    he wasn't a positive. he dragged ass all year during the regular season, and we let it slide because we were certain he was gonna go off in the playoffs, and he was trash. 90% of the WCSF.

    Flip Wall but for a legit 3 and 4. Both with playmaking abilities would be best.

    Harden is the PG on this team.

    You’ve got to be kidding.
    We have some horrendous negotiators. We basically didn’t get a pick out of it, best case a late first rounder a few years down the line.

    Anyone who’s happy with this sucks at putting together rosters. We just traded at his current “worst” an All NBA third team player for a guy who hasn’t played since 2018.

    I’m done. I hope Harden forces his way out. Stone was really winning me over then this. He got robbed, we got robbed.

    and it wasn't even just that he was ass. it was that he was ass while trying to act like he was the boss, and that rubbed people, mainly harden the wrong way.

    how you tryna hold people accountable when you're playing like trash most nights.

    Lmao someone who has been trash in the playoffs is westbrick. This is exactly the dumb logic that put the rockets in this position in the first place. Cp3 “down year” is a career year for most starting guards in the league. Dudes out here tell themselves he was trash just to try to make themselves feel better. And look at him now. Still one of the best in the league cause idiots can’t understand what’s good and what’s not

    Walls health scares me to no end. This trade is a no-brainer if his health is guaranteed. It's scary as hell without. Of course, if you're insinuating this would have been a lost/distracted year of no production for the contract anyway......

    I hate Tillman Fertitta.

    Chris Paul commanded Kelly Oubre Jr, Rubio and a 1st. Westbrook got us the corpse of John Wall and a 1st. You can trade Rubio and Oubre on their contracts. Wall? Oh no he's here now. Enjoy watching Tillman collect insurance on him because he doesn't play over the next few years. That'll be fun.

    p.s. I HATED the Westbrook trade. I hated Westbrook. And I want Westbrook gone desperately. And I am STILL mad at this trade. ****ing Fertitta.

    Westbrook was playing a game of chicken. He left us with no choice to be honest. He was in la posting clips daily of himself signing in his car and not going to show up for training camp.

    He wants out. Also, the Rockets played better without Westbrook on the court last year.

    FYI...Wall's contract has a insurance policy pretty nice insurance policy.

    I hope he plays...but its money in Tilman's pockets if he doesnt.

    One thing we can all agree on is that this is going to be one interesting season.

    most starting point guards are average and don't get paid $40 million. so it's not really saying much.

    only way the rockets are winning a championship with harden is having another superstar alongside him playing like a superstar. and we haven't had that in 2 years.
