    Ok this is getting ridiculous now. CP3 was not the main reason we were close, it was Harden, which is why we almost won the games when cp3 was out. Cp3 was what was going to get us over the hump, not the engine driving us.

    ain’t that the truth

    same clowns who’ve been wanting Harden traded for years and saying that we don’t owe him anything are now mad that Harden wants out and is trying to get to the destination of his choosing

    they can stfu...like u said, they’re getting what they wanted

    Morey and Harden gone in 1 offseason...they no longer have to deal with an overrated GM and a choker as we embark on a rebuild...they’re all getting their wish

    don’t start b*tching and crying now

    We simply have to agree to disagree here, personally i'm pretty sure the "oh i know what we have to do", wasn't about Butler at all, just by the way Harden said that, but that's just me. I still respect your opinion here cause i know you aren't a fanboy of the player and you criticized Harden in the past, but while i absolutely agree on Tilman being that bad/the worst on everything, i'm also pretty sure the CP3 trade was way more about Harden wanting CP3 out.

    they should keep him only because that BK offer is so sh*tty, and according to Shams, Philly has been reluctant so far to include Simmons, so whatever they’re offering is even worse than BK

    ain’t no working it out or convincing Harden...this thing is over

    What, the Rockets are about to kill it in free agency and then make a run to the WCF or possibly finals? Please...

    How could It go so wrong? I remember you being confident CP3/4 picks for Russell Westbrook was the best possible move.

    A NO BRAINER, you would say

    no, the best possible move was adding Jimmy Butler

    I did think our championship window was closed after 18-19 which is why I came around to not being against trading for Westbrook even tho I hated it initially, and yeah, Westbrook was a fail

    Harden posted a cap last night saying its a lie. I don't believe any of this. Harden is Houston.

    If it’s a lie, why did the Rockets trade their best defender and a perfect fit in their defensive system for what they gave up to acquire him in the first place? Trevor Ariza is now 35 years old, and he’s not the same player he was in 2018.

    hang on for dear life as long as you can. most of us know its been over though. I'd say the faster the better so the shock of whats to come doesn't hit you as hard but the reality is its happening

    At this point, all I want is for Stone to create a bidding war among Eastern Conference contenders and perhaps the Nuggets so the Rockets can get one of Simmons, Jaylen Brown, Siakam, Jamal Murray or an Adebayo/Herro package in return.

    If Harden wants to leave us, then yes.

    If the Rockets get the right offer for Harden, sure. If they take the poo-poo platter offered by Brooklyn, Tilman Fertitta should be booed relentlessly at every home game once fans return to the arena.
