    You trust a fraud then. Tim MacMahon explicitly said he had multiple sources and checked with them and said that Goodwill's account did not check out.

    You need to do something about that avatar. I get it, you don't like the deal. But, that's too much. He's part of the squad now!

    I don't know what else the guy has to say. It's a business. The NBA, the media. What's bad about the sports media, at least that covering the league, is that they do make sh** up. All the time. We've seen numerous examples just this off-season, with Chris and James, with Kawhi, etc., and it's unfair to the players, the fans, who get misled, the organizations who are damaged by it to one degree or another.

    The NBA talking heads don't seem to care if they are "caught out." They only care about the ratings or the clicks on their websites. ESPN doesn't fire anyone for it. They might fire someone for "bad" ratings, but not because they were caught either intentionally lying, making things up, or repeating something they know to be false. Agents? They can make up things as well. It can be harder to catch them at it, and they are probably the reason behind some of this stuff, but far from all of it. In my opinion.

    To me, it seems like there may have been some issues. I'm not willing to discount all of the reports. However, it seems like they have worked out whatever it was and don't want to have any further media drama.

    Again.

    It was never personal.

    James Harden said it right after the season when asked about what he thought about moves or losing coaches he had relationships with .... “I just want to win.”

    It’s really simple, if he didn’t think Westbrook would help the Rockets win, he wouldn’t have supported the trade. Same for the coaches and players around him. He is pretty damn straight forward.

    Honestly compare this situation to the Dwight one? Did you ever see THIS much push back from us regarding Dwight? No, no you did not. Do you guys remember what Harden said about Dwight during his FA? "He's a grown man he can do what he wants." Thats it.

    You think TIM MACMAHON is going to bat for the Rockets and cover for us????? No, think about it.

    Not to mention Rivers and Tucker coming out and straight up denying it.

    1) Vince Goodwill [Yahoo Sports] = Fraud
    2) Tim MacMahon [ESPN] = Accurate.

    Do y'all think Harden had any parting words/a final conversation with CP3? I'd like to believe he did...but part of me somehow thinks Harden is too passive and non-confrontational to do at least that much.

    And let's get this out of the way right now as well......if the Rockets don't win with Westbrook.....guess what will happen? He will be gone.

    Harden will do whatever it takes *in Houston* to win a title.
