    Did Tillman push him to give Dwight Howard, Ryan Anderson, Clint Capela, Eric Gordon and CP3 >$20M annually over 4+ years? Three of those contracts required us giving up essentially every 1st rounder in the future to get rid of and Eric Gordon at this point would take a first. If it wasn't for Cuban being a jackass, he would have given Parsons a massive deal too and that would have been another one. Virtually everyone not named James Harden (and this one is a DUH signing) that he has given a big contract too has been a failure.

    How about the fact he traded away Montrezl Harrell, Lou Williams, Pat Beverley AND a first rounder for a guy who was forcing a trade off his team? It's arguably a bad trade even without him wanting to come here, and only here, which is hilarious. For all the MDA haters, Morey is the guy who hired him and pushes this stupid offense - I wouldn't be surprised if he also agrees with these stupid rotations and not giving your other bench players a chance while guys like Lu Dort and Gordon-Tucker go off against us providing a spark for their teams as they go crazy from the bench.

    Still not convinced? If you took the guys Morey has let go during his time with us for virtually nothing and started a team with them, they would probably win 45-55 games in the East and wouldn't shock me if they fought for the 8 seed in the West. They'd have a starting five of Goran Dragic, Kyle Lowry, Robert Covington (remember we had him originally), Carmelo Anthony, and Montrezl Harrell with a bench of Pat Beverley, Lou Williams, and Kenneth Faried (comes in and averages 13-8 for us on extremely efficient shooting...MDA/Morey of course stop playing him once starters came back).

    Morey's obsession of trying to form a "BIG THREE" essentially killed any shot of us winning a title with Harden. In addition to all of what I just said, we lost out on signing so many good role players because every f***** offseason he wouldn't sign them in hopes of landing a third star, and by the time his target signed with another team, they were already signed elsewhere.

    "There has been widespread speculation throughout the league that Feritta would want to also move on from Morey this offseason, gossip that began in the wake of Morey's tweet that damaged the Rockets' relationship with China, costing the franchise millions of dollars in sponsorship deals. High-ranking Rockets sources dismiss those rumors, saying that Fertitta fully intends to keep Morey."

    The Rockets are not playing the same style as the Warriors. First, the Warriors play more of a motion offense with tons of screens and movement. The Rockets have one guy facilitating and the others standing there along the three-point line. Secondly, the Rockets don’t have one post offender on the team. Golden State has at least two good post defenders to guard against larger players. Green is 6’8” and they have a 6’10” guy that can switch on smaller players. Are used to have Maggie as well, and before that Bogut. Oh and for a short period of time they had Durant. In fact they’ve always had a low post player that can set picis, grab rebounds, and disrupt shots in the paint.

    you cant even name the 6'10" guy

    did the rockets only have one guy facilitating when cp3 was here , look at the game logs , we didnt play capela much . ? does WB never touch the ball , if harden was allowed to handle the ball we mightve fared better vs LA , the other 4 guys touched it more the last 2 games .

    Also , my statement has to do with how they will play next year. not how they played when they had 4 top 25 nba players

    This was swept under the rug because of how good a season we had after getting CP3 but yeah, a few people pointed this out.

    We basically threw in gifts to the Clippers in good faith or some silly **** we could really...REALLY...use Trez.

    Fair but a rebuild is on the horizon.

    The 6’10” guy is Kevin Looney who used to give Harden fits. I can’t even make sense of your argument around Harden and handling the ball, or your comment about Capela. My response has everything to do with your statement about Golden State playing the same style next year. They don’t play the same style as Houston. They don’t place mobile like Houston. But hey , that’s okay. I was drinking tonight too
