    Naw. I think they were actually trying.

    I think the tank came when DMO came back and the Rockets were left without a draft pick.

    Morey went to his excel charts and started doing benefit-cost analysis and came to the conclusion the playoffs weren't worth it.

    First time in a Morey season he tanked IMO and he only did it for a quarter of the season.

    oh boy.

    Rockets in position for 12th pick of draft. Another loss or 2 and Nuggets won't have to kick themselves for 3 wins, costing themselves pick.

    Now I'm starting to question when the Tank was called in. Was it when DMo came back and Rockets didn't have a pick OR was it when the Rockets lost to the Mas and had not chance moving to the 6th spot?

    Except for the fact that they played better after Dmo got back and Morey went out and got Beasley. Our role players all regressed. Dwight regressed as well. Harden was playing 1 on 4 on offense.

    Or maybe we didn't tank and the Rockets just suck.

    Dwight Howard reminds me of Kevin Willis.

    Ariza, Howard, and Smith refused to talk to media and left locker room early.

    Nope. A Tank job worthy of the movie Fury.

    JBB only played brewer 9 minutes. If he was truly trying to win the game, that would never happen.

    James Harden said it wasn't embarrassing but frustrating for team to be in this situation.

    Dwight Howard walked out of locker room and said "have no words for u boss." Dressed quickly tonight.

    Harden doesn't care, he's never embarrased. Look at the TO record.

    Nope, not embarrassing at all.

    Western Conference Finals(fluke run or not) to missing the playoffs and at best finishing .500. Nope, not embarrassing.

    Certainly not embarrassing for the self-proclaimed "best shooting guard" and "best center" to miss the playoffs. Not at all.

    I'm glad you aren't embarrassed.

    After all, I'm sure "it's just one season, we'll be fine, we'll be alright."

    Get on out and go hit the club.

    Lol at this being a tankjob. Hillarious effort to justify this disgrace. Tell me which tanking team plays their superstar 40+ minutes? Or instead of playing all their young players they put instead beasly and ariza?

    "It's tough, but we can't quit" said Howard "We have to overcome it and believe. We can't stop believing." ----it seems you mailed it in DH
