    This narrative is dumb... if we gather agreement on this, Houston is doomed. They’re the world champions even before KD even came to the picture. I decline this line of thinking.

    Stephen is secretly rooting for Chris Paul and James Harden to win a Championship, at least win one.

    Why is Stephen so emotional about calling out Chris Paul, this old man needs to step up, or have regrets the rest of his life and have nightmares, waking up thinking about the Warriors even at 80 years old in cold sweat.

    Same to James Harden and the rest of Rockets will have nightmares even after retirement.

    Jerry West still thinks about those 12 NBA Finals losses, even as a old man now, that is so sad to hear too.

    He's right and the Rockets know it too which is why they will win the series.

    Apparently people forget what Warriors were like before Durant... Basically same core with same ideology... In fact they seem to be more deadly without him..

    He's right. Rockets always come with excuses for losing. He touched my wrist. He didn't give me space. The ref didn't do this. His foot was out of bounds.
    How about not putting yourselves in the position to be effected by such things.
    Sometimes I don't know if I'm watching a men's basketball game or a #metoo moment.

    The excuse, if they lose, would be that the Warriors are a better team.

    I think the Warriors starting five, even without Durant, could still be better than the Rockets.

    So even without Durant and a garbage bench they are better? Isn't harden supposed to be a lot better than Curry now?

    Honestly, I'd heavily consider blowing the team up if they lose this series. If this roster, as constructed, can't win under these circumstances, then they will never win. It's a sad truth, but it's a truth nonetheless.

    In theory Houston should win the next two games. The Rockets are deeper and have the best overall player left in the series. Also, this is not the same GSW roster that won 73 games w/o Durant. In 2015-16, the Splash Bros. were in their prime and they had a deep bench. I feel if the Rockets come out with high intensity in both games and are constantly putting pressure on GSW at the rim then the 3 point shooting of GSW should suffer over 48 minutes. Of course, we all know what happened against the Spurs w/o Kawhi, so I could totally see us get blown out on our own floor. The life of a Rockets fan.

    Truncated to just complete the thread hyperbole for all y'all and SAS.

    If the Rockets don't win the next two games, the organization will never win another basketball game in the history of human civilization.

    Know your history. Once upon a time, this franchise looked a whoooole lot worse in going down 1-3 to the Barkley-led Suns. Everyone, and probably your own fathers to hear you talk, was calling us Choke City.
