick this year.

    In other words...we are the worst place you can be as a basketball team.

    Yeah, I mean, the war between the ottomans and the sultanate of Cairo was very sad, but hey, at least the Reinheitsgebot made our beer better!

    If you want to make yourself sick look at who taken fairly close after each of these players

    Marcus Morris would actually be a plus to have about now.

    I say let CP3 get surgery wherever he's sore and let James Harden sit out with a mysterious toe injury like Kevin Love. It's better late than never to play the lottery odds. We're embarrassing ourselves more by being mediocre losing badly with our core players.

    The 14th pick for Lowry to Trade for Harden would've been Giannis Antetenkounpo and Marcus Morris over Kawhi Leonard that's how bad Daryl Morey is with 1st Round Picks.

    I would rather have Giannis Antetenkounpo and Kawhi Leonard on the Rockets than Harden.

    I really like Morris brothers. They can defend three positions and have good shooting accuracy.Can cause trouble to opponents on the offensive end

    The most important thing is that they are both tough men.

    I wasn’t alive in 1516 but I am very disappointed nonetheless. Honestly with the way we’re playing we’re one Harden injury away from being in that conversation.

    Y'all gon' learn to not let this team bother you so much. Don't sit up upset, sad, and depressed over them losing. They're enjoying their lives. I used to be so hurt when the Rockets lost. I'm glad those days are behind me. If they win great. If they lose, awesome. It's just entertainment. If they win a trophy, you don't even get to touch it.

    Damn, you've been following the Rox for a lonnnnnng time. If I recall, that was the year they lost to the Republic of Venice Lions in the Ottoman Empire Finals.

    If we are just spit-balling, Cam Reddish would be the best fit of the Duke boys, true SF, lockdown potential in the NBA, and NBA range on his 3. If you somehow get pick 7 or 8 in the draft, it's not completely unrealistic to trade up to 4. Zion and Barrett are out of the question. You're not getting a top 2 pick, even if you attach EG and future picks.

    This team definitely sucks but if they wanted to tank, that decision would've had to take place before they signed CP3 to his contract. And after last season there was no reason to even want to tank.
