    I mean, I'm as optimistic as a fan of a team who just acquired a player coming off an Achilles injury and owed $130M over the next three years can possibly be, I guess. :shrug:

    Look, I don't love...
  2. They lost RoCo as a means to get a higher upside,...

    They lost RoCo as a means to get a higher upside, younger player at a greater position of need in Wood, though. And they added picks while doing it. Also, Cousins was a vet minimum, non-guaranteed...
  3. I was studying that this morning. Houston has...

    I was studying that this morning. Houston has three picks in 2021, but none of them are likely to be higher than 20th, and one is hella protected from Detroit. They got this protected pick from...
  4. If Harden gets traded, it's probably because Wall...

    If Harden gets traded, it's probably because Wall is awful or injured. You're not "building" around an injury-prone John Wall in the NBA. You're rebuilding despite him being on the roster. Once...
  5. Last offseason was way worse. And I really don't...

    Last offseason was way worse. And I really don't see the Rockets in significantly worse shape than they were 24 hours ago. With Westbrook or Wall, the likelihood of them winning a title is slim. At...
  6. The funny thing is, I didn't even know about it...

    The funny thing is, I didn't even know about it until I woke up this morning. I woke up 20 minutes ago and saw a text from a friend about it and was like, "huh?"

    My initial reaction? :puke:

    It...
  7. Robinson would probably be the better player...

    Robinson would probably be the better player because he'd have the better numbers with similar accolades. But if we're playing that game, let's take out Wade's 2006 season, Dirk's 2011 season, Kobe's...
  8. Robinson's Spurs won 62 games that season playing...

    Robinson's Spurs won 62 games that season playing with a future Hall-of-Famer in Rodman, a two-time All-Star in Sean Elliott and some solid role players in Johnson and Del Negro. They lock up...
  9. Except you didn't. I was more confused than I was...

    Except you didn't. I was more confused than I was upset, because your statement didn't make any sense. If I get upset you'll know it, because there will be a lot more cursing, and my responses will...

    In this hypothetical scenario OP proposed, though, I think it's likely it would be a shorter-term super team. Lebron's turning 36 this month and would be 37 by the time Giannis would be on board. I...
  11. That's true. Fewer teams obviously made it easier...

    That's true. Fewer teams obviously made it easier to create stacked rosters. Buy my point stands that the idea of multiple stars and Hall of Famers joining a dominant team is hardly a new idea.

    ...
  12. You could argue even before. Look at how stacked...

    You could argue even before. Look at how stacked the Celtics and Lakers were in the 60s and early 70s. And Earl Monroe joined an already stacked Knicks team in 71, that generation's version of KD...
  13. :confused: MJ's comeback had nothing to do with...

    :confused: MJ's comeback had nothing to do with the Rockets not winning titles the past 25 years, because Houston hasn't made a finals since and the Rockets have never faced Chicago in the playoffs....
  14. You can't tell me Sean Elliott isn't at least on...

    You can't tell me Sean Elliott isn't at least on par, if not better than Otis Thorpe. That 94 team was all Dream.
  15. Let's check the scoreboard: No. of Hakeem's...

    Let's check the scoreboard:
    No. of Hakeem's rings during Robinson's peak: 2
    No. of Robinson's rings when he wasn't Duncan's *****: 0

    Yeah, sorry dude. Take your one-game regular season sample...

    One thing I'm interested in is whether they make changes to the defense or not. Because I actually think Wood might be a better fit for what the Rockets do defensively than RoCo was. Covington is a...

    Morey knows how much of a difference a superstar makes and he has zero issues throwing in young assets to get a deal done. Look at the Chris Paul deal a few years ago. It was a sign and trade. He...

    We can argue value all day long, but it's a moot point, because until the Rockets' front office either gets an offer that blows them away or feels the relationship between Harden and the organization...

    What a coincidence! One of MY favorite Youtube videos also involves David Robinson!

    :laugh: I'm sorry, but there's zero chance that happens in the next two years of Harden's contract. Simmons is great. He's a super talented, versatile young star with a ton of upside. But the...

    The results of the season will ultimately determine the direction of the franchise.

    If Wood plays the role they think he'll play, Silas' offensive system works and they get some competent play out...

    I'm actually really curious to see what Silas can do as a head coach with this roster. I'm a big MDA fan, personally, but his inability to make changes, unwillingness to play more than 7-8 guys every...

    Yeah, I was looking at his numbers, and he went from topping 36%+ in five of his first six seasons in the league to shooting below 35% in five of his last six seasons. Not sure what happened to his...

    I've always been a fan of Batum and have though of him as "Iggy light." Love his jack-of-all-trades game and length on defense, but it's hard to know what he's got left in the tank. Maybe signing...

    I don't see a ton of hyping on our end really. I don't think Wood is going to be cracking any All-NBA teams anytime soon or that the 22/10 he put up over that small sample size last year is going to...
