65W team, a very efficient ISO player in 2018, that 40pt series clinching game vs Utah, arguably one game away from an NBA championship. He was that close.

In 2019 I only remember two things:
1) His perfect game in Oracle that brought us an unexpected win without Harden
2) He jeopardized his own chance of winning by a) signing that contract 2) his rapid decline

Overall I don't hate him. Still a HOF, though ringless.
RealGM loves you, Melissa.

I thoroughly enjoyed him as a Rocket.
Perhaps the best pure point guard in Rockets history, however brief his stay.

Sad that we couldn't get a ring for him.
And he couldn't do the same for us.

Especially having gotten so close....so damn close. :nonono:


Wish him the best wherever OKC sends him next...preferably in the Eastern Conference.
Evolution is a process.

Stay tuned.
