    That's my concern too why don't we have real shooters. Silas trying to implement the Mavs offense but we don't have curry or hardaway jr. Heck we don't even have a trey Burke.

    One of Harden or Wall need to be traded. They don't fit at all. Hopefully Wall is recouping some
    if his trade value since he looks as explosive as ever.

    If it's Kobe, he'd be called a chucker.

    I SAID IT BEFORE......We need Gerald Green! We have no 3-point shooting coming off the bench! EG is not enough!

    Less than a week ago, CF posters are so excited about this roster and labeled it as championship contender and second best lineup that Harden ever had.

    This is true
    Everyone was thinking . . .IF HARDEN BUYS IN THIS IS A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM

    But the last few games has exposed so many holes

    This team requires ACTUAL WORK!!!

    Its hard for me to think about what the offense should look like until we know what the roster will look like.

    Obviously, the answer to the first question is one thing if Harden stays, another if he leaves. And if he leaves, it will depend on what the parts look like that we get back.

    If for no other reason than this, I would like the drama and BS to end so we can really start building something. Not sure you can do that with the roster in flux.

    Speak for yourself.

    It's divided like the United States.

    People talk themselves into positivity to sleep better at night.

    I wasn't going to be the one to burst your bubbles so better stayed silent.

    Oh yeah, here is Boogie who used to put up 25 and 10 in his earlier days, Wood is a 25 and 10 monster, Harden is a walking 40 ppg guy, Wall is a 23 and 10 assist guy.

    Well, they won't be putting those numbers when they play together.

    Some of them are not in their primes.

    I remember McGrady had to adjust his scoring from 30 ppg to 24 ppg the first season when he played with Yao.

    That was his sacrifice.

    The fact that 36yo 6’4 PJ Tucker is our starting Power Forward says all about depth at the wing

    Wall not as good running PNR as I thought he'd be.

    MDA was not as dumb as we made him out to be. He maximized the hell out of our offense. It loo
    His track record says he's an elite PnR player one of the best.

    Rockets no longer attempt high volume of 3's, preferring to mix in more mid range.

    But they certainly are not efficient making either.

    The ball should be popping around the court and Harden is continually slowing that down with his iso game. It's getting old.

    Wall and Wood are not in sync then.

    And for all the angst about the Harden iso, Wall is at his best in iso as well especially when he attacks the basket.

    The culture in Houston isn't a uniting front like other teams who have support structure amidst this pandemic. Harden wants to be put into an opportunity to have a better chance but has fallen into a comatose.

    All of our best players are midgets.

    It's a personnel problem.
