  • why are molly and stephen a not on the show???

  • NOT at all!

  • Even if Lebron, Michael Jordan, Bird, Magic, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell and Kobe would team up in their primes, Will Cain will still say "ain't enough to beat golden state tho"

  • They not even going to beat the Spurs boi.

  • Morey said closing the gap not they have caught them smh

  • James harden dosent have hart. He disappeared on his past playoff game

  • respect to the rockets but they have a lot to prove

  • "Closing the gap" is NOT the same as "caught the Warriors" Will…

  • Paul George just got traded to Thunder

  • this bitch ass white boy from dallas is cake

  • the rockets gave up possibly their bench and a 2018 1st round draft pick for a injury prone chris paul #Cp3ainttheanswer

  • their dumb….. when paul drives hes gunna get either the centers attention and his guard so he can either make a smooth pass to his teammates which can shoot 3s. or lob it to occapela( don't know how to spell his name no disrespect) xuz lets be honest other than shooters houston big man alot stronger

  • I said it Chris Paul is a overrated Bum I'm not even putting him in my top ten point guards right now y'all can't be serious this combination is supposed to give us fits GTFOH 😂😂

  • Meh. Probably not

  • The west is about to be a huge piece of sh*t

  • That host girl, what's her name?

  • Will Cain is right on this one

  • Am I the only one who, when finds out a player is traded I go straight to NBA 2K and see how that player looks in their new jerseys?

  • dude steph has been killing cp3 everytime they've matched up. we havent even brought up the other 3 guys

  • Give Rockets respect They are Trying so hard to get Very good players to compete with GSW

  • rockets not on the lvl of the warriors but they at a start sucks that they got rid of Patrick Beverley

  • houston is no getting paul george cause he is signed it the thunder

  • T wolves is the wave

  • We lost depth with the bench unit but CP3 is a good trade. The only issue is Ryan Anderson. Morey fucked up signing that sorry-ass garbage to a 80 million dollar contract.

    We better hope and pray somehow we can get Melo Anthony and trade Anderson….even if we have to throw in E. Gordon for a sweetener.

    And I want to see Rockets go after JJ Redick and Ben McLemore to shore up our bench unit. We need pieces like that in case we need another trade down the line.

    The problem with Morey, he doesn't know how to pick-up quality pieces. Thats his greatest weakness.

  • A back court with 2 players who are ball dominant, used to getting theirs and have not led their team to anywhere near a ring. Best back court in the league? Please. Not sure it's even better than what they have as CP3 and Harden could easily fail to click

  • LOL, what a retarded statement. If Rockets' back court is better than Warriors' then it means their front courts' made the difference. Yeah right, Zaza is Warriors' super weapon…

  • The Rockets should be a fun team to watch with CP3 and Harden, but no way in hell are they going to challenge the Warriors.  They probably won't even challenge the Spurs just b/c what a genius coach Pop is.  The Rockets need one more star player and another impact player for me to seriously consider them as challengers to the Warriors.  I hate to agree with that bitch Will Cain on this one.

  • They got beat by 40 without Leonard in the playoffs.

  • I swear Salley talks likes he was a legit player bak in his time. Sit down and be humble you don't know what you're saying most of the time

  • hahaha not even close if it was Paul George then rockets would been par with warriors but they end up getting Chris Paul 😂😂😂😂

  • Am I the only one bothered by how off point John Salley's tie is in this video?

  • If the Rockets get Iggy and Milsap then I say they caught up. Right now, even as a die hard Rockets fan I have to admit we are still far away from catching up to the Warriors.

  • I don't care what that guy said, we can still beat the warriors and get to the finales, haters are just going to hate, Just believe in clutch city

  • Idc how good the roster looks on paper. Harden and CP3 will not be able to play together.
