    You realize there's at least 6 teams who could win 50+ games. While, every team after 6 are with in 3 games of each other and are pretty evenly match, talent wise.

    This is with teams, like the Spurs, Trailblazers, Kings, and Thunder. Even, the Pelicans with a healthy Zion could be good.

    There's nothing easy with the West. Now, if we were in the East, it's be different.

    It's November still.

    Too early to be that aggravated. Last season was major proof of what panicking too early in the season looks like.

    There was a time when people would turn their anger and frustration into something funny. Now it's just the same bitter, humorless rants rehashed over and over.

    I repeat.

    No team has ever come out of the Western conference as a 6th seed and won a championship.

    to be fair, last season cutting melo was an easy/obvious solution. unfortunately, you can't do that with westbrick. the rockets are pretty much stuck with him

    Being facetious doesn't work too well on the internet.

    Highly unlikely.

    They will have the #1 pick.

    We will be without a pick.

    Don’t you get it man—were just not having fun. A lot of apologists over here. Stupid impulsive trade (Murray wasn’t on board with) isn’t really panning our. I’m sorry some of us are frustrated when we called this, even @Clutch said so and he’s been writing about the rockets for over 2 decades now.

    With regards to how people react to you and your posts specifically, your GARM posts have been so relentlessly and consistently negative over the past 10 years that regardless of how valid your points are, most people familiar with your schtick are just tired of it.

    True.

    It may not be as easy as cutting X player this season. But it could just mean being a bit more patient and waiting for X player to become available and either sign or trade for X player.

    Morey has always been active throughout the season and up to the trade deadline, just because some of these past years no significant trades were made didn't mean we didn't upgrade the roster via FA and buyouts. Let's hope we don't have to wait till then to make those upgrades.
