    Yea, something like Ben Simons + Al Horford for Harden and Westbrook? Rockets can rebuild around Simons???

    Hell no.

    Now if the 6ers are playing the Celtics in the ECF I might root for them, that's about it. I'll casually root for them.

    Time for @Clutch to make a separate GARM for the Sixers so Rockets fans can celebrate vicariously through the Sixers and their GM.

    While the Rockets decide which terrible series of contracts they will take on to move Westbrook... the Sixers will be deciding what blockbuster to complete and compete for a title.

    Thanks Tilman. Appreciate it...

    Have fun with this next decade of Rockets basketball. I’m sure we’ll be way better than we were with Morey. Great things ahead!

    since 1994 I've only rooted for the rockets to win. I think this is the first year I will also root for morey to win.

    rockets will have priority. I want them to beat every team in the league. but this year I will also want the Sixers to beat everyone but the rockets. and it may stay that way while morey is there.

    now it will get tricky when James is eventually traded and I'll have to decide between him and morey for the #2 spot.

    They're definitely my second team. I'll always be a Houston fan first, obviously, but I liked Morey a lot. I hope they have a lot of success (except against the rockets). I'd love to see Morey get a title, so long as it's not against Houston. I feel the same way about Harden, wherever he goes I'll continue to root for him the same way. It will never surpass the rockets, but I'm a fan for sure.

    The 76ers have one of the most vile fanbases in the NBA.
    Definitely top 5 worst fans in the league.

    I love Morey but no way I would ever root or associate myself with such garbage fans.
    So now I will have to root against him.

    I'm right there with you. Entitled ****ing jerks. Just like Yankee and Lakers fans without the glamorous city. I hope the Rockets win the championship and I hope Morey fails in Philly. He can go solve real world problems like Hinkie after they fire him. (insert comic sans farewell note).

    I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE HOUSTON ROCKETS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE GRANTLAND-TITLED "DORK ELVIS" WINS ONE. you can take that for data.

    Is it the Houston Sixers? No? Then no.

    I wasn't a believer in what Morey was trying to build here anyways. I became sick and tired of the endless threes. I understand today's NBA involves the 3 ball unlike any gen.....but we were never going to win with their game plan....

    I couldn't care less about Phili. I'm just happy that's where he went versus a foe in the West. And better yet with the sixers, where I won't have to see or hear about him too much.....

    It's not like the guy brought championships to Houston. He did bring us Harden, what a steal that was....but morey ball was never going to work. And it was painful to watch.

    Is that a trick question?

    I think a great hire by Philly, and he'll get them over the hump. I'm rooting for the guy.

    If you didn't like the endless threes I've got some bad news for you about the Silas hire...he was reportedly the "architect" of the offense over in Dallas, which was the #1 offense in the history of the NBA, and they shot the second most 3s in the league (behind Houston), shooting 41 per 100 possessions compared to our 43 per 100. So I wouldn't expect any noticeable difference in the number of threes, assuming Silas' plan for the offense here is the same one he ran in Dallas.

    First Clutch has to delete all the LOFs left on the board

    Well, that won't work in Philly, so be interesting to see what he does. They are built as more of a traditional team.

    Depends, are the sizers owned by China? Plus it’s the East... maybe with a well-managed team and high-octane offense- at least you’ll probably be winning a bunch. You’ll be going up against KD, Vagiannis, Butler, Raptors and Celtics.
