This team has dealt with two different owners, two different coaches, and now two different GM's - but the same-old lessons still aren't learned.

  • H-town has a bad habit of one-and-done'ing players who turn out to be gems after they're dealt
  • Houston still has a reputation for treating their players like cattle, very few have anything nice to say after being dealt out
  • The organization seems to have a bad habit of happily swallowing poison-pill contracts - we now hold the biggest and worst contract in the NBA in John Wall
  • We spent season after season building a team with the sole purpose of countering Golden State - who then turned around and tanked, making those moves pointless and the Rockets vulnerable to bigs and surprise surprise, BIGS are back and post-play is slowly making a comeback

We're taking a low-cost gamble on Cousins, who's basically a question-mark in terms of "is he who he was, or diminshed?"

We're now taking a high-cost gamble on Wall with the exact same question.

...and Eric Gordon is STILL somehow on the roster... because NOBODY wants him elsewhere.

Are *any* of those moves going to convince Harden to want to stay, or are we going all in for another potential cripple? I mean... let's go full absurd and take on D-Rose while we're at it, right? (This statement was pure sarcasm if it wasn't obvious)

Between the SJW nonsense, Kung-flu nonsense, and a complete binning of the team we had - I'm not so sure I even care to watch this sport I once loved for 30 years. It's been a quarter-century since Houston has reached the promised land, and don't be surprised if it's another quarter-century before we have an owner, and a GM and a PLAN that'll get us even close to it again.

These are dark days in H-town.

C'mon... somebody shine a glimmer of hope in all this nonsense.
