    EGo, Mathews, Tate amounted to 9 wins approximately while KPJ hit a buzzer beater and stormed out of the building once.

    The 40 pt differential loss in Cleveland was the worst.

    One 7 game winning streak.

    Story of the season.

    Is it Crazy though?
    Cavs in
    2018 = 19 wins.
    2019= 19 wins
    2020= 22 wins
    They had three off seasons to mix and match.
    You can put Sengun into the Cavs line up next to Jarret and they'd be on the same track with crazy highlights from Sengun.
    Y'all panic to easily

    Lol, how cool it would be if the Rockets were to reward @Clutch with a ring for their next championship :cool:

    Cleveland had 3 top 5 picks in the last 3 drafts.

    The 2021 draft was the first draft the Rockets had a draft pick since the 2018 draft.

    Doesn't seem that crazy.

    It was bittersweet watching Sengun and Tate playing alongside Mobley...

    It's funny when people say Mobley is only performing better than Green because he's on a better team.

    The Cavs were a lottery team until they got Jarrett Allen (thanks to us) for free and then drafting Mobley.

    Also, watching Tate, Sengun and Mobley wrecking havoc defensively was something to behold.

    Both Mobley and Allen have been excellent, but let's not pretend the Cavs haven't had absurdly good playmaking. Garland (All-Star), Rubio (pre-injury) and Rondo have provided the Cavs w/ tremendous passing/leadership this year. Garland was a top five pick not all that long ago and his ascension has played a vital role in the Cavs success.

    If the Rockets had Jarrett Allen and Christian Wood

    Jarrett Allen maybe would've tanked his value on the Rockets, similar to Daniel Theis role.

    Rockets are stuck with Jarrett Allen Huge $80 million contract.

    Cleveland have real PG on their unlike the Rockets. Until Dennis Schroeder came onto the team.

    Christian Wood will be chirping coming off the bench.

    Rockets want a run and gun offense not a Half court offense.

    Why would the Rockets Draft Evan Mobley, Alperen Sengun at all.

    Those 2 will be in the G League or stay on the bench the whole year

    They still have Sexton who is a legit 19 ppg scorer as a trade chip.

    This is the kind of mentality that propels Rockets to worst defense in NBA and worst losing records in franchise history.

    The inability to see beyond the tip of their nose and compound one blundering move after another ad nauseum.

    Dude. The off the court ****, not the gameplay. Please stop trying to find reasons to be upset. I explicitly stated he can be a future star.

    I enjoyed it.

    Who would have thought that Maxey is such a goofball.

    Harden signed with Adidas in the summer of 2015. I’m sure his many playoff shortcomings that followed had nothing to do with him being viewed as “less favorable” and it’s all because he no longer wore Nikes.

    You are thinking small, same folks who used to speak highly of Harden while with Nike.. then started railing on him.

    Adidas NBA Jersey expired 2016-2017 Nike signs 8 year deal
    Harden leaves Nike and goes to Adidas and gets robbed of MVP 2015-2016 and 2016-2017, starts getting hammered by certain reporters / tv personalities with ties to Nike who once was all over how great he was

    end of day it’s business
