    Anybody else surprised like I am to still find they enjoy watching the current Rockets a last place team?
    Of course we all can see the benefit of being last or close to last for this year and next.
    If we are still last or close to last in a couple of years I suppose maybe not.

    vast majority of the games are boring AF with a plethora of bricks and us getting stomped out and pantsed in public...there is hardly anything enjoyable about this season, it’s just something u have to swallow and deal with because it’s what needed to happen and what was gonna happen anyways post-Harden

    this is right up there with the 05-06 season when it comes to the games just being boring, but at least 05-06 had Yao and T-Mac for some of it

    if we go through this abomination of a season just to end up losing our pick then

    Losers enjoy horrible teams that continue to lose and play horrendously. If folks actually find enjoyment in terrible basketball and putting L's on the board, then your priorities are jacked up

    I watch the KPJ highlights on YouTube after most games. That’s about it.

    I’ve only watched this season through game clips of Wood and Porter on Twitter and checking tankathon.com for updates on the standings.

    Those of us who grew up playing RPGs understand how to find joy in going through hours and hours of suffering in order to build a real winner later on. Just revel in the little things and know that all the pain is for something bigger in the future.

    I enjoy watching my teams play. Win or lose. I enjoy it MORE when we win, and when we win it means more games (playoffs) to enjoy. I’m not surprised that I enjoy watching my team. That’s what makes us fanatics.

    It's super fun to watch young players develop. Makes everything that much sweeter later on when you are winning.

    The negative nancies in here will be negative no matter what we do.

    In general, I don't watch games, only highlights of wins, so I haven't seen a lot of Rockets basketball this year.

    No. I mean... Yes.

    I mean... This is not a fun team to watch. So I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    No way anyone would watch these games without a forum to laugh along... I enjoy the CF forum ... The game just adds visual

    Thank the basketball gods for Clutchfans and many many of you CFers, but not all of you. (If you're concerned that you might be who I mean by "but not all of you", just know that if you're preparing that dickhead comment to shine it's dark light upon there world... that's you.)

    Yep. I’d rather watch a young team lose than an old team that goes .500 any day of the week.
