    Could be pretty good pair, like the old ewing and jvg. Having Hakeem here and everything, and Embiid is only 26 years old.

    Who else is would be interested in some change?

    I'm sure Embiid would really enjoy playing with an athletic non-shooting PG. Definitely didn't have that experience in Philly.

    Serious man you put these 2 together and promote defense, could be something else.

    What? Embiid had Simmons, who is basically a taller Westbrook. Embiid needs to be surrounded by 4 players who can at least shoot, so that people won't cheat off the non-shooter (Westbrook, Simmons) and double Embiid.

    Even though Embiid can shoot the ball, there's a reason Capela was moved to accomodate Westbrook. If Embiid's strength is offense close to the paint, having Westbrook there will gum up the works.

    Lol a portion of this board really believes Embiid to Houston is some sort of lock.

    Westbrook for Simmons or Embiid

    Can't trade Harden

    And Philly won't take Westbrook lol.

    No way Embiid ends up here without a third team and some fools

    I meant jvg, obviously Westbrook would be shipped out for rebuilding blocks to surround Emiid, this intact for rest of the team to be moved as well Gordon, Tucker, House, Etc..

    Harden can’t get it done, so we need to get rid of him...while we do that, let’s orgasm over bringing in a retread like JVG whose teams lost 2 game 7s in the 1st round...1 by 40 points, and 1 at home...both after being up 2-0...and let’s fantasize about Embiid, the dude who gets obliterated by teams like the Celtics, makes Chris Paul look like PJ health-wise, and who would bring about worse results than Harden

    JVG, Embiid, and mediocre shooting/mediocre players...how exciting

    Well jvg was damn good when he coached tmac and yao here. Thing is you talk about rebuilding and Houston it starts around the tradition of centers .I mean every year you see the same with Harden. Ball hogging and throwing up tons of 3s are not going to get you championship. He's had 3 stars around him and they can't make a finals apperance, I mean I know your in love with the guy reeko. Man crush

    How many ridiculous "Embiid to Houston" threads do we need? Apparently the answer was "one more." It's not happening. Quit kidding yourselves.

    LeBron & Ty Lue?
    Giannis & Jason Kidd?
    Kawhi & Sam Cassell?

    There's nothing to Morey-Philly, Harden-Philly clickbait (and who cares if Mike ends up in Philly, unless you're a DOF.)

    “damn good”...ha, getting waxed by 40 in game 7...getting beat by Utah after being up 2-0...never making the 2nd round...that’s your definition of damn good...if that’s the case, then MDA was damn elite

    Tradition of Centers? Yeah, back in the 90s and early 2000s. Do u know that it’s the year 2020 now? What, Embiid is Hakeem now? U are in love with fantasizing about mediocrity and posting delusional nonsense like the Rockets giving up Russ and getting Towns in return. Next...

    Delusion is trying to get a center to match ad, it's not delusional, yes I know what times it is, every team that's competing in the playoffs have a tradional center. Imo you ain't got the answer to rocket ball, all you do is come around here and critique fools like your Warren g or some **** regulate Deez bricks bro.

    It’s a dream but dantoni would really have to force a trade for Eric Gordon and House maybe Russ too

    If it's as simple as Harden "can't get it done", who do you think you could put in his place that could "get it done" with this team (or any team he's had in Houston)? You have your pick of any player in the NBA. Hell, you can even pick throughout history, if you want.

    Do you have your list?

    Is there anyone on it?

    OK, now who on that list do you think we actually have any chance of acquiring?

    P.S. If Joel Embiid is on your list, your list is fraudulent. Joel Embiid can't even sniff the bottom of that list. Even if he was half as durable as Harden.
