    Technically we traded 2 and 2 pick swaps. And we start tanning in 2023 it could be 0 pick and 2 pick swaps.

    Just had to verify that I have more foresight than Tilman.

    And we can blame Harden and Tillman for that.

    Man, sounds like a Texans move. When did we hire BoB?

    But but but guys, WE EXTENDED OUR WINDOW, or whatever stupid justification people gave at the time to justify this franchise destroying trade.

    The most amazing part of this trade is that there were actually people who defended it. Some even liked it!

    Did Tilman find the 5% yet?

    Looks back to make sure I didn't post anything stupid...

    ....hooray!

    Was a fairly stunning trade. I don't think the team is in all that much different of a situation. The obvious one is Capela for Covington but it really just switches having a solid player at the 5 for having a solid player at the 3. House actually proved something during the regular season, as did McLemore.

    Gosh, is this team REALLY that far away? That it isn't worth another shot? Or 3?

    I dont think Harden realized how overrated Westbrook was till this year playing with him. Cp3 even with how injured he was sometimes, made life easier for james, that double team crap would never happen if cp3 was here. Teams flat out do not respect westbrook as a shooter, and we had to trade our budding young center because westbrook cant fit in a traditional offense

    Trade was literally a worst case scenario result.

    Injured Westbrook in the playoffs(so much for durability), sold the future, traded Capela, Harden quits, Morey quits, D’Antoni quits.

    Now if it was the even a D- trade instead of L- trade that it was, do you think a destruction of at least 10 years of basketball hope would happen?

    The Rockets went from pushing the champs to 6 games in a toss up series to destroyed for years. Because they’re stupid. And obvious the fans are stupid judging by this thread.
