    Would be better if he pretended there were no critics at all.

    Silas seems like a wonderful person but he's not head coach material.

    who cares

    Where is Stone to take accountability? Who is the one who hired Silas and is apparently ok with everything that has gone on since? Who has a hand in practice and rotation decisions?

    “They don’t see me get on their ass in practice or film study.” :rolleyes:

    Do players fear you? Nah.
    Are players punished? Nah.
    What were the repercussions for Wood/Porter? A measly game.
    Are players punished for, say, defensive mishaps or not getting back? Nah.
    Did Jalen Green say “There are no losses, just learning lessons.” Yes.
    “There's no losses with this team. It's either a win or it's a learning lesson, so tonight was a learning lesson.”
    Did John Wall say they/this team “gets away with **** they wouldn’t elsewhere”? Yes.
    Did you basically cry after one of your double-digit losing streaks? Yes.
    Are you the “good cop” to John Lucas’ “bad cop”? Yes.
    Will a new coach have to come in and try to break the losing habits and losing ways? Yes.

    You are a nice guy and that’s perfectly fine.

    Silas is right that the critics aren't at practice.
    There are hardly any practices - we've had like 4 this season

    Our media coverage is an absolute joke, you can tell they have discussed these questions ahead of time, and the top comment on every rockets IG post is always "fire silas" , so they see it, but think the people are stupid so this is how they address it. It really is insulting when the media does this. How many times did Silas say the word entertainment? This is not entertainment, if it were you'd actually be selling tickets and not have empty arenas and be one of the cheapest tickets on the road. Pistons rank 12th in attendance and the Rockets rank 28th, pretty awful entertainment that no one is buying.

    Pistons are 12th because their arena is big and seats almost 20,500…91% of tickets are being purchased for both the Rockets and Pistons so Tilman isn’t pressed about anything

    Silas: They don't see KPJ crying in my arms and wiping his tears on my chest. They don't see how much becoming the next James Harden means to this young man. They know nothing.

    Practice? We talking about practice?

    Who gives a F about what’s happening in practices? If whatever you practiced doesn’t show up in the real games, what’s the point?

    Asking all the right questions but the wrong target

    Tilman got u good.

    See how u are getting angry at Stone? It's the owner who has the final say, he hired stone + silas and gave him the orders on the direction of the franchise.

    The players are developing while we maintain draft position. Mission accomplished. That’s all I care about.
