    We don't have any choice. This team isn't getting any better or younger.

    Everybody is available for the right price or at least 80% value. We want young players and/or draft picks.

    You don't get it. We're stuck with Paul for three heats. Our window is gone and we just didn't make it

    Coaching sucks and harden is a monumental underperformer when it matters. I’m out.

    We didn’t make it. Came close. Blow it up. MDA, Morey, EG, Capela, GG, CP3. Goodbye.

    I want a rebuild for sure James Harden is at best a 3rd option, Chris Paul is a role player at best at 44 million.

    Clint Capela is a backup Center, needs to be traded for a Stretch Center.

    Eric Gordon is a bench player, P.J. Tucker is backup

    Kenneth Faried is gone for sure, after being disrespected by not playing at all.

    Austin Rivers is getting a payday elsewhere.

    Mike DAntoni is fired for sure, no doubt.

    Rockets need to rebuild not reload, it's useless, the Referees just hates James Harden and Chris Paul.

    Need to trade everyone, it was fun, but the lack of talented youth. Plus a stubborn coach won't help.

    Not if you buy him out in a year or two, a trade prolly never materializes.

    Paul is untradeable. I’m not even sure Minny would take him in exchange for Wiggins...

    Capela And Gordon have minimal value, which can net us a decent role player or two.

    A true rebuild cannot be done without trading Harden. Not even close.

    in order to unload CP3’s albatross deal, we’re gonna have to give up young players or picks...we don’t have the young players, and we have trash picks...if Morey somehow managed to get rid of him then he’s a genius

    Harden should demand a trade to NY

    EG and Tuck could be moved no problem

    We need another GM as well. Someone who pick the next Kawhi instead of Marcus Morris. Many ex players are poor GM's but a statistician will always have his limitations too.

    I can't even believe that I created this thread. I'm not going to back down from it since I've been thinking like that for a few days now, so this is not a overreaction to yesterday's loss.

    Would Tillman go nuclear? Not expecting it. Like others have said - we just don't have the assets to go full rebuild and still succeed short term. So the easiest option is that he will likely fire MDA, and go in a different direction.

    Yeah, it's all a game, but if you are invested in this team, you will get your heart broken. It sucks, man.
