    A lot of people have been saying we have the talent but no heart.

    Well I don't think we have the talent either. No one knows how to do anything on offense or defense, nobody. Our point guard can't create, our shooting guard doesn't know how to get open, our small forwards can't do anything except Ariza on defense, our power forward can't rebound, our center, well Capela is okay. To add to that, our coach is just lol.

    I hope this series gives management motivation to completely assemble a new team and a new coaching staff.

    at the beginning of the season, people were saying this team has the talent to compete for top 3 in the west.

    Where are they?

    yea blow it up and let Dwight, dmo, and jones go. trade Brewer and then actually find 3 point shooters and have a coach with a damn system. we play so sloppy and don't know what to do with no accountability

    I thought we'd win 60 games.

    I was wrong. I've never been so unhappy as a Rockets fan. This is the worst.

    Get rid of everyone, seriously.

    At the beginning, they would be right. A team of Lawson / Harden / Ariza / TJ / Howard...

    At that time, could you really say that starting lineup was destined for failure?

    Well, duh. We have to blow this up, completely.

    Yao and McGrady had a slim chance, but injuries closed their window.

    From their corpses, Maurie miraculously got us two major players who each had issues, and we rolled the dice, and yep, it didn't work out. Each of them has some sort of mental issue.

    It's going to be ugly, but it's time to start from scratch. To me, that includes considering trading Harden. Even though everyone's beating up on him, he's still worth more than when we traded for him.

    We need a youth movement now. Keep Capella and that's about it.

    What sucks is im not really sure what to look forward to. Harden is a great player... But he's Melo. You could win with him but it'll take a hell of a team around him, and we don't have ****.

    Keep Harden, Dmo and Bev. Everyone else can be had.

    Shaun Livingston would be our 2nd best player. On the Warriors he's their 7th or 8th best. What does that tell you?

    I'm not in the trade Harden camp yet, but I could be persuaded. Basketball smarts and skill is a hard quality to find. Effort and discipline can be improved with the right coach who will hold his players accountable. So while I don't think Harden is playing worth his contract this year, he can get there.

    I agree that Capella can be special. Everyone else is a dime a dozen player. Dwight just has low bball IQ and that will never change...while he'll continue to decline physically.

    It actually baffles me how clueless everyone on this team is. I guess his can be contributed to coaching, but still, the most basic things are just not done. We look like a pick up team on offense.

    To be honest what i see is:

    - no leadership
    - no talent (Harden and a bunch of low iq players who can't score, shot, pass...well, there's D.Mo, but he's still far from 100% i guess)
    - no chemistry

    So yeah, we need to move on and rebuild this team changing a lot of parts.

    One other attribute we need for our players is basketball IQ. We have so many mental midgets on our team.

    This team has talent.

    No one predicted we would lose our talents all at the same time while also losing our coach.

    Real life space jam happening before our eyes. Barkley ate our lunch.

    I do expect Morey to make some extremely drastic moves as us nerds don't take kindly to criticism.

    Murphy wanted to keep Scott Machado instead over the protest of coaches. Veterans don't matter though
