    that's fine if they didn't overpay Ariza but at least get a lot better replcements (for Airza and Luc) at the same price

    they were one win away and they didn't even try to get better

    You notice the guys who abhorred Harden have literally disappeared off the face of the earth now that he's gone.

    The pringles, the LorneMalvo's, the Asian Sensation's, the LosPollosHermanos, etc.

    Credit to ashleyem and fchowd for actually sticking around.

    I think the problem was there wasn’t really anything out there comparable to Ariza which is I guess the whole point of Trevor’s asking price in the first place. I agree - I didn’t want to overpay him at his age either but there was little left that year that I can remember

    if you are really serious about winning a chip then you overpay.. I guess Tilman wasn't that serious

    Doesn’t matter if he’s serious or not. He broke AF as an owner. Not that he doesn’t want to over pay. He simply can’t.

    Les Alexander helped him get the loan. Tilman is the poster boy for paper money

    Anyone got the link to the thread that claimed Harden with the current lineup of Rockets players = title contenders?

    I need some good laughs.

    Harden single handedly kept this team relevant for 8 straight years with godly seasons that we will probably never see again. You don’t know what you got till it’s gone

    Hard to believe that we went from a 65 win team to this garbage in less then 3 years

    B-b-b-b-b-but this team would’ve been a contender if Harden didn’t quit and averaged 40/8/8

    Why wouldn't you pay him what he wanted? We were already over the cap we couldn't make the team better in any other way. I understand you don't want him taking up 15 million of your cap if you are under, but that was not the case for us. His salary had no impact to what we were trying to do. Letting him walk was the nail in be coffin. Proved that ownership wasn't willing to do what it took it win it all.
