  • Am I The Only One Who’s Annoyed That Dantoni Is Still Coach?

  • Man I want this to work but I highly doubt it will. Training two old dogs new tricks man 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • This trade is a disaster waiting to happen. If you thought that Harden and CP3 clashed. Wait until Harden and Westbrook go at it. They already had bad blood when Harden was in OKC. Why do you think Harden eft OKC??? You heard it from me FIRST!!!

  • I bet Russell won't be averaging a triple double in Houston. I bet he gets frustrated in theplayoffs after they get ousted in the second round.


  • The relocation came and bit them in the ass

  • Literally the only team that was stopping the Rockets from winning it all the last 2 years was the Warriors.

  • D’antoni will never win a championship. He’s offensive heavy type of coach. Defense wins championships

  • Guys, we gotta stop that ones gotta sacrifice as they will not play all the time together, actually the opposite. It is the best team they have ever played in like that. Houston were top team this season if not the overpowered warriors that would have blown away Toronto if KD was in

  • Championship trade Steven Adams for capella please

  • I beg to differ. Huston is now the old OKC. 2 biggest ball hogs alive. Durant can play off ball. Now the Durant is basically the whole roster. Huston is fucked.

  • All these people do is judge sit tf back and just watch these players play damn.

  • At OKC , that's when Durant let OKC down as the man.

  • Harden should defer to Westbrook for 3 and a half quarters and let Harden be the closer if they really want to win he'd still average in the 20s these analysis just repeat each other nobody uses their brain

  • But they don't win in the playoffs that way

  • Check me out Rc Raw like & subscribe

  • it doesnt fucking matter OKC will never win a championship, not counting sonics

  • It simple when harden sits out Westbrook gon do his thing

  • Everybody on the rockets dick now

  • Still Hardens team westbrook just a peice to the rockets

  • Its gone work i saw Westbrook playing off the ball in the Olympics and the pressure he put on the defense is amazing

  • But they haven’t won with this system

  • trust me the ball will be pass...or what's the point of letting them play together?... Ain't no body team when winning.

  • would've loved to see this big 3 in Houston again 😣

  • Russ if he uses his head can break the assists per game and season total records.

  • Honestly, it’s really gonna come down to Westbrook willing to stop stat chasing. If he can’t do that then it’ll be a first round exit at best for us.

  • Does ESPN talk about other sports besides basketball? Its not even the most famous sport in the world and it seems that's all they talk: speculate, drama, comebacks, a bunch of grade school topics... Its ridiculous. All I see is basketball!!

  • Have you met Westbrook?! Defer to Harden... ok...

  • It won't work, especially under the current coach Mike d.

  • Now the Rockets are going to be waiting for Kevin Durant to sign at some point LOL

  • Jalen "Kawhi 99% to Raptors" Rose. These media got zero credibility, just talking same topics every damn day.

  • The media always tryna start some kind of beef smh u people is krazy



  • 2 years ago he russ was mvp now people acting like he washed. Espn nba coverage is just crazy. Its like this with their coverage of every player.

    • It's not that hes washed its that he is a stat padder. He put up empty stats and got eliminated in the first round 3 years in a row. You cant win with Westbrook, Durant couldn't, PG couldnt, I mean look at how many great players emerged as soon as they left OKC.

  • He deferred to Paul George thus giving Paul George the best season of his career. Get over it, stop hating on Russ so hard.

  • I love the image with the 3 OKC mvps. It honestly proves that Kevin Durant is 7 feet tall.

  • I’m sure this will end well

  • These guys will look foolish trying to defer to each other. It won't work. Just play them 24 minutes each and never together. :-) P.S. D'Antoni is not a winner and will never win a championship.

  • Yeah its not okc but its only c now, since the thunder is not ok :""

  • Cyeaas

  • You still won't win shit Harden with your bullshit playstyle

  • Where they get these titles didn't he do that with pg

  • Fuck it call westcook MoBuckets cause that’s all he wanna get

  • Lol lemme know how that "defer" works out for you!bruh who you kiddin???

  • Westbrook and Harden are ball hogs.

