    While we still can. He's broken mentally. Ever since he choked against The Heat in the Finals when he was younger he's scarred for life. Better trade him now before he further damages his playoff reputation. I cringe at the thought of another Harden team led playoff failure. But he'll probably force his way out before then and lower his value.

    He choked against the Blazers and got shut down by Wesley ****ing Matthews. Next year he got bailed out against the Mavs cause he had a better team and Mavs imploded. Next round against the Clips he was absolute trash. Pure garbage. Got bailed out by a bunch of guys no longer on this team or in this league for that matter. Blew a huge opportunity in the final seconds of early game against GSW. 2016 was a wasted year and a lost cause all around.

    This year he had everything. Talented teammates that had his back, perfect system that catered to his game, a coach that he wanted and the coach trusted him. Coach gave him freedom to make the game fun and play to his strengths and then some. Then he blows a golden oppourtunity in game 5 by choking in the 4th quarter after actually playing a really good game until then. With No Kawahi in the 4th he instead gets schooled by the 2nd oldest player in the league who turns 40 in a couple months. Game 6 at home in an elimination game he had a chance to show what he's made of and shake his playoff deamons with no Kawahi again and instead he gets schooled by a dude who barely made it to the league.

    Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. I was skeptical going into this years playoffs even against the Thunder and he got bailed out again with better system, coach and teammates and he didn't particularly dominate any game or long stretch the whole series. Tonight was the final straw. I'm not falling for this **** no more.

    But don't worry there will always be Harden Fanboys that will flame me and defend him till no end because of his crazy regular season numbers and talk about how great he is... when it really doesn't matter. When it matters most... The playoffs his Turnovers increase. Fact. His FG% drops significantly. Fact. Gets shut down and schooled by Matthews, Rivers, Simmons, Ginobody

    Next year it's quit on the team in the regular season or flame out again in playoffs. Time to eject. It's been real.

    What would u trade Harden for? And please, try to be realistic, so no dumb sh*t like Harden for Lebron, Kawhi, KD, or Curry.

    so trade him for a lottery ticket, and then we can hope that the player that is taken with that pick can 1 day be even 75% as good as Harden is right now

    then we can end up as a lottery team and maybe get back to being a 50+ win team 5 or more years from now

    sounds great

    harden is our guy! we are all emotional but I am sick of all these dumb threads coming up. YES HE LET US ALL DOWN BUT GODAMMIT HE IS MY FAVORITE PLAYER.

    He is a top 5 player in the nba. it's not time to give up on him yet. he **** the bed and he's not there yet but he is our best hope at future success. DON'T GIVE UP ON HIM. He just had the greatest offensive season in nba history...

    he will mature. I am gonna necro bump some of these threads if we have playoff success in the future with harden

    D'angelo Russel or Julius Randel + Lakers likely 3rd pick.

    CJ McCollum or Damian Lillard + Portlands two 1st round picks this year and a future 1st.

    Ben Simmons and 76ers 1st round pick prob number 4

    Buddy Hield + WCS or Scal + Kings 2 top picks this year projected 8 and 10.

    So many interesting options. Harden turns 28 before the start of next season. He's peaked. I can't see him getting better. Honestly, I really can't. To have two MVP worthy seasons and not win and flame out in the playoffs that type of stuff takes a toll mentally. I almost feel bad for him but he ain't leading us anywhere.

    As a diehard Harden fan who supported him since he became a Rocket (bought a few pairs of his signature shoes, bought some Harden candy, etc) , I think the Lakers makes the most sense. They have 3/4 decent assets and two large (bad) contracts to make it work (Deng / Mozgov). They can easily get George and Harden and build around them and still potentially keep Randle. Harden needs an alpha, he needs someone like George who will call him out and get in his ear if he shows up like he did today. Van Gundy was right, this team is a bunch of nice guys and no one would dare call James out on anything.

    Thank you. Finally someone who sees what Harden was in the Finals against the Heat.

    I do not think Morey is that good to find superstars that actually fit Harden's bill.

    Do you like what you're feeling tonight?

    How about last year?

    Or the year before?

    Or the year before last year?

    Well they're all Harden led playoff exits. But don't worry there will be more to come since you're so fond of them if he stays.

    Do you like 30 win seasons? Or do u like barely missing the playoffs like we were doing before Harden came here? Don't worry, we would get plenty of those.

    What!? Don't trade Harden!!! He is still a top 5 player in the league! We would be a f****** lottery team without harden and totally irrelevant. We just need to sign another star!!!!

    Best thing about this game is that James Harden has been officially exposed as a quitter, choker and loser. No more excuses. He needs to go or be second fiddle to another star with more heart and bball IQ.

    all Russell has shown so far is that he's an inefficient scoring guard with below average athleticism and sh*tty defense, Randle will be lucky to be more than an above average player, and then a lottery ticket with the 3rd pick...smh

    both CJ and Dame are worse than Harden, and Portland's non lotto picks...lovely trade

    Ben Simmons who has yet to play a game and another lottery ticket...sounds great

    Buddy Hield who will be lucky to be more than an average starter or a JJ Reddick, WCS who has had only a few really good games in his career and has been criticized for his low BBIQ and 2 more lottery tickets...amazing

    Morey will be found dead within the hour he executes that trade.

    Trading Harden would be retarded.
