    Rockets were much much better off keeping CP3. Could easily have used the assets we packaged with CP3 to get some complimentary pieces. Westbrook is simply not the right fit for a team like the Rockets.

    Yup. It’s like watching game of thrones now knowing how it ends.
    We had two opportunities to go to the finals.
    one was the series we missed 27 threes.
    the other was last year when Durant missed those games.
    We are not going anywhere with this roster. I lost interest but i am still keeping an eye on the standings. The actual games are boring as fk

    The Rockets are my favorite sports team. That said **** them. Just like the Texans pre-Watson I need change.

    Rockets don’t feel like a team this year, just a bench of scrubs to save taxes...

    I don't blame anybody for not being interested in a team that can't be bothered to give consistent effort

    Year 8 of the Harden experiment. We’ve already seen his best and this teams best. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough before and he nor this team are as good as the previous couple of years. Every year ends in disappointment one way or another. Trading CP3 for WB isn’t exactly a move that encourages confidence. Quite the opposite actually.

    Ding ding ding......Unfortunately this is why many fans just dont care anymore....If the players are not going to play hard every night why should the fans care?

    We don't want to admit it but Houston are just an ugly side to watch. No one wants to watch Harden shot a million free throws a game and chuck non stop threes. Same goes with the rest of the team, hoisting 3 pointers is just not good to watch.

    So Rockets fans are finally coming around to what the analysts, experts, other fans & basically rest of the NBA said years ago. The Rockets play a boring, ugly style of basketball that isn't fun to watch. :D
    Glad everyone is on the same page now.

    2017-2018 was good enough. They should have won a ring. The team was built perfectly and they were all in to win. I respect that, just an unfortunate break with CP3 going down.

    This team does not get respect. Cheaped out in almost every situation and does not give real effort even half the time. The window appears to be shut on this era.

    Rockets have a "I Don't Give A F" energy that they give off to the fanbase so the fanbase is unintentionally returning the favor.

    The team sucks. I’ve probably watched less than 5 games this year. Actually I’m sure it less than 5 lol. But that’s ok

    Even the years when all we had was Lowry scola and k mart were more fun to watch .

    When AB was our starting PG, and right before Lowry was about to be discovered as the better player, I came over from Australia and hunkered down in Houston to watch 8 games.

    They only won one of those games and I didn't even care.

    Loved watching them play because Lowry and Scola would scrap every second of the game.

    Coming back for the first time since. Only watching one game this time around. I'm not wasting my hard earned money on this.

    I think I remember you! Yea bro those teams were great it was so fun rooting for the underdog, call me crazy but I always hoped they made it in the 8th seed instead of the 14thpick even if they had a 1 percent chance of advancing.

    No wasted possessions. Good times.

    Scola could help train capaela and maybe show house a few moves in the post.

    Scola did better than capeala in fiba! #justSaying

    For me, it's not just the Rockets, it's the NBA as a whole. First year of my life i've barely watched basketball. It's an arcade game now and if i wanted that, i could just pick up a video game. I've spent more time this season watching old school games and player highlights than current games this season.
