    Cool. Glad we were able to get the thoughts of one guy, 2 kids, and 3 twitter posts. That definitely changed things for me.

    i know
    Most people want millionaires to speak their mind on a highly produced television show

    but that’s what real fans are compared to pretty much ... actors

    This shows real fans don’t want to connect with real opinions
    They see people on tv everyday and it convinces them that someone screaming on tv everyday is right
    This is great for the network and advertisers who pay them

    no such thing as "real" rockets fans. they are a myth, mystical, but if you look hard enough you might be lucky enough to see one sitting in the lower bowl.

    Real Rockets fans or delusional Rockets fans? Real Rockets Fans don't want their team to suck. Delusional Rockets fans think a guy of Harden's Caliber will just fall on our laps. The delusional fans probably think if we do get a star they'll actually stick around to help win us a ring while Fertitta is the owner.
    Let's see how long Woods sticks around.

    We used to move down to lower bowl at half time when we were in the summit to fill up seats. My favorite was the Big Mac attack

    Yeah, that first guy likes the trade because now Harden can "get that ring". What a diehard ROCKETS fan.

    Real Rockets fans aren't happy to see their franchise accept 50 cents on the dollar for a player who is unhappy because he is only making $15,000 a minute and not number in a game.

    It's okay for them to have their opinion, just as I have mine. Not sure what you're going for here, but why come to place with 1000's of Rockets fans and tell us that these are the "real fans"? Why can't they just be fans? I

    Also, what does a tv shows have to do with my comment? Again, the guy likes the trade so Harden can get a ring. Sounds like a Harden fan. Maybe change the title of your thread to "Real Harden Fans react to Harden getting traded".

    Well Channel 2 news in Houston think they are Rockets fans

    Have you not noticed that the majority of the board only cares and reacts to television personalities?

    The worst thing about this trade is, we won't truly know if we got fleeced until all the picks covert.

    At least the next 5-7 years when we'll be superbad, we'll see who the true Rocket fans are who still post on CF.

    I do not think fleeced is the word.

    There are GMs that can find borderline Allstars in the later part of the lottery or the 1st round.

    It's a gift.

    Kawhi wouldn't be a 15th pick if there weren't so many mediocre drafters among GMs.

    IMO the Nets had to do something but now they have to find enough Defense to win titles because Harden and Irving are not the best defending superstars.

    Many CFers love the board, the forum. They'll stick around.

    Some are here for the Astros, the politics or just some recreational thing in the Hangout.

    I know a few whose priority isn't NBA basketball at all.
