    Christian Wood is our best player, and he's definitely on the outside looking in, as far as considering for "all-star."

    Gonna be a while.

    Beard was a special one for the Rockets. He isn't very sophisticated to defend himself with PR, his moms his agent. But the guy never missed a chance to play. In a time when load managemetn was ok, he played heavy minutes, useage, Games all of it. He reinvented his game yearly, led the league in assists, points, whatever. To do that for several years strength in this toough league takes mental grit and desire to be great I don't care how nonchalant his attitude is or which strip club he went to just like it didn't matter if MJ was gambling all night, they played and practiced daily. The dude owned local businesses here, moved out his family, invested in the local soccer team, and had a restaurant opening...doesn't sound like someone who was scheming the whole time to get out of houston. That said , he isn't blameless, it isn't a binary option, but it doesn't make sense...that said hes gone and hes playing for brooklyn...so I 2nd him being off any banners

    I say we get some Timeless guys on there, Hakeem, Rudy, Vernon, of the current guys maybe Tate, KPJ, Wood. The frustration will be real for the rest of this year, but the rockets future is still bright.

    I think Kelly Olynek could be the best player in the trade for Victor Oladipo.

    Kelly Olynek fits in the offense seamlessly.
    Very Unselfish in his passing, always makes his teammates better.

    Always moves around on Offense and Defense. Rebounds Terrific.

    I thought the same thing.... I just imagine that the whole Harden deal cut deep into Clutch because he obviously loves the Rockets so much... so maybe he’s just been in a funk.

    Cant really complain when the guy does so much for free, if I was an nba player, a Rocket for example, I would give the guy a good 50k a year (pocket change to a star) just in good faith for all that he does. Hell I could blow that much on a weekend at the strip club.

    Thanks Clutch!
