    I can see Tillman making some rookie wear the # 13 just to spite Harden.

    By the time the ceremony happens the Rockets will be owned by the Creditors Committee. Hope they approve the pyro!

    I think so. Make sure to schedule the retirement ceremony when Harden is back in Toyota Center.

    No and I don’t see a reason why they should, for now.

    Of course not immediately. Some day? Absolutely they should.

    Von was a bigger f*** up than Harden, and he didn't have the resume to back it up.

    Yeah. I think he probably will.

    What Rocket player who won MVP as a Rocket has not had their number retired?

    I give to Moses for team accomplishments.
    Plus he mentored the CLEAR GREATEST ROCKET OF ALL TIME.

    He doesn't deserve to be remembered.

    Harden’s been here for 8 seasons, averaged 30, 6, and 8, won an MVP, and is the 2nd greatest player in franchise history...as the years go by, things will cool down and he should get his jersey retired

    he’s been too great here for too long

    Don't care, Harden is about to become persona non grata in H town after these antics.

    Harden could come back and shoot and kill Cousins and Wall in cold blood and he'd still get his # retired someday. He's the second best Rocket of all time.

    That being said.. it'll be a while with this ugly exit.

    One of his best friends fled Houston after seeing Harden's behavior and the treatment he received.
    Yeah, yeah, George and Leonard blah blah blah ... but that happens in the Clippers and I worry about what happens in Houston. I am Rockets fan!
    No one, no one has done more to ruin Harden's image than Harden.

    Harden is the 3rd greatest rocket of all time. The jersey is getting retired.

    And that's from someone who's been pushing the trade Harden bandwagon since The season ended

    I’ll still take many Rockets over Harden as more established as Rockets, players I’ve felt connected with, who were warm to city and fans and literally lived and breathed Houston.
