    Watching emotionally charged, wild, pessimistic takes swinging all over the place from game to game....Seeing the outlandish comments made as if some of you are on the rack....It seems many are in such a state, as to not recognize reality.
    Get some perspective...

    The Rockets just went through a stretch of years where we had to face one of the NBA's greatest dynasties each time in the playoffs. I realize there's not a lot of solace in being placed second. But, Damn..it took the League's intercession/injury to keep us from AT LEAST one title of our own. We've had a GREAT team.
    And still do..We possess arguably, the greatest offensive player of all time. The best player in the game today, whose been doing historic things on a regular basis...for years. James has had multiple MVP's stolen from him. (just like the NBA title (s) )

    At present, we're a work in progress. Even so, whilst going through this acclimation period..our Rockets are right there, once again. Russ brings athleticism, rebounding, pace, defense (yes), and the ability to create/finish/get to the line...All things we needed. He almost completes us.(still need another big wing).

    We're just getting going .....after a major (and much needed) move. Give it some time. Also, I'm sure DM will spice it up a little bit.

    Try to take some satisfaction in what we've accomplished..first. (think about how it's all gone down)

    Then, check out what we have in comparison to the rest of the League.

    We're cool.

    Yes... we possess the greatest offensive player of all time and this org fails to get him a ring year after year.

    I'm still pissed Harden can't carry Tracy McCready to a championship with his play

    Do you mean championship or insufferable whining? You must be fun at parties.

    Harden is an all time great Rocket and arguably the second best SG of all time.

    However I don’t think Harden has earned it to be criticism free.

    I'd like to see an age breakdown of posters. Not that age is the only thing that can create an overreactive, entitled, or personally wronged mindset in a poster, but I always imagine them as in the throes of adolescence or some bitter stage of life. I also wonder how much media (ESPN/cable news) helps form the way we discuss problems and react to them in productive ways.

    It's not just that we lost to them, they kicked our ass and completely exposed our defense and
    I can appreciate what we have while also realizing that we we've been exposed.
