    Watching them play I can't help but say that it just looks better better without Harden & Westbrook. Im not saying its necessarily more successful in the end. But it finally feels as if I can identify myself with this kind of basketball. Ball movement, transition, everyone touches the ball. No slow dribbling and stepback 3s. No 10 missed 3s in a row.
    I love James Harden and Russell Westbrook but they need to look at this style and finally adept...!

    :p

    Totally agree, if we cut them and someone picks them up will the full salary count against the cap? Asking for a friend.

    If a team shoots 41 FTs, I think that is a landslide win with, or without the 3 Amigos. Inspiring game!!!

    Har_en, Westbrick, and Crapella are clearly holding us back. Just trade them all for picks and fire Murray while we’re at it.

    100% winning percentage.

    Can’t argue with those numbers.

    It was Harden holding back Gordon from back to back to back MVP's in the last 3 seasons.

    I wonder what we can get for a package of Harden + Westbrook + Capella?

    We're better with Harden and Russ, but it was at least a better brand of basketball to watch

    Not much after tonight’s regular season win in Utah. They’ve been exposed. I’d take cash considerations at this point. Tilly needs a new pair of shoes.

    The movement of the ball was quite a good change of scenery.

    Gordan is really a starter in this league!

    Seriously, this team is no better without Harden; but I hope that tonight Harden has understood how to play as a team, with heart and pride!
