    This is EXCITING GUYS!!!!

    I honestly dgaf that much at this point where he goes. Get back the best you can.

    I am actually going to have a fun time watching this team. Sure, they won't be as good. But then again it will probably be much easier to watch "the game of basketball" lol

    You mean they'll actually set picks to attack the paint rather than to find a switch to spam iso?

    What if that fool had deal with GSW to go there and was trying to force Rockets to do that. But in the process he harm his PR so much the "good guys" Warriors really don't want him. It would be so Harden to choke job this

    If it didn’t have Wiggins in it, and it also included the Timberwolves 2021 first-round pick, it’s worth considering (still isn’t better than a Simmons deal). As is, the offer is garbage.

    Andrew Wiggins has three years remaining on his deal where he makes 31 and 33 million in his last two seasons. Another team would have to be stupid to take his contract off the Warriors’ hands.

    What about sending him back to OKC? Get those picks back. Make them give us Dort too. That way the Rockets have the perfect guy to guard and frustrate Harden when they have to play against him.

    I’d prefer this over Ben Simmons actually. If this is possible....?!

    I think PG would be a good fit ...Wall-PG-Cousins.... is a good start to a rebuild.
    Include picks to help with rebuild of course.

    I feel the same way. I found myself switching to family guy just to get out of boredom.

    I have an almost 11 year old who is super into basketball. He could win many NBA trivia contests, and also plays.

    Even he's like "all Harden does is dribble for 20 seconds than take an impossible step back". It's tough to have a son who prefers GSW or Nuggets style... but then I'm also proud of him for that, lol

    Don't get it twisted, though... he's definitely worked on step back jumpers in the driveway a lot, lol.

    Harden's great... his "way" is a way that certainly works for him, and i so wish it would have ultimately worked here. Heck, if he stays, and ADJUSTS his game even slightly, the way Silas probably wants, i'd be SUPER bullish on THIS team.

    But it is what it is. Idgaf what happens. I'll be watching either way...

    There is no win now with trading Harden. It’s either stay competitive and recoup some assets or tear the whole thing down and rebuild. And to be honest they’re kinda stuck with only the first option considering our current roster and the packages teams interested have to offer.

    What is "Stay competitive"?? Contenders ? Top 4 seed ? Playoff team ? In the hunt for the 8 seed ?

    I don't see any deal that they are anything more than "in the hunt for the 8 seed".

    Basically what they were before Harden got here .... 42-42. Never bad enough to get a top lotto pick , never good enough to win anything of consequence.


    What sucks is that because of the picks owed to OKC , tanking it up is risky .... When Morey made that deal , the lotto rules would have guaranteed he kept those picks with the worst record , now that's not the case.


    We're stuck in that same purgatory Les had us mired in not allowing Morey to tank it up.

    I can only think this is all due to Tillman.

    If our current team minus Harden was elsewhere, it seems like he would definitely be open to playing there.

    Hou: Murray(den), MPJ(den), Turner(ind), Thybule(phi)

    Ind: Harris(den), Gordon(hou), Bradley(phi), 2-1sts(phi)

    Den: Simmons(Phi), Oladipo(ind), Scott (phi)

    Phi: Harden(hou)

    Maybe more picks in the mix somewhere to level it out? Idk...just spit-balling here. If we gotta trade Harden this is the kind of return we need.

    If Wall regains form and Boogie is serviceable, we are a top 5 team in the NBA. Harden knows that.
