    Oladipo was a bad attempt at rebuilding the value of a former all-star. I'm 100% sure they were trying to build his value by putting up numbers on a bad team to flip him for more assets.

    Tilman did **** up the Westbrook trade but at some point people have to get over it.

    Save it for your downlines, brother. This is a negative space.

    I thought Oladipo is because of his expiring contract

    Class envy and jealousy is not a good look.

    I'm not a Tillman fan.

    I'm also not a fan of petty jealousy.

    When Harden wanted out, the rebuild began.

    Well, as an entrepreneur myself - I appreciate the hard work but most of the UBER rich people had massive help to get going, either through actual investment or through hookups.

    And, they don't pay their taxes because they pay off politicians......I am not a fan of anyone that cheats the system or pretends they did it from scratch when they didn't.

    Quoted for truth

    Funny thing is some of those same posters have been wanting the rebuild to happen for years and now they're still complaining.

    So you don't like any owner in any sport?

    Rockets ownership and front office, not so subtly, openly admitting to the tank.

    Suite.

    I am not a fan of any owner, no. I do have Mark Cuban on my phone though, we have done some biz together, but overall - I don't LIKE people that fake like they built from scratch.

    I am a fan of teams, not ownership - I mean can you imagine being a fan of someone because they are rich, how sad do you have to be to do that?

    Why do you love Trump so much then? Other than him being rich.

    :eek:

    There's an alternate reality where instead of Paolo Banchero and Jalen Green and Alperen Sengun we are building with Tre Mann and Keegan Murray.

    Count your blessings Rockets fans.

    I'm just waiting for the Sports Illustrated cover to come out stating "Your 2025 NBA Champs" with Jalen Green on the cover

    This trade was so bad. It killed future assets and lead to Rockets being dismantled form within. As much hate as Stone receives, the Rockets are very fortunate to be where they are today. Rockets could easily be a team without Green, without Sengun, with less future FRPs, and with Ben Simmons pouting about being on the worse team and no way to improve.

    Its possible to be grossed out at how Fertitta made his money but recognize he was self made and also kinda wish dicks like you that make everything political wouldn't make me feel bad about the team I've loved my whole life cause you hate the owner.

    I have to say that's why Morey was considered a special GM for building a championship-caliber team without tanking.
