    Well we have a new person to blame now for Jalen Green not being extension worthy…now it’s Udoka, Fred and Brooks. They’re keeping him down. Otherwise he’d be totally awesome and show everyone…I promise!!

    I'm not angry with the loss. Jalen showed no improvements in his skills, which is what worries me.

    Trying to figure out how Jabari starts off hot and then doesn't score again for like...half a game. Was like this last year as well.

    I’m a Jalen fan and I have to say this guy seriously needs to check himself at this moment.

    well I’ll tell you , Jabari is a second round tier level nba player. He just doesn’t have it.

    Tari should start.

    You can go craaayzay analyzing things. Bogus defensive 3 seconds on Alpi, which led to Ime getting a T, Rockets win 104 to 103. And Dillon was fouled hard on the breakaway lay up. It still took Emo boy launching a three with his eyes closed. And what's up with that. I thought the whole purpose of taking Alpi out, reasonable, in the last shots is to have fast mother f'ers that won't get caught out of position? Twice the shooter has caught the ball in rhythm.

    Losing to Silver's darlings both on miracle 3s on the road isn't the worst thing in the world. These were schedule losses. Especially considering both teams were desperate to win and the NBA is desperate to keep them relevant.

    Lakers had a solid game plan defensively. They got the Rockets out of sorts. Got Sengun into foul trouble and got Jalen off his rhythm. There's a reason we were turning it over and pressing a lot. Learn from it and move on.

    Udoka assuming the refs weren't gonna give lebron free throws anyway, they were bc they're trash. I'm fine with him going for the steal. Honestly, udoka should've known lebron was getting free throws regardless and went for the 3 to win bc atleast the rockets have a chance to win or lose on their own terms. It's gonna be the same tomorrow night. These refs are a ****ing joke.

    If Jalen could have put up 15 pts instead of pathetic 9 pts, Lebron is crying now in bathroom.

    Ya’ll gotta stop pretending we’re losing because of officiating.

    Some of y’all are confusing coming to the realization that Green is not who we wanted him to be with being disappointed with the team.

    Ime is a godsend and the team is heading in a great direction. This loss or the clippers loss don’t even hurt. Rockets are in a great spot. But Part of reaching that next level though is figuring out what parts work and which parts don’t.

    It’s early in the season, but right now I’d bet against Jalen being one of those working parts in the role he is currently in. He just doesn’t appear to be good enough. He’s got some holes in his game that I don’t think just more experience or time will help.

    that was a horrible decision by Brooks…he didn’t even give us a chance to even try to play good defense on that last possession by giving Lebron a runway to the rim for no reason

    The best teams always blame officials and calls for losses. I’m sure there’s absolutely nothing the Rockets could have done to overcome this massive deficit afforded to the Lakers solely by the calls from officials.

    Oh you know... you always have a scapegoat. Jabari, Jalen...why don't you tell Ime what he's doing wrong. He needs to know right away that Jalen can't play. Maybe he knows that the smiling imbecile who coached these guys before he got there was a joke and he's a year or two behind on what these players should already know.
