    What he really sucks at is getting them to stay. He is definitely terrible at managing egos along with his.

    I'm going to believe Harden being "locked in with the Rockets" until he says different.

    Maybe I'm being naive but I refuse to let Tilman off the hook for this disaster of an offseason by shifting the negative narrative towards Harden OR any of the players.

    This shitstorm is Tilly's doing, period.

    I agree, this team has passed it's peak and retooling looks difficult with TF. But, we're in for some dark days unless we get a young all star in exchange. It would be hard for me to go back to the days of having a veteran "scrappy" team with no current or future championship aspirations.

    I think Morey did a good job of letting Harden feel like he was playing GM. In the past, we pretty much always made the right personnel decisions given current information. It was only after TF came that the Morey was forced to follow through with moves that didn't make as much sense.

    You get a young all star in and slowly build around him the right way. Hopefully, they'll be cheap enough for a while to prevent Tilman from meddling.

    I believe Harden will play his heart out as he always does, even if he has asked to be traded. But I also think it's inevitable. He's not going to want to go down on TIlman's sinking ship even though it seems that he loves Houston and badly wants to win here. He has to get a ring to solidify himself as an all-time great. It's likely that it won't happen here.

    One more year doesn't mean one more year, if the organization could get something for him at the trade deadline, they would be stupid not to do it.

    But yeah, Harden is the most laid back athlete, others would have already left.

    That way it is going to drag out a little while unless something unexpected happens.

    Expect Westbrook, Durant and others being in Harden's ear throughout the process.

    You don't need insider access for something like this. Harden was the one who pushed for the trade to bring his homeboy in, you think he will be happy if the team ships WB out? Crazy if Fertits didnt realize that as well thats just common sense.

    To be completely honest though IMO it is time to let Harden go and chase a ring somewhere. We aint winning **** with a rookie GM, coach and half the team in turmoil. Trade WB to NYC, trade Harden somewhere for high picks and lets jumpstart the rebuilding process. Lakers just got Schroeder they are gonna destroy the league with schroeder/rondo backcourt and AD/Lebron front court.

    Well they arent doing it unless they got a monstrous package as has been reported.

    I wanna see what they get for Westbrook, before we decide to trade Harden. Best be sure, if we suck before the deadline, Harden will be gone.

    There isn’t a GM who values Harden more so than Daryl Morey. I love Harden. I love the Rockets. I love this city. We have hardly any draft picks for the future. Once Harden drops off we will be irrelevant and his value won’t be any higher than it is now. Westbrook wants out. We should break it up man. Build for the future, acquire young assets and draft picks. We gave it a good ass run. And having harden made it feel like we had a shot every damn year since he’s been here.

    So Harden demanded Westbrook leave because he doesn't want to play with him but also demanded he leave because he won't play without him....seems legit!
