Ive been sayin that..........nikkas are gon be surprised when they really struggle and prolly wont make the playoffs this year. They lost too many pieces even tho none of them were great players they add up. Specially Parsons who was awesome last year

Lol, just imagine Who Harden's gonna pass the ball to when he dribbles the air of it and 3 seconds left on the clock. Ariza and Beverly to create a shot for themselves lol. And this situation comes up often in Houston's iso half court system.

They have expirers and draft picks to send to Boston in a potential deal for Rajan Rondo, so they can still get better this year.

I keep telling people they lost too much and didn't gain back enough. They're going to have a somewhat tough time in the west.

I think they can certainly get better through FA. This season, they likely won't be as good (unless they struck gold with some of the guys they brought on short-term deals this summer) and may struggle to lock up a playoff spot.

I mean, next summer, signing Millsap and a trade (using Lin TPE) for an upgrade @ PG, with careful use of cap space/exceptions/pick(s) could improve the team, right? I don't think it's all doom/gloom in Houston for next couple years, but Morey will need to nail next summer to position this team for the future. Although a change at HC could certainly mix things up a bit...

If Harden even plays even a little close to his regular season self they'll be fine in the playoffs, but this team rests on him not shitting the bed every post season, Howard can't do it by himself.
