    He definitely isn't a family man.

    I think Russ underestimated Harden's lifestyle. Beal and Russ seem much more compatible off the court.

    PLEASE ATTACH RUI. He is my favorite non Rocket.

    Not excitement but relief in getting a real floor general for a dunce.. If contracts are equally terrible, why not....

    Westbrook has had MUCH better teammates than Wall.

    When you're talking about the two worst contracts in the NBA, there's going to be a LOT of bad and very little good.

    Washington is desperate so they can give a pick.
    Also maybe the Rockets aka Tilman have delusions that with Wall they can convince Harden to change his mind.
    LOL

    Aside of Durant? I mean, he went to the playoffs a couple of times, one with George, one without another star -> in the West.

    How many times did Wall made the playoff with Beal -> in the East?

    They can roll the dice and see if Harden will change his mind this year. Once again, as been stated by multiple individuals, we don't have to trade Harden. The only problem with keeping him another year is that he may not be as valuable next year as he is this offseason, so we may not get the value we want if we were to wait another year.

    Do it!
    John Wall can actually shoot 3's better than Eric Gordon, how much that even counts.

    And John Wall is 2 years younger than Chuckbrook.

    I feel like Harden would vibe really well with Wall BUT how was Walls defense last he played?

    Wall was on the decline even before his injury - and he’s under contract thru 2023. Gross

    Because this move ultimately feels like Stone admitting defeat to Harden.

    You trade Russ for Wall and a pick to pickup and extra asset and then whatever you get for James to just accumulate as many picks as you possibly can.

    Hopefully John Wall resurrects his career ala Chris Paul and then you flip him for more assets.

    Pre-injury Wall was better than Westbrick is now (not saying a lot), but he hasn’t played in years and is on a terrible contract.

    at least what this leak shows us is that the Rockets are really more focused to first trade Westbrook than Harden.

    Bill Simmons said the opposite but we will see.

    I can't believe I had Wall on my fantasy team...
