    Alperen Şengün is back, set to face the team that traded him away. Kevin Porter Jr. still seems a ways away from a return. ŞenHub, trade deadline (it's February!) and more -- We're talking Houston Rockets at 11:00am CT.

    We're Talking Rockets!

    CF articles (Clutch, Bime, BenDuBose) >>>> RealGM

    Anyway I opened the link and I can't be bothered to read the whole thing

    What is the TL;DR version?

    TLDR: Neither Trump nor Hillary is a good choice. Keith Jones is going to play a large part in keeping Anderson and Eric Gordon healthier than ever before.

    1. They said the "snarky hate train" is wrong. While it's OK for us to do it, I'm not a big fan of other sites calling out @cheke64 and @Mr. Clutch like that.
    2. The author also worked in the word "zeitgeist" without approval from @SamFisher, @Will or @rimbaud .
    3. He then spends 25 paragraphs blaming Harden's defense on Brewer and the coaches, but in the end still saying Harden indeed was a terrible defender last year, safely covering all the bases like @JuanValdez -- A Guy Who Has Opinions.
    4. His most shocking statement though was defending Harden for being lazy because he had a heavy workload, clearly not asking Les for permission to use the Rockets copywritten marketing campaign material for Harden.
    Overall, I give it 3 out of 5 stars, mainly because he left us with another video reason why we all hate Stephen Curry. Watch him block for Klay twice on this play ... poor Harden

    This stat jumped out at me.

    Overall, he played nearly 300 more minutes than Gordon Hayward, who was second in total minutes (that equals to about eight more games played for Harden than anyone else.)

    Hopefully he has some relief this year.

    that play illustrates that klay is overrated, how people cant see it i have no idea. He has a chance to beat harden off the dribble and is instead looking for picks because he doesnt trust his handle
