    I would send Irving to another team for more picks/players.

    Talented but a cancer.

    Is Scoop ever right? I don't believe so, I guess he could get lucky every once in a while.

    I don't like the narrative that's forming here, but man, we've seen this happened so many times in the past with so many other players. You start hearing stuff here and there, and finally it blows up.

    I'll be in denial since I am a huge Harden fan and ultimately if he goes, I'll be stuck having to root for a shitty Rockets team (which I will root for). I dislike Tilman Fertitta and I truly hope some of the individuals on this board that are season ticket holders show him the finger when renewal time comes again. Part of being a fan has to be protesting bullshit like this as well, right? Personally, I won't shut up and listen, so Tilman go **** himself.

    Kyrie has never played a full season in his entire career, I'm not a fan of going after broken players.

    If the Rockets trade Harden, they'll get destroyed in the trade worse than OKC did. If they trade Harden to the Nets, no matter who they get back from them, it'll be the worst trade in NBA history.

    let's trade Harden to 76ers for Ben Simmons and 2 first round picks.
    trade Russ to Timberwolves for all their 1st round picks
    hit that reset button

    Harden wants the Sixers, not the Nets. The play is to "force" his way to the Nets with that terrible package and then "settle" for the Sixers with Ben Simmons.

    Morey and Harden playing 4D chess while Tilman yells at interns to shut up and listen.

    Maybe Harden is using Brooklyn as leverage to get to Philly.

    Do players want out because of the election? Ownership being supporters of Trump and in a red state.

    The Texans firing their PR VP over tweeting support for Biden could be an insight into the environment they are in or feeling?

    On the other hand, the man sure knows how to put his personal stamp on a new business acquisition.

    I just love how people act like they really know. Assume, well you know what we use to say about that word. "Tilman is cheap, he's meddling, won't let Morey do his job, he's the reason Morey left, the reason Harden want out, reason Westbrook want out" etc...
    What we do know is 13 yrs and we won zilch. A bunch of games with nothing to show. Not even a Conference Championship.
    Not saying Tilman is void of any wrong doing, but there's more blame to go around for more than just 2 yrs. Please point out all involved shortcomings.

    Been Youtubing Harden to Nets and you know what, there isn't one guy that thinks Harden to the Nets is a good fit. Not one guy who doesn't think there isnt enough ball for Harden & Kyrie, not to mention Durant.

    I am not even sure I believe Harden wants to go there (dont trust media), but if he does want out of Houston, a team where he fits better would make more sense (Philly?).

    Tilman Fertitta on the trade: "My basketball ops got maybe a little weak at the end, and I just said, ‘We’re doing this. We are going to make the change. We’re going to go after it and roll the dice. We’re going to find that 5 percent.’ The one thing I believe you do in business, and you do in basketball, is you never sit still. You always keep it exciting. Not only is it exciting that we’re a better team, but it’s exciting for the fans. I owe it to them to give them the best opportunity to win a championship every year.

    "There’s a chemistry I think with James and Russell that is going to shock people. Remember, Chris is 34, they’re 30. In basketball years, that’s a lot of years. That’s not like … in business. They have totally different classes, totally different groups of guys.Remember, Chris is more with the LeBron group, and the Carmelo group. And James is the Russell group."

    There's no probably, there's most definitely though. The media is twisting and turning every hour.

    I feel bad for you guys that are still holding on tightly for the Rockets.

    There's only one competent franchise left in this city, I've already made my peace with that. I'll still keep up with and root for the Rockets and Texans, but the emotional investment just isn't there anymore. Even if this rumor is overblown and Harden sticks around it won't matter.
