    Meh, I don't think this makes the Rockets any better. Makes them worse and they lose assets in the deal.

    Two teams subtracting two negatives.

    Upside for Houston is less wear and tear on Harden and he will be fresher for playoffs.

    But Russel taking the ball out of Harden's hands will make them worse generally.

    So Houston's offense is going to be made up of two ball dominant flopping ISO players? Consider me not worried about the Rockets being a threat anymore.
    I wonder who's going to appear in all of those home insurance commercials with CP3 now?... Adams, Gallinari, or Schroder?

    Hot garbage for hot garbage. OKC specializes in these trades, I guess. This time last year, they traded Melo for Schröder.

    OKC got something of substance for a dude who isn't really that great anymore.

    WTF are Houston trying to do

    then they really need to go get players there, some ip guys and a roster that suffered huge downgrade on its two main pieces. And the best they were able to get last two seasons were a 4th place and 6 games first round exit.

    Morey trying to keep up with the Joneses. Capped out. Crapped on by Jimmy Butler. Harden and CP3 had to be separated ASAP. This was his only option, and he’s paying a premium price for a guy who “could” make his whole team implode.

    Not enough popcorn in the world for when Westbrook starts whining about Harden’s usage.

    One thing in their favor is that they’re both really good at getting assists when the ball is in their hands. 7 seconds or less with either guy running the point should be interesting IF their supporting cast shoots well.

    how many years left on CP3's deal?

    Will OKC look to move Adams for picks next?

    This is worth a shot for Houston. They know CP and Harden does not work and won't get them to the promised land. It also sounds like CP has created problems in the locker room. So why not? I think Westbrook and Harden is a better combo and CP and Harden but it depends upon which Westbrook shows up. Who knows but worth a shot.
