    Simple yes or no poll.

    Harden can leave in two years, and if the Rockets have a poor first few months this next season, I would just go ahead and put him on the trading block.

    I don't see him signing another long term deal here if Morey can't build a team around him by 2018 free agency.

    That was the farthest the rockets made it in the last two decades. I say yes. But who knows.

    Yes. If we go to the NBA finals with Harden I'll give everyone who posts on clutchfans 400 dollars.

    Yes.
    That's not particularly Harden's fault or anyone's; because only four teams out of 30 are conference finalists, the average player only makes the conference finals every 7.5 years (and the Finals every 15).

    Ok.

    Funny thing is, I do believe we peaked at WCF 2 years ago, that was best we could do in Harden era.

    probably since he's leaving this unappreciative fanbase the first chance he gets.

    No! The 2018 WCF will be the highlight of his time here.

    Hmmmm... It often takes a while for franchise players to win it all. Obviously, each player and situation is different. But look at the big picture, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the ride, all the ups and downs.

    This team will most likely suck the next 2 years.

    We have no flexibility to improve until Harden is a free agent, then were stuck with Anderson and Gordon in their 30s for two years
