    So he wasn't willing to be more off the ball with Paul but ok with Westbrook?

    Yeah because he had to score 40 a game because cp3 was always injured and washed out. He did what it takes to win

    And cp3 cannot beat his defenders and doesnt command double teams

    I like the idea of running a few post plays for Harden instead of 20 second iso on top. I think he can be even more deadly or deadlier then what he is with a variety of high elbow post action or even a few off the ball baseline slips

    He has to move off-ball more often with Westbrook. He doesn't need to as much with CP3 because he could shoot.

    Also, Paul has a tendency to be ridiculously passive on offense, always passing up open shots and not willing to shoot. Westbrook is the opposite, meaning Harden will need to actively move to take advantage of Westbrook's aggressiveness on offense.

    Eh , some forums don't approve of C&P entire articles …. I aint paying for the Chron.

    Worthless rag and Feigen is just a yesman - cant write anything negative …. or they'll cut him from the team.

    He was clearly trying to avoid hammy problems. Trying to avoid penetration......

    The usual method for getting around Chron paywalls is to Google the article title. "How WB will blahblah" and the top result will be the paywalled article. However, if you go to it straight from your Google search, it will show the full article.

    I didn't try it for this specific article, but this method had never failed to work for paywall chron stuff.
