    Tillman will never get credit for anything in my book other than blowing up a championship team. Can't believe we had Harden and CP3 and now we have this....

    Will always love the Rockets but I sure ain't spending any money to watch this team as long as he's the owner...

    The Sacramento Kings pretty much have missed on mostly all their picks. Their history in the last decade is horrendous

    How can you be a championship team when you aint got no championship? And Fertita didnt blow them up Harden blew them up. Are you implying Fertita is the one who broke up Cp3 and Harden? Lol. There's a reason they dont talk to each other gimme a break.

    Lol its fine if you dont wanna pay money, nobody has the right to tell you what to do with your money.

    Im not implying I know it for fact cuz Tillman said it himself about the Westbrook trade,

    He blew up our best shot at winning it all by being cheap and not wanting to spend into luxury tax. It'll be years before we get a players as good as CP3 and Harden if we even ever get that again..

    How can you be so naive? Why would everyone around Tillman quit if it was all Hardens fault.

    The only reason Fertita traded for WB is cuz Harden wanted Cp3 gone. If Harden wanted Cp3 to remain you think Fertita would trade Cp3 away? You're the naive one here. They havent been talking for months and according to reports there was "no respect there at all".

    I aint talking about how Ariza was the key to championship formula gimme a break man.

    Except Morey told Harden he wasn't gonna make the trade and Harden was fine with it. They talked and hugged it out last time they played against each other. Stop making stuff up to spin your narrative. Morey even said it was originally the plan to bring Westbrook into play with CP3 and Harden. Harden never asked for CP3 gone, he wanted Westbrook.

    why would Morey, MDA, and Tad Brown all quit? And they all left before Harden even demanded a trade.

    We don't need to talk about Ariza that was just one of the many moves we had to make due to financial reasons. Like trading all our firsts to dump Anderson and then Knight etc.. not making moves to make us better.

    This is straight from the horses mouth: "I mean he aint gonna hit me to tell my daughter happy birthday today. I MEAN WE DONT TALK, COMMUNICATE NOTHING LIKE THAT"



    Oh yeah they talked and hugged it out AFTER Cp3 already got traded for WB? Then whats the point of that? That's irrelevant as Cp3 already got traded out of the team by Harden. Are you calling Cp3 himself a liar now? Who is the one with the false narrative here Cp3 or you? LOL @WB, Harden and Cp3 on the same team how would that even work salary wise? Why dont you make a trade that somehow lands WB on the Rox while keeping Harden and Cp3? Cmon man just try and see if its possible. You're the naive one here how many times has Morey lied in public? Remember the time he said Cp3 wasnt getting traded? How about when he said no plans to trade Simmons for Harden? But ok, lets believe him when he said plan was all 3 to magically be on the same team even if both Cp3 and WB can only play pg.

    Only 1 first was traded to dump Anderson for Brandon Knight and Marquess Chriss. Rather than blaming Fertita, why dont you blame Morey for signing Anderson in the first place? The moves to make us better are Morey's job not Fertita. Fertita said he'll pay if the Rox make the finals, which they didnt cuz Morey did a poor job signing talent. If you wanna talk dumping firsts, the Rox havent had a FRP in the Morey era since 2013. Fertita arrived in 2019. Dont act like Morey has valued all those picks till Fertita arrived.

    Here we go again with Morey, Dumbtoni and Tad Brown. First of all Dumbtoni is a Dumbtoni ok? He good if you want regular season wins but thats all he good for cuz he is Dumbtoni. How many chances has he gotten by now? PHX, Rockets, Brooklyn lol...keep giving him chances all with the same result. Morey is a decent GM but he has his flaws and has done a terrible job starting with the first Cp3 trade. After that it has been mistake after mistake. Regardless Stone has been much better for this team and I wouldnt swap hin for Morey straight up right now. Tab Brown? Man who cares if Tad freaking Brown leaves??? Do you even know what he did? Dude's an executive for crying out loud. You really crying about an executive jumping ship? Who tf cares???? You prob had no clue who Tad Brown is before he left wtf.

    TLDR I dont care if people leave if better people were brought in to replace them. Im a Rockets fan not a Tad Brown fan.

    Tilfart totally screwed up our team and admitted to pushing for Westbrook trade out of his own mouth wherehe he also admitted front office didn't want to do it. Literally, everyone left because of him. It seems people hate Harden so much they'll make up anything to make him look bad. He doesn't call CP3 for his daughter's birthday? Who gives a crap, I don't do that for life long friends either. The delusional Tilfart defenders are either getting paid or have a mental deficit.

    That says nothing about him hating Harden, so what if they aren't friends and he won't go say Happy Birthday.. At no point have you ever heard James Harden say he wanted CP3 traded. Harden has barely spoke about any of this stuff. One day I hope we get a CP3 and James Harden sit down interview like KD did with Green recently. In Morey's mind CP3 wasn't getting traded until Tillman forced his hand. Big reason why he quit for family reasons then just took another job? Are you TIllman Fertita? Are his Son? Why do you defend this guy soo much? He's been a trash owner since he got here. Cutting salary, laying off employees, making dumb trades...

    Their is a huge difference between using your first round picks to trade for a player like James Harden or a CP3 vs trading them for scrubs to dump salary.. Are you being serious? And you are wrong cuz we drafted Sam Dekker in 2015. Also he drafted Clint Capela in 2014.. You are way off.. He may not have been good but Dekker was a key piece in the CP3 trade also. Morey did value picks. He collected assets, he may not have used the picks to draft players but he used them to build a team.

    Yes 1 first to dump Anderson for KNight. Then another first to dump Knight for Iman SHumpert. Then Tillman didn't want to pay Shumpert or heck even NeNe so Morey has to come up with the most incentivized bs contract ever seen in the history of the league that got Vetoed by the NBA.

    The thing is trading for Westbrook coulda been done easily if he didn't waste all our picks and salary cap flexibility. Heck an expiring Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon with the 2 frps we gave away probably coulda got it done also.

    From Tillman's mouth directly admitting he was the reason we traded for Westbrook.

    Why does every thread have to be de-railed with Harden talk?

    Philly will be better in the playoffs after trading Simmons. Some buffoon who doesn't understand the playoffs and basic stats will give Morey a decent return. Embiid and Harris will be more open than they've ever been if Simmons is replaced with someone whose defender will stick to him.

    Morey will have that team top 3 for a decade or more. Just has to first sweep up the mess colangelo and Brad left behind.
