    By all accounts Wall could have whined and cried about not playing at various points during the season last year but, aside from a few tweets, he kept quiet which I appreciated. Granted it's pretty easy to just chill when you're pocketing $40 million to do nothing but he definitely could have been toxic. Kudos, Tank Commander!

    Better than the tantrum that would have come from not trading Westbrook.

    We basically payed him $132,000,000 to not be Russell Westbrook. And that seems like a bargain to me.

    Not Wall’s fault though - that’s the price of Harden blowing us up. Wall just happened to be the contract we got stuck with in the aftermath.

    I.D.I.O.T Has such a high profile player made such little impact for us? I will barely remember his tenure in a year or two. My psychic says no.

    Every one of these folks would take their paycheck for chilling at home if their employer gave them that option. Not mad at John Wall at all, it's not his fault Washington threw all that money at him and the Rockets wanted to play young guys.

    Not taking Wall side over Harden.

    Ever.

    He will always be a Rocket great to me.

    Same as Hakeem and Moses even after they went to other teams.

    I'm not going to hate on the dude. I thought both sides pretty much kept it classy, and that's the best that could be made from the situation. I wish him luck against anybody except the Rockets.... unless we're tanking or something.
