    Just came back from Toyota Center and with almost half the fans wearing GSW jerseys and majority of them will agree on this : thank God the Rockets had FVV tonight to secure us a win.

    Horrible shot selections, no team chemistry and just terrible overall on both ends of the floor.

    When No. 4 and No. 1 will get the ball on their hands, the Rockets are having much better chance in the whole game.

    Spending 130 mils on a guy like this is not looking good at all for our GM and management.

    This was the worst game I’ve seen him play as a Rocket. I was really surprised at his poor decision making but I still think this is an overreaction.

    Only 2 years are guaranteed. Next year he's an expiring 43 mill dollar contract

    I was sitting near the basket and saw him spent more time just standing at the conner the whole game, even more than the time when Harden was very fat.

    Freaking unbelievable.

    Harden would’ve been a much better and more impactful signing

    It really is hard not to question the basketball IQ of some members of Clutchfans when things like this get thrown around.

    And then hearing people actually think KPJ would be better.

    I wish people would understand basketball is an iceberg.

    The box score is what you see.

    Everything else isn't what you see.

    Goodness gracious me.

    Kevin Porter Jr would be better. See you in 17 days when I finally pick myself up off the floor from laughing.

    If that's what you're saying - it's time to stop talking.

    Is it really only one game or is it three in a row this season in combination with the last 3 years of suckitude?

    This the same FVV that went 10/20 with a 24/8/12 against the Spurs in his 2nd game with the team?

    KPj hit 12 assists exactly two times the entirety of last year. The difference in PG play is *staggering*. This teams has some issues but FVV isn't one of them.

    He’s already the best best acquisition we’ve made in the last 4 yrs.
