    Is it Wall, Dipo or House? Other?

    The Wall hate is way too thick imo. It is harsh given that he is returning from a major injury that kept him out for 2yrs. He is getting ripped for inefficiency and lack of defense. There is room for improvement, no doubt, but I am rooting for him and wish him the best.
    I even read a member comment recently wishing for a season ending injury for Wall. I won’t name names.

    Thoughts....

    *I tried to edit poll question so I could replace ‘hate’ with ‘passionately dislike’
    (but it is not editable. :()

    Personally I don’t understand ‘hating’ any players so I voted none, but House would be closest.

    Wouldn't go so far as to say 'hate,' but most disliked has to be Wall.

    - Playing him stunts the growth of KPJ
    - Tries to be a certain bearded fellow, but looks more like Westbrook without the stat
    - Literally has nothing to prove, since no one regards him as 'good' anymore

    To that third point, he's literally still an NBA player with a big contract, and teams are still willing to give you playing time. That's a good life, right there.

    He's had more than enough time to show himself, the Rockets and the rest of the NBA that he can still run and dribble and play basketball. He needs to defer to the best player on the Rockets, and he doesn't because...because he has something to prove or whatever. But he doesn't.

    Dislike is more of the word. But I would say wall and vic. Just because they are playing selfish and tryna prove a point to the entire league which hurts the team.

    Both Wall and Vic O piss me off because of this... They likely show other teams more value by staying healthy and showing positives in athleticism and movement vs scoring and playing hero ball... Yet they both continue to try and carry a team that does not need to be carried, The Rockets need to develop and Wall alongside Vic O should be facilitating that for the young guns. Getting Wood, Tate, KPJ and even Martin is way more important than these guys putting up 20+ shots so that their stats seems good. They are virtually using The Rockets to establish value and gtfo while our core and future has to wait for them to get theirs in order to have a shot.

    Don't hate Wall either just do not want him as a starter on the Rockets.

    House irritates me to no end too but he is actually a Rocket so I can almost forgive him.

    Dipo doesn't drive me nuts like he does to all of you. I appreciate his defense.

    Hate is the wrong word. Wall is my answer though - simply because of his contract. Apart from that, no biggie.

    If EGo was fit, he might get a look in - long contract, too often injured, and too much sqwuaking when not fo(w)led!!

    Wall is maybe my least favorite Rocket of all time. To put this into perspective: I didn't have a major problem with the Royce White pick flopping, I understood the risk and it didn't have a major impact on others on the team.

    You'll never catch me saying this again, but I don't mind taking on worse contracts without compensation to get Wall off the roster half a season quicker. He is selfish and has horrible habits, egotistical about mediocre productivity. I didn't think it would be this bad when we acquired him, I'm actually amazed.

    Glad I'm not the Rockets GM. If we're being professional, we should hold on to him till a net neutral deal comes along after we've eaten more of his salary. Some people though...

    Wall with his 'self proclaimed franchise player' = 20 L streak

    Maybe he wouldn't get so much hate, if he acknowledged he is returning from a major injury that kept him out for 2 years, and he is no longer a star. And did not act like a star. Or jack up the shot attempts tha ta star warrants.

    Maybe he wouldn't get so much hate, if one of the first things he did, wasn't throw shade at James Harden.

    Maybe he wouldn't get so much hate, if he didn't throw continue to throw shade at his current teammates.

    Maybe he wouldn't get so much hate, if he acknowledged Christian Wood is a much better, and efficient offensive threat, and actually did what a PG should do and get him the ball.

    Maybe he wouldn't get so much hate, if he didn't - multiple times each and every single game - blatantly ignore a player in a much better position for a shot, just so he could do his best Westbrick impression.

    Hate is a strong word. But in my view of John Wall it is very much warranted. He is by far my most despised Rocket ever.

    It has to be Wall .... that contract is horrible. He doesn't fit the timeline , doesn't help you win , doesn't really help develop the young guys .... Its a waste of 45m for two years.
    The only good thing about his contract is it gets you half way to the salary floor.
