With OKC getting Melo, are we even a top 4 seed in the West?

Discussion in 'Houston Rockets: Game Action & Roster Moves' started by swyyyguy, Sep 23, 2017.

?

Are we now the 4th seed or the 5th seed in the West?

  1. 4th seed, barely.

    72.1%
  2. 5th seed, no more home court advantage.

    27.9%

    Warriors, Thunder, and Spurs are all clearly better than us so we're the 4th seed AT BEST. We only have 2 stars just like the Blazers. We better not drop any lower than the 4th seed. :mad:

    Rather he went to Portland, he really got desperate after that Knicks conference where they said he would be staying...

    1. By "us" I assume you mean your Mavs?

    2. The Thunder and Spurs are not "clearly better" than the Rockets.

    After playing with Westbrook for a couple months, Melo will want out like Durant. He'll be in Houston by February.

    3 stars > 2 stars

    REMINDER: The Spurs beat us last year in only SIX games WITHOUT Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard. :(

    4-5th seed and second round exit

    If CP3 leaves after the season I might turn on Morey

    If CP3 leaves this season its time to fire Morey.

    Absolutely inexcusable that you go all in on CP3 and decide to play it safe with Melo. Especially when CP3 can just opt out and ****ing leave. Really ****ing pissed off at how he handled this.

    Not when you have sh!t for your other starters and bench, as OKC now does.

    And we were WITHOUT Chris Paul, the best point guard of the last two decades.

    This confirms. Paul is def heading out with Lebron / Wade.

    Exactly. U don't go all in and second guess a trade with someone that's begging to come here.

    Gordon or Capela. Get it done.

    Gordon's getting older.

    Capela will make 100-115 mill contract soon.

    If the Timberwolves big 3 really clicks, we could be the 6th seed...

    This is a joke.

    OKC, even with Melo now, is not clearly better than us. They might be, might not. See how the season goes. We were by far better than them and we added CP3 (who is better than George or Carmelo) and Tucker and Luc.

    San Antonio is older and lost Simmons who was a big bench player for them. They are not clearly better than us either.



    Stop overreacting.

    It will depend on how the new rule would be implemented.

    We have way better depth, outside of their starting 5 they have nothing. Adams and Roberson are far from great so I wouldn't even say they have the better starting 5.
