    You think the value would still be there for a guy with a back injury?

    When you consider Durant, Curry, Lebron.

    Next to them Harden is also trash.

    Not a lie, or even an exaggeration, last season.

    Rockets will now have 44.5m in cap room, and we could easily dump other players to get up to 50m.

    Then what? Who do you think wants to play with Harden. We've seen, it wont be a pg. The limited bigs are available, but who wants them? Almost every team in the league will have alot of cap room. It's not like the rockets have won anything.

    The extent of his delusion is in my sig.




    And I completely agree, the whole notion that cap flexibility will be a ++++++ down the line is if you have positioned yourself to be an attractive destination. I mean, it gives you more of an option to outbid and overpay, but the very concept of saving money for the cap counters that philosophy.

    Rockets are better than any team with cap room.

    You don't believe that do you? Who are they better than when everyone and their mama will have cap room next year? Why would KD come to Houston when his roster in OKC is better? Any other names you want or wish for?

    Yes, all of them.

    You want to be the best team , you need the best players.

    Idk they players did vote him MVP and thought he deserved it, so I bet at least one star would want to play with him.

    If we don't get Durant I could see harden trying to get Demar Derozen also(I saw harden post Durant fiba that they've been friends forever and called him a Day1)

    I could also honestly see Westbrook/harden/Durant also all bouncing to the lakers
