@  majik19 : (28 May 2015 - 08:05 PM) Offensively, I have no doubt that Love would be a great fit. Defensively... not so much. I think it's more important to upgrade the 1 than the 4 this offseason, assuming D-mo is healthy.
@  Mario Peña : (28 May 2015 - 07:08 PM) I can't make it but I thought I'd post that for the Houston guys.
@  Mario Peña : (28 May 2015 - 07:07 PM) From the Red Rowdies: Do you want to greet the Rockets today as they arrive back? Go to 8402 Nelms Houston, TX 77061 around 3:30 ‪#‎Support‬
@  Cooper : (28 May 2015 - 06:15 PM) would have to strip the roster to get him, let him lose in la with 40 yr old kobe and crazy rondo.
@  thenit : (28 May 2015 - 06:08 PM) Love interested in Lakers, Rockets and Celtics. Anyone here who wants him ?
@  majik19 : (28 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) It was a great year, and I think Harden will look at Game 2 and Game 5 and strive to be better. If he had gone out on a high note (say Game 4), there would probably be less motivation. But not with a game like that.
@  SadLakerFan : (28 May 2015 - 10:01 AM) Great season. Harden looked perplexed out there, almost like Lebron in 2010. He'll figure things out.
@  Johnny Rocket : (28 May 2015 - 08:31 AM) Thanks, Rox--great season!
@  RudyT1995 : (28 May 2015 - 05:43 AM) Wonder what he'll do this year to make Cuban look like a fool.
@  RudyT1995 : (28 May 2015 - 05:43 AM) Interesting off-season coming up. Time for Morey to work his magic.
@  Mario Peña : (28 May 2015 - 04:57 AM) What a year! It's a great time to be a Rockets fan!
@  miketheodio : (28 May 2015 - 04:06 AM) many records were broken this series
@  Willk : (28 May 2015 - 04:03 AM) Morey's time not team
@  Willk : (28 May 2015 - 04:02 AM) it is now Morey's team
@  Willk : (28 May 2015 - 04:02 AM) the future is bright
@  JY86er : (28 May 2015 - 04:00 AM) If you told me this team would lose in the conf finals after losing out on Bosh and Parsons. I'd say u were cray cray. thank u Rockets
@  cointurtlemoose : (28 May 2015 - 03:55 AM) Very, very proud of the season we had. From Morey to McHale to the players. All 3 of those dealt with plenty of roadblocks, and fought through them all the way to the WCF
@  jorgeaam : (28 May 2015 - 03:51 AM) Oh well, it was a great season anyway, teams and writers will definitely not take this team so lightly again
@  thenit : (28 May 2015 - 03:47 AM) Hard to fault harden, only 3 games that were close was when he went god mode. the team needed Dmo to be a second go to go to slow the pace and create his own shot. Also misses his D since Jones can't defend anyone who is good
@  cointurtlemoose : (28 May 2015 - 03:38 AM) Cmon Howard, no reason for that dude.

I was worried from the start he might try to hold this team hostage with his anxiety disorder. He says its a player = commodity driven league, sure I'll give him that, but he hasn't demonstrated he's a commodity, only a headache so far... Rockets FO hasn't handled this the best way possible, but Royce played his cards quite poorly.

Woj put it best when he said this has become an embarrassing spectacle.

White didn't realize how little leverage he has. That he seriously thought he could hold him hostage over playing time is....unbelievable.

Sad, because I, along with most, were on his side at the beginning when this first started before he began making a mockery of himself.

I was too. Did you read the deal about the globetrotters? That in itself should wake his butt up. I can see us severing ties and him getting over it and landing with another team. He's got the problems of a cousins with the attitude of a griffin/marbury. You remember the vasoline.

What was the ordeal about him saying that he shouldn't have brought it up in the first place? I thought that's what this whole charade is about.

white is out of bounds with the comments on twitter. I didn't like this draft pick from the beginning, but later came around when I saw this guys talent. white is using his condition to try and gain favorable treatment within the team. a nba player is 2 equally important but seperate parts (mental and physical). this guy seems to have the physical down, but unable to handle the mental. we do not have time to hold his hand. the rockets have gone over and above the call of duty trying to help this guy and yet he continues to want more. at some point you have to draw the line in the sand and say look royce it's time to man up. if his condition is as bad as he is trying to make it sound then maybe the nba is not for him. if he can't handle the mental part of the game then cut ties with him. I hate to start beating the I hate mc hale drum again. but this was his desired pick. I say we cut ties with both.

I agree with what everyone has said. The rants on Twitter are completely out of line. The issues Royce has should have been talked about; prior to the draft, or; when he and the Rockets discussed his travelling plan. Even if the Rockets gave into his "demands" at this time, how long until he has more? This is an exact example of giving a man an inch and him taking a mile.
