    I am not a fan of Wall.
    Would not be mad if his contract was gone.
    I mean seriously there is nothing for him here.

    Same for Ego and Tucker
    They deserve a chance to win.

    What is the over/under that Wall admits that he was trash and prime reason for loss tonight?

    Wood ain’t been a superstar for a even a year yet. He’s 25 and been a journeyman since he came into the league.

    He’ll be fine just putting up stats for 1 year and making his first big money. Stop being overly dramatic.

    He's not a superstar, not even an all-star

    At this point, the correct title for Wood is borderline all-star, a top MIP candidate.

    We won so many games during the Harden era, we won more games than we could ever imagined. But we were always the freaking GS punching bag... We lost to them over and over and over and now its the Lakers... All these stupid ass teams have literally no shot. At some point you have to at least consider the possibilities that winning means nothing if you already know what the outcome is going to be at the end of the season. For many years we did have a legitimate chance, the window closed. It makes not difference now with or without Harden. And Harden knew that, so he joined the Nets. You do realize the only chance of winning it all for us is that three superstars in their prime decide to team up here right?

    If all you care about is winning regular season games then good news, The Rockets will get back to that soon enough. And yeah, look at the team. Its a mess right now, the only bright spot is Wood and the rest are pretty much rookies or washed ex stars.... Relax, this year is over anyways.... Lower your expectations....

    This is our GM's masterplan. Losing to bulls so they have a better record with a chance of pushing miami out of playoffs. Wizards also won which moves us above them in the tank standing.

    Our target for the next match is to stop the cavs 10 game losing streak and continue ours! All hail Stone!

    I remembered when we won against bulls in the preseason and we were told not to get carried away as it was "only" the bulls.

    You do you, I'll do me.

    You keep lowering your expectations and soon all you'll have is a loser mentality.

    Not ready to re-live 15 seasons and ZERO playoff wins.

    Would rather watch KPJ, KMJ and Brooks play, they can't do worse than PJ, Mclemore and House...

    GM is a loser?

    Suspected it but hoped it wasn't true.

    Wall and Dipo cannot run this offense it seems.

    How good was it watching John Wall throw a lazy pass right into the Bulls defender, then watch as they score as a result then immediately turn around and start yelling at his teammates.

    Someone should tell this clown that jackass attitude is only reserved for superstars who can carry a team to wins.

    I mean I'm happy for the guy he's not suffering an injury. I just don't like the fact he's healthy in a Rockets uniform.

    Nothing about his play translates to winning.

    Nothing about his play translates to being a leader. I'm pretty sure all those rose coloured glasses wearing homers have now had it painfully sink in this guy is just as pathetic attitude-wise as Harden was. Except his talent to make it bearable isn't in the same stratosphere.

    Can you believe we're paying him for another two seasons until teams won't hang up the phone laughing if we offer him in a trade. #justTilmanthings
