Is it fishy Rich Paul is advising both Wall and Simmons to sit out until traded?

    LMFAO!!!!

    Now you're not just talking about stuff you are clueless about you're also talking out of both sides of your mouth.

    Predictable as always.

    Showing your ass again.

    John wall has been crap forever now. Simmons has problems but wall is a negative contract. Anyone thinking that wall can be traded for Simmons without at least 2-4 FRPs is smoking dope.
    Sorry I live the rockets but wall does not contribute to a winning team and is grossly overpaid. Nets at least came close against bucks with Simmons going batshit choker. If his head is on right they’d be better; that team only has one real superstar but Simmons is good is you get him on the right team. For example, him with 2 of the nets stars would be amazing (not as good as all three nets stars though, unless you swap him for Irving). I think Simmons with a healthy Durant and harden would be unbelievable. Simmons just needs the right team. Wall doesn’t have a right team bc he’s always injured, thinks he’s better than he is and is overpaid. Sorry just not a fan of wall after he started getting injured all the time.

    Morey should pull a McHale and send Ben Simmons to the Rockets for Wall.

    Rockets can then fully commit to small ball and Ben Simmons can never take another jumper in his life because he'll be playing center.

    Simmons the person seems to never want to be better. Reports say his work ethic lacks. Trading him to a place that changes his position where he will be physically challenged will make do what. Make him QUIT all together or become a different player. Is he willing or is Ben just Ben and we get a big contract with a maybe.

    I mean, I was actually right. You were highly critical of Stone for not getting Simmons. You actually said Simmons is a cornerstone player. You were also critical of Silas in a year we were clearly tanking. You're basketball takes end up horribly wrong

    Come on man. There is a obvious OBVIOUS difference between paying the Superman to a player and being good enough to win a championship (Simmons is NOT that player) and someone that is good enough to make a team like the Rockets last year not have the worst record in the league. Complete false equivalency. This team statistically should have a chance to be better in five years 99% chance now compared to the high chance of mediocrity if Simmons were here. I am certain of that.

    Making up stats now?

    Hakeemthehate is notorious for slandering the Rockets WHEN THEY WERE WINNING.

    He doesn't care about Rockets success, it's all about his agenda - being right is his passion.

    Anyone that believes let alone INSISTS that Dipo is a better player than Simmons is beyond r****ded.

    And hakeemthehate claims to be a Stone fan, but watch how fast he turns to condemn this move simply to lick his own arse if this happens.

    This Dammarell guy is all over Cavs TL but how legit is he, especially on Rockets stuff?

    Hilarious if true.

    Man you guys are just getting your hopes up. They can have Buddy for Simmons whenever they want and that alone would be better than Wall.

    I smoke lots of dope and I still do not see that trade going down unless we attach 2-4 draft picks. Puff, Puff and Pass Wall the hell out of H-town.

    Oh no, John Wall, please do not sit. If you sit we have to play our young guys giving them time to develop. That would be the worst....

    Not a winning strategy for him

    I am all for him telling Wall to stay away the best thing that could happen to our young guards is to not learn to be a loser like Wall.

    Again, totally fine giving up 3 egregiously protected picks to Phili (TOP 10 protected through 2025)

    Think about the fact the LBJ/Durant might be retired and other stars on the tail end of their careers. Rockets on the rise and Daryl picking around 22-27 every year. Love it!

    It’s a damn shame that Wall was injured again last year. Otherwise, I think Philly would be a lot more likely to do this trade.

    The same Buddy in Luke Walton's doghouse?

    Hell, Eric Gordon is better than Buddy Hield, especially when the games matter. (Has Buddy ever been in a game that mattered?)

    Health is about the only thing he has in his favor.
