Not complaining as there is no other SG in the West that deserves to start.

I'm REALLY hoping Dirk plays like 1 minute and gets one of his signature fade aways. Then please let him rest and let Anthony Davis ball.

Doesn't need to be an SG. It's backcourt and frontcourt not pg, sg, sf, pf, c


Dragic > Harden.

The reserves should have been Dragic and Lillard. They deserve it more than Harden.

I would even start Lillard and play Curry at the 2.

36-17, third place in the west,
but just by a slight margin.Can easily fall down to the 5th.The X factor imo is Lin ,who is quite inconsistent at times.Rockets didnt start very well but they are doing a better job recently.
Anyway ,Harden deserves the starting spot.

Yeah, Dragic is a better player than Harden this season, but he's not on the team - so that's not an option. And Harden's game is actually awesome for All Star weekend. He'll be Eurostepping and hitting fadeaways, not flailing for contact so don't worry about that. That's a really fun starting 5.

most of the people on PSD who hates the Rockets are Warriors fans who thinks their team is better and tries to argue that every chance they get which, apparently, includes hating on our players....along with a select few Lakers fans who are still bitter about Dwight Howard leaving.

What? The Rockets have the fifth best record in the entire NBA! They have a better record than teams like the Clippers, Warriors, Mavericks, Wolves and Knicks. If Harden isn't a star, then based on that logic, Paul, Griffin, Curry, Dirk, Love and Melo aren't stars other.

Dragic > Harden.

The reserves should have been Dragic and Lillard. They deserve it more than Harden.

I think Dragic is having a slightly better season than Harden, but I don't think he's a better basketball player. Harden's been hurt a lot of the season and the Rockets have a much better record than Phoenix. Lillard does not deserve to be in over Harden or Dragic. He's had a great season, but he's not on Harden's level just yet, and Dragic has played a little better. Dragic also has pretty much carried that Phoenix team to playoff contention this season.

Dragic this season versus Harden last season is a more interesting debate. I prefer Dragic's games after watching the Suns more lately - I think he's amazing right now - but that could be a fun argument.

But Rox fans, please don't delude yourself to think the hate is "Warriors fans" centric. It's his flopping, fellas. The vast majority of fans can't stand it. Me less so than most, and I'm a Warrior fan.

The thing I don't get is that Harden is hardly the only guy in the league who does it. The Clippers are famous for it, and it's not like other top 10 guys in the league don't get to the line way more often then they deserve. Hell, Harden is essentially just Manu 2.0, but people didn't give him NEARLY this much **** during his prime when he was flopping every game.

The reason isn't just that Harden is flopping. The reason is that Harden is flopping AND people hate the Rockets now because they added Dwight and they're damn good. Hell, you can look at last season and his game hasn't changed to this year, but the amount of James Harden hate has increased exponentially. It has very little to do with Harden.

Im actually pretty nutural of that. Everyone has a least favorite team..whether that's a rival or whatever reason. For me, the current Rockets my least favorite team in the league..even more than the Heat. I used to love watching them with Tmac, Yao..and with Olajuwan..Francis.. Even Artest days recently. Always had good fun teams. Now they have two of the most obnoxious players in the league in their own ways. Dwight Howard, no need to explain, and James Harden, no flop need flop to flop explain. Flop.

I actually like the rest of their team too... Parsons is a genuinely smart, respectable guy.. Jones, Asik, Beverly, cant complain about

You are just wrong. Completely. Keep telling yourself that.



OR, you can come to a level of maturity and realize that your boy is indeed..the king of flailing like a *****.

Look we all have favorite players and teams..but a respected fan will admit to their flaws. The Rocket fans are starting to act like Heat fans.

He clearly deserves it. He is the best player on the #3 team in the west and the 5th best record in the NBA. Dragic should be an all star but is not better than harden. Dragic should be on the team instead of Chris Paul

Goose17
02-14-2014, 04:55 PM
Really now..... And why is that?

First of all I personally believe Dragic is having the better season, in fact, I know he is, it's a statistical fact. And due to how much his team has overachieved with him as the "alpha" I feel he deserves recognition, and not just him as an individual, but Phoenix as a team, they deserve to have an all star after such a fantastic season. Nobody, not even any Phoenix fans that I know, predicted they would have this sort of year.

Houston already have D12 on the roster (who is completely undeserving imho, and no it's not hate, I actually like Dwight). Houston have played well, but they've not played so well that they deserve two all stars imo, I mean one or the other, Houston have met the expectations people had, Phoenix have absolutely smashed the expectations people had.




Because he's a Warriors fan. It's them and Lakers fans that tend to comment against the Rockets.

Now I wonder why. Hmmm...:rolleyes:

Not at all. I really like Hardens game (flopping aside), and I'm a huge fan of Lin and Parsons.

But two team BELOW them in the standings (Clippers and Blazers) deserve 2 all-stars? that makes no sense.

Dwight has been playing some of the most dominant basketball in the entire league for about a month now and might be playing the best defense in the NBA. He absolutely deserves it.

Blazers do, because again, they have vastly overachieved, Houston have merely met their expectations.

Clippers don't deserve two all stars.

Hold on, met expectations? Have people forgotten all the predictions they were making before the season? People were saying the rockets would finish anywhere between 5th to not making the playoffs. No one expected the rockets to 3rd with a good chance to keep that seed.

02-14-2014, 07:26 PM
But back on topic, I'm not sure I can say Harden deserves to be the starter because the criteria is so inconsistent. If we are going with the player who's statistically better then Steph Curry gets he slight edge over Harden and Dragic (Dragic being VERY close). But if we're factoring in team success and improvement (which seems to be the case in the reserves) then I'd put Harden in first, Dragic in second and Curry in third.

