    Roster management is also a problem so far IMO.

    Nwaba is a liability offensively - he shouldn't be starting. Silas needs to keep playing with the roster (i'd insert Tate or McLemore) and find a guy who can contribute consistently otherwise you may need to bring EG back to the starting 5.

    LOL

    The question was not directed at you.

    Why does OP struggle with something so simple as quoting another poster without f'ing it up?

    The problem is the whole team. You got a rookie head coach. Other than Harden/Tucker/Gordon/House/McLemore the rest of the team are new. Wall, Cousins, Nwaba return from injured. Tate is rookie. Wood is good on offense but can't defend in the low post.

    Problem is we are missing shots, not running back on defense and not boxing out. Everyone is to blame. There was some really poor effort during much of that game. When we turned it over it was like we gave up on the defensive end. Wood and whoever else is anywhere near the paint needs to secure the rebound. We can’t be looking for fast outlets until we’ve improved our rebounding.

    1) The problem was KD joining GSW...
    2) CP3 hammy
    3) The belief that Harden can turn water into wine every damn year with limited players around him
    4) Harden style of play doesn't fit ,whatever the hell this is, that we're implementing
    5) Harden ain't that dude anymore..
    6) Harden realists are called haters
    7) Harden nut-huggers won't accept reality...

    This summary is amazingly similar comparing to the Trump era.

    1. The problem was Russia interferes.
    2. Hillary's email.
    3. The belief that Trump can MAGA by some idiots - almost half of this country.
    4. Trump basically have no forking clue how to run a country, and he is also surrounding with morons like Lidsey Graham and Ted Cruz.
    5. Then Covid also happened.
    6. Anyone against Trump being called radical lefts.
    7. Trump nut-huggers won't accept the reality

    I think the biggest problem is he was the main focal point threw out the decade of last. Its time to move on, he is no franchise player. Its time to hit the reset button. His peak was with CP3, and that story is old news. He could go to any other team and put up the same stats, but still stars that are brought over to pair with him want to peace out. (Explain that)

    He is stat padder, that makes you think he is really doing things. But fades away in the 4th quarter or when big shots are need to be taken. Harden cant play a lick of defense either. You need to get what you can get for him and bring in Elite defenders who can also find ways to score in transition.

    Its new decade and the biggest problem is the rockets need hit the reset button
