    I can’t tell if he is lazy and just doesn’t care about getting better or lacks the intelligence to be better.

    Chriss has all the physical attributes to be really good in the Rockets system. Kinda seems like Kwame Brown
    syndrome......looks like Tarzan, but plays like Jane.

    He messed up an alley oop jam, then hung on the rim to jam it back which of course is illegal. He chose the guaranteed turnover rather than even giving us a chance at an offensive rebound. That's world class bball dumb.

    Terrence Jones was decent for a little bit, Criss just sucks. No positive vibes for him

    Wonder how he pulled even garbage minutes. This guy is bad.

    This team started off the season so awkwardly and hasn't "made the trade" yet so they've kinda been in limbo for a while now. Even with Harden going all-time it shouldn't be lost on us that there are some real scrubby scrubs scrubbing up the minutes right now. Not sure if playing time is helping Chriss' trade value but it's pretty clear the team in general is still waiting on a move to be made. And for a team that literally played harden-rivers-clark-ennis-tucker as a 5 man unit it would seem rife with opportunity for anyone over 6'7"......

    I can't wait until we get rid of this scrub, Chriss.

    MCW is gone
    Zhou is gone
    Melo, hopefully soon.
    Chriss, hopefully soon.

    I want a roster filled with players that in various degrees can legit play or can be groomed with upside potential.

    Banish the scrubs!

    Morey saved himself with finding a diamond in the rough House and then Austin Rivers falling into his lap, then Harden balling out having the best stretch of his career. Morey's offseason was disastrous.

    Marquese Chriss about to show the world he's on Thon Makers level ….


    All kidding aside , he's gonna have to step up while Capela is out or this team could be in trouble …. Harden playing Superman or not. CP3 , EG and Capela on the shelf with injuries …. that's a lot to overcome.

    Rockets have the best player in the league and the worst player in the league on the same roster. Wow.

    Chriss’ play makes Kwame roll over in his grave.

    I can deal with the guy being trash provided he shows effort and hustle, but he doesn't. He walks around like he's an all-star.

    Compare that with Hart who when he comes in is hustling for loose balls and fighting for rebounds. They're not too dissimilar in present ability but Hart's attitude will take him far.

    When can we trade Chriss, Knight and filler for an NBA power forward-center? Feb 1 ? There is enough money there to buy 245lbs, 10 and 10. We need size, rebounds, and an enforcer.

    Hey, Mr. Agent, Marquese has already had an opportunity with the Rockets. More than one, in fact And if he were a good enough player, he could have stepped in when Capela went down and earned himself a decent contract with someone for the next few years.

    Instead, he totally shat the bed every time his number was called.

    And speaking of that, has there ever been a more appropriate jersey number in the history of Rockets basketball?
