    In terms of playing basketball Harden > Westbrick.....and it's not close.

    Take Westbrick off the Thunder last year and replace him with Harden and that's a better team, take Harden off the Rockets and replace him with Westbrick and the Rockets are a much worse team.

    You can't really teach intelligence. No amount of coaching will add 30 points onto a players IQ.

    This thread isn't about talent. It's about drive, effort, and heart; all of which Harden tends to lack in the playoffs. :(

    Exactly. This is the myth about westbrooks "heart" and hardens "laziness"

    Harden makes it look easy and westbrook makes it look difficult.

    Ill take hardens strolling layups in a half court set over westbrooks stop and pop 18 footers all day.

    Hardens step back jumper will age well. Pierce could get that stepback off into his mid 30s

    If westbrooks 18 footers arent on then it becomes a chuck fest. Once he slows down athletically it will be tough for him to get that open off stop and pops later.

    Harden is going to age so much better due to his playstyle.

    But you don't understand. Russ TRIES harder. Everyone knows the Warriors got where they are today not because they're talented, but because they try really hard.

    Or something like that, I'm guessing. I'm not really sure what point he was trying to make.

    That's a ridiculous statement. Is shooting your way out of a game better than checking out? Both seem like a lack of effort to me

    Bottom line = James Harden is better at every aspect of basketball

    I don't consider you have our Houston Rockets at heart and certainly not Harden himself. I would have Harden ten times over Westbrook.
    He is our team's leader and should be respected for his performance! Y

    I think quitting is the absolute worst thing a NBA franchise player can do. It is disrespect to the game, disrespecting the franchise and owners, disrespecting the entire fanbase, disrespect to the city of Houston and disrespect to the player himself

    So with that said, quitting is far worse than shooting bricks.

    So with that said again, Harden has the higher IQ

    This is the same dumbass logic local radio fatass josh innis the penis uses. He said he would rather watch Westbrook miss 59 shots than hardens lame style. I'm convinced swygurl is josh pinnis

    Bruh you try carrying rynos sturdy ass and air (ball) gordon through the whole season and playoffs.

    You'd be quittin on tha team and hittin up jenna shae to mommy your thirsty ass within 2 games.

    But chit harden had a trip dub in game 5 so thats westbrook level right there.
