    My fear is he will run the team the same way he runs his restaurants, all show and no go. Always trying to create perceived value instead of substance.

    Maybe OKC needs him to stay below us in the standings.

    lol, that’s never gonna happen...if the Rockets were to ever buy out Dipo then L’s all around for the whole front office...that would be embarrassing

    Dipo will never get bought out

    No one is asking coach to make this a playoff team. We are just asking him to make better decisions with his roster. If something is not working, then don't be stubborn and double down on it.

    I understand we don't have all the talent in the world right now, but the Rockets are not buying into this system of movement he sold to us during the preseason. Even James Harden, adapted to this movement offense, yet we have John "Self Anointed Rockets Franchise Player" Wall not even pretending to run coach's system.

    Silas deserves criticism because he definitely should have never stopped playing Mason Jones. Now he lost his confidence. He should have never attempted to make Ben a creator (the guy was almost out of the league until the Rockets came calling to park him on the 3 point line and revive his career). Now he lost his confidence as well. PJ Tucker should have never been moved from his corner spot.

    Boogie Cousins was doing some stupid **** on the court too. Why didn't coach use him similar to Nikola Jokic instead and park his ass on the top of the key and allow him to use his passing skills to his advantage?

    I'll give coach a chance, but this roster is absolutely miserable to watch. The losing doesn't bother me, it is the way we lose that bothers the hell out of me. We shouldn't be this damn bad either.

    Just a 'bit confused at him being upset that he was going to be a back up center. How, at his age/injuries did he expect to be a starter somewhere?

    He could be a decent back up for some teams, but that's about it. Him wanting to be a starter just blows my mind. Wish for nothing but the best for him though.

    At this point, I'd settle for a little perceived value on the Rockets.

    I was replying to the post that said Tilman is more intent on creating perceived value than building something of substance.

    Right now, there's zero substance, so even a modicum of perceived value would be an improvement.

    Rockets just using that as excuse to waive him.

    Tim MacMahon special. From Tilly's ass to Timmy's mouth.

    Timmy McMahon is Tillman’s little lapdog for a nice hit job

    This is never going to die.

    Timan Fertitta wanted Chris Paul traded long before Westbrook had even asked for a trade. Tilman complained Paul was always hurt and a terrible contract.

    Tilman is the reason Chris Paul isn’t a Rocket. Tilman went on national television and said he is the reason the trade happened.

    In a separate interview Daryl Morey said the same thing.

    The Rockets with Harden and Morey were trying very hard to add Butler to Harden AND Paul... that is something Morey said as well.

    That plenty of fans are hyped about the g league head case, or that we are some how a play off team with a healthy wood.

    Apparently you do in Silasland and Stoneville.

    The press conference today made it pretty clear that Silas feels bad for Cousins and likes him, but he wasn’t going to play him anymore.

    Tilman thinks the fans are stupid.

    This is the same crap he did with MDA and Harden and WB.

    Another article fed to McMahon by Tilman and a couple of ass kissers in the front office.

    Tilman always has to make sure the player/employee that leaves is labeled as the bad guy.

    What an insecure POS.

    “We are going to guarantee Cousins because we want players around the league to know we take care of our players.”

    “He (Cousins) has done everything we have asked.”

    .... (Cousins leaves)

    “Quick, get McMahon on the horn and make sure we smear Cousins”
