    I would think everyone in the org would want him gone and that includes harden.

    I say keep him based on his skill set. If Harden and WB can forgive him then there is no reason to move him

    If he’s lost his teammates trust and there is no repairing it then move him for the best big or draft asset available.

    He'll be traded but not because of what happened in the bubble. He was always going to get traded. He is one of the few trade assets we have to leverage for improvement.

    There's 3 groups in a Morey team: stars, cheap vets, and trade assets. The Greens or Nene's of the world are not trade assets because other teams can't plan around aging role players so they add more value with us. Stars are what he's usually searching for, so he's typically looking to keep those. Everyone else who was value will be traded at some point.

    The league has aspiration of going outside the bubble next season, but it's not a lock. If next season starts in the bubble again, are the other guys in the locker-room, the organization, and the media not going to 2nd guess House.

    The less idiots on your team the better.

    Let's be honest. If they can get fair value for him and an upgrade at the 4 or 5 (hopefully the latter, but WTF is a 5 on this team anyhow?), then he's gone. Our success against the Lakers would have been measured in increments. You need only win by 1 point. Until the Game 5 annihilation, when the Rockets were just beat down mentally and physically, the games were close.

    House wasn't the only reason we cratered so fast. Some of the other players are still missing but might be located if we heed our Amber Alerts. But House? He really, really, really screwed the pooch.

    We are all debating whether or not he should stay. He's out in Austin this weekend hosting pool parties. He just spent three months locked in a controlled environment because of a dangerous world altering virus, decided to break rules letting his team down while he was finally breaking out as a player, leaves said bubble, and now he's out partying like the virus has been defeated. I cannot imagine his teammates are pleased with him. I cannot imagine this is going to help his trade value. I hope John Lucas gets him on the phone and helps him through whatever is going on.

    A sin? no. I don't care about religion.

    But it's self destructive. He's out marketing for partying while a highly contagious plague is killing thousands of people a day. He's a professional athlete, he knows how serious this virus is. He spent three months in a ****ing bubble. He just was kicked out of said bubble. I hope he's okay but this is a terrible look.

    Microcosm of America's split attitude towards the pandemic.

    Side 1) Better safe than sorry

    Side 2) YOLO

    No doubt.

    House is doing worse than YOLO though. He's publishing his careless disregard and in the mean time encouraging others to come join him as he participates in a super spread as he super spreads his wings whilst getting paid to do it.

    it really should go without saying that, when you can, please post proof of any TMZ-type news about the Houston Rockets players, or at least explain how you know the news you're posting.

    can you share what you're talking about ... like a link? I'm sure you're good at your word, but please inform us as best you can, so we can judge for ourselves.

    If he survives the FA period and makes it into the new season, he would be safe for couple months the least.

    Buy low, sell high.

    New coach, new approach.

    If the gloves don't fit, you must acquit.

    I'm not someone who makes stuff up, so for next time, just remember me.

    I don't really see the need to clarify that any more than I previously did. It's not gossip, it's fact.

    I'm more worried about his personal mental well being than him partying to be honest. This looks bad from an outsider's vantage point. He's gone through a lot and I want him to find happiness. I hope the Rockets can reach out to him. This behavior screams

    Thx for the link. That was easy, right? I wasn't doubting you.

    "Next time" i'll ask for a link again...it's called sharing -- literally. Let's not get defensive when ppl ask us to share links.

    And here's a more specific, better link to share ... complete with Facemasks. "Masks Required" and "Limited Capacity" :) ...just fwiw, for those who want to go




    and here's the venue's post saying "Masks Required" and "Limited Capacity"....and again, just fwiw, for those who want to go
