    We can talk about Wall all we want, but he has been professional.

    Contracts in the future need to be tied to performance. These 30-40 million dollar players producing jack should be paid much less by teams when they underperform, maybe 50% and the other 50% from some form of fund or insurance.

    Nothing to see. He knows that he's not in our plans. Unfortunately, I'm guessing he's not in anyone else's either.

    It's frustrating that we sold low on CP3 and had to give up draft picks to move him, then one year later OKC got assets back for him. And we sold low on Russ, and one year later Washington got assets back for him.
    Meanwhile, we are stuck with John Wall for now. Really is an unfortunate series of trades that explains how we are where we are.

    With that said, IMO, the less we hear of John Wall at all, the better- until it's hopefully some trade announcement

    Wait, people seriously want this dude to talk? Everyone and their moms know that both sides want to move on from each other ASAP now that this tank commander duties are done. If he's speaking about us positively, it means he is still involved with the Rockets and that is bad. If he is speaking about us negatively, that's drama and also bad. Silence is golden here. Only time I want to hear from Wall or about Wall is when he is traded.

    I think he would’ve been a better fit in LA. Hell I think anyone they were talking about would’ve been a better fit. Can’t believe they passed on Buddy for Westbrook. It had to have came from LBJ but I don’t get it.

    Yeah, but think about this.....

    With Russ we don't sniff Green
    That first round pick that came with Wall(plus Det.) turned into Sengun
    And, when the time is right...Stone will use Wall's contract as a facilitating piece for something big. (or the precursor that sets up el grande)

    Yeah, but you'd think we'd still be in this position right now where we have some really good draft picks at 2, 16, 23, 24? I mean, Wall is the Tank Commander after all. I don't think those 3 you mentioned would have netted us the #2 pick. With those guys I think we would have had a slightly better record (still wouldn't make playoffs), but we probably would have landed anywhere from #5 to #10 and would have lost the pick. I'd rather have these guys we drafted last night, than those Lakers you just mentioned.

    Probably not but it would put a ton of pressure on John Wall to accept a buyout or get himself traded. If he just chose to sit around and collect checks he may never play again. If he got desperate maybe he'd decline his player option to be set free. The delusions of "franchise player" require a drastic measure imo, this is it. The only thing he can do is command a tank and I don't want that presence on this team. The price for a culture reset, a new, young, exciting group is 45 million dollars. Accept the charge Tillionaire.

    He’s been a professional so far and hopefully that doesn’t change. Hopefully he and the Rockets will work together to put him a much situation, he just has to be patient. I’m sure Stone and co. have assured him they’re doing what they can and to just roll with it until then. Trading him to a playoff team in need of a PG like the Clippers or Knicks would be ideal.

    Rockets sold low on Paul and WB. They went on to bounce back and restore a lot of their value.

    Wall will be another year removed from his missed season. I’d bet that Wall will restore some of his lost value as well.

    Only problem is that there are now young guards who need playing time. Who’s ego is gonna be ok coming off the bench?

    Probably best to just trade wall if anyone will take him even if we lose the trade. Augustine can be the vet pg off the bench and mentor to the young guys. The youngsters need to stretch their wings.

    I assumed the three periods"..." would be taken as an obvious sign of sarcasm. Should of used an emoji
