    He don't got no crystal ball. He should just come out and say that first before he starts doubting teams.

    I don't feel great about the defense either. But dude, this team has looked pretty good.

    Predicting one of 30 teams is not going to win a championship is like predicting a coin toss is not going to go heads 5x in a row.

    Sure its smart insofar as its not dumb and Bayesianly fundamental but its hardly noteworthy in terms of forecasting acuity.

    I am afraid that he is right on this. With the defense we played lately, you are not going to make noise in the playoff. With the talent we have on this team, we are definitely capable of playing good D. They said Elston Turner is a great defensive coach, I just don’t see it so far.

    RJ as an analyst is the worst. ESPN just gave him a contract so get used to this stuff. He doesn't even try.

    He aggressively dislikes the Rockets and I don't understand why.

    Well he is right with this defense you ain't winning ****, it's still early to tell. But as usual Richard Jefferson is a little bitch and didnt provide a valid argument when Rachel threw the cavs situation back in 2017.

    He has a right to his opinion. If we play like we are now in the playoffs then of course we are not going to win anything. It is however the first week of the season. His opinion may change later.

    With all due respect, I cannot take serious the opinions of a man that cannot be honest about his own sexuality to himself and others.

    If he cannot even come to conclusions about something so basic, then he sure as hell cannot provide any meaningful insight on other issues.

    Jefferson is also the only player I know that played shittier under Popovich. They honored their promise but wanted him gone.

    Not the language I would use. As of a few years ago he was still trying to convince himself he was heterosexual and dating women but never having sexual relations if you are to believe what was being passed around the league.

    I do not care if he is a homosexual or heterosexual or bisexual. However it is hard to value the sincerity and opinions of a 40 year old man that doesn’t even acknowledge and accept what he is.

    Yikes. This thread got nasty fast. I don’t agree with him either, but it’s pretty lame to attack his character and lob fifth grade insults at him rather than disputing what he is saying. America in 2019, indeed.

    Sad reality is this is the worst defense I’ve seen in the last decade. I don’t knowing it’s MDA in his attempt to speed the game up or what, but this defense won’t cut it. And it’s nit like we don’t have guys that can play defense in CC, Gordon, RW, and Tucker.

    Steps to fix the Rockets:

    1) Sign Melo

    1a) Make Jeff B. an offer he cant refuse and ask him if he would like to make any changes to our current roster.

    2) Fire Melo

    3) Confirm hiring of Jeff B.

    4) Prosper
