    lol, this is so sad

    the guy who’s supposed to be selfish and a ball hog generated more assists than our entire team...we somehow have even less ball movement post-Harden, but I was always told that Harden was the problem and the one holding the offense back from resembling the 01-02 Kings

    You just broke my brain.

    Paul and Kyrie were traded about 3 months apart so we could have possibly had Kyrie.:eek:

    I don't think it would have worked out because I think Kyrie needed the Celtics exp to humble him and they would have probably been some friction about leadership but maybe they would have worked it out and won a chip and we would have been set for years?

    Its interesting to think how that 17-18 team would have been with Kyrie minus Harden.

    And then maybe Durant comes to Houston this year.:eek::D:(:mad:

    Even without much help, what Harden accomplished in Houston should be a positive and appreciated instead of a negative and derided.

    Harden loved Houston and his actions AND WORDS prove he loves Houston still.

    You wouldn't know this unless you've asked every person you've met if they're a Rockets fan

    How’s the Harden life treating u Steph? GS is the 9th seed, and only 2 games above .500, heading into the ASB.

    How come Steph’s “gravity” and off-ball movement has GS just 21st in offensive efficiency?

    imagine if Steph was here in Houston all these years instead of Harden having to carry these limited rosters

    How many years do we straight up not even make the playoffs with Steph instead of James? Steph would be ringless and the biggest choker in the league because he’s had many horrible playoff games that have gotten completely overlooked because his team was stacked enough to win regardless of his subpar play.

    I can’t wait. It’s time. Going to be a rough road ahead and lots more losses, but I’d rather watch Porter Jr. get up 18-20 shots than continue to be served the platter of dog sh** that we’ve been getting the past several weeks. I’ve felt no enjoyment watching Rockets games recently. There has been nothing to cheer for or to even be remotely optimistic about. This is at least something. Now they need to clear the desk so they can have playing time opportunities and replenish our asset pool.

    I've always said the only other player that you could replace Harden with and have success is Lebron, otherwise there isn't another superstar player that duplicate that success.

    I suspect that KPJ and Wall
    Will be best buds
    Or
    Worst enemies

    No in-between.

    But I thought the answer was yes that he could lead a team to the playoffs?

    When I play at Life Time Fitness, I ask.

    Nobody wears Rockets shirts except me. Everyone else is wearing Spurs/Mavs/Lakers gear.

    I've even seen Blazers fans.

    A lot of basketball fans just reward winning. All of my cousins from WA state called Supersonics their home team, but then bought Shaq/Hardaway jerseys from Orlando, Grant Hill jerseys from Detroit/Orlando... They were pissed to see supersonics leave the state, but found it incredibly stupid that they never supported their home team.

    I think Rockets moving to a different city doesn't sound like a bad idea if I'm the owner. Fans suck, don't show up to the games, and the speculative market only derives from the bandwagon fans who jump on and off for the winning/players. To any small-market fans, going to WCF twice is a tremendous feat. Rockets fans??? They think they live in LA, it's madness.

    One time an MVP player named Hakeem wanted to be traded. The Rockets swallowed their pride and did right by Hakeem. Hakeem won them 2 championships.

    Another time an MVP player named Harden wanted to be traded. And the idiot Rockets shipped him off for salary cap relief and some draft picks.

    Harden a player who had absolutely no visible weakness. Now is being touted as the MVP on a team that includes Irving and Durant.

    Rockets ownership messed up big time!

    Haha!! Never post on Clutchfans the very moment you wake up. With sleep still in my eyes, I typed clear the desk instead of clear the deck. Reminds me of the time Tracy McGrady said escapegoat on national television instead of scapegoat lol.
