    I'm starting to think we need a The Truth About the CP3 Trade thread stickied for the next few years.

    Just because Tillman also wanted CP3 gone doesn't exclude from the fact that Harden wanted him gone. I know the excuses. It's lame.

    Harden wanting CP3 gone and Tillman wanted CP3 gone aren't mutually exclusive sentiments.

    So when I say Harden wanted CP3 gone, that is accurate.

    Not even bottom 5 in turnovers per game. We're in good shape.

    This is the ClutchFans equivalent to the Hitler rule: Using Steph Curry to make your point means you've already lost the argument.

    Dude the BEDROCK of the Rockets Championship team's offense was the ISO on the left block. You can spin it however you want but Dream parked his ass on that left block and everyone reacted from there. They mixed some pick & roll action in but that was about it save for throwing it to Drexler in 95.

    Well, I'm sure every fanbase has that guy though. We have that guy, but we also have guys that just didn't believe Harden had the mentality to win championships. I think the market size dictates that too, that's their only team. I think they are going to be more forgiving but you can see they still wonder if he's capable of leading them to a ring.

    Yeah, the 'fraud' is way past silly as Harden is an all time great and people should realize that and appreciate that, but I don't think that's even close to being most of the fanbase. I think it's just a vocal few that get that toxic with it...and these guys I know are hibernating until the post-season.

    I feel like most of the fanbase loved Harden though and a good portion of it, like the Stotts thread there on the Blazers forum, just wanted to see the offense look a little differently. I don't think it's much different from Texan fans that wanted Watson to use his TEs more...but then it gets into the area of "Well is it the coach's strategy or is the player just doing what he wants..." where a lot of the arguing comes from.

    Difference is Morey had that under control, Tillmam stepped in and ruined it.

    I would think he/she would stop after Harden broke up with him

    I used Kobe too...let me go find a quote from Karl Malone or Dirk to really bring it home.

    "Hi, I'm John Stockton..."
    "...and I'm Karl Malone..."
    "...and we're here on ClutchFans to prove why your argument is weak."

    Dude you can GTFO of here with that strawman ****, there were numerous people saying it right along with saying we needed a 'culture" change.
