    T-Mac's way of self fellating since he was from the previous era and for a few years was drawing Kobe comparisons. By saying Kobe could score 100, effectively T-Mac is saying he could do the same too. I thought you'd have to go to porn sites to view this kinda content. Not national TV. I mean think of the children!

    T-Mac became an inefficient chucker.

    Dude bet against his own team in the playoffs.

    He had the most talent in his generation but could never over come being a mentally weak loser.

    Tmac and Paul Pierce get more and more annoying as they get older. At least Jalen can articulate his arguments even if they are flawed.

    Good chance that T-Mac would still lose in the first round in today’s NBA.

    Look, espn generally sucks. But I don’t see too much wrong with these particular takes. I mean it’s easier to score now, that’s a fact.

    What I do have a problem with is espn whining about eras in the middle of harden’s moment. You didn’t hear anything about that when Westbrook had his first triple double season. That is grade A espn bullshit.

    No I'm pretty sure it's still an opinion. You saying it's a fact is definitely your opinion lol

    Looks like t-mac is getting settled in with ESPN.

    Saying a lot of dumb **** and contradicting himself so he is officialy part of the group.

    None of those guys or Kobe would be able to average 37.5% from 3pt range on 13.7 attempts. It's beyond their reach, they were simply not as good as Harden from distance, and Harden continues to get better.

    More importantly, none of these guys ever went to the line 11.6 times a game, and none of them averaged 10 trips to the line over 7 seasons. They could have done that. They didn't. In fact, between the 3 of them (50+ seasons) they did it 4 times.

    So what the F was y'all doing then? Taking the softest shot in the league, the midrange. That's what they were busy doing. They need to open their eyes. Harden is the one player in the NBA who would be able to do what he's doing in another era, because he's a rough tough mf'er who can drain 3's from 25+ feet.

    Who is absorbing contact on drives better than Harden? He throws himself in there to get battered and finishes and makes his FT's.

    Yeah but could he make it out of the first round?

    T-Mac is one of the previous players I really dislike. All older players appear very insecure and apear to handle not being in the spotlight badly. But T-mac was a total failure as a player for such a talented player, It is amazing that he just could not get out of the first round.... So him complaining about harden really seems petty.

    People bash harden a lot about so called lack of play off succes. However in the last four years he made 2 conference finals and 1 second round. In these 4 years we lost to the warriors 3 times (a team which many see as the best team of all time). What does T-Mac has to show for himself..

    They need that spotlight on them thats whats wrong with both of the sometimes they are borderline pathetic. Kobe gave James harden the ultimate respect as to people trying to discredit James. Ever since now media at ESPN is crawfishing to avoid looking like haters

    Nowadays it is easier just to talk and not get into the action.

    And nah, Kobe would get 91 or 99 but not 100. Chuck all the shots while at it.

    Every time you simply compare objective facts with impossible conjectures when trying to make a point, you're basically aiming to deny a reality that's unpleasant to you. If you're the biggest pundit in the subject, you'll get away with that, but if you're just another self entitled analist, you're doing that cause there's no point to be made to deny the fact and you change the focus to the conjecture, which is only an opinion
