    Harden and Paul both need Clint and yes Paul absolutely is the second best player on the team. Again you are counting dude’s pockets...sheesh

    If you mention me, say what you have to say. Don't sneak diss.

    For instance, I can call you about the way you went at Faried last night. You're complaining about a vet minimum guy that is averaging more ppg as a Rocket than Chris Paul at $160 mil, lol.

    I digress.

    This I fully agree with, whether or not fatigue is involved, Harden should be the one in the driver's seat most of the time.

    I can forgive pretty much all of his lapses, though, because his burden is gigantic. And hopefully the Nuggets game Chris Paul will be the one we see going forward, where he's hitting shots with good efficiency and finding open shooters that should hit their ****ing shots.

    You are right I should have @ you and you know what I should have told your thread that using individual defensive FG% is pretty useless and without context. So trying to asses defense that way doesn’t work.

    Lol are you kidding me? Is that really how you wanna go, the money route AGAIN....

    Except Harden in the drivers seast was bad last night. Sometimes it’s okay for him not to have the ball.

    I use the eye test, and the stat backs up pretty much everything I see.
    Everyone that had a bad def fg% over these last few games has looked like trash on defense to the naked eye, especially Ennis.

    And yes, I will always go back to the money because it determines the amount of quality depth that a team can have. If someone is taking up $40 mil per year, he needs to be putting up numbers comparable to other guys in the league making that amount (Harden, LeBron, Westrook, Curry, etc.)

    Chris is not.

    True...it's just disheartening when even an exhausted Harden is hitting shots at a better clip than the majority of our players, though Gordon and Paul were good last night.

    I think a lot of the regular season problems will be alleviated when Capela gets back. I think the mood of the GARM will improve too.

    I think you are spot on we got to get 15 to 20 games healthy for our team to get a rhythm. Playoff rhythm is more important than seeding with the exception that they are in the opposite side of the Warriors in the Bracket. The Playoffs will be a war this year no one has a clear advantage to get to the Finals

    We are witnessing a identity shift.

    Either way, this team isn’t doing anything until the fine a big and wing.

    Remember that the Rockets won their last 5 games with CP, Harden, and Capela.

    The Rockets lost last night because Denver shot the ball very very well and we really don't have much rim protection without Clint. Paul and the Rockets shot the ball well themselves, but Denver was just really on their game.

    I'm more concerned about the players surrounding Harden and Paul than anything else. Our supporting cast must hit shots and play defense.

    Let’s trade CP3 to the “right” team and move on as Harden’s team and fill in the gaps with better role players. It’s the right thing to do for Paul, too. —> he is wasting his talents here, then. He needs a new home where he can shine.
