    I was looking at the TO vs. AS among the big threes, Harden, Howard, and Smith, basically, they turned the ball over slightly more than they assisted their teammates.

    Harden: 6.8 <> 4.0
    Howard: 1.5 <> 3.3
    Smith: 1.8 <> 3.0

    It's hard to win games when your stars don't create shots for other players, especially when themselves don't shot high %. Howard's FT % made his high FG % irrelevant.

    The players want to win. Smith and Brewer were excited coming to a winning team. I don't think its the players.

    Its a system that can't be figured out, and that falls on the coach.

    The franchise should just fold. Let Seattle have a team again.

    Everyone is going to try to pin this on McHale, but it's not his call. Getting josh smith and starting him is a morey or les move. Starting smith was a part of the deal when we signed him, so mchale never had a choice in the matter. If he had his way dmo would be starting still.

    lol nice picture. Look man I am not saying even saying you are wrong, I am simply saying give it at least 30 games post trade before you start proclaiming the FO is made up of a bunch of idiots that don't know the game. As of right now, all the moves they have made was to better the team. Right now it just hasn't translated to the court.

    I am curious on why you are lumping Harden in with the other two.

    This crap is rather annoying as it comes off as someone whining about the current league MVP.

    Harden won't get any better than this. Get over it. Smith isn't a star anymore, and Howard provides many more opportunities than his assist show.

    Don't think that will last for too much longer.

    He started the season shooting 60% from 3. He's just in a slump

    Its a 82 game season and we have new players. They need time to adjust and are just off right now. Any game we will get it together and go on another win streak and it probably starts tonight.

    Benching Isaiah Canaan is McHale's call.

    Are we pretending that Canaan is a difference maker now?

    Guess the coaches and players took it, but it's just one game, no reason to get carried away ;)

    I hear Leslie tried to sell the team this morning but couldn't even get a single offer. Plan B is to go full sterLing.

    Can we start posting this after every NL Rocket post? Dude is b-e-a-t-d-o-w-n.

    We're still trying to figure out rotations, minutes, effective strategies while incorporating both injured players and new players but if you listen to this guy you'd think our whole team has been mismanaged and is 10-23 instead of 23-10.

    Enough with these sky is falling clowns.

    How is this a great thread when the dude posts an accountability thread after one game, in a season in which the Rox are only 4 games behind first place with more than half a season to go?

    Despite your complaints the Rockets have 2 rings and multiple playoff appearances in the last 18 years, how can they be the worst when teams like Atlanta, Memphis, Toronto etc. don't even have 1 ring in the modern era? Or do you mean playoff success but without any rings? How's that even work, a team that reaches the WCF has more playoff success than a team that won the whole shebang 2 times?

    In your desire to become one of the "in" crowd amidst a sea of so-called Morey sheep you distort the facts and exaggerate the problems the team has. Yes the team isn't perfect, but guess what so are 29 other organizations. Everyone has warts and stuff they need to work on, but if you read the stuff you post it's like the Rockets are the Knicks or some other dead in the water team wtf. I guess it's a good thing you were a Rox fan because if you were a Knicks fan you might've killed yourself by now.
