    Where your hometown team can't close out a team without Kawhi in 2017 and this year couldn't beat the warriors without their best player. This team is meant to disappoint year after year, let's see what they do going forward but as of now it's same the same shii just different year

    Agreed.

    Reality began when we lost Game 5. You simply have to win a game like that if you're a baller.

    Right now... it's Jordan and Harvey.

    Could Houston have still won without those happenings? Maybe... AND I'M HAPPY WE WON.

    But there's no denying dramatic things occured the *only* times we've won.


    Save the "Jordan played in 1995".

    It's a very good team but they are not able to make adjustments mentally on the fly....

    Durant goes out, nobody has a new plan.

    What's the rest of the Western Conference's excuse for the last 5 years? Warriors have beaten the West soundly.

    CHOKE CONFERENCE?

    Lol lets just blame everything on the so called rig job...the only rig job was what the rockets did to themselves this year without KD they choked plain n simple but you can call it what you want to help your cause

    What a load of hooey.

    Straighten this one out for me, because I’ve merely been listening to this conundrum being spouted off but haven’t quite solved the equation yet...

    If the Warriors “are better without Durant”, how did the Rockets also then choke? Are they the greatest team ever or not? You don’t choke losing to a dynasty. There is no shame. And yet? Here come Rockets “fans” shaming their own team because they’d rather agree with double speaking ESPN than realize they never had a chance.

    Only people in Houston would wear “choke city” with pride.

    The warriors are the 90s Jordan Bulls and the Rockets are knicks,pacers and heat. It's tough man

    How do you choke as a 4 seed losing to a 1 seed? Dudes need to look up the definition of “choke”.

    Curry was their best player. Durant was just injury insurance for Klay or Draymond getting hurt.

    The Dynamo and Comets are offended...

    ...and the Rice Owls Baseball Team of 2003 is also appalled.

    You choke away the 2 seed to the Thunder. Chokers. That’s what they are and it started before the playoffs

    Choke is a strong word, I would say we failed to seize the moment.
