Small chance of that...

I'm curious to see what happens with Rose after this season. Never got the impression he loved playing basketball. It feels like the only reason he's still playing is because he's got that giant Adidas contract to honor. But I can't see any team picking him up after this (although him going to China to play would be interesting).

I know he gets tossed around in those "what if" scenarios. But I still wonder if he'd really have been that good if he stayed healthy. The game kind of changed and I think he would have struggled regardless.

He was so freaking athletic and also a decent defender. I think he'd still have been drat good if he had enough shooters around him. Not Steph or Harden, but still pretty scary.

The rockets offense is really simple when it comes down to it. It really boils down to endless Harden high screens. Or CP3.

And when it breaks down Harden is so crazy in iso that he can still get buckets.

I think people will start trying hard traps and fouling the poo poo out of Harden and CP3 once the playoffs roll around.
I don't know how many teams have the personnel to force the ball out of Harden's hands while simultaneously fouling the poo poo out of CP3 so he can't get the ball. But OKC and GSW will try.
