    This guys effort level is beyond terrible offense, defense, etc. he’s an elite scorer but not somebody that motivates other players. Horrible body language, blaming others, walking up the court etc.

    You seem to have watched the game, since you pointed out his body language.

    Did you also miss all the times he passed to a completely open teammate, only for them to brick the shot? Pretty hard to motivate someone when they're wide open and miss.

    He is steadily declining. He'll retire a ringless fool. Who ever can't see that is a savage and an idiot.

    Tbf Harden was never that guy, that's one really good reason why having a guy like Chris Paul was good for this team and got us an injury away from winning the chip against the best team ever, it's not just about talent, Harden is unmatched there, but i think you need to have that kind of leadership on the court if you want to win, especially when you have a player's coach.

    Ever since that Spurs series, I always had doubts he would ever win a ring as the #1 option. He's just a terrible leader. When things are going to ****, he just sulks. We've seen him doing this time and time again, especially in the playoffs but some people will dickride him like they do Lebron until he retires.

    The biggest mistake we will regret this decade is not trading him while he still has peak value to a team like the Knicks to nab all their assets. We clearly should be rebuilding right now. We tried our best to beat the Warriors in these past 5 years and all we got was a pat on the back. Now the Warriors dynasty is over and we should looking to rebuild instead of trying to win with the oldest team in the league.

    MDA runs him into the ground and Rockets still lose.

    And when he has a 50 point game this thread will look bad.

    Did you just cut and paste from some old threads in CF? sounds so familiar.

    CP3 is super annoying for a reason. You need nags to get things done and make sure others are getting things done... Naggers for life.

    It’s pretty simple. Get a real head coach.

    That won’t solve all the problems but it certainly will help some of the major ones.

    But who am I kidding? We’re going to keep MDA and lose in the playoffs with relative ease.

    I’ll continue to appreciate the best player we’ve had since Hakeem.

    Also, I’m getting pretty tired of the inevitable CF meltdown after every loss—and yet I can’t help but participate.

    Year after year Harden continues to prove that he is not a leader. He does not have the character or the heart or the pride to be. I think today's performance is the end of his career for this year's MVP. It's time for James to think what he wants to do with his career.

    lol leadership is the most overrated narrative on this forum. CP3 choked away a series with a way more talented Clippers team against our back ups. Where was that leadership?? Fact is talent wins and we simple don’t have enough.
