    Maybe instead of playing, Harden should have grabbed his hamstring and limped off and he could have been a hero like CP3!

    Because THATS ALL YOU HAVE. That is literally all you have to your arguments over why we cant win and its ridiculous. It's also something that's not true and isnt backed up.

    That 4v3 offense allowed westbrick to score more paint points than Giannis. Westbrick also shot a career high 47% from the field. Westbrick just makes to many mistakes defensively and losses the ball too easily on offense to be worth his contract. He’s not a Supermax player at this stage of his career and neither is cp3

    It still is going over your head. CP3 is praised more because we can physically see him putting in more effort during games. We can physically see him with our own eyes be the emotional leader of the team during clutch moments in that WCF.

    His injury had nothing to do with his work ethic, his leadership style, his personality etc.

    You are acting as if CP3 faked an injury to avoid playing. I'm sorry between CP3 and Harden, Harden is the one who stays on the floor rolling over like he broke his femur whenever he misses a lay up and wanted a whistle fr the refs.

    You’re acting as if that’s the only time he got hurt. CP3 is always hurt in the playoffs. He should be the last dude talking about who’s built for a long playoff run. You say “praised more” when it’s really giving him a pass. Part of ability is availability.

    His injuries have nothing to do with work ethic and personality. People don't give players a pass when one of those things are compromised.

    What good is his personality if the guy is always in suit? How’s that going to help a co star vs 4 all stars? Man I get it you like CP3 but the guy is always hurt and always yapping which is why his act wears thin. He’ll be a helluva coach though!

    His yapping is part of the reason why the 2018 Rockets were so successful. He's the best leader this team has had since arguably Hakeem. I guess you can refer to role player leaders also like Shane Battier.

    If this person really is his mom, whatever it is she might be saying let’s try to be a bit respectful. She’s going to hold the interests of her son above all else. Mother’s love. No point arguing with that.

    This. It is 100% Tilman. If Morey was still here Harden would be on board.

    Yes Harden wants the ring, but he trusted Morey along the way. Once Morey was fed up with Tilman and bolted, Harden started to wonder.

    This. It is an absolute HISTORIC bailing of a franchise. If you can't see this then you are blind. It is laughable, except we are fans and it is pain.

    Bailing or cleaning house... depends on your perspective.

    Either way looks bad, imo.

    There are people who legitimately still defend Tilman to this very day. Utterly astonishing.

    Isn't it? It is so obvious. In 2 years look what he has done to the trajectory of the franchise. Who is here. Who isn't? And all we have is "tilmanisms:"

    He is getting "his way" alright. Tilman's finger prints are all over his team.

    It’s legitimately sad to realize Houston won’t ever get close to winning a ring again as long as Tilman owns the Rockets
