    He has a chance to pass up Hakeem if he can get past the Warriors and get a ring.

    Hakeem was legendary, but Harden has a chance. He has also embraced Houston like nobody before him.

    We are very fortunate to have him.

    This fanbase abandoned the hell out of him after his final game against the Spurs last postseason.
    We definitely are fortunate to have him.

    Not sure if this is an interpretation of the photo or if Harden told him this. Harden's drive should not be questioned, he's not T-Mac. This season will be great and it's good to hear he's tweaked his diet and trying to get more healthy.

    After his 2nd championship we can start the comparisons to Hakeem. Until then, forget it. Just getting to the Finals one time would be very good.

    Whatever happens, it's great for the Rockets to be relevant and for fans to have hope.

    don't doubt his offensive prowess. but much needs to be done before he can even be mentioned near hakeem after that spurs series. he has mount everest to climb.

    Getting past the Warriors would be a better series win than any Hakeem experienced in my opinion. The amount of rings after getting one won't determine who was a better Rocket.

    If you are old enough to have fully experienced Hakeem's entire career with the Rockets, just wow.

    If not, you have no clue.

    Stop this crap.

    Hakeem was and will always be the best ever Houston athlete. Harden may end up 2nd but a distant 2nd

    as for JJ fatt, he is not even top 100

    I can't lie, my heart is still broken after game 5 and 6. Still, to this day, I can't believe what I saw. I like James Harden, I really do. I'm glad he will be a Rocket for a long time. When I see a clip or his off season happenings, I still light up....

    I just don't trust him right now... 0% confidence in playoff James Harden.

    Clutchfans meltdown mode isn't pretty.

    If you're not a saint off the court, the pitchforks and torches come out and a cleansing is nigh.

    Nothings forgiven. They'll just wait for the next game a player can't put up PlayStation numbers for a crucial game

    JJ may go down as the goat defensive player. Stop your nonsense.

    27. So it puts me remembering the later of his career.

    Hakeem never beat a team like the Warriors.

    I think if Harden can accomplish it he has a "chance" to be considered the best Rocket of all time. Nothing far fetched there.
