    Harden got his cash and personal ring last yr. Got to pretend hes the best player in the game...yeah right

    Cp3 got his cash and got to pretend to be a gm.

    Capela got his cash

    Diantoni thinks he got his revenge. At least we thought...but maybe melo will get him twice

    Morey is just an idiot. Strutting around last yr with the advanced stats bullshit then decides to bring the ultimate loser melo and let go of winners in ariza and luc. Wtf

    These guys, inc morey, were all satisfied with the conference finals and personal goals + money. They went as far as they have ever been + will ever go and they know it. Dont let cp3 with his bs we'll be aight, aint no team can beat us 4 of 7 times, crap fool you...the guy was a big reason for melo. That says enough for me.

    Now it seems tv commercials are more important. They are getting hammered by 40 tonight, but at least we get to see cp3 and james putting in the effort in front of the camera

    This is a trash team that will end up with the 7 or 8 seed and get trashed by the warriors.

    Go for zion...and trade any of those guys to increase our odds.

    At this point nothing. Chemistry is thoroughly thru the roof. But downwards.

    Tillman taking out loans to buy the team was a bad sign. Ariza was the glue guy and the enforcer. The one guy on the team everyone in the league respected and wouldn't f with. The team looks soft and gives up anytime the other team goes hard at them. Les played us like a fiddle and walked out the door with our trophies.

    No, we don’t have a chance. We are not gonna match the pace at which a lot of the teams I mentioned rack up L’s.

    Said it before and ill say it again, unless we can get another all-star on Dec 15th, trade everyone but Harden and tank for Zion. Shut down Harden for the season or rest him on b2b.

    This entire season will be meaningless if this continues. We're looking at a classic 9th/10th seed mediocrity season at best. We're just unlucky that the West is no joke this year. Rockets are currently the 3rd worst team in the west.... :eek::eek:

    The toughest part is that this 0.500 or semi sub 0.500 record is like purgatory in the West. Too good to tank. But not good enough to do much as a playoff team, even at that.

    These are tough tough decisions.

    It's difficult but to be indecisive is worse. Some in the other tank thread were ridiculing the thought, but the season is showing who the pragmatic realists are on this board, vs. the Walter Mitty dreamers.

    And for those who need to look up Walter Mitty, that's not a compliment.

    If texans weren't playing so amazing with such intensity and heart, I would be the same level of angry.

    I expected a team with Harden, Paul, Capela and Gordon to be better, as everyone should have lol.

    I expected the team to try, but that clearly was too much to ask for.

    OP wants to give up on / trade the reigning MVP, one of the best PGs in the history of the game, one of the best young 5s in the game, a 2 time coach of the year and arguably the best GM in the game...

    ...for the chance to draft an untested child, in college.
