    I wanted to quote your other post about how "the fact wood didn't get articles about an apology". Pretty much lines up with rockets most likely shipping wood out at some point... What the best value we can get?

    I didn't watch the end but I'm guessing he hit a game winner in a meaningless game against Washington in an otherwise below par performance and your silly ass is hype about it.

    And you thought to yourself I'm gonna go to that kpj thread and show them!!!

    Good one.

    Glad the organization is thinking long term and is much more reasonable than us.

    Fair enough - but on the Rockets specifically, I think it's fair to say the guy has been and continues to be out of his breadth. If he had his way it would have been John Wall taking the last shot last night. Opinions from guys like him and Windhorst, who seemingly go out of their way to poopoo the team, shouldn't be used as a proxy for the general consensus, regardless of their status.

    The best defense is a great offense

    When I mentioned Mannix, I never said I agreed with him. I didn't even read the article. My point is that the Rockets are getting bad press right now. It's like we both probably think Steph A Smith is a joke, but he's also in millions of ears.

    You were one the first ones to call for their heads and then flip flopped.

    The others are at least consistent.

    Is Kevin Porter Jr. a viable point guard starter for a winning team? I just don't see it. Below is one of many instances that show he just doesn't have that instinct. I think we're fooling ourselves forcing him into this role. Will he have the right temperament when we inevitably move him to the bench? These are questions we should be asking ourselves. I want the Rockets to target Brunson or draft a point guard prospect next year. I can't go another season with this non-offense offense that Silas is running. It's stunting the younger players' development.

    People are fired up because he got suspended and hit a buzzer beater.

    Guy is flashy but not consistent or great.
    Honeymoon phase will end again.

    I think it's clearly not a coincidence that Wood decided to be a diva the same night KPJ left the building. KPJ confronts Wood about being soft and weak, Wood whines and they bicker, KPJ leaves the arena to cool off. Honestly the most plausible thing that happened imo

    Actually, he spent most of his time deflecting for KPJ and refusing to blame anybody but the coaches. Then he briefly finally displayed opinions that the players were wrong (he was blaming the coaches post after post after post, even saying Lucas shouldn't be allowed to challenge players) and then flip-flopped back to defending KPJ above all else. He's fairly consistent in that tbh.
