    He’s coming up after the G league playoffs, we just have to hope Tucker and Oladipo are moved and House/McClemore is attached to one of those trades.

    Wood coming back is key... he’ll set the tone along with Wall, Tate, Nwaba. Bring up Porter, KMart, sign Brooks and you got a culture reset.

    I agree with you. But how bad does it look that g-league players have to come and save the Rockets, smh.....

    i don’t see it as “saving” but essentially giving us something to cheer for during losses. His progress will make any game more valuable as a fan.

    this is scary because Wood alone with some real potential talent around him can mess up our draft stock

    Honestly, even with Porter and Wood we are so thin on depth we likely lose at least 2 out of every 3. We have to let him play if he’s healthy.

    Not going to make a difference is Wall is going to ball hog.

    Wall will stunt the development of both Wood and Porter, he is just too selfish and too entitled to grow young players.

    Everyone loves to tout Wall as a leader but it was Harden who actually took players, young and old, under his wing and found ways to unlock players.

    Wall is the exact opposite.

    Not only that, but Porter plays the same damn position as wall

    It's going to be a problem (wall)...unless we want kpj to run to the Lakers when his rookie deal is up

    He needs to start..hes that good..walls in the way , to old, to costly, not enuff mins

    So, they need to buyout wall.. seriously. .. actually I'd get rid of everyone over 25 (except nwaba) by the deadline..it no team wants wall, fine, buyout

    Bring up Brooks,kmj,kpj, lamb, and Gerald green

    Jesus, wish stone would just get it over with

    Love KPJ and cant wait for him to be on our team, but lets not forget its the gleague... no matter how sucky wall dipo and eg have been, they will cook gleaguers too bbq chckn.

    But yes, wall will stunt his devt. Good thing KPJ will run with the second unit with EG who is surprisingly a more willing passer than our starting guards.

    Our new team plays today against the Ignite. I'm guessing it's at 2:30. I'm actually excited about this one.

    This is kind of crazy but if Wall insists on playing this way for the duration of his contract, I wouldn't be opposed to straight up waiving him. Just let his money stay dead on the cap sheet and get him off the team. At least that money will prevent us from throwing a max at Rozier or Randle next year.

    Had no idea rockets legend Bobby Brown was on the ignite. They have him listed as a rookie at age 36, lol.

    You want Tilman Fertitta to buy out Wall, who has, what?, two seasons more after this one left on his contract? :confused:
    Yeah, I don't think Tilman could raise prices enough at his crappy restaurants to cover that.

    31 - 22 Vipers up

    Porter with 4 points on 2/7 shooting ...... 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal...... +9
