    Russ was a hard fit to put next to a center like Capela and was owed more money with a longer contract. We gave up two first round picks and two pick swaps. Even if you think Russ was better than CP3, which only was true if you thought CP3 was unhealthy forever, he wasn't worth all of those draft assets. Only short-sighted people would mortgage the future for Russell Westbrook.

    Biggest thing I took note of was. "If he ends up back in the league, I think that he’ll probably end up in the East Coast."

    Morey will be back just not with the Rockets. He will build the team he sees fit, no interference. Guess better this way before Tilman blames Morey for his failures. Good GOD!

    tillmen is lying to everyone, all talk no action. even in the unlikely event that he asks for advice, pretty sure maurley will give tillmen and his kids the worst advice like hiring marc jackson

    It was a rough contract but the Westbrook contract is worse and we paid first round picks to make that swap... for a player whose (declining) skill set doesn't fit in the modern NBA. So we trade our center and convince ourselves he can feast at the rim with a spaced offense. Brilliant. We've dug the whole deeper and deeper and deeper and still some fans feel compelled to justify it. But i just dont see how you can. How is anything currently happening superior to the strategy of replicating or iterating on the 2018 roster balance.

    YOU make that trade. Don't speak for anyone else. In fact do yourself a favor and read Clutch's reaction to the trade... or any number of Clutchfans in the trade thread. That response is the opposite of 10/10. Maybe more like 3/10. That was before we had seen Russ throw one pass (or shot) out of bounds in Rockets red.

    There’s no way that’s anything more than wishful thinking by Tilman

    He can not follow his own advise: shut up and listen.

    I hate to admit it but you can already see the media has been waiting to pound the Rockets organization and will be the butt of the league

    Tilman not selling the only business making him money, lmao.

    Not in a million years. He's going to pass this team down to his son, Tilman Jr.

    It was confirmed to me that Tillman was an idiot when I saw that mural. His stupid book as well.

    Nope, and I wouldn’t have Harden play part time GM either.

    And I do not care about his friendship.

    If you trade CP3, at least get younger stars like Michael Porter, Booker.....someone you can look forward to in 4 years

    We'll be nostalgic for the days of being take show villains.

    We won't even be discussed other than as punchlines for the next 5 years.

    Sure Tillman could call Daryl and ask for advice but he won't be taking it like how he probably didn't listen to Daryl about keeping Paul. While I'm not in the camp that thought the trade was a complete disaster at the time I'm at least in the group that didn't like that Tillman forced Morey's hand into making the trade happen. The last time a Rockets owner influenced a player acquisition we ended up having to attached a 1st Round pick to the point guard's neck just to get him out of town in Jeremy Lin. Weird how that scenario played out again years later with Paul except this time we didn't get any cap room flexibility and also lost more picks.

    I hope when Daryl sees "TBag" on his phone he hits the red decline button.

    Um...

    So Morey definitely just saying he doesn’t want to work for you but your comment is “I’m gonna call his ass” on decisions, as though you’ve been letting him make the basketball decisions? (When it’s apparent to us, your fans, that you aren’t letting him make the basketball decisions)

    Man. Is this the karmic cost for OBrien? Morey goes too? Genuinely how bad is it gonna be when Morey isn’t standing in the way of your bad decisions? How do you even run a team this badly?!?! Bone headed jabroni shifty smiley tooth phony sonuvabitch insurance man Tollman Fertooty.

    Remember harden doesn’t show up in the playoffs. I think everybody should see by now he just doesn’t have it in him!
    Lol at westbrook
    “Improve the bench” how ? You have no assets to trade for
    “Silas or JVG” doesn’t guarantee mean it’s going to work. Your making sound like it’s simple but I don’t see us winning one anytime soon and definitely not with Harden! I don’t see the hunger from harden at all!
