I'm fairly shocked by this. Never understood why the Rockets were ever involved. I think Harden and Russ are a terrible fit.

What do you mean by this?  How did you have him?

I really wish you guys had gotten him (in terms of rooting against your team).

I love Russ, but not for us.  Everyone is screaming for stars and I understand why but this is a process.  Lets not rush it.

Paul isn’t going to be staying in OKC I’d imagine.

I would keep him, simply because no one wants that contract. He would be great to mentor the rebuild.

From Chris's stand point, he could get out of his contract, only if he was willing to take a tremendous lowball offer.  Its too much money to give away.

So fuck it, stay on a rebuilding team and make over 100 mil the next three years.  If he bitches I'd slap him lol

It worked in OKC when Harden played PG (off the bench).  Russ was good off the ball, this might be the only way to get him to change his game.

Harden wasn't a ball hog back then.

Rockets desperately want a title. We'll see it these guys can really play together, but I think they've got a shot now.
If you don't know where you're going, you might wind up somewhere else.

Agreed and I love Russ and I like Houston making this move...They had to do something

Russ and Harden our triple double machines and they have Capela

Knicks our young and the vets they have only have 2 year deals......they did the best thing they could do after not getting Durant/Kyrie

Today's NBA is a changed culture....They all want to play with each other (with friends) the moment they can

So let's think about it..........Go all in on RJ ...make sure you show him your all in, keep him happey, build around him and the min Zion can leave NO where are those two going to play?????????? RJ is going to get him to come to no better place than NYC where RJ is happy and those two are at that stage where there about to be the main guys in the NBA (and I am sure another will come at that time that is friends with those two and an all star

It was a good move for them.

CP3 wanted out after the locker room blowup.

Plus Rockets had to go all in since both LAs are likely to get past 1st round.

But they overpaid.

It could work but that does not mean it will work.  Should be interesting starting two guys who average close to a triple double, never happened before
