    That was one of the most bizarre / amazing things I've ever seen. Aldridge was possessed in that series.

    Man this is almost as bad a sports take as those who thought Terrence Jones was a good basketball player.

    He ended the Rockets statement with "and get them off to bad start in the playoffs". He's more worried about us taking one game in San Antonio than us taking a series from them.

    But that is definitely not as bad a sports take as those who thought GSW were a fluke. This is perhaps the single worst GARM take ever.

    Utah has an easy schedule so most likely we will be 8th seed. Lebron confirmed resting on Tuesday so hopefully the Rockets can actually take advantage of that....

    I personally think we can beat any team besides the Warriors in the playoffs

    so, please, just not 8th place

    It was defensible at the time, and the Warriors playoff run last year WAS a fluke, I just didn't see them getting considerably better than they were last year and that's what happened.

    lmao
    you aint have to do that man

    I agree with this as well. I honestly believe we are just chugging along to the playoffs - Les and Morey must know this. we don't care about HCA anymore.

    It's not going to be easy no matter if we face GS or Spurs.

    Actually I feel more comfortable of an upset if we face GS.

    And your response to that is not, "oh, well, I wanted it to be a fluke. I just hate that team, and wanted them to bomb."

    Instead, you try desperately to defend an undefendable position, as usual.

    You are a hopelessly bad sports debater...like Skip Bayless

    If Skip Bayless and Daryl Morey agree, it must be true. I have a new optimism for the playoffs now. :)

    Ah and the great Jones apologist comes out to whine. Had to know that was coming.

    The playoff run WAS a fluke and given their injury history, it wasn't unreasonable to think they'd have a year plagued by injury after an isolated season with no injuries at all, instead they became a much better team and still haven't had injuries of consequence. Of course, I know this is just you throwing a soiled tampon and not an actual conversation so I'll just leave it there so that hopefully you won't attempt to derail the thread any more.

    Keep trolling with that as a defense to your inability to follow a dialogue of debate about basketball. I never took a position on Jones as you keep desperately trying to say I did. So lame to bring in lies as misdirection as a debate tactic.


    Admit it, you cannot defend a position saying GSW was a fluke last year.

    lol you're still trying to defend yourself on this and still can't admit you were completely out of it on this one.

    its funny, as much as you tried to push it, when I went the tip jar route, you shushed real quick

    Coming from the guy who first tried to derail the thread by bringing TJones into the discussion.

    Go ahead and Hit n Run the thread then duck out with FTW Rockets FTW makes a fool of you, since your GSW comments are undefendable, anyhow.
