    I'm worried that by the time the Rockets are competitive again, Wood's contract will be up and he will be on another team.

    How dare you insinuate that Eric Gordon is not having fun??

    not even gonna lie, I watched the rockets because of harden. He had a style that I had never seen before. I enjoyed watching this guy break the game and have the nba step in and change rules because of him. He was probably the most unpredictable rockets player I have ever seen. You never knew what you were gonna see that night. Like the game in Utah a few years back when he was 1 steal away from a 40 point 5x5 statline and that was on the 2nd half of a back to back. Some of the things he could do on the court were mind blowing. Harden might not be popular with casuals and some Rockets fans but the guy is one of the heels since z2010 LeBron

    None, absolutely no reason to. It's an exercise in futility. Personally, I hate watching bad basketball and it doesn't get any worse than this. Because I'm a Rockets fan, I watch the beginning of every game until they start to unravel halfway through the first quarter. Sometimes I make it to the end of the 1st or even halfway through the second before I just go do something else because it's just not worth my time. I would not recommend watching a single game anyone else other than hardcore fans of the Rockets or fans of the opposing team.

    I’ve watched the good teams and the bad teams every game I can since the early 90s and seeing the team quit like this is hard to watch. Its got to the point I haven’t watched a bunch of the recent games. The heart is gone. When Wood gets back I feel like his skill, effort and want to will be contagious and whatever trades will have happened and they can hopefully show some heart again even if we’re not playing for the playoffs. Make Rockets basketball watchable again.

    Inertia?

    It's a hard habit to kick after all these years.

    see it's not even about the losing. it's losing by 20+ every game while not even developing any young players.

    even the process 76ers were vaguely competitive. this is on a whole 'nother level.

    I'll watch too. But it'll suck more than any other day I've been a Rockets fan.

    And I still have Spurs/Mavs fans in my ear every freaking week.

    There isn’t one until we get wood back and the g-league ends and we call up guys .

    right now , you’ll watch if the other team has players you like or you have nothing better to do .

    bill and Matt have stepped up a bit . Carefree and silly works when you are down 20 routinely . Can we bring back Clyde ? He prolly hasn’t watched a game all season , it will be gold !

    if we can get more sexual wood / religious puns that would be great too . But we are on our refraction period .

    but I’ve been averaging about a quarter these last 5-6 games

    Nah, you’re remembering wrong. The process Sixers once started a year 0-18 and won 10 games getting annihilated most nights. This is what tanking looks like when u have a bunch of vets who dgaf instead of a bunch of young players who are trying to stick in this league and establish themselves. They’ll still get stomped every night in the end tho.
