    Idk why we keep listening to this bruh bruh kid. He literally probably a cousin of someone in front office and says what he hears ok. That might be true. But being a 3rd person hearing things 80% of the time nets u the wrong info. Remember how everyone was like Melo (the first time on the knicks) said he was coming thru trade every week. Yeah he was coming but at the end of the day the front offices from both sides only know. We dragged the Melo trade out for the long time and were willing to take it into training camp. It wasn’t until Melo forced a deadline foe a trade that he got traded. A coaching hire will probably be the same for the rockets. They won’t commit to JVG, or Silas or last option John Lucas unless they have all their clauses locked down. These coaches I can guarantee will try to work a lot of **** into their contract for example incase of a mid season firing. JVG not knowing if we will contend this and next year. Makes me sure there’s a lot of things we will need to add to his contract maybe an opt out clause after a year? Who knows. I can’t imagine Lucas being on a longer than 1 or 2 year contract. Tilman is probably offering him 1 or 2 years when he wants 4-5 years. And with Silas he probably wants a long term contract. So I think this is a 3 way negotiation about job safety and money

    So everyone is mad that Brabra wants likes for his scoops instead of bucks? He has been more accurate than the "insiders" on ClutchFans, all of whom have conveniently disappeared during all of this.

    He has turned his life around and that is great but I've never quite got over the fact that he single-handedly destroyed a Rocket team that was potentially a team for the ages.

    25 years without a Finals appearance guys. 25 seasons straight without even a Finals appearance.

    TwentyFive seasons and everyone here still gets all wound up about hoping to see the Rockets win a Championship. FAR too much energy and emotion poured into an organization that pays you nothing and gives you nothing.

    But that’s fandom—one of the most irrational things in life. Some fans wait decades and die without ever seeing a championship from their team like Cubs fans and Red Sox fans before the turn of the century. Some fans think their dynasty would never end after a third or fourth championship and haven’t sniffed a championship game in almost 3 decades like the Cowboys.

    This dude continues to out himself as a bigger and bigger loser. So sad to see someone has nothing going on in life that they have to be a clout chasing Tekashi wannabe

    Yeah I do and watched him play.

    I thought you were talking about someone but I still don't know why you think he single handedly destroyed a team for the ages?

    We had the core of a great team with Lucas, Lloyd, Wiggins, Ralph, Hakeem and others.

    Start here:

    The Greatest Team That Never Was

    Granted, John didn't do it single-handedly , he had a lot of help.

    Let's just say that cocaine was a helluva drug...

    Edit: I would prefer this side discussion move out of this particular thread. The thread doesn't deserve this much attention.

    We were fine without John. Just not wiggins and sweet lew. That being said, it was sampson's knee that was the end of it all.

    True, but specifically, that Rocket team was gutted by the loss of Lucas, Wiggins, and Lloyd.
