    I watch the Rockets no matter what. Honestly I'd be more interested in seeing how the young guys play than watching Wall, Cousins and Dipo. We know what they are, and they just aren't good enough to win a ring. If we aren't good enough to win a ring we should rebuild. No point in spinning our wheels like the Kevin Martin era. Do what the Stros did and bottom out. Clean house get young talent on rookie deals and attract a big name free agent.

    That should be the plan. I'd be much more optimistic with John Wall at 20 million. But John wall at 42 million is not something that will win a ring ever.

    Same with Oladipo. He's not a max player and we should not pay him the max just because.


    If John Wall and Oladipo make more or just as much as Lebron and AD or KD and Harden. Our chances of winning is like 1% and that's just hoping they get injured.

    It seems Oladipo is good. He can be a #2 or #3. Now the question is, who's #1?

    If dipo stays long enough for full crowds, “trust the process” chants are in order.

    Is there a bet for Rox making it to the playoffs? I believe the odds there is only for championship not making the playoffs. Lol Im so confident I can do a 100 usd bet with you rn. Sse the Rox only 4 pts behind league leading PHX? Oh right thats only 3 game sample size now. Wait some more man it'll be 4 game sample size next time.

    The max for Dipo and max for Wall is different. Walls max is 42M for Dipo its just 30M. That means Dipo actually makes less than Lebron, AD etc even if he is also a max player. His 2 way play is worth 30M IMO.

    What about Christian Wood? I thought we were talking about Oladipo. Are you now trying to say that Wood is gonna be our Harden caliber player someday? That Christian Wood is going to take us to the promised land? He's good, but not THAT good. I don't think he's even good enough to help us get the 8th seed, but the jury is still out. I'm definitely not confused when I have you pegged as someone who is delusional and/or bad at sports analysis.

    There is no way Oladipo is worth 30 million. Can he even be the 3rd best player on a championship team? 30 million dollars better get you an all star and he won't even sniff the All Star team in the West. Is he even a top 20 guard in the nba?

    All star is just a popularity contest. He is around Mcollum level and is worth the 30M due to his 2 way play imo.

    When Dipo said better days, he meant for him when he is living and playing in Miami.

    I'll bet you. 100 dollars to tip jar for clutch fans. Rockets don't make the playoffs.

    I actually think the Rockets might finish as the worst team in the West.

    I'd take Mcollum over him any day. At least he had an elite skill which is shooting. I don't know what Oladipo is good at. He just makes me miss and appreciate what James Harden could do when I watch him play.

    The only way I'd play Oladipo 30 million is if I already have two superstars and I'm over the cap. Then it doesn't matter what he makes to anyone except Tillman.

    This was a BAD team with Harden and a BAD team without Harden. Harden knew the jig was up. Tillman has a crap product that’s going to have to get much worse to get better unfortunately. Trade Gordon & Oladipo for more picks and continue the rebuild. By the time this team is ready to win, Silas won’t be here either.

    Ok man you on, barring injuries to Wood and Dipo of course. Just remind me if I forget.

    First off, Butler is a better player than Oladipo. Secondly, Butler aint on this team, so it doesn't matter what he did or didn't do. Three, Oladipo IS on this team.

    Curry was elite in playmaking, passing, and shooting from the get go regardless of his health. Oladipo is not even close to Curry's level even before he won his MVPs and championships, and that's why he can't do it.
