    It isn't missing the playoffs. We're not getting out of the 1st round this year anyway. And we get our 1st round draft pick back.

    The worst nightmare is ...

    ... missing the playoffs with the Portland Trailblazers, Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz making it right above us in the standings. If you don't know why this sucks, you're not a true Rockets fan.

    And even worse, Jerry Lin of the Charlotte Hornets is most likely going to play in the playoffs. And possibly as high as the 3rd seed.

    Come to think of it, keeping Terrence Jones and Corey Brewer next season may rank right up there.

    I am a true rockets fan and I can tell you. I would rather those three teams make it above us because they will end up having to wear the dress and become Golden States prom date that has to put out in the back seat of a chevy. I would rather have the pick. Watching our team get humiliated in the first round doesn't sound fun.

    Only agree for Dallas. The Trailblazers and Jazz are young, and playoff experience can only bode well for development. Dallas, on the other hand, has nothing to gain from making the playoffs.

    For the Rockets, it is humiliating not to make the playoffs. Look at the roster of the Jazz, Trailblazers and Mavericks. The Rockets on paper should be in the tier of the Thunders and Clippers.

    Not going to prom is for losers, nerd! Especially when you get a chance to go with that dreamy-eyed Stephen Curry! Everyone will be watching you!

    Yea. And the next day when you show up to school walking with a limp they will know exactly what happened after prom. No thanks.

    Also, this team has not EARNED the right to go to the prom. They should be grounded for getting an F in Art, PE, and Study Hall

    Yeah who ever made that decision with this team needs to be fired. I know teams don't like to bring new coaches in during the season but if we hired a real coach after letting Kevin go the team would have had plenty of time to learn the coaches system and the coach would have had time to know his players. The rockets organization just flushed this season down the toilet when they decided to let JB coach the whole season.

    I'm numb to who is finishing above us. Watching this team all season has been like being punched in the face every night for a year.

    There's a recurring theme with those 3 teams.

    Something that Houston lacks.

    Rhymes with 'good poach'

    My worst nightmare is we make the playoffs and get destroyed while losing the pick and Dwight gets injured and decides to opt in. Meanwhile OKC wins the title vs the Hawks and Durant and Horford resign with their teams. Then we give Barnes the max.
