    And I know I’m not the only one.


    What the hell happened to our team. This is stomach churning and unbelievably painful to watch. The turnovers, the bricks, the failed offensive ISO’s... and the defense... my god.

    it was clear the team was worse than last year heading into the season...I didn’t see them being this much worse tho

    this was officially a lost season once Morey missed out on Jimmy Butler

    the Rockets are the oldest team in the league and have limited ways of getting meaningfully better...things will only get worse from here as this core ages and declines

    I think the offense was always on edge.

    He difference between great and so so with this style offense is paper thin.

    If you aren’t hitting threes it’s stuck. If one of your main guys with such incredible usage is off, it’s a problem.

    But if it’s going well.... man does it work!!

    Feast or famine.

    Newsflash no trade will save this team. Simply the league caught on that drivers are only going to kick it out for a three. It’s a pathetic system due to fail unless you are always on from three. Mda has to change it or unfortunately he’s gone.

    Good thing we've lived through this before (2015-16) so fans know how to cope!....except we don't have McHale or Bickerstaff to blame.

    Hmmmm.....

    They were a hamstring away from winning a championship and over the summer the league seemed to go in a direction they weren't prepared for... Never seen anything like it.

    Other teams seem to have a hell of a lot more youthful energy. A vibrancy. They play with more joy, and not just the top teams. The Rockets look old, slow, and joyless.

    We've been an old team with injury prone stars before ... and Morey managed to dig us out of that spot relatively quickly .

    We need a little luck for sure ; but hey , maybe we are due for some good fortune .

    What direction did the league go? That part is confusing.

    Someone needs to do something. Whether it's Harden, Daryl, or MDA. One of them needs to do something. At this point I think us as fans would be fine with just a competitive team. We all have to be rational enough to know this team isn't making it to the WCF again. But if the Rockets can manage to win like.. 45 games this season then that would be nice. We just want our team to be competitive.

    Either Harden leads the team to wins like he did in 2015
    or Daryl fixes the roster
    or MDA finds a way to make an effective offense that isn't just ISO and threes

    Someone has do something

    To be fair Harden is only 29, Capela 24


    The only old piece is 40 mill per 33 Y/O Paul...


    If this doesn’t fix, I say dump Paul for expirings and go into next FA with some cap.

    no excuses, we are a trash team!
    let's trade Harden and everyone else for picks. I would rather start from scratch, harden ain't winning shxt for us. let him go back to L.A.!
    I don't mind we rebuild in the next couple of years

    they think it's going to be easy every game and they don't give a **** until the deficit is already insurmountable. d'antoni does absolutely nothing. they need to wake the **** up.
