    You realize you're literally as bad as the "Homers" you're talking about. You are here only when things are going rough.

    funny that the texans are playing better than the Rockets

    Rockets led by our great leader Jim Harden just gives up at any sign of hardship.

    I watched the Mavs series and even when Luka lost his running mate, he did not give up and played hard every game. Idk why Harden's mentality is to just give up so easily year in and out.

    We need to take a laker out

    NBA took house away from us , we need to fight for ourselves

    Im wishing injury on all Lakers players . I'd love if NBA sets up this LAL-LAc series and lebron blows out his acl vs us , their ratings can suck my dick. I dont know why im bothering to watch this rigged ass sport , nothing else to do right now and i dont care for football.

    Agreed! Blow it up and get picks like crazy. At the very worst, create cap space and sign long/big/young talent!

    This is the kind of game, barring a miracle, that blows it up. Basically the entire playoffs have been a bust. We sucked against an OKC team that we should have swept, and we quit this series when the system cracked.

    Honestly, if we were to get a top 5 pick and a first rounder next year for Harden at this point I'd even do it.

    Nothing against Harden though, all time great Rocket, it's just we're stuck with this core now and it's clearly not doing anything. Had we at least kept Clint then maybe we could retool around Harden but...

    We're not getting back much for Russ, not enough for Harden to win.

    We're stuck and I'm seriously doubting Harden's heart. Especially after watching Lowry the past series take the Celtics to 7.

    I hope Harden proves me wrong but I'm on the ledge tonight, this effort from the team is pathetic.

    Its time to rebuild. Harden cannot be the best player on a championship team. He gives up in ways that you cannot get behind him. Giannis has no skills but I have never seen anyone give up like Harden does. It is actually disgraceful but I dont think he really cares at this point. CP3 challenged him, and he asked them to ship him or leaves. Its time blow it up and get solid picks while he is still an all star.
