    It's the style of play. It looks very exciting from the outside looking in. But when the rubber meets to the road. That's when jokers realize wtf just happened. They get phased out in big time playoffs games, standing in watching just like the role players.

    How? He's one of the least efficient scorers in basketball. He's great at the rim (63%) but he's a terrible free throw shooter, his mid-range game is literally the least efficient shots in basketball and his free throw percentage just dropped from 85% to 65% in a single season. Literally the only two things he's good at is taking it to the hole and passing/creating. He can't do those things when Harden is doing the ball handling.

    If Lizzie McGuire was her Clarissa Explains It All then what was her Sabrina the Teenage Witch?

    Hilary Duff has work to do.

    No idea how to feel about the trade, but I will say this:

    All the people screaming about how will 2 ball-dominant guards possibly play together? - Same thing was said about CP3 and Harden.. they did well I think.

    Watching Westbrook highlights, the dude either passes or shoots within 7 seconds every time.. should go well in the Dantoni offense..

    I know we said we could always have Harden or Paul on the floor, but always having Harden or WB on the floor?!?! thats 2 elite 1v1 guys.

    At the very least, it will be fun to watch; explosions are fun whether destructive or productive

    Reading through Page 17 —— still no @Reeko

    I’m still shocked. I was anti WestBrook for Capela and Gordon but this changes that outlook for me at least. CP3 didn’t look as aggressive last year with or without harden but you know there will be NO LACK of aggression from WB

    Bro...

    - Wesbtrook loves to attack the rim, that's a thing Morey likes
    - Westbrook loves to take some mid range shots, that's a thing clutchfans likes
    - Westbrook loves to run the open court in 7 seconds or less, that's a thing Mike likes
    - Westbrook loves to play defense only when it matters, that's a thing Harden likes

    ...so, yeah, everyone's gonna love Westbrook.

    Agreed. There are no trophies for second place. You are either the champion or you are nothing.

    We need players that can knock down threes and play defense. Is that Westbrook?

    Just thinking about how just in the past 5 years we've had dwight, melo, paul, and now westbrook on the rockets. i mean they've all been big time on the decline but thats still pretty crazy.

    OK. Just got home and I read page one of the damn thing, and I'm not reading the 33 pages in between!
    Holy cow! Morey is nuts! How he justified this is beyond me. Did I miss any details? CP3 and the picks, and that's it? God, I hope Morey doesn't think he can kick back and see how this plays out. We need more talent.

    Chris Paul must be pissed.

    BTW it looks like this may become a 3 team deal with Miami. My guess is Iman could be signed and traded for a Justice Winslow, but that's also wishful thinking.

    No.

    But we also needed a guy that can take over for stretches so Harden doesn't have to put up 60 to win games.

    Cp couldn't beat his man off the dribble anymore, he became a rich man's Derek Fisher.

    Judging by the last playoff series that certainly wasn't Paul.
