    Disappointed with PJ! He was next to Quitten and he didn’t knock his teeth out? At the very least he should’ve gouged his eyes out!!

    Not sure if PJ lacked confidence because he felt nervous around Pippen or if he himself doesn't have full faith in the Rockets' offense.

    Either way, not a convincing defense of our style.

    I for one agree with the predictability point. But I also recognize the Warriors may be the most talented team ever assembled.

    Before clicking the video, look at Rachel's face, that's probably the same the Rockets staff did when they saw the exchange :D

    Cause it's true, we play very predictable. When harden did go to midrange it was an automatic 2 pts. Bottom line is THE COACH doesn't make adjustments according to game flow. Which it boggles my mind they awarding him an extension...

    Why does he say KD is the best player in the league and most offensive player in the league. Did he forget he is Harden's teammate?

    Worse, they said the warriors won because they aren’t predictable. They ran the same play 22 times or something in the 4th quarters of game 5 and 6. They were super predictable

    I dont know if you frequent R/nba but there was an AMA from a former NBA video coordinator and he said the most predictable offenses were Rockets and Warriors in that you know what they were running but you couldn't stop them. Thats super funny to me.

    I don’t think it’s even a nuanced argument re KD.

    KD going out in the middle of a series makes the Warriors play differently and forces teams to adjust. But if teams had to play the Warriors without KD the whole season and the playoffs, they’d have a much easier time than if KD was on that team. It’s the adjustment period that affects teams, rather than the effectiveness of the non-KD lineup

    When they say play "unpredictable" they mean move the ball around alot instead of 1 guy just dribbling at the top waiting for a screen for:
    A)pick and roll
    B)kick to corner for a 3
    C)step back 3

    Except option A was nonexistent cause Clint is weak asf....

    Me too. This is one of the reasons I’ve lost confidence in Morey being able to put together a championship team. He has neither the players or the coach to get it done during the playoffs.
