    Strong agree. He had the lowest Assist % in his career (apart from his rookie season). Thing is, I feel like him showing some of that playmaking ability (in addition to his scoring ability) would make him even more attractive to other teams.

    I like Wall, so I'm going to assume that he felt like hogging the ball last season was the best way to lead his team to victory. Hopefully his priorities change coming into next season.

    You forgot Lil' Baby as Spike Lee

    Maybe we are going for:

    D-Rose/Quickley/RJ Barrett/Obi Toppn/ we just need to draft Mobley
    to play the part of Mitchell Robinson...."New Hampton 5"

    I'm curious too - maybe they are referring to the guy the Morris brothers jumped and beat unconscious outside of a basketball tourney in Phoenix? I would say that would earn you a lifetime ban from a basketball facility.

    Exactly. Wall helps with that. Another option is riding that tank down the streets once more and drafting Baby Shaq (Chet Holmgren)



    lol

    LMAO.

    Beverley without a James Harden to cover his lack of offense. That's a hard pass.

    Having the biggest b*tch in the NBA who loves to dish it out but has a temper tantrum when someone looks him in the eyes? That's a very hard pass.

    I mean there IS a scenario where you would do that(if an elite player like let's say Kawhi magically decided he wanted to sign here but you need cap room), but it's not a situation we would likely find ourselves in any time soon.

    Crazy but I dont think Holmgren will meet the hype, at least as a center. If he transitions to PF or sf then maybe he can be the next Larry Bird ir w/e.

    He is so skinny with chicken arms I dunno how much weight his body can hold without breaking down.

    Yeah, you would like to think that the videos I have seen are only him in high school and that he still has a year and a half to grow put on weight and muscle. But at this point he makes young Kevin Durant look like Ronnie Coleman in comparison.

    Well its not just the time its if his body can handle the weight.

    Remember Joe Chee? He was able to put like 30 pounds of muscle but his body couldnt take it and he started dealing with various injuries.

    Is it really that hard?

    Baby Harden = KPjr
    Baby Kobe = Jalen Green
    Baby AD = Wood
    Baby Draymond = Tate

    Questionable analysis, but fairly obvious who is being referred to.

    Wall likes anything regarding him being traded on Twitter or Instagram. He really wants out of town. Kinda strange given how much he was bloviating he loves reping the Rockets?

    Thanks, I can see the similarities of Harden and Kobe...but not AD and Draymond.

    I'm told Mobley is AD and Scottie Barnes is Draymond. If I squint real hard and
    daydream I can see that....6eah sure

    By Babies you mean they are different players striving to be those players.

    Yes, seems to be some hinting going on.

    Participating in a Rocket Poll and now liking a trade proposal having him
    going to Clippers that he knows has no chance. [ both supposedly]

    I'm kinda getting the feeling he doesn't want to be a Rocket.


    As others have put it, a $1 dollar buyout sets him free of all his obligations
    to the Rockets. Set him free to be with whichever team he wishes to go to.
    Wants us fans to put pressure on Tilman to buy him out at the current salary
    amount?

    Good luck with that Mr Wall. I have a feeling he will be getting a phantom
    injury and sent home, away from the team even if we draft Mobley or Cade.
