    Finally, a report from someone who actually knows the team and the players.

    Lotta loose lips for just "aww shucks we lost we just want to win frustration." :D

    I guess the Warriors leaks should be starting any day now.

    Good. Still I don’t mind negative publicity per se as these supposed changes are just talk. Just like what Morey and Tilman like to do so until they learn their lesson, keep it coming. CP3 and Harden can handle it and actually use the negative press for motivation and also don’t really care.

    Chris: We need to change our style of play. Less Iso and more team movement. This will help you out too, James.
    Eric: Yea I agree. Maybe it'll make us all..happier.
    PJ: I'm down for whatever
    Clint: Can I still keep my blonde patch?
    James: Sure we can do that but are you going to miss less than 10 games Chris? How about you, Eric? Do we have to wait until April for you to actually get hot?
    Chris: Man you know that's not something I can control. We just want to have more ball movement.
    James: I'm cool with that-I really am. But we go into a system with more ball movement and, for some reason, you go down for 10-15 games. What are we going to do while you're out?
    Eric: We can still run the same system
    Clint: Yea I can still catch.....lobs?
    PJ: Shut up, Clint
    James: Okay we run the same system, fine. Then what happens when you're out too Eric? All I'm saying is that we can run a system with more ball movement, that's fine. We do that and then, boom, our team goes down with injuries so then we switch it back to me doing all of the work. We go back to Iso-James until you guys come back from injury and go back to the first system? Do we have time to get you guys back up to speed, work your way back to playing shape?
    Chris: I'm just trying to find another way for us to be successful where it doesn't involve you having to take every shot.
    Clint: Maybe I can shoot 3s?
    PJ: Shut up, Clint

    And you're trying so hard to believe "ahh nothing to see here. All is well. #RunItBack #RunAsOne"

    Yeah, I do believe there's some truth to these reports. And?

    Big bad mean media trying to take down the Rockets who haven't won anything in 24 years.

    "Rockets took the Warriors to the most games & were closest to taking them down. Media doesn't want to see it."
    "Rockets are now the favorites in the West, are gonna win a title and the media doesn't want it. They want the Lakers."


    EL OH ****ING EL.

    As @Os Trigonum likes to say, "media conspiracy". Hey @Os Trigonum, do you think Adam Silver instructed the media to take down James Harden & ruin his career, ruin the Rockets?

    I’m hoping multiple players on the team attack loser Goodwill and try to destroy his credibility...this nobody coming out of nowhere with “sources” trying to paint things as being far worse than they really are

    I hate clout chasing like this...Goodwill needs to get handled

    As usual, people are going to believe what they want to believe, regardless if it’s factual or not. Personally I think the majority of the media piggy-back off each other without having real sources to verify the information! If it’s juicy, they’re all going to bite on it ... dysfunctional/hostile/trade rumors are marketing bonanza! If you don’t believe me, just look at how Clutchfans lights up when these rumors are first presented.

    Fake news is real news to somebody...o_O

    Go Rockets !!!

    Yeah honestly I don't believe him (Iko). I know he frequents the board, but he has a real job and has to keep his access, so most likely the Rockets told him to do this. If you're reading, it's ok man I understand you have to do it.

    I believe CP3 wants out, but only if it's to a better city/situation. I think Harden wants him out too and although it's a real cold move, from a basketball perspective he would be absolutely right that Paul's contract/decline is the biggest risk to him being able to win a championship. I think Morey tried to shop him and there were no opportunities. Tilman obviously is always on the money-saving side.

    Messy situation. Could explode, could resolve. 1 year and a few months ago you would have laughed if someone told you the Raptors would be champions.

    Nah, @J.R. used to just post the news, now he rides the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. After this all clears up, he'll be happy again. For now, just enjoy vintage Pre D'Antoni J.R.
