      Great move Westbrook and harden or recent MVPs I wish people would stop hateing everything the rockets do people hate All y'all want to do is talk about the lakers.and over the hill has been LeBron.did anybody look at the games between rockets and the Lakers this last season harden dominated LeBron in every game...the rockets warriors clippers..are the cream of the crop this year..not the lakers.dont even say Utah or Denver that's a joke..the rockets for some reason are the most hated team in the league ..and that's cool cause harden and Westbrook are going to dominate the nba this year

    I hate the trade honestly, you traded a bad contract for a WORSE contract. Then I hate how this league is now, two players get into a bit of a disagreement now and they immediately go to the trading option. You traded a good shooter for a terrible shooter. You traded and amazing passer for a passer who forces passing. You traded someone who shoots acceptably in the clutch for someone who shoots 29% from 3 team up with someone who shoots 40% or better. Now you have two chokers. Great job Houston, another 1st or 2nd round exit on the way. People act like last year Chris Paul didn’t take out the GSW’s by himself while James Harden was out with an injury, Chris Paul is definitely capable of stepping up when the time calls for it. People act like he was the one who told James Harden to iso every time He had the ball, that was Dantoni! So when that plan didn’t work it was Chris Paul’s fault? And now people are still not bringing up the contracts considering they are paying Russ way more so they still weren’t gonna be able to make this team any better, they are overpaying everyone on that team, it was just Chris—you can’t pay for two guards and a Center but you’re overpaying people like Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers. I’m sure Clint Capela is only staying because he’s getting paid like a Karl Anthony Towns caliber player. People also talk about how Chris shouldn’t of took that money/contract considering he’s someone who owns a Basketball Camp...he has to fund it somehow.

      Dubs apologists ... not welcome ... Raptors had the better season record and swept the Dubs in the regular season so no one can say they are 100% certain the Dubs win being completely healthy ...

                            Westbrook is trying so hard he's over doing. It's all on him if he wants to be part of what I call "The charles Barkley Club"...NO RING! C Webb, Reggie Miller, Pat Ewing, and alot of our stars today...Vince Carter. The portland guys probably won't get it if they stay together. Funny how life think you met your true mate, until you meet whom you'll like the least and that's a match.

                                    I agree with Marcellus. They will make it work because they're friends. It's that simple. Stephen Jackson thinks that only Pops way is the best way and he couldn't be more wrong.

                                        I love to hear ex NBA players talk about basketball instead not the non-players who have WATCHED themselves into what they think is expert status, I have played bass guitar since 1969, there is nothing a person who has never played bass on a stage in front of people can tell me about playing the bass guitar, another bass player or musician can critique me but not someone who has never played…..Professional athletes know what they are talking about, the rest of us are just spectators we have never been in an NBA game, Steve Jackson has and if he says James and Russ will not work with a weak coach and I believe him, because he's right, harden played no defense at all last year and evidently was not told too…..

The rockets only went on to have the best record in the league that year . What D’antoni did was stagger the minutes for CP3 and Harden . They started and Finished the games together but mostly during the game Harden and CP3 werent on the court at the same time . What that did was allow the two players to be themselves and it kept a playmaker on the court at all times .

They WANT that smoke that's going to be coming from that locker room if it don't work out...and Russ will truly deliver only the way he knows how. He's ALWAYS been a loose cannon. James just shows off for the sake of showing off. Let's see how those 2 go if things don't go as planned. Stacks got this one right.

If he can not control his mouth how can I respect his decision or will power in other areas ??? Look at the moronic overpaying of Chris Paul.. Now he brings in Russell Westbrook, A player with the worst 3 point shooting percentage in the entire league... A player whose decision making at the end of many games has cost his team many wins... A player of a humongous Ego who's always angry and cannot shoot the ball effectively, only good for dunks and assists... A player who pushed another player out of the way to grab a rebound so he can pad his stats....Morrey is way OVERRATED
