    This is the way. Lets draft our own players.

    WTF is wrong w/ people these days?

    We're talking about BEN SIMMONS coming here. He's a spoiled prick like any rich person.

    There's no opinion -- you made a false assumption I never got out, shows you're an ******* too. What, did I make the same assumptions of you?

    It's not wrong, we've seen many UFAs skip Houston. That's not a coincidence. I feel 100% secure betting on Houston not being able to land any superstar UFA for the foreseeable future.

    Put your money where your mouth is, bet on the tip char 20 dollars per superstar UFA that they're coming to Houston.

    I didn’t assume anything, I pointed out you are ignorant.

    As long as we have an owner that consistently complains about the cost of winning a championship... then we are not going to win or get superstars to come to Houston. Titles and winning is what makes a SuperStar tick. This is a 2-3 SuperStar league that is player empowered. It's just the way it is. Tillman just doesn't get it.

    You think if someone offered Tillman like 20% over market value he would sell?

    Not disputing any of that. Just saying it's not like James had stars lining up to come play with him

    Ok? Doesn’t change the fact that they all came to play with Harden even if some of them were via trade and not signing as a free agent.

    KD also wanted him in BK

    We don't need any players who don't want to be in Houston.

    We just named 3 players that wanted to play with him in houston in all his years in houston.
    Dwight also bought into the allure of Houston big the city of big men and how he would a chance to post up etc which he wasn't going to get with kobe

    Westbrook by all indications, even of he wanted to come to hoistom, didn't like it here bc of hardens partying which leads me to believe that he came here simply bc houston traded for him not bc he demanded to come play with harden

    that’s 3 guys in 8 years, and last time I checked, Houston isn’t exactly some hot destination that stars have been dying to go to

    Lol, same Dwight who wanted absolutely nothing to do with Houston before Harden arrived?

    Amid a report that stated the Houston Rockets are hoping to amass enough trade assets to make a deal with the Orlando Magic for Dwight Howard–even though Howard would only be in Houston for one season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2013 — a source with knowledge of Howard’s thinking said Monday that there was “not a chance” Howard would be persuaded to remain in Houston if traded there, and would leave next summer to sign elsewhere.

    Well, your belief is wrong. Let’s deal with facts.

    this is from Woj

    After Paul George's trade to the Clippers, Westbrook and Foucher worked with the Thunder to find an agreeable path forward on Westbrook's future with the franchise. With free agency effectively concluded, and Westbrook's list of preferred destinations extremely short, the timing made trade negotiations complicated.

    Still, the Thunder wanted to accommodate Westbrook's wishes as much as possible, with his first and foremost desire to reunite with Harden in Houston, while also finding a trade that fit OKC's objective of rebuilding.


    now KD wants to play with him too
