    Is this that beautiful ball movement?

    These guys think they are PJ Tucker or something.

    Silas needs to man up and reign two selfish players in

    I'd rather just trade them for draft picks if any team is willing.

    @Rocket River

    If James Harden would’ve put up 51 attempts out of 91 shots The Rockets would’ve won by 30 points tonight

    Take that for data!

    brick brothers needed 55 shots and 24 free throws to score 69 points

    both are unwatchable

    At this point can we just release Wall?

    chuck brothers! man, these two are not playing like vets. If you have teammates that shoot first and force the issue, it takes the air out of any team in a minute.

    No one else can hit a shot either and there’s no one to throw it to in the paint...not defending Oladipo but at least John Wall is taking it to the hoop and trying to create.

    I cannot see how we developing any young players .. . .when 60% of the shots
    are going to two players who will probably not be here once we good again
    One leaving at the end of the year or sooner
    The other . . . . when they can get rid of him

    Okay... I’m just saying John Wall is playing hard and trying to win, without Wood he’s pretty much on an island out there offensively. Tate can make a few plays, McClemore and Patton might hit an open 3. Tucker can’t hit the side of a barn right now.

    I’m just not getting the hate for John Wall honestly.

    It's not HATE
    It's frustration.

    This is worse ISO team than Harden ever was
    Harden would have at least had 10 dimes

    You give Harden that, he would've broken Wilt's record.

    Even Harden hasn't taken 30 shots this season, his highest is 25. 30 FGA attempts and under 50% shooting is crazy.

    Wall was brought here to be a playmaker & he's done a piss poor job of it. I heard CF claim he was the best passer on the team even before the trade yet I've seen very little to back that up.

    You're not getting the hate for John Wall after he posted the worst stat line in history including 0 assists and 5 TO, clearly not willing to play?

    We're going to discover later that that game happened BECAUSE Silas told them to share the ball.

    Also, he just thought he might outplay Harden tonight. And knowing John Wall, I would bet anything that he thinks he outplayed Harden except for the difference in talent on each roster lol.

    He has the skills, but he is just selfish right now, there's something in his ego that takes a lot of his focus.

    Only if he were still a rocket. If he would have taken 51 shots as a net, he would have broken Wilts record for points in a game.

    You never really watched him play in Washington, did you? This is who Wall has always been except he actually hits some 3 pointers once in a while now.
