    Well earned. Now let's see how the young guns stack up against NBA talent.

    I completely disagree. You are way off base here.

    major props to stone. a rookie gm ith a tough job of finding gems and now we have a direction and way forward after dropping to the last seed. Jalen Green is more obvious and touted and hopefulyl we got our star, but we can't over look stone finding Tate, KMJ, Sengun and whichever others. hes taking the best of finding hidden gems in morey and then nailing the rest and after a TERRIBLE year, we have our direction, a future to look forward to with a young, hungry, gritty team.

    LETS GO ROCKETS!

    A lot of them don’t want to like the team. Hoping these moves pan out and these harden fans will come around

    I’m a Morey and Harden fan. And I like it a lot.

    I am very happy with our offseason. And love the young pieces(quality and quantity) we have managed to acquire this quickly into the rebuild.

    I haven’t deluded myself into thinking we are ready to compete for any kind of play in or playoff spot this coming season but the direction we are headed appears to be very promising.

    When we traded for Harden I had this confident feeling of optimism that the next 5-10 years were gonna be ****ing awesome. And they were.

    I think we are headed for another really exciting 5-10 years.

    Me too. Still love Morey and Harden, but Houston obviously comes first. Super excited about our draft, our offseason, and the years to come.

    Selling Harden off for picks isn’t some masterstroke. Anyone could’ve done that. Swapping Westbrook for Eastbrook, not an overly convincing job.

    it wasn’t until the draft where I believed in Stone a bit more. Picking green was a no brainer too, but getting Sengun the way he did and still nabbing 2 players that look better than your average mid-20s picks? THATS the masterstroke.

    Time will tell on Theis and how this team continues to develop. How he addresses the 60 million locked up into Wall and Gordon. How he addresses Wood’s contract and whoever from the young group that’s earns more.

    I'll settle for being number one on some list if I'm not going to win a championship.
