    I guess defense doesn't matter to you.

    We would have been miles better keeping CP3.

    Russ Westbrook is an ALL STATS only all star, but is not a winner.

    We had the 3rd best defensive rating in the playoffs that year (106.8)

    A good coach and a good PG acquisition could make him a well-above average wing. A better passing Pippin is the ceiling, solid not-quite all-star level is his floor if--if--he buys into a new coaching philosophy, sees the potential in the change, and works to make it happen.

    His current contract will be used to close the deal on a huge multi team deal that lands us our next cornerstone player. We will thank him for his service but never look back. I don’t think it is wise to knowingly do long term business with unstable people either.

    I think it’s safe to say Sengun will be on the roster. Skilled bigs like him on a controlled contract are valued. If he is not here than his trade return is taking us to a championship.

    He has to become more efficient… there is just no way around it. He doesn’t have to even improve at everything, but he has to shoot the ball and protect the ball better or he won’t be in the league long.

    Yes his defense has improved and he should be commended for that but we are approaching the point where it won’t matter if his TS% is so bad.

    But that rating was better when Westbrook was out for most of OKC series.

    LOL

    CF thinks Rockets can jettison players and get automatically receive better players back.

    Be realistic, grass is not always greener.

    Not until AFTER House shet the bed and left Rockets shorthanded.

    Rockets were extremely competitive with Lakers before then.

    I think its important to take into account the amount of games played.

    Games played: Anthony Edwards : 99 games

    Trae Young first two years in the league: 141 games

    Ja Morant first two years in the league: 130 games

    Kevin Porter Jr: 96 games played

    I think its important to have perspective here.

    If we are going by games played, this isnt really his second year in the league. This is like one year and some change of experience. I think its important to have patience here. He's showed talent at his young age, so when we have to give him time.
