    This Blazers game shouldn't be a surprise to anyone and nobody should be in a bad mood watching it. The Rockets as they are constructed were always destined to fail. I saw it at the end of the 14-15 season, I saw it in preseason, and now everybody has seen it yet fans still keep hopes that this team will magically "turn it around".

    The team is rotten from head to toe and needs to be COMPLETELY worked over. Let's start from the head:

    Leslie Alexander:
    -Is a complete ghost to Houston, no interaction with fans

    -Made terrible choices regarding team image to make a profit
    -Removing our best jerseys because they were "synonymous with losing" and put in "flying dildo" jerseys/rebrand which weren't even our colors

    -Rode the Chinese market and rebranded the team again with Yao Ming
    -Hired costume designer to make the current jerseys that had super wide sleeves
    -to this day has still kept the Chinese brand and refuses to change it

    -Has approved the worst jerseys of all time in 2016 (grey checkerboard and McDonald's clutch city (WTF?) )

    -Has fired good coaches (Adelman) and kept horrible ones (McHale/Bickerstaff)

    -Does not work as a team with the entire organization. People are on different pages and the GM has an absurd amount of power


    Daryl Morey:
    -Does not draft well (Royce White, Terrance Jones) and struggles to develop players (McDaniels, Canaan, Motiejunas)

    -Has way too much power as GM, makes coaches his puppet (McHale, Bickerstaff)
    -Implemented a losing style to basketball with his dork affinity for analytics
    -Demands players to play "free" and jack up as many 3 pointers as they want
    -Disregarded a play book, offensive sets and ball movement
    -Encourages heavy ISO for the one man show James Harden
    -Has made no attempts to implement a successful system (how did the Warriors get so good again? :rolleyes:)

    -Treats players like assets (Houston is no longer a FA destination)


    James Harden:
    -Known for having the most disgusting game in the NBA
    -Played great in the 14-15 regular season
    -In 2016 now relies heavy on fooling the refs with flopping
    -Has no 3pt shot
    -Has no midrange shot
    -Struggles to finish at the rim

    -Is not a leader and creates issues with teammates
    -Can never take the blame
    -Constant excuses
    -Quits on his team/coaches often

    -Got a $280M paycheck and decided to stop pursuing greatness
    -Partied his entire off season and became fat
    -Did "loser" commercials for TACO BELL and TROLLI GUMMY WORMS (smh)
    -Did not work on his game once
    -Said often that he is the best player in the NBA and deserved MVP

    -Has choked every playoff season in his career
    -Quit on his team in the WCSF Clipper series
    -Failed twice to close out 2 winnable games in the WCF (Could have actually had an amazing shot to the NBA finals)

    -HORRIBLE defensively, does not care/try to defend
    -some losses have been due to his defense


    Look at all that bad.. It's so much that you should stop caring. The Rockets need to be turned around 180° and that CAN happen. So my advice is to not get mad at this scrub team, it was never going anywhere in the first place.

    We should put our hopes in the offseason where we have a chance to become elite, and to do that these 3 guys need to change and make sacrifices. Here's to next season

    you forgot the part where Refs hate Dwight and Rockets probably because of Harden's trickery.

    We're still in 7th place. It's just one game and nothing has changed.

    JB said we're going to figure this out and keep working it at

    Harden said we'll figure it out, just trying to get his teammates ready for the playoff

    :( Its just one game! We have such ungrateful and ****ty fans wow omg the rockets will turn it around and win one game within their next 3, they always have way to cheer for your team man. Harden is the goat offensive player in the NBA just look at the stats frequently posted by jordnnn and aeliottt I mean who cares about whats obvious at first sight and the results, you have to be a good fan and support players who don't give a crap and are uninterested. :(

    I still don't understand how you can think that he drafts well.

    There is a reason that the first draft class when he was here was the best one. CD---> Scola and Adelman ---> Brooks.

    There are 29 other teams you could root for. I'm sure the Warriors bandwagon is still looking for new fans.
