    If my memory serves me right, they were 1-5 in playoff series in the 10 years prior to Harden. They are 3-5 with Harden. AMAZING!!

    No he didn't. When they were on the court together, Gordon's primary objective was to get open and wait for a pass from Harden. Btw, "willingness to share" means more than just passing the ball and then standing around. Do you ever watch Gordon when he doesn't have the ball? He's always moving to create a line of sight between himself and the ball-handler.

    Harden's OKC experience is irrelevant. It was too long ago, and he's now a much different player with a much different mentality.

    That is you're opinion but from what I saw he more then shared the ball with Eric.

    So if Harden signs the Designated Player Extension this summer, how much does he make and how many more years is he signed for?

    Your stupidity has gotten annoying. How about a $20 tipjar wager? Find 10 quotes of mine where you think I'm being overly complimentary about Lin.

    I think that is kind of the thing . . . . JHarden may need that second person to break the funk
    After that I recall he played well in Game 7
    If we had survived the Game 6 . . . I doubt he would have repeated it in game 7

    Congrats JHarden!

    Harden is more than willing to share the ball.

    Unfortunately, he is not more than willing to move off the ball. To his credit I saw more back door cuts this post-season than I think I've seen overall off-ball movement from him the past 2 years combined.

    The question isn't will Harden share the ball. I think he will. He was more than willing to let Lou take over ball handling at times. The question is what does Harden do on the court when someone else is using that ball??

    Anyone remember Harden's first, or second, game as a Rocket? That dude was a bundle of energy moving all around the court.

    Well, like I said, "willingness to share" means more than passing the ball and then standing around.

    He played solid game 7. Harden solid. 7-20 from the field, but 15-18 from the line. 31 points, 7 boards, 8 assists, though 7 turnovers.

    He also kicked ass games 1,2 vs. GSW. But then he played horrible game 3 at home, then great again game 4 (like his best playoff game ever great), to follow it up with arguably his worst playoff game ever in game 5 elimination loss. either that game, or game 6 against the Spurs this year.

    He is what he is. he has some duds in the playoffs surrounded by great games.

    That's because that someone you speak of miss 41 games that season (along with other key guys) and played in the playoffs on a torn meniscus and MCL...

    No. He is not. He is a quitter. Would never be in my top 5. Intestinal fortitude has to count when it comes to competition. He quit on his team. No way is he a top 5 guy. No effin way.

    This further proves we should trade Harden while his value is at an all time high.

    You realize 100 media voters agreed on only 1 thing this year: James Harden was first team all NBA. They didn't all agree on Lebron. They didn't all agree on Durant. They didn't all agree on Curry. They didn't all agree on Kawhi. They only agreed on Harden.


    Waiting on the Woj Bomb: "Tomstro - Harden not in my top 5"

    I agree. I really think Harden can be the best player on a championship team. But he needs a second star, especially in the Superteam era.

    Based on what I've read so far, D'angelo Russel/Larry Nance/Deng
