  • Stephen Silas.

  • A brand new era we should mention he was actually a finalist for the Rockets job when Mike D'Antoni got it.

  • Antonis out.

  • Silas is in.

  • You just heard.

  • Would say he could deal.

  • Yeah, but for five years ago, he could deal with big time personalities.

  • But Jay, you're saying right now with rockets need to deal with is deciding.

  • Are they contender or what are they planning to do with so much money tied up in two dudes?

  • Well, that's the question.

  • Look at this team has talent.

  • They double down triple down with small ball with Daryl Morey.

  • It did not work out.

  • Um, now you have a new head coach, even though he has incredible experience.

  • Worked with Luca.

  • Don Check has worked with a lot of big time player Stephon Curry as well.

  • I guess the question is, will this style of basketball work and if not, what tradable assets do you have?

  • That could make you change up what your new style is going to be?

  • So if you're looking to market, Dressel Westbrook and James Harden are or do $80 million next year.

  • So what are the tradable assets and The biggest asset that you have is probably Russell Westbrook.

  • Now, I'm not saying to break these two up, but if you're gonna run it back with small ball, you have to change up the style in which you play.

  • You need to get James Harden to buy into that.

  • I don't know what pieces that will require in order for Houston to come out of the West, but let's be real about a guy is the West is loaded.

  • The Western loaded.

  • I know people use that argument.

  • Well, look happen to the Bucks this year and you know, other teams that came out.

  • But like look, this year was unprecedented.

  • We played in the bubble.

  • It didn't work out that way.

  • But Houston, can you win with small ball is a question I don't think you can.

  • It's been proven.

  • Yeah, it doesn't look like they'll be coming out of the West, that's for damn sure.

  • I think when you look at the teams that's there, whether it's the Lakers or the Clippers are Golden State or Denver, Utah and Dallas is there.

  • And so, yeah, how do you run it back?

  • This was This was invented by Daryl Morey.

  • Four.

  • Ah, for Mike D'Antoni.

  • This is what they wanted to do.

  • They want a lot of games doing it, but I don't see where they're going to improve by running it back.

  • I think what you try and do in this situation is you try to just rebuild with some assets.

  • Whether it's both gone or one gone, Who can you get the most value for?

  • Is it a Westbrook to the New York Knicks because of this not crackle Pop in some of the things that he adds to the equation?

  • Is it a James Harden?

  • Two Potentially, maybe, Ah Yonas connection in Milwaukee to pair that up and maybe you get future assets from Milwaukee because of that, Um, I don't know where it pushes them out in terms of luxury tax and if they willing toe do all of those sort of things.

  • But I think those two together and I said it from the beginning.

  • I never thought that those two together would ever work, uh, in terms of winning a championship in bringing a championship to Houston.

  • Well, that's why I said, if you're James Harden, how how patient are you?

  • How patient Are you 31 years old?

  • Alright.

  • Like, are you looking to rebuild at this stage of your career?

  • And also, the last time the Rockets have selected in the first round has been since 2015.

  • That was Sam Dekker.

  • No selections in this year's NBA draft.

  • Eso It's like, How are you?

  • Are you moving?

  • So if you're James Harden, what moves are we making for me to win in the next couple of years?

  • If we can't make those moves, then is it time for James?

  • Hard to think about going somewhere else if he wants to win a championship.

  • So if you so if you move, I mean, I'm just assuming.

  • Let's say you move.

  • Westbrook, what are you getting back and return this championship worthy to pair with James Harden?

  • Well, you clear out some cap space, you clear some cap space.

  • Maybe you get an Alfa pay and maybe you get a Kevin knocks some teams that maybe you can.

  • Some guys that can have, maybe for a year.

  • But then you could maybe they come off your books.

  • Bobby Portis, maybe.

  • Yeah, but now you.

  • Now you get now 31 dog.

  • Now you make me 32 if I say or you use all those assets and you try to lure somebody else into a bigger trade for a bigger time free agent.

  • But you're also, but you also need to change up the style of basketball you have to play.

  • You can play small ball anymore.

  • But who are you getting?

  • That's big that I compare with James Harden to win the championship, right?

  • Like, who are you getting that like you're talking about trade for expiring contracts or guy who's up So you could trade for Ayaan is to come to a Houston opposed to him going to Milwaukee.

  • Yeah, I don't know if I would say Janette's ever go to Houston.

  • I think John is probably gonna stay in Milwaukee.

  • But what I'm saying here, what you're saying, A big time player you was trying to think.

  • Who you gonna get to be in the West, though you probably want to try to keep Harden Westbrook and then try to bring in the third piece.

  • Like Robert Covering like Robert Covington is talented.

  • P.

  • J.

  • Tucker is talented, but this team is really, really small.

  • But we've seen them with a third piece.

  • Right.

  • We've seen SIAC.

  • Um, we've seen Chris.

  • Paul.

  • We've seen James Harden.

  • What do you mean?

  • We saw them together and they always CP three CP three, CP three and James Harden.

  • Yeah, they were.

  • I mean, we saw them together.

  • We saw all three of them together.

  • The question is Eric Gordon, like, you know, can he Is he that player that can take you to the next level?

  • But he's been injury plagued.

  • He's been plagued by injuries.

  • So these are all the questions that this team has to address moving forward.

  • And it does lead to the question of James Harden thinks he could win.

  • Ah, World Championship in Houston.

  • It does.

  • That's the question that you're gonna ask.

  • You don't have to go get a top five due to go with him, though, and that's hard to find.

  • That's hard to find right now.

  • It's hard to find any justification for what Justin Turner did.

  • So what should the punishment be?

  • We want to hear from you ate, ate, ate, say ESPN, 88 79 3776 I just wanna put in one last word on Daryl Morey, and this is coming from a fan, not a guy that played in the n b A.

  • A guy that played in the NFL.

  • This dude could be makes you catch radius for Key that you gotta make sure, in my opinion, this guy could be my GM any day.

  • Why, Yeah, he may ultimately never win an NBA championship, but he's always swinging for the fences.

  • It's a lost at.

  • The Rockets made the playoffs the last eight years.

  • Believe it or not, that's the longest playoff streak in the NBA.

  • So and some of these names you might laugh at because some of these guys were acquired over the course of his tenure.

  • But if you're getting be Dwight Howard, when Dwight was a thing, you're getting Chris Paul, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Clint Capela, Patrick Beverley Mantra is Harold.

  • Some of those guys are bigger stars than others, but every single year he looks at it and says, What can we do to get better?

  • This dude made more trades with the Rockets and most guys will make in their entire career.

  • He's always swinging for the fences, and if I'm not a Laker fan, or I'm not a Celtics fan or I'm not a Warriors fan when they're back up.

  • If I'm a fan of one of the other 27 teams in the league, I want that guy because he is going for it.

  • Every single.

  • And that's why I think I'm slowly becoming a fans and 76 years I picked them last year.

  • I thought they were gonna get to the championship.

  • It didn't work out.

  • But now, with a guy like Daryl Morey, when it becomes official, can surround Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons with the right pieces to help them win a world championship.

  • Well said, Look at their roster right now.

  • History says it won't look like that when the Sixers begin on day one.

Stephen Silas.
