    I might be wrong about Morey. Stone sucks

    no, the Rockets traded Harden for the right to suck and possibly keep their top 4 protected draft pick...it’s a gamble, but if we keep it, Cade, Green or Mobley will be the real prize from the Harden trade

    Maybe... maybe not. If the Nets don't have to rebuild in two years it's likely a pretty terrible haul for a perennial MVP player.

    So yeah, the only value in the trade is the right to suck and the real value is our own 2022 tank pick. 2021 is a real coin flip.

    it’s basically up to chance now...if we lose our pick, then it will be an unmitigated disaster and a huge setback

    Would have been better if Harden wouldn't have demanded one single team as the destination choice.... People think the Brooklyn trade was because that was the best offer lol?

    all that matters to our owner

    just think if les alexander was still the rockets owner, their is a strong chance both harden and cp3 are still rockets. Keep in mind tilman gutted the 2018 roster by not adding decent wings to our team. Morey would have turned ariza into winslow or oubre
