    I had a feeling he could run an offense, and he didn't disappoint, even showing off with a no-look pass to PJ Tucker for a 3. He is one of the most interesting players I've ever seen in terms of his ability to play any position on either end, and possesses great athleticism and a natural feel for his surroundings. I really hope he ends up becoming a true starter playing big minutes, maybe this damn trade will be a blessing in disguise.

    If he develops a 3 point shot he can be devastating.

    Yup. I think he should continue as the starting 3 and the offense should run through him when Wall sits. His contract aligns well with Wall's, too. Hopefully he'll keep elevating his game and be in line for a nice extension once Wall's contract comes off the books.

    Wall is not should not will not be in Rockets future plans.

    He is on wrong side of 30 and the ball sticks too much when he is in game.

    That Rockets win as much or more when he doesnt play is telling.

    He should definitely start but I fear it will be another frustrating part where we clamour for change yet we continue seeing Nwaba / House start. Only once Tucker is traded maybe he’ll start.

    This kid is my new favorite rocket and I hope Silas cant drop some Luka dust on him.

    Have dream work with him. Just get him as many reps as possible.

    He's been 30 for four months.

    He's on the exact side of thirty.

    He's closer to 29 than 32.

    Come on.


    Tate rules and is my favorite Rocket since Patrick.

    He should not be part of rebuild around Wood.

    Wall-Wood PnR is ugly AF.

    Both Wall and Dipo are very high usage players. Neither plays well off ball.

    I'd much rather have Beal who is younger, more complementary to Silas motion offense and can actually make plays by moving off ball.

    of course i mean Bev.

    Just an awesome guy to watch compete.

    The stars they come and go, but the guys who give 110% make everything so much easier to root for.

    And I'd rather have Luka Doncic.

    We can't snap our fingers and make magic happen.

    John Wall is on an undesirable contract so pick your battle.

    He's here for at least 2 years or the Rockets package FRP with him to get off his salary.

    Also Dipo plays better off ball than you're giving him credit for. He is high usage but he cuts and moves a lot. He is no where near Harden or Russ in value off ball.

    John Wall is 2-4 with losses to the Lakers (2), Pacers and Mavs.
    Houston is 2-2 without John Wall.

    You can't tell anything from that information with that small of a sample size. For the same record, the Rockets were 2-0 without Harden and 2-6 when Harden played (6 of those games being the 6 games John Wall played).

    We will see who is right about Wall.

    Both Wall and Dipo unlikely to be Rockets long term.

    Bro he is exactly 30 years old, how can you be in the other side as soon as you enter 30s.

    When did the Rockets have the option to have Beal?

    Is what I said incorrect or factually untrue?

    And Hardens win-loss record spans 8 years, who is more guilty of small sample size here?

    Wall isn't going anywhere with his contract. The only player that could be swapped for Wall is Westbrook, and the only player that could be swapped for Westbrook is Wall.

    You are. It's the same sample size for both players. I used the same sample size for Harden to show how irrelevant the "facts" you posted are. Yes, it's incorrect to say that that information you posted is telling in any way.
