    Good? Really good? I dunno. Do we really need a thread like this—I'm not sure the point of it. We know they're a top 3-4 team in the league and one of the two best in the West, but it doesn't really...

    And he can't even score in the paint. Watching him try to score in the post last night was depressing. When you can't even score on Frank Kaminsky in the post, you have a problem.

    If that's the best deal they can get, I'm happy to have picks. Scott doesn't really do anything for me. But I've got to think Stone is holding out for a 1st rounder, even if it's late or protected....

    I still think the talent on this team equates to a legit playoff squad. But they've had no time together as a core between the injuries, COVID and the Harden drama/trade. If Wall were playing and...

    In my defense, it wasn't just the terrible play. It was the terrible play combined with the news that Wall would miss more time and Wood turning his ankle. Wood was fine, thank god. But if Wall...

    If the Rockets can get anything of value for Eric Gordon, I'd trade him in a heartbeat. I would literally trade him for cap space and a half-eaten ham sandwich. Hell, it doesn't even have to be a...

    Wall is set to miss at least six consecutive games. He's only played in seven freaking games total so far. To make matters worse, Christian Wood rolled his ankle horribly in the first half. Harden's...

    Remember all that stuff I said a few pages ago about trying to go for it with this Rockets team? After watching this first half, I think I've done a 180. Also, I low key think they may actively be...

    Yes, but I think continuity has to be a huge piece of it as well. Kerr was in his first season as coach when they won their first title, but that core of Curry, Klay, Draymond, Iggy and Barnes had...

    How does anyone? It's just my take on how likely I think each team will make the Finals. Brooklyn feels like a favorite, but given the choice between them or the field, I give the rest of the...

    I would bet on the Nets to come out of the East, gun to my head. But I don't think it's the slam dunk you're making it sound like. If you look at the other super teams of recent years, more of those...

    Right. But I'm not talking about teams winning it all out of the top 8. To me, if a team wins a championship that wasn't considered one of the eight best going into the start of the postseason,...

    Yeah, I was curious and just checked the odds. Apparently even if they finish with the worst record in the league, the chances they end up with a top 4 pick are only 52%. With the fourth worst record...

    Right, but if the Rockets don't end up with a top 4 pick, that's irrelevant, because their pick will go to OKC. Now they will get a draft pick in this draft (probably Miami's), but the way OKC...

    If it was a clear black and white choice between the two, I'd agree with you. My biggest fear, though, is Houston will have a fire sale, tank like crazy, finish with one of the 3-5 worst records in...

    The Rockets lost another one and looked out of sync last night at times (especially the first quarter), but for what it's worth, Oladipo looked legit. He definitely doesn't seem like a primary ball...

    To clarify, I don't think it's JUST that Houston is a small market. I think it's that Harden is a very polarizing player, the Rockers were a very polarizing team AND they play in a small market. When...
