    I'm more sad that the losing streak isn't 21 games than happy that we actually won last night. So that should answer your question. Where is your poll?

    One is a way to grow. The other is a way to miss a once in a lifetime chance.

    No contest. 27 straight misses cost the rockets a 3rd title.

    20 losses in a row is beneficial to the team. 27 missed threes in a row was detrimental to the team.

    slow down bro.... keep in mind cp3 was still injured and would have missed the finals. you are crazy if you think beating lebron is a gimme. we had absolutely no one to guard him.

    The most painful? That someone continue without understanding that each victory this season is a step back in the team's rebuilding process.

    Definitely 20 losses, we are a laughing stock for a 50% chance to grab a rookie.

    We were fighting for a championship then.

    as if the refs didnt cost us both game 6 and game 7

    losing 20 straight games is worse considering the games we lost, we lost on our own terms

    The 20 losses is GOOD for the franchise.

    Imagine we had won half of those and been in playoff contention. Oladipo may have re-signed, Tucker would have been retained, and we would be stuck in mediocrity central with Oladipo/ Wall for years.... yuck

    I wonder if OP just woke up this morning and thought to himself "What is the dumbest thread I can make?"

    Why would you want to even rehash either one of these events

    At least when we missed the 27 threes we were consistently in the mix. Now? This hell could last 5 or more years.

    If I wanted to do that I would have posted "Who was a better first round draft pick Mirsad Turkan or Royce White?"
