Dave macmanium needs to shut his ass up and go wash Lebum draws. Only team I put ahead of Houston is Clippers period. Houston has great chance at finishing top 3 in west

Westbrook need to play small forward and score and get 15 rebs a game and harden have 11 assists a game

Of course it's one of the factor ,the truth is their inconsistency to be able winning a title championship,creates bad atmosphere around the franchise,and the fans got bored of them.the manager has to take the right decision, it has to start first by fire the coach and looking for young rosters to change their playing style,to be able to compete with others teams. You know what, when you put 2 isolated players together, it creates disaster or confusion or conflict, this trade is the dumbest move on the nba.sorry Houston rockets fan,this team would be the worst team next season,they won't make the playoffs.

they made it seem like Westbrook is better than Harden. He basically owns Rockets
San Diego
San Diego Month ago
it doesn't matter who Rockets add.... or get rid of.... they will NEVER win a title with Harden on the team.... I have already been saying this for past five years.... Harden's ball hogging, dribble, dribble, dribble, stagnate the ENTIRE offense style of play WILL NEVER WIN in the NBA.... not to mention that Harden ALWAYS chokes in the Playoffs, against the other top defensive teams in the league.... just like he has ALWAYS DONE FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS in playoffs.
schmetty mcshmettington
Russ is a upgrade in this aspect he can't shoot like cp3 but he can dish just as good and he's faster then cp3 so fast breaks and driving to the hoop Russ will get to the line more

Rockets had their chance being up 3-2 to the Warriors, I think their window is closed.

Westbrook hasn't had his fair share of injuries. He had one big injury from that Beverly thing. He's been ultra durable otherwise. In terms of injuries him and Chris Paul can't be in the same conversation. P.s not a fan of WB just stating facts

I really hope the Rockets aren't done making moves. They need alot more to win the title.
Jigglypoof Month ago
How many damn guards do they need???? Their line-up is like 1 big and 4 guards. Then their bench is just more point guards.

Chris Paul got old too early like Steve Nash
Anthony Celestin
If Im Morey Im keeping the core together. But I feel they should trade Shumpert & Farried for Robert Convington. Have Daniel House as your starting SF & have your 4-5 man rotation off da bench be Rivers, Gordan, Green, Convington or Tyson Chandler(if neccessary)
Anthony Celestin
@Steven Anacker If so do it, go all in for it. Trade them & put draft picks in it. They need 1 more wing. Convington is like a PJ Tucker a hybrid SF/PF who can even play the small ball 5 if needed
Steven Anacker
Steven Anacker Month ago
Shump and Farried would not net Covington. There'd have to be picks involved.

I wish harden can win a chip and shave his beard off😩

No disrespect to Ramona Shelbourn but Rachel Nichols just has more energy 😂. I always feel like this is basketball ASMR when I hear her talk.
Next your they going to say Westbrook numbers went down
Why We Love Film
That’s why Analysts look so stupid most of the time. Their Journalists and only see the game from a Journalist and Fan point of view. They can’t comprehend that this game is about two things. 1. Money 2. Rings It doesn’t matter if 2 teammates absolutely HATE each other. If playing together gives them the best chance to win and earn that big payday, then bottle those emotions up and vent them out when y’all not playing together anymore. Simple No room for emotions in this game.
Think Before You React
Rockets really thought they could beat the Champs with CP3 SMH.
Steven Anacker
Steven Anacker Month ago
Unfortunately, we'll never know if they could beat the Champs with CP3. They've never played the Raptors in the playoffs.

Only thing Chris Paul is ever going to win is a participation trophy.

i feel like they need one more wing defender with size...maybe thabo or iggy if they could trade for him?

Well at least Westbrook will be completely free to play his low IQ basketball style under D'Antoni.

Just when I thought people were starting to wake up on how overrated Westbrook is all the sudden I have to hear this bullshit about Westbrook allegedly making a team a contender. Harden and Westbrook will be a failure and will most likely be eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

We'll talk chemistry when season start..Now,I'm more Excited to see Harden Russ & Tuck Craaaazy Outfits walking in each of their games 😎
David Stephens
David Stephens Month ago
Just watch them prove everyone wrong. You still got Eric gordon, capela, Austin rivers, and now Westbrook. And I don’t think the play will stay the same because it won’t be possible. They will change it up and it will work out

That bum all the way to the right lol he said Westbrook’s contract is so awful but he’s 4 years younger than Paul. How is russ contract worse than Paul’s ?? Lol. By the time Russ turns 34 his contract will be ending. Paul RIGHT NOW is 34 and his contract is just taking a hit. Smh. These bums on here crack me up.

Man if Houston get Iguodala and bring faried back they’ll have great team PG Russel Westbrook SG James Harden SF Danuel House PF P.J. Tucker C Clint Capela 6th man Eric Gordon 7. Austin Rivers 8. Andre Iguodala 9.Kenneth Faried 10. Tyson Chandler 11. Gerald Green 12. Isaiah Hartenstein 13. Anthony Bennett Looks pretty good to me even the bench backups are decent
Chris Month ago
Nobody else noticed when they showed Eric Gordon instead of CP3

@Not Dank lol fucking dumbass, Iggy is not a free agent. Learn some shit before you talk you inbred clown
minoba82 Month ago
@Not Dank Iggy isn't a free agent. Memphis has already said they aren't buying him out and plan to trade him.
Not Dank
Not Dank Month ago
Shady those are free agents. There’s a difference between trades and signing free agents. Stop trying to bait for likes
Isaiah Ebner
Isaiah Ebner Month ago
CP3 is still good and deserves all the respect and loyalty in the world, but Westbrook is superstar and Harden has even stated that they know how to play with each other. I think Westbrook could be that extra boost of energy that the Rockets have needed and is definitely an upgrade.
Big peepee Rashod
