    ...Better. A lot better. (b/c I f*cked up the headline lol)
    Time to put these CP only fans officially to sleep.

    Harden playing this year without Russ in 4 games? 37.5 percent from field and 32.3 percent from 3.

    Harden playing this year with Russ in 31 games? 47 percent from field and 39 percent from 3.

    This current team is better than ANY Chris Paul team could ever be b/c of how much better Harden is with Russ on the court. It's not even close. CP never inspired even remotely this level of play from James. And it's gonna put itself on full beautiful display in the playoffs.

    This team will win the chip this year b/c of these two playing together and it'll be f*cking glorious.

    Did Harden ever have a shooting stretch with Chris Paul that he is having with Westbrook?

    KD and PG both had their best individual seasons with Russ and now Harden is having his best season individually...with Westbrook. Why doesn't CP have that same effect on teammates? Probably because they all hate him. LMAO.

    westbrook gives us a second ball handler/facilitator/ that can score without being just a spot up shooter.

    of course it makes him and the team better for him to be out there. if russ was playing tonight its likely james does not jack up twenty 3s. he can just use gravity to create wide open driving lanes for russ, which sucks in the defense and gets us better looks for our spot up shooters.

    now of course you have geniuses on clutchfans will suggest we trade westbrook for robert covington, but hey you can't fix stupid you just make them wear helmets so they don't hurt themselves.

    Ignorant that Chris Paul has only been to ONE WCF despite being on loaded teams since he left New Orleans? I'm not definitely not ignorant of that.

    Yeah, bro It's going great for you so far. Harden putting up historic numbers playing alongside Russ, while the team sits at the 2nd seed in a ridiculous Western Conference.

    Been a GREAT year for you so far.

    So we're eating crow, while serving premature crow?

    How can we be eating crow, if it would be premature at this point? Yeah, you're a f*cking idiot. LMAO.

    Westbrook's pace forces Harden to pick up his own. Harden performes better when he has that uphill momentum when he has that extra pep in his step. That usually happens more often when the pace picks up.

    So it's premature to say Harden is playing significantly better with Russ, but not premature to say CP is serving crow to the washed up crowd?

    LMAO.

    It's not about CP being washed up. Harden plays better with Russ then he HAS EVER played with CP. Period.

    This is definitely true. There are times when Harden will play slow and play below his actual level of athleticism.

    He doesn't do this with Russ, because Russ forces him to stay athletic and play with pace for the entirety of the game.

    That's interesting, especially considering we have by far the best guard rotation/depth in the NBA.

    This team isn’t better than the Rockets team that won 65 games. That was the best team in basketball and would have won the title if not for injury.

    How did James play in the playoffs that year? Not up to the level he's capable of.

    You'll see the level he's capable of this year with Russ.