People here get so butt hurt...it's just a forum guys.

Anyways, I do believe he deserves to start. Dragic has had a better season statistically, but then again he's the number one and basically only real option on that suns team. Harden shares the bright lights with Howard and is still putting up great numbers, while leading his team to top seed in the west.m

I'm the most unbiased fan, beleiev it or not. Ask me to choose one guy out harden curry and Dragic to build my team around for the next 10 years...
Curry, followed by harden then Dragic...he is not a better player or more deserving than harden idc what people here say. Harden gets so much hate not it's ridiculous...Howard has done nothing wrong all season, he's actually had a great season but that doesn't matter...the hate will always be there it's stupid.

Just by a slight margin. Could fall to 5th easily (Clippers and trailblazers are very close to them )They climbed up to 3th because of their current winning streak

The Warriors could slide to 9th easily and miss the playoffs. The are only in the 8th seed you know!

You are just wrong. Completely. Keep telling yourself that.

OR, you can come to a level of maturity and realize that your boy is indeed..the king of flailing like a *****.

Look we all have favorite players and teams..but a respected fan will admit to their flaws. The Rocket fans are starting to act like Heat fans.

Maturity? At ANY point in that post did I deny that Harden flops? No. I understand the situation. I understand that his ability to draw fouls and his embellishment of those fouls helps him as an offensive player. He might even do it more than other stars, but that doesn't mean other players don't do it. If this were baseball and Player A took far more steroids than the rest of the league combined, would that absolve the rest of the players who took steroids? Hell no. They still did it.

My point isn't that Harden isn't worth criticizing. It's that other players are also worthy of criticism, but I almost never see that on this site. Don't hold a double standard and criticize one guy, but then allow another to do it without any criticism. It's ********.

the west is painfully tough.I said one time here that Warriors were not doing well and expressed concerns for them ,but then soon afterwards a warriors fan ridiculed me and said i was living under a rock because they climbed up to the 4th and i didnt notice.Well , i did didnt realize it cause i remembered they suffered from injuries and were like 7th before that .

Go read the mint gorrila explanation in the other thread (about western conference seeding)

You gotta stop, dude. I generally respect the things you have to say most of the time, but you've gone a bit off the deep end the last few days in your attempt to troll Rockets fans. No one is impressed or amused by your use of an 8th grade literary device and Twitter hashtags outside of Twitter (one of my biggest pet peeves). You can be clever and even a tad insulting without shoving it down people's throats, but it's gone too far.

Meh, I clearly stated it was anagram, if nobody was quick enough to pick up on it and work out what I was doing then that's their fault as far as I'm concerned.

It was all harmless fun spawned from utter boredom. And don't act like Houston fans don't troll people. You have a couple of people in your camp that are two of the worst on this forum.

i think i'm one of them cause i trolled LA fans haaard back when they were all butthurt bout Dwight leaving. i trolled NYK fans too back when they were all trashing Lin and saying Felton is better. but me doing that was my way of defending our players :shrug: i don't know who the other one is tho. most Rockets fans tend to stay in their own forum and the only time our fans venture out of our own forum is to defend the Rockets. But Goose fails at trolling. you don't make yourself look stupid when you troll cause that's just....dumb.

1. You are one of them.

2. I looked stupid, but you believed I was actually that stupid, which makes you look even more stupid :) You guys bit on all that far too easily, as if anyone could genuinely believe in half the crap I was spouting.

3. I'm not going to name names, but since you were aware of how big a troll you are, I'm pretty sure the other dude knows too.

4. Nobody takes this board seriously, the only reason any of us are here is to kill some time, people need to be more laid back about this type of crap.

i mean if the shoes fit...:shurg: and it wouldn't be the first time someone who's really as stupid as you claim you acted frequented this board.

the only other poster i can think of who borders on trolling and claims to be a Rockets fan is farren.louis. but i don't think he's trolling. i think he really is THAT dumb, cause he spews the same nonesense in the rockets forum.

As soon as he said single handedly ruining the game of basketball you should have just shook your head and accepted there is no reasoning with this troll.

NO ONE flops the entire game every single chance he gets except harden. This is what you don't get. Its almost the focal point of his game. Other plays flop on occasion and get made fun of but harden doesn't it game by game play by play its disgusting

Never said or intended he single handedly is but he is definitely pushes basketball in the wrong direction with his flailing obsession.

as much as I hate flopping, it still works. Until the NBA does something about it, more power to him. I hate playing against him, because 3-4 times a game he just looks like a fish on the deck of a boat, but hey, it works dude.

So pride, respect, honesty just mean nothing now?

I understand it works. That's not the point. Were still humans..basic human values still exist where we don't want to watch cheap dishonest play

Looks ridiculous..embarrassing.

If there's a reasoning..like they really hate the other player and want to get under there skin by flipping a call. Fine. But harden takes it to another level

Look. Call it whatever the **** you want. It's working. If the league thought Harden was doing it as often as you claim he was doing it, they would fine him and suspend him. But they rarely do, because Harden's flops aren't nearly as bad as you're making it out to be. Also, it's far more an issue based on league officiating than it is on specific players. So go ahead and ***** about Harden all you want to, but you're TOTALLY missing the point. It's not Harden's fault that the league has allowed this to become an issue. It's the league's fault, and until the league works harder to address the issue, Harden won't be the only one to take advantage of it.
