    Listening at the moment, but I'm not hearing any discussion about the politics that has entered this era of basketball.

    Kenny Wooten will be better than Jordan Bell.

    LOVE you guys.

    BTW - according to Wall it was only a partial tear on his Achilles......not a full rupture.....which makes a BIG BIG difference.

    Clutch, per Harden, this is an interesting way of going about winning back the fans. ;)

    jVG is both of your all time favorite Rocket coaches? Did you guys forget Rudy T?

    Sacrilidge..... ;)

    Also agree almost completely with you, hated the Westbrook trade - loved Morey......

    You guys could have talked about about how Morey got one over on Tillman by getting completely out of his contract with a non-compete not attached.

    Maybe Hakeem will talk to him about his experience and how it culminated in one of the greatest stretches of NBA play.

    It just the health issue with Wall. It so much better to have a healthy Wall than Westbrook. Wall can pass and shoot 3s.

    Russ cannot bring Houston to get a win without harden with a big lead. Cp3 and Wall can. That means Houston is now back to western finals level.

    Russ just shoots by himself with good statistics. Wall can get points and assists to bring whole team to win with more contributions

    hey i want it to work out with Wall, like any rockets fan. but i still thought Russ was playing at a very high level and that we should have gotten better compensation. Sure he sucked in the bubble coming off COVID and being injured, but he had a great season and actually tried to adjust his game to help the team.

    I lived in DC for 11 years and i've seen a lot of John Wall. He's a good player and if he can get back to playing the way he was in 2017, it's going to end up being a good trade. But just doubt that he's going to be back to that level. I think that's a big risk and we should have been better compensated for that risk.

    As far as his 3-pt shooting, he's a career 32% 3pt shooter. I found him super inconsistent. But he knows how to score, he can pass the ball, and he does play good defense. So he's a good player, but I would have needed more compensation given the risk.

    Yeah, he won some great games against LAL and Boston in regular season though.

    He will miss an open wide shot for 3, no need to guard and let him shoot in this area.

    Russ brings Washington to bottom, Cp3 brings Suns to the top. Luckily we get Wall.