  • Well, LeBron went to Miami and DWade gave in. KD went to the bay and Curry gave in. I think it’s time for Harden to grow up a little and know that he’s a star, but not the main star.

  • It doesn’t matter if they are ball dominant It only matters if they can generate double team situation

  • This is wrong. You actually have to put the ball in the smaller, faster players hands. Harden could legit average 40ppg playing off the ball. Imagine the lane being open with Brodie driving and Harden getting the easiest baskets he's ever had. Just gotta think about winning.

  • I still think Ross is better than harden. Russ does way more. But they are friends. They know how to play. Fuck with others are saying

  • Crazy

  • This video is pointless, he already deferred to PG in OKC, people say it wont work because they dont want it to work

  • Sorry to say this as a rockets fan but we aren’t going anywhere

    • Tahziyahwan Ghalalyam boy what is your name

    • Tyquell Scott Go root for another team and don’t jump on the bandwagon when we win this championship

  • Westbrook aint clutch

  • I hate listening to Jalen Rose analysis; it surprises me he even played at the pro level. He is definitely NOT coach material. Sorry, true.

  • Ya'll crazy , if they mostly play 1 at atime 30 min each, I got them #1 only gs could beat them !

  • I wonder how 2 vs 5-half court; new NBA offense scheme will turn out next year. Each of them will have 12 seconds per session. lol

  • I see them losing to the Clippers or Denver in the 2nd round they might go to WCF tho

  • Rockets is Harden's team, Russ is not an idiot, he know's that. He respects Harden and what he has done for the Rockets and can put aside his ego or pride. Beside they are friends and former team mates, they also have one goal in mind, they both want that chip badly. They will make it work, it will be interesting to see how.

  • Just need KD to make a u turn and join the Rockets and after they choke to Lebron again, everything will be okay

  • Here's the things is... Westbrook can only point guard

  • Get up for me is in and out of jail. And no one come to bail me out. Where were you. My Truth is here you fight for have the money for Attorneys bail...YOU GONE BE SACRAFICE..

  • These two can work together? Now this is B.S. !

  • It's nice that the show posts things about Jalen whenever he starts to speak. Member of Fab Five at Michigan, 1999-00 NBA Most Improved Player, Co-host, Jalen & Jacoby, ESPN2. I for some reason dunno why my imagination keeps adding "His known favorite number is 81" to that list... lol

  • Bless his heart that's why the Rockets need a new coach!

  • If the rockets don't make championship d antoni needs to be fired

  • Is it me or do people forget that it’s on the coach to make it work?

  • I have a feeling that Westbrook should be the ball movement guy most of the time tbh, he's so successful at that. And if him and harden always switched up on being the playmaker then they could confuse teams and be deadly af, it would be less predictable like their iso

  • Russ played off the ball for Schroeder and pg13 these guys are talking out their ass

  • This is Houston’s last season. They won’t win anything, you can argue they’ve gotten worse as a team even though they have more “star power.” After this season, when they lose again, you trade both Harden and Westbrook, and you get rid of that BUM coach Mike D’antoni, who they should gave already fired, and Houston still wouldn’t have won, but they’d have a better shot. Blow it all up, and start the rebuild

  • Idiots play wes at point harden at shooting guard

  • Harden and Westbrook are going to be the most entertaining duo to watch and that's faxx

  • Rockets shud fire d’toni and hire a marc Jackson

  • Check out my farewell mix to the brodie on my channel

  • Check out my farewell mix to the brodie on my channel

  • Check out my farewell mix to the brodie on my channel

  • Harden and Westbrook should create a new method of scoring. Both should put one hand on the ball and shoot it to get those collab points.

  • The media just looking for something negative to say bout this

  • the only team to beat the Rockets was the GSW MEGA TEAM...Thats MFers just watched 2-3 years where no other NBA team could touch the yall want to throw Denver, Portalnd, Utah ahead of the Rockets....Clippers nor the Lakers cn shoot with the Rockets...WE'LL BLOW THEM OFF THE FLOOR

  • The media is going to try and make it Russ vs harden all year watch
