      @ScrewTapeCity-SouthPark Chris Carter was an elite basketball player. Most of the geek white dudes and white women shouldn't be talking NBA basketball especially not in the majority like it is and like it's become even more. White society is so used to seeing a white face that it's ok to throw 3 white faces out of 4 out there on all these NBA topics. Straight up BULL****

      First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright D Wade and Lebron would work a lot better today than the other thing you mentioned.

    GSW success was not because of their "system", give me a break. Two MVP's and 2 all-star level players is why they were successful. And the comment about "Well before they had KD they won 73 games!"...they had an expected W-L record of 67-15, which is great, but they were extremely fortunate in close games during the regular season and their record was inflated. And then they ended up losing to Cavs in the finals anyway, a team which they completely steamrolled the following season once their talent increased after Durant joined. Talent is far and away the most important.

    I grew up in the Hakeem Olajuwon era. I know that the game has changed but I’d really like to see the Rockets add a somewhat dominate big man to this team. It’d have to be a modern big man that can run the floor for long stretches, but I think it would take a lot of pressure off of the guards during certain moments of the game (third quarter) and at key times during long playoff runs.

    Everyone was saying the same thing when Chris Paul was traded there. That team was an injury away from dethroning the Warriors.

    This is why I can't take Broussard seriously. He says in 2016 Steph, Draymond, and Klay aren't blowing your mind......excuse me Steph Curry won a unanimous MVP in 2016 and before the playoffs it was almost universal that he was the best player in the league before Lebron took the title back in the playoffs.

    Anybody remember when all the talk about CP3 when he joined Houston was the same talking point? How the move didntmake sense and how it wouldn't work? Now they're saying the same thing about Westbrook. I'm not buying it. They'll make it at least to the 2nd round.

    Saying they got much better is kinda foolish. 2 good players doesn’t make a good team. 2 good players who work well together make a good team. Harden and Russ used to work but in this point in their career it won’t work

    Chris keeps mentioned D-Wade as an example of a poor three point shooter so I had to look it up cause it didn’t feel right. I was wrong. Did anyone else realize he was a 29% career 3P shooter? That’s bad.

    I believe Westbrook will need to adjust. He's in Harden's home (Rockets). Westbrook is the new-comer. He can't come there and think he can take over. He now has to play a role, the 2 spot role. OKC he was the LEAD guy, ok LEAD, but here and now a change has to come. I don't believe Westbrook would pass it as much as Harden would to him.

    Having watched Russ quite a bit, he tends to go ball dominent once his teammates go cold. I think that he will be willing/capable to be a playmaker above all.

    Low IQ ppl say “You need to shoot at the 2 guard” smh shut uuuuup. Use your head and play to your strengths. Stop doing what everyone else is doing.
    If you are a slasher and you receive the ball and your match up is giving you space... ATTACK. Russ is powerful, if HE was smart he can make that happen

  • Christopher Grandison

    No matter what the fit or the system is, replacing Chris Paul with Russell Westbrook, in any one of last year's playoff scenarios, is a great move for the Rockets. They now have a much better and different option to go to.

    Just because you dont like ice cream and french fries at the same time.. does not mean the other person does not like ice cream and french fries together. Stop using your feels to project what a team can or can not do next season.
