We will have James Harden's best years as a pro unlike the decling Charles Barkley, Tracy Mcgrady, and fall of Yao Ming.

I find more to like about this guy every day. He's a breath of fresh air as opposed to the star mentality that gets exuded by other star (or incredibly talented but self-entitled) players who get caught up in the limelight and special treatment.

Hope his game improves soon. He has been ice cold these last few games. That weak euro step has got to go also

Dude just turned 23 years old in August....I still can't believe that.

He's truly going to be dominant in years to come. His game is not perfect right now, but that's a good thing. He's one of the league's best players (clearly), and he still has so much more that he can improve on (FG%, turnovers, etc.).

So happy to have him. I was vehemently against going after Dwight because of his injury history, his unwillingness to play in Houston, and his unwillingness to sign an extension with the Rockets. Now we have a true star player, who's younger, who really likes what we have here. That's really just the perfect scenario.

And really though....is Asik playing THAT much worse than Dwight? Absolutely not. He's filling the center void beautifully.

Please....

His euro step is lethal. Does it work every time? No, but that move has gotten him to the line countless times this season. Saying it "has got to go" is just short sighted because of the Thunder game.

Dude is 23 years old....he's going to improve so much more.

I thought he shot pretty well in the Knicks & Raptors games.

maybe you dont have CSN like it do but that weak move is why he is almost toping the team in turnovers. Its predictable and it seems that he doesnt have any other ways of getting to the rim on a fast break. Players have been stripping the ball away from him at a high rate also. Thats part of the reason why he has been struggling. Its either a 3pointer or euro layup , those shots are 90% of his game. Short sighted my ass lol. these turnovers have been happeneing all season

Counting down.. 2 years until he's the best SG in the game. Maybe less.

You don't remember. 17 points from the field, 16 points from the FT line.

And in reference to your previous post, his eurostep is one of the best in the league. It's gotten him easy looks at the basket (he's been missing more than he should) and is a big reason why he's one of the league leaders in FTs attempted.

I do have CSN. I watch every game.

And while I agree with you that he uses the euro step to a fault at times, to say it needs to go is incredibly misguided. It's his best move, and it has lead to much success for him.

He needs another move obviously, and he will get it. But to say he needs to get rid of his go to move is just not wise. He definitely needs to tone it down and maybe settle for some short jumpers or floaters, but it's not like his euro step is failing epically every time.

Dude is 23...he'll get better, get more moves, cut down turnovers, etc.
