    Nothing. This team sucks when he doesn’t play off ball. He just stand in one area

    No post ups no midrange everything has become stepback 3 or drives. So robotic now.

    people crying for more ball movement and off ball movement and plays should really by crying to the coach right?

    or Harden its harden's fault because he's going rogue against the coach's plays/strategy?

    Silas recognizes it that is at least a good start. Dantoni always dodged those kinds of questions which leads me to believe this was ingrained by him and is simply a habit that is going to take 20-30 games before we can recognize Silas vision. I have faith.

    What is his vision though? I am guessing another version of Dallas.

    You saw last game that Dallas has better SFs and better shooters when needed first hand.

    It's a different team. Doncic is also more patient with the ball than Harden.

    I am sure Silas has to come up with a new vision pretty soon.

    Harden doesn't run the team no more. (less control over team politics)

    The Rockets said 'no' for the first time.

    It's not his fault any longer so he requested to be traded out.

    It's now Silas and Rafa Stone's responsibility.

    You living under a rock?

    He's always been willing to sacrifice his teammates, especially the second best player on the team.

    James will sacrifice two virgins and a goat Friday at dawn facing Mecca. The blood will absorb into the soil and spring forth eternal optimism and contentment for Rockets fans everywhere!

    Just curious will Hardens teammates sacrifice some extra time to hitting open shots and actually trying to rebound? Asking for a friend, dont want to say his name but his initials are James Edward Harden Jr. Thanks guys you all are just the best!

    His career. At least that is what he would do by being traded to a team and fanbase that will be much worse then his current team.

    When was the last time James ran on the fastbreak ? Guys look for him in transition and he slows it down. That **** can't happen if you want to play fast.

    Probably. Dantoni prefers 8 seconds or less and Harden prevented that with his slow walks up the court.
