    Rockets try to acquire any star who becomes available. That's Morey's main MO, always has been.

    Harden & Westbrook on the same team?

    So is CP 3’s career going to die in the land of the red men?

    Harden and Russ both attacking the paint would be a PROBLEM for opposing defenses.

    However, Russ shooting Rockets-volume 3s could be a problem for Houston.

    I'm for it though. F*ck it.

    How is that a better fit than CP3? Paul can at least be used off the ball because he could shoot and he is a far superior defensive player than Westbrook is. Neither Russell nor Harden can play off the ball and Russell is actually a negative off the ball as he can't even stretch the floor since he's an awful shooter. He'd just be left wide open on the perimeter while his man clogs the middle.

    Because Westbrook and Harden are boys and have coexisted before. Not saying they will win a title, but it'll absolutely be fun to watch.


    Of course they need a big man. Either Capela stays or Adams goes with Russ to Houston.



    Also...Paul a good defender? At this age?

    I mean I would definitely prefer them going after a defensive wing like Covington, who appears to be available...but IDK what the f*ck Morey is doing.

    Come on, man. Think this through. It would be a complete & utter train wreck. There's not enough room on the court for the both of them.

    Not enough balls, not enough shots, not enough usage, not enough playoff chokes....

    It would be entertaining as hell for everyone except Rockets fans.
