    Is he saying Harden does or does not want to play like that?

    Too bad it is someone with their video camera recording it instead of the actual clip. Would have loved to hear the whole thing.

    What’s the big deal? He said multiple times he’s playing like this because he has to with our injuries and Morey supplied “skip a year” so no help because the cap.

    Welp. This is how it starts. Either Mike will be gone or harden. Lol

    James Harden has grown to hate Daryl D'Antoni's offense. :eek:;)

    Hey, you want to get rid of iso stagnant ball-got-sticky pound-the-rock hero ball jack a bunch of dumbass threes and more "beautiful basketball" like Golden State, San Antonio & Budenholzer? You're gonna have the ball less AND you're gonna have to actually do something when you don't have the ball instead of just standing there (as others have pointed out).

    Ball movement
    Body movement

    so what Curry was up to? Discussing Harden when he knows Bud is mic'ed up? Is it to show support for Harden or create controversy?

    Not a strong endorsement for MDA or Morey

    MDA will get fired, and we will try to pick up a younger coach who is about ball movement.

    I would say, though... I don't think Morey can do anything go fix this roster anyway. Ultimately, I think Harden asks for a trade. I don't want to jinx this but whatever. **** has hit the fan.

    Can’t believe James Harden would get tired of Dantoni’s strategy of “Harden please save us I don’t have a backup strategy”. It’s almost like he wants a coach that is proactive instead of just sitting there.

    A truly fascinating development.

    Rockets were a league pass must-watch Harden’s 1st year here...Harden doesn’t move off-ball anymore tho, and it seems like he has to take at least 5 dribbles before he makes a decision

    oh well, he has to do what he has to do in order to win games and carry role players/scrubs to the playoffs

    Harden would probably rather average 25 and 12, but Rockets got him in a position now where he needs to drop close to 40 just for the team to win, and now we got people calling him a ballhog/chucker when he’s 1 of the most unselfish superstars in the NBA

    before this year, Harden’s career high in shot attempts for a regular season game was 33, and he’d shot at least 30 times in a game only 7 times...this year he’s shot at least 30 times 15 times with 7 games of at least 33 shot attempts

    So far this season:

    Rockets: 2
    Warriors: 0

    Translation: Shef Curry would like Harden to play a different offense, the one he currently plays beats GSW.

    That ISO ball stuff that would have beaten us in the playoffs -- you don't want to play that style, James.

    Let's maximize the viewing pleasure of the audience and Eric Gordon's fun meter instead.
