    you are pretty childish for a 50 year old but, agreed. Harden hasnt reached Hakeem till he wins 2 rings. Hakeem is the reason we all Rockets fans. Harden can't touch that. But whats true is that he is great in his own way and has the ability to reach great feats.

    I'm eternal like the 99ers, young and old are jealous of us.

    He won't reach Hakeem's level unless he wins

    2 rings...

    and an MVP
    and a DPOY
    and 2 Finals MVPs

    I have faith in him to win all that except DPOY but he can make up for that by being top 10 all time in assists or top 5 in Triple doubles when its set and done

    There's a better chance somebody revives dinosaurs from DNA and start a theme park on a remote island than that happening.

    Harden has a slim chance of winning everything u mentioned other than DPOY

    I would put him right up there with Hakeem as the greatest Rocket ever if he accomplished those things minus the DPOY...dude is putting up all-time statlines and is 1 of the greatest offensive weapons in NBA history

    Well...I'm probably older than tinman and I totally agree with him. I love Harden, but I really question his "Clutch IQ". His decisions at the end of games especially in playoffs and big games is questionable. Think back to the WCF against the GSW and the big turnover at the very end of game one when a timeout would have been the thing to do. Or setting the record for playoff turnovers in a game...ouch. Or the meltdown in game 6 against the Spurs last season. How about this season at Boston?

    On the other hand...no player had a better Clutch IQ than Hakeem...3 years a UH and 3 years in the final 4. His playoff numbers always went up in every category. My Man Cave still has a Hakeem jersey and shirts from the championships, etc. I love Harden, but he's got a way to go before he can be compared to the Dream!

    Why? Is there a specific reason why you can’t move on?

    If is that word used by Tmac fans

    If is a strong word

    Do you think Harden can carry a team, do you have any doubts? do you think he has weaknesses

    those are real questions.

    only jealous fans are trying to comparing players of this era to dudes who won championships and mvps

    99ers move through time and space, so moving on is not what we do, we just keep moving through eternity

    Harden's prime overlaps with arguably the best team ever (GSW)

    Who did we lose to last year?

    A Spurs team without Leonard and Tony Parker.

    Where?

    AT TOYOTA CENTER.

    To reach Hakeem level, Harden would have to surpass Hakeem level.
    It's not going to be easy.....
