    NBA leaning all the way in to Luka to supplant the Rockets in the South West division.

    Haven't watched a game outside of the Rockets since game 7 riggate. Don't plan on changing that this year.

    I think the NBA and Adam Silver anticipated the Rockets trading Harden and Westbrook which is why they didn’t schedule them for Christmas. Why would anyone want to watch a rebuilding team.

    Never cared for Christmas games. Forced tradition I'll be happy to ignore this year just like those dumb nipple cookies that show up on tables and counters at holiday gatherings. [​IMG]

    Boogie vs Embiid... Simmons vs Westbrook... Harden and Tobias Harris scoring buckets... what's so overrated about it? What's cheap?

    On the bright side; Rocket players don't have to work on Christmas and spend time with family & friends.

    Dallas took the Rockets spot. That is Luka vs Lebron

    Rockets don't make the cut this year with the Harden/Westbrook drama. That simple.

    Last time I checked James Harden doesn’t look like RJ Barrett
    But @YOLO disagrees

    Can you blame the NBA? The Rockets got 30-pieced by a g-league Warriors team. That's with Harden and Westbrook wanting to be on the team. Imagine the beatdown that they would get in what I'd imagine be the 3rd game of the season for Houston.

    The Rockets right now are the biggest wildcard of the season right. They could finish anywhere from 2nd seed to the 15th seed. More than likely the finish 5th-8th, but you get the idea of how dysfunctional the the team is due to the Harden and Westbrook rumors/truths.

    76ers not being on schedule is bigger disrespect. Pelicans don't deserve that spot at all.
