    He just doesn't look like the same player before his hamstring injury just wondering if anyone else think their is lingering effects . He seems to be avoiding driving to the basket.

    Oh course he's not healthy, when he first got that hamstring injury it was reported that the Rockets were then pushing harder for Butler because they knew that was going to linger the entire year

    It just looks like he isn't trust his hamstring afraid to hurt it again causing him to avoid doing alot things.

    anyone who follows him on insta knows that he's been f*cking around basking in his mvp glory, promoting new shoes, etc since game 7. he's just out of shape

    So many excuses .. people giving Chris the same passes where it is obvious he ain’t and will never be the same again. He obviously had a atrocious offensive night. Overall he has been good this season without being his amazing self.I think he will be fine. Just an underwhelming offensive night

    Seem like more than that because he looked good in the Laker game and the Utah game before he got hurt

    Wether its Harden, Paul, or Gordon none of them have played up to snuff. No one looks in shape, be it injuries or whatever that's the main reason for the state of its team. It's best players are not bringing it.

    I don't think Harden is 100% well. He just doesn't respond quickly as he usually does. Whether it is the bug going through the team or Harden's hamstring, we will have to wait and see. By Thursday's game against GS, if Harden still looks less than 100%, we will know it is his hamstring.

    I'm also leaning toward CP3 not 100% well due to the fight with Rondo...I think he is playing through a hurt too.

    Dont you think the team would have picked up on this already during player physical before the season

    He’s probably around 90-95% but I think the biggest problem is he’s becoming too predictable on offense I think teams are going to live with him shooting step back and side step 3. Harden has never been a great 3 point shooter. He’s a decent one and can get hot behind the arc with the best of them but he needs to switch it up. It’s either lay up, lob to capela or iso shoot a 3. If he added just 2-4 mid range shots a game it would open up the offense a lot especially with Chris Paul not playing up to superstar level.

    He's fat and possibly drunk.

    At the age of 29 it's possible to see some declining athleticism as well.

    Either he isn't trying hard anymore (after winning MVP) or something wrong with him
