    Harden ditched the Rockets and fans are just rooting for whose left on the team.

    I don't know if anyone is expecting much of this team but I'll root for them as they are wearing the jersey.

    LOL?

    Our draft picks are some of the best draft picks that any team has.
    You couldn't completely rebuild with much better assets than those.

    I rather have the picks we got than Jaylen Brown.

    He just got the largest draft pick haul ever.

    You're out of your mind if you think Miami will trade Herro for Oladipo. They're getting him in free agency if they want him.

    they still wouldn’t give up herro. Dipo is injury prone. I think the heat are saving herro for Beal

    Considering where we’re going now, we need some young “heroes” to grow with the team. That’s what’s disappointing about this Harden trade. We didn’t get at least one genuine possibility to go along with the picks.

    Because accoring to CF a player like brown plus a ton of picks should have been the minimum return for harden.

    Depends on what we do with the picks....keep in mind tillman is still the owner so he will try to duck the tax no matter what. He gives away picks for cash all the time.

    They actually got LeVert and Allen with the deal, they preferred Oladipo and the additional picks. If they wanted to they could have just kept those 2 plus the additional picks.

    For as much grief as the team has copped, Stone has been doing a solid job so far.

    I’m fairly certain that Ainge would entertain 4 picks, Dipo and Tuck for Brown.

    Just trade Oladipo to NOLA, Alexander Walker had a chance tonight and went off against the Clippers, dude is a beast and is wasted behind Lonzo and Bledsoe, maybe the Pelicans are dumb enough to trade him in order to get another big name.

    Levert and allen is a worse deal than was offered before the season. I told yall then the deals would only get worse if we tried to wait and pretend we had more leverage than we actually do. We could done the same deal and also had dinwiddie to keep or flip.

    LMAO yeah they would give up a known commodity (a very young one at that) for unknown commodities (most likely worthless picks). And by doing that, they'll be destroying their other young key player's present AND future, removing any hopes of yielding a competitive team. They'll sabotage their chances of keeping Tatum when he becomes a free agent. You, sir, are a troll or extremely delusional.

    Do you not know how Ainge operates? Picks are his life.
    In what bizarro world is Oladipo some scrub?
    I’m convinced some here only watch the Rockets.

    We can do whatever we want.
    If we want we can slowly rebuild and save money or we can nub the next superstar that wants to leave.
    We would never get such a haul from Ainge even if we gave him a prime Lebron.

    Ainge will trade his own mother for a second rounder if someone offered it.
    Compromise Tatum's future? He would trade these picks for another star and make a superteam.

    Also our picks are anything but worthless.

    Yes, he converts assets into stars and not the other way around. Remove your homer glasses.
