    This is a great plan .

    But it's idiotic to leave harden out of this .

    His pride will have to take a hit , he's not above the team .

    He can talk all he wants to about rhythm , but even if he took two whole weeks off he'd have time to work himself back into the flow

    Morey did an amazing job of building a complete roster after the disaster we had at the beginning of the season.

    100% agree with DD. This team is actually deeper than last year.

    Our next 2 games are against Hawks and Grizzlies. Definitely want to win both games, but also rest James. I think we really should rest James at least one of them.

    Harden is the one that needs the rest the most, even if he was healthy.

    He is actually injured.

    Yet he plays every game and gets plenty of minutes while the scrubs rest.

    lol...MDA team management.

    Tonight was the perfect game to rest Harden.

    Is it just Harden being stubborn or something else.. I don't want this version of Harden in the playoffs, I want January Harden

    Regular season depth is not the same as regular season depth.

    First, the rotation gets shortened in the playoffs.

    Second, plenty of players that are comfortable in their roles in the regular season get very unconformable in playoffs, and start choking.

    That's it . Harden has to literally tell MDA that he's a bit sore .

    MDA can see the heating pad on his neck , the tape on his shoulders , the bricking of his jump shot ...... but those clues mean nothing.

    Unless James explicitly tells him , how is MDA supposed to know he's banged up ?

    Funny thing is, he's probably injured AND needs rest regardless of injury.
