    Even if the Rockets were trotting out a lineup of 5 elementary school players I’d still be watching (and hoping Stone can flip one of the 5th graders for a 2nd round pick).

    Rockets for life!

    This backcourt could be good, Wall and Oladipo .

    At least he's not fat.

    What are you talking about? Did you not hear that Dipo says he doesn't wanna play here? He wants to be traded to Miami.

    He'll be gone soon for sure. IDK why we gave up both Lavert and Allen if we weren't planning to tank.

    If our management thinks this team with Wall, Wood and an unhappy Dipo are gonna contend, they're more delusional than some Rockets fans.

    who cares... he is an asset, a trade chip, an expiring contract, and we are rebuilding anyway.

    to answer your question Tinman, I dunno man...when someone takes a giant $hit in the pool and leaves, I'm afraid to get back in, even after they took the poop out.

    No. He's gonna play his ass off. He's a free agent this summer and probably the second best FA available.

    Well, if he can play well for Houston the rest of this year, he can sign a big FA contract in Miami in the offseason. Win-Win.

    Right. This isn't a Harden-type situation at all. Assuming Oladipo cares about what he can get paid in free agency he has an extremely strong incentive to increase his value. If he wants to play in Miami and get max money doing it, his best bet is to play his rear off and prove he is still a star caliber player so we can send him there at the deadline for Precious or whatever assets we want to try and pick up.

    Whether he actually does that is another thing, but if he pouts and plays poorly it will be very counterproductive for him getting max money.
