    There is a direct correlation between how fast he talks and how well he plays. Keep that man hopped up and motivated.

    There's still a lot of room for improvement and we still won. I feel like Wood and Porter don't get the same respect as stars on calls. They do get hacked a lot on drives and for some reason things are rarely called

    I don't understand what you all want from me. When I went Capela Only Fan you guys were like, "Don't but that voodoo on Clint!" and so I went Hartenstein Only Fan. This year you wanted me to go Tillman only fan so that I could put the voodoo on him. But now, now you want me to put my voodoo on Rockets Franchise Player Kelly Olynyk??!?!?!? DEFEND YOURSELF

    After just a handful of games, I am baffled why Miami would want to replace Olynyk with Oladipo, given they are trying to win now and both players are free agents after the season.

    Is it just me or does anyone else notice that Christian wood doesn't like kevin porter? I've never seen them have a positive interaction lol

    now see, here I was interpreting your motivation all wrong. I thought you picked the underdog player we all deep down want to succeed. Instead you're telling me your choice reflects some type of hex you imagine putting on your player.

    AND DON'T COME BACK

    Win is a win. It helps their development .. the last thing you want to do is start a rebuild with a losing culture. It’s a positive

    I can understand Porter with his off court history and age being 20, refs probabaly don't respect him as much. With Wood, I think it's partially because he can get pushed around so easily refs just assume it's just someone out muscling him.

    Wood knows who and what Porter is. Wood also knows who and what he is. I like that Porter doesn’t look for teammate approval.

    Team is sneaky good and is going to win quite a few games now if Wall stays healthy. But that’s a big if. We won the Miami trade and they will regret it soon when they see Oladipo doesn’t move the needle. Losing Olynyk in the process . He’s the real deal. Glue guy as well those are hard to find.

    I know this could not happen but could you imagine harden with this team? Maybe we could have gotten gordon for wall. All these cutters and finishers. Tate, kpj, Martin, olynyk, wood. I know we got olynyk for harden essentially so it's not possible but just imagine what he could have done.
