    No lmao Griffin is probably worse than Westbrook. A big man with knee problems is far worse than a guard with knee problems

    Right now they plan to go with Harden/Westbrook. They can be swayed otherwise but the market isn’t paying what the Rockets want. I don’t think Blake Griffin is what they have in mind.

    Is he actually healthy now or is he going to play 14 games before his knees explode, like always?

    I'm willing to give another year to Harden and Westbrook with a skilled 5, legit role players and a new coaching staff. Hopefully they unlock the best out of Westbrook. Blake Griffin, on the other hand, is only worth it at a much much lower salary than he is currently making. If he is on this team instead of Westbrook we cease to have any chance to contend. Plus he will get hurt 20 games into the season, with an injury he won't come back from until next year.

    of course I wish this would happen.
    Instead of the likes of Wall the worst contract in the league.
    Griffin is actually healthy now, and his contract much smaller. The Rockets would have to add a 1st at least to make it happen.

    But not sure we can even afford to give away picks.

    I understand, but I think if they do that with Christian Wood around things will be different.

    No they won’t they will pack the paint double the ball and let Westbrook brick the ball.

    You might be right, but I believe Westbrook was improperly used and was hurt. We'll see if I'm wrong. Ultimately, Blake Griffin is hurt waaaay more and his skill set has severely diminished. I'm not opposed to trading Westbrook, I'm opposed to trading him for Blake Griffin.

    Westbrook is declining fast and only gets by on hustle, in the playoffs everyone hustles and he struggles and is too proud to change.

    We need him gone.

    Pass. Westbrook was MVP caliber not too long ago. Griffin has been irrelevant for awhile now.

    Talent matters. Harden with wood/griffin as his number 2 and a bunch of one dimensional role players is a recipe for first round exits
