    Boogie lacks self awareness.

    Probably why he and Wall are such good friends, they have that in common.

    Silas being oblivious is worrisome.

    Stone has said otherwise, he traded him to strongly consider him as foundational to rebuild.

    And Silas insisted on Oladipo as key acquisition in Harden trade.

    This could finally explain why Wall iced Wood so often.

    That was before the foot problem. Don't be surprised if Victor gets bought out.

    So Boogie was not just a bitch.

    He was a lying bitch.

    Happy to be 6th man my ace.

    I feel disrespected.

    If that happens, both Stone and Silas need to be held accountable.

    What is Silas oblivious to?

    Man why you always going in on Silas?

    No coach could be doing great with this cluster****.

    Gonna need more than that.

    What did he say exactly?

    Things get lost in translation.

    What pod was it, I would like to hear it myself, not that it really matters.

    Another player calling Timmy a liar.

    Meh. This was never meant to be.

    We took a flyer on a formerly great player to see what he had left. Compare his play this year to highlights of his earlier years and it's obvious he's lost most of his quickness and nearly all of his lift. Back in the day, he was impossible to guard; now he's not good enough to expect starter minutes, especially on a mostly switching-defense team.

    Low risk, high reward. By guaranteeing his contract, Stone is trying to set a tone that his culture will be different than the "assets"-driven one that Morey (unfairly) was known for. Convincing Tilman might have taken some effort, but "I guarantee you won't pay any luxury tax this year" seems to soothe any Fertitta wounds.

    I honestly am struggling to find a reason why any team would pick him up.

    Everyone has seen enough at this point. His on court production has dipped to replacement level or lower, he is a liability with his temper in high leverage situations and I’d find it hard to believe he’s regarded as a guy to keep around as the “locker room” guy.

    Sometimes injuries are just too much to overcome.

    Makes you wonder who is feeding Tim MacMahon his information doesn’t it. Who are these anonymous sources that are always sh*ting on the players? He covers our team for f*cks sake. Is he a reliable source of information in regards to the Rockets or not? This shouldn’t be debatable. Get this dude tf out of here.
