    Meh...

    He busted his ass every year he was here and we never missed the playoffs.

    I think he's entitled to be upset and want change.

    My ego is small enough not to be offended

    Is what it is. I think he did "give it all" up until last season. Do I think he could have done things differently, sure he's not blameless.

    At this point I'm more upset at the Owner for being so blind/too optimistic and switching out WB for Wall. We had a real chance to start fresh this offseason...

    That's what I expect too. He may do well in the east, but he won't get past the Lakers in the finals with even 40 year old bron if he even reaches that far.

    CP3, Harden, & Capela should have been our big three until we found CLEAR upgrades. Those 3 together had one of the best records in the league for a big 3. We didn't, we got worse. After that it was over. Last season I hope some hope throughout the year, but the Lakers were the real deal. Now I'm okay with this all being torn down.

    Agreed. Silas has been dealth a horrendous hand, but his handling in the public is about as good as you can get. The product on court has been awful. I had hope in the preseason... we'll see where we go from here.

    Didn't his last season, where Rick wanted him with limited minutes after his surgery complained about not having enough minutes.
    So he went on the court and stunk it up before Morey miraculously traded him to the Knicks (Mike D'Antoni, lol)

    Yes he did. He picked the Lakers to beat us in a playoff series while he was still on the team.

    I was most excited about them in the first 2 preseason games without Harden.

    Like many i am exhausted mentally by Harden. Of course i have the pleasure of having that position for like 4 years now, but truly exhausted here.

    Is what it is...

    Of note... Tucker is getting to that level, too.

    I won't see it. I honestly don't plan on ever watching Harden play basketball again. Took way too much enegry defending his attitude, playoff disapearances and bad defense over the years. Atleast that will be over.

    Hopefully the next superstar we get is not a drama queen like Harden.

    I appreciated T-mac and I appreciate Harden. I will say that I liked the way T-Mac played the game though. He was an amazing athlete. Harden is supper efficient, but 3’s and foul shots is kind of boring. I watch various players but I doubt I will ever watch Harden again. It’s not the type of basketball I enjoy, unless it’s the Rockets.
