    Finally some positive on Howard. I hope the rockets and fans realize that it was Howard, not Harden, who lead this team to the WCF.

    i went to the game, and at first during the presentation i was like why is he being honored. But, he was a huge part of us going to the WCF so i stood up and cheered.

    It's was both. Remember, Dwight missed almost half the regular season and Harden mostly carried us. He's carried since Day 1, Fall '12.

    Harden's availability can't be denied. He's All-Time in that category. Better than MJ.. on par with Wilt, Kareem, The MAILwoMAN.... so far at least.

    Dwight also got injuried (early) in those same WCF.

    Dwight did a great job catching the lobs created by Harden getting double teamed.

    (For a little while atleast)

    Dwight showed some class by praising the Rockets in his post game interview and left it at that. Infact so far both parties have conducted themselves in the divorce well.

    If only the Dwight of his first year with us combined with the Harden of this year ... and if we're being super ideal, if we had Eric Gordon, then maybe we woulda seen something special. Sigh. That blazers series still haunts me a little bit.

    He genuinely cared about the community while he was here, and was a model citizen off the court. Regardless of how he left, anyone that gives to my city the way he did gets my respect.

    Really proud of the TC crowd. Houston seems to realize that some things are bigger than basketball.
