    What an absolutely pathetic display... All that off season hype, new coach, high picks & FA signings only to look like stepped on dog ****. wow a 40 pt ass whooping on opening night by a borderline playoff team. Jalen & Jabari looked pathetic, it's just 1 game but damn what a pathetic performance.

    And somehow we decided that nothing was enough to stop tanking

    Honestly I can't see a team that we should be favoured against. Maybe Washington? Worst record once again coming to Houston.

    He will be held accountable this year. I will give him some time to adjust - because he has been in Club Med for the last few years with Porter/Silas/Stone.

    He will have to tangibly help the team win or he will play less and eventually be benched and then an afterthought.

    I’ll give him half a season to see if he adjusts - he doesn’t know how to win, doesn’t know how to sacrifice for his teammates and how to push himself.

    I do too but unless the Magic are a playoff team this year we are bad bad again. Actually I dont know that we've ever looked this bad even under Silas and thats saying a lot, I hated SIlas. I hope its just growing pains.

    Lost every quarter. This is the bad part though. We were outrebounded by 25. They nearly doubled us up on rebounds. That's just a **** effort folks. That can't be tolerated.

    We know draft pick is always a gambling. Someone win someone lose. It is clearly that we get nothing in the gambling.

    The funny thing about it is they actually played hard, they just suck.

    The sad truth is Houston is 2 years behind Magic, 3 years behind Thunder and that is nicely put.

    Keep winning Preseasons....and Summer Leagues.

    Everyone took the offseason so lightly. Our first round picks got entitled to playing time.
