    I remember after that horrible season with mchale and JB that I was defending Harden left and right saying he was young only 25 still needed to learn needed better teammates.

    And that he was a top 3 player.

    Now I feel a little validated because I was right.

    Only thing I was wrong about is thinking Lebron and KD we’re better than him.

    He’s the best most impactful player in the game and the era and prob one of the 5 most singular impactful players in terms of on court success and winning.

    It’s pretty amazing that we get to watch this guy all the time and have been able to see his growth.

    I don’t want to toot my own horn but who else Lebron included has a winning record against GS in the Durant era? Harden that’s it.

    Who has more playoff victories in the west conference over the last 4 years other than GS? Harden.

    So if Harden is this terrible player in the playoffs what’s that make everyone else?

    Cool Lebron goes to the finals in the east every year. He also go molly whopped going 1-8 against GS once he got there the last two seasons. And one of them he still had KYrie.

    Harden could go to the finals every year with this team right now without cp3 and Gordon ever coming back think about that?

    He’d be the favorite out east with with his top 7 players being Capela rivers house tucker green ennis and nene?

    **** he’s got the rockets with a 13-3 record with those guys in the west the freaking West playing murderers road the last month.

    @TheCat keep letting everyone know on your podcast that we do in fact have the best offensive weapon ever and get some of those nba radio guys back on and show them my stats lol harden winning more against the Gs than anyone and has more playoffs series wins in the last 4 years and counting than anyone.

    Ppl don’t know what we’re witnessing.

    What I see watching those: All the wide-open 3-point opportunities that guys passed on so they could work harder to get a midrange shot up.

    Any skeptics/doubters left after tonight's game need to turn in their fan card and find another team to follow.

    Every day the HarGod is out there doing the impossible and not succumbing to injury is a blessing. Rockets fans should cherish the gift that they have while he's still here.

    I’m really at a loss for words this guy is a machine he’s not human.

    I’ve never seen anyone play basketball better than this guy right now.

    And the numbers are insane, but the key is we’re winning. 14-4 over the last 18 games playing a really tough schedule at that.

    This guy is playing the highest level of basketball that I can remember. I know Lebron had a pretty sick stretch over 10 games in Miami one year but Hardens doing this for damn near 25% of the season now and had us playing at a 60+ win pace with his 2nd 4rth and now 3rd best players all out.

    Still beating a .500 club by 20 with Austin rivers as the second best player.

    38-11-9 would be a career night for most players. And we’re talking about a subpar performance from HarGod. UNREAL

    Man, Harden is the best offensive player in the NBA now. There maybe better shooters but as far as being a scorer, there isn't any player better than him. Harden is a special player man.. We are definitely witnessing greatness and it upsets me so much that there are scrubs and band wagon fans who trash him. If you watch Rockets every game, you will definitely appreciate him more and more after each game. Screw the haters. Go Beard, Go Rockets.
