    The ball movement crowd has to eat crow because for one thing there was no different ball movement and they were saying this supposed movement was better than winning.

    There was a whole thread with them crowing during the 7 game win streak.

    So its more frustrating getting to the 2nd round than getting blown out every night and not making the playoffs?

    Really?

    He is a basketball savant and that's what I think is sorley underappreciated.

    If he had not had his issues in Houston he would hands down be MVP leader, which is gonna make all the more sweet when he wins it this year.

    A huuuuuuge FU!

    My scorn is more towards the theme of the OP, mocking us that dared question the reliance on ISO.

    Otherwise I agree, Harden played his part in the demise of a Rockets era along with ownership, front office, and MDA.

    If TF was about winning, he wouldnt have flipped Allen to CLV. What a stupid move.

    I like ball movement AND wins. Of course if you are going after a top draft pick, then I don’t really need the wins. Things will work out in the end. The Rockets are doing what they need to do after Harden gave up on the team.

    So where is the ball movement? Stats and eye test shows there is less movement then under harden and MDA.
    No wins and less ball movement. Charming

    He wanted out before the season started. I had hopes for Wall but after watching him still unable to shoot and Boogie limp, there was no way Harden was going to waste a year here. No one with Harden's skill set in their right minds would stay. We also got a Rookie coach? Yah... no thanks!

    I would definitely keep an eye on boston. If we really don't think we can hit a home run and get a player Cade Cunningham then let's see if Boston is willing to let Jaylen Brown go for something we have. Heck I'd be willing to do John Wall and Eric Gordon for kemba and brown. Move porter back up and package walker out. He's probably an easier contract to move.

    CP3. Imagine if we kept CP3. Of course I would rather have a Harden/CP3 backcourt right now. We would be contenders.

    Keep on crying bro. Just find another team. You're wasting your time if you think we're gonna get better right away when your star player sabotages his own team and value to play with his buddy.

    We're lucky we even got unprotected picks but if you think the Nets are now going to win 3 straight chips you're just dumb.

    But there is no ball movement?

    Numerous people to some means "Clutchfans" to a lot of the Harden people.

    Look at how many people use "Clutchfans" like it's them against the entire forum.

    And it's definitely a strawman because their argument was never that simple, in fact, some of them are in here telling you why they wanted to move on from Harden and its still being ignored.

    I also had to laugh at Udonis Haslem



    How’s “Heat culture” working out right now? Harden’s club escapades got so overplayed. You’d swear he’s at some club every single night and never worked on his game :rolleyes:

    I wish more people took this view. I think the window was nearly closed once the Warriors beat us without KD. Then once Butler decided he was going to South Beach the window was jammed tight.

    We weren't going to be able to put another superstar around Harden, didn't have the assets.
