    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Les fires Morey or forces him to make a trade to save his job. Bickerstaff was given the rest of the season, but starting 1-3 is not a good sign and he might as well be axed too.

    Harden has been pretty good for the most part, Dwight has been meh to decent, and Capela has raised his level of play from last year and has a bright future, but the rest of the team is atrocious. Tjones had a few good games, but that's it. Thornton was hot during our 4 game win streak, but that's it. Lawson has been a dumpster fire. JET, Brewer, and Ariza can't make open three pointers, so they might as well not even play.

    Losing to the winless Sixers at HOME, would be the nail in the coffin for 2015-16, even though it's not even December yet.

    And yes, things COULD still eventually turn around and we could slip into the playoffs, but do you really want to be an 7 or 8 seed and get swept by the Warriors or Spurs in the 1st round?

    I say go full tank mode, and pray for the 1st pick to get Ben Simmons.

    2016 lineup?

    PG - ???
    SG - Harden/KJ
    SF - Durant/???
    PF - Simmons/DMo
    C - Dwight/Capela

    Not over yet. They will be 5-11. After all the 2004-5 team started 5-11 and won 51 games so therefore....ah the hell with it. If they lose to philly its over.

    Like it or not this team is going to finish with 40ish wins guaranteed. NBA purgatory right there.

    The funny part is that the Sixers have been close enough to be in position to win their last few games, they are going to put up a fight and if we lose that would be it for me, I'd check out.

    Kek, what's the use of winning a game against the Sixers, only to lose the next ones.

    This.

    The season has been over. The rockets are not going to come anywhere close to what their goal was. I accepted that a while ago.

    I thought they could at least make the season interesting to watch though. Turns out I won't even be watching them nearly as much.

    Paying the owner by gaining entry to boo will turn things around immediately. Let us all go to the game and boo the hell out of this Rockets squad. That will make em shoot better and give them that pep they need to wake up from this shooting coma. Genius. Hell, let us PAY to get into the game to wear paper bags over our heads. We could get on ESPN!

    Its beyond embarrassing that we wouldn't even be shocked if they lose. They don't know what the heck they are doing out there. Seasons over. Morey tried got Dwight. Operation success but the team died. We have no identity and McHale was a band aid. Wouldn't even be surprised if Alexander cleaned house by allstar break.
