    I agree 100 percent. Till did this to all of us but is hurting himself in the long run. Wish he would just sell.

    Obviously not worth KPJ or CWood’s time. Other than the Garry Bird 7 game miracle, this season sucks balls. Can I have my money back for the team pass? I miss Harden. :(

    If Jalen and Sengun both not playing im not watching. If both do I do. Sitting Wall is clear sign for me I would watch with him playing but If I am about to loose night and sleep to watch KPJ and Wood while this mother****ers give less ****s than me while getting millions then sorry but this new age nba is not for me. Id rather watch Joe Johnson in Big3 Tournament

    Depends on what you enjoy as a Rockets fan. This season is way more watchable than last season. Last season was atrocious. At least this year we have young rookies who are exciting when they get to play. But as long as Tillman Fertitta is the owner just be prepared for disappointment. I still watch almost every game, I just stop paying to watch every game.

    no pain, no gain.
    witnessing the whole process much more rewarding and meaningful than jumping on the bandwagon half way or right before the celebration.

    It was pretty agonizing to be on the tip of the cup all those years. You knew Harden was going to blow it in the playoffs. I try not get too invested in things I can't control. The worst thing about the current team is the coaching. How are these young players going to jell as a team when the head coach appears clueless?

    Lots of bandwagoners in this thread though, and they'll be the ones bragging the loudest if we do start playing well.

    What do you mean, "our" money? Is there some CF rewards program I don't know about?

    I love seeing them play hard, but it is just a nightmare to watch near end in some games. I watched takes of the wizard game, it was fun seeing them compete, but can they do this consistently? It going to take another year or two to see this every night. Porter shot was clutch. That's what people want them to do every night, compete. They need to get this mindset.

    When they turn it around to be top 5 young team coming up to breaking into playoff mix. It will be interesting to see who is your true star? Wood? Green? Porter? ... Who knows. Right now just bunch young players trying to break into the league.

    I'm more engaged with the Rockets now than I was during the later part of the Harden/Morey era. Harden just gave us false hope. Now it's interesting to see from the beginning the Stone era and the rebuild process. I still believe that the front office wants to put together a championship-caliber team and that's enough to keep me watching despite the losing.

    I gotta say, the Wood and KPJ issues really threw a wet blanket on my interest.

    Even with the terrible record, I kind of enjoyed the idea of the young kids having fun out there, having each other's backs, possibly building something exciting for the future as a team. Then, in the blink of an eye it looks like maybe no one's really having fun at all.

    On top of that, they are young, makes tons of mistakes, have the worst record in the league...and yet somehow still can't accept some tough criticism? Doesn't exactly instill confidence that either of those guys have what it takes to reach any sort of potential.

    At this point it's kind of looking like it's going to be a wasted year as far "team development." I'm still interested in the individual development of Jalen/Josh/Alperin of course, and enjoy rooting for the underdogs like Tate, KJ, and Garrison. But I'm expecting the "team development" to start back up from scratch next season after we hopefully draft another top prospect and cut our losses on any false hopes we had on the other guys.

    I hope I'm wrong about Wood and KPJ, but I think the writing's on the wall.

    I loved watching the NBA, that has changed but I still watch games, the Rockets are a part of it and the reason I watched the NBA.

    Will never forget that.

    Yes.

    I’m good with the rebuild. Things take time. I like watching guys develop.

    I need to see that from coach too and I’m not super convinced he’s the guy to lead. I think his offense is damn good but can he lead? I’m worried he’s too soft.
