    Well it's up to Harden to approve.

    Is he done chasing scoring titles and MVPs?

    So . . .just to be clear
    No one will complain if the offense is less efficient, scores less and we only win 51 games?

    In for a penny
    In for a pound

    launching 14 step back 3s a game. surely there's room to dial that down in there somewhere. you don't really think every single dribble dribble dribble iso possession is the best shot the rockets can get do you. come on now

    I agree, it's Harden's decision to make.

    They also need taller and longer players while we are at it.

    I won't complain if that same offense is reliable and consistent in the playoffs

    I'm OK lowering the ceiling if it buys us steady albeit less efficient buckets.

    Also , if the "new" offense sucks then we can just go back to "give the ball to James and gtfo"

    Fans don’t care about offensive efficiency ... outside what it means relative to the final outcome.

    I’ve noted this many times. The Rockets offensive efficiency drops in the playoffs. Not just “oh yeah it’s the playoffs of course it will drop”.... they go from 2nd best ORtg to 6th or 7th. This has happened many years in a row now.

    Long story short... it’s playoffs that matter. Playoff advancement. Playoff offensive efficiency. Playoff role player performance. Playoff net margin. Etc.

    Management is going to get their hands slapped by Iso Man.
