    I'll enjoy it and support the team unlike the Texans. Rockets management at least has a pulse and a vision.

    Furthermore, this rebuild "feels" different and I think its best we stay in the moment, enjoy this Rockets movement... could be a great one.

    They have a potential super star rookie and a core of young, potential talent around him. They will lose a ton of games this year, but its worth it to watch for the flashes of potential. There will be games where Green posterizes some big time player or one of the other young guys puts up 40 in win.

    Owner is not worth supporting. Cant reward incompetence and ever expect change.

    Ummm you don't feel the Rockets were dodging the luxury tax every year of Hardens
    final 4 years......Harden then goes to a team with a team salary payroll of $164.5 million?

    Morey retired to be with family, only to turnaround and go to a team with a team salary
    payroll of about $148 million?

    Interesting. Just a coincidence

    I don't care what anybody else does, but personally I'm looking forward to watching some games and seeing how the kids do. I have no expectations for the team as a whole, and frankly I think they'll play borderline unwatchably bad basketball a good bit of the time. But that's just how it goes when you're rebuilding.

    But no, the Rockets org gets none of my monies.

    Good sell. Those type of moments are great to watch regardless of the outcome of the game.

    Agreed. The potential superstar in Sengun is why I'll watch this season.

    I would answer the question with a question, why do you watch the team? How big of a fan are you?

    Myself, I will watch regardless as this sport and franchise will always be my favorite. If it’s developing young players, or a team of skilled veterans who are in the playoff hunt, I’ll watch. I think you have to ask yourself those why’s though. Win or lose I still get joy watching great effort and ball movement. If it it gets down to poor game play and isolation, I may watch less but I’ll still watch.

    unfortunately, Silas is the Culley of the NBA. There is no plan.

    i'd say silas is like the @Cutty312 of the nba. high ceiling, but still 2 years away from 2 years away.

    So you post a new thread on a Rockets BBS saying you don't want to watch said team? You could read any thread in the history of the BBS to find out why you should watch... did you start this one just to hear yourself talk?

    Ty Lawson is literally the best Rocket of all time.
    Also I am not saying it exists but there could potentially be places to watch streams for free, but don't do that.

    You could just answer the question as others have politely done and/or vote in the poll if you like. I don’t need to hear your opinion of me as a fan.

    At least this season I won’t have to sweat about losing our draft pick to OKC after every win.

    Probably going to be top 5 worse team, but if they can atleast win 25-30, and look like there trying to win games close down the stretch. It should be fun year, i mean young team in new era, and rebuilding on the fly after all that success with harden.. Not much to do but cheer young kids developing.

    You wont see any real playoffs until maybe some of there players turn into all-stars or they sign a big name or 2 in like what 2-3 years?. Im not expecting much these couple years. Hoping segun can be the next Gasol. Green and Kj young shining stars turn in to legit stars maybe? Could you have 3 allstars from Houston in 2-3 years? Wood have the potential to make a allstar team? Who knows...
