If Lin and Harden can't play together and one has to go who is it?

I think I am happy with lin averaging 14-6, but there are many on this board who would disagree.

Based on the EWA and VA and what we gave up for him I would say it has to be harden. Based on EWA and VA he is playing like a top 10 player. Over his past 10 games his true shooting % is 60% which is pretty good.

i think he will average more assists. dropping dimes isn't a bad think, it's that nba 12k mentality.
No one has to go.

You should have added a proper title to the poll.

The poll and thread title implies which player you would choose, but your post says which player would be traded if they can't coexist.

Well, there's really no reason they can't coexist. Give it time, let chemistry build, and watch the young guns blossom into something special.

Or you could... you know... start knee-jerk threads after each and every game.

I think they can work well together. But if you had to move somebody you would definitely move Lin. This seems pretty obvious. There is still very much so a market out there for Lin Lakers & Mavericks would definitely take him. Bring in a Courtney Lee type player who can spot up & shoot 3's & defend to play next to Harden. But before anybody is moved the Rockets need to find out conclusively that Lin cannot play alongside him.

The answer to this question only lies in the form of two perspectives-

"who do you(fans of certain players) think is the better player?"

and

"who do the Rockets front office/coaches think is the better player?"

the answer to the second question is pretty obvious isn't it, so why even bring up the first question unless you just want to stir up a debate that's being presented in almost every other Rockets basketball thread out there???

What is the question?

Feel free to push for me to be banned, but, but I'd 100% rather Lin go instead of Harden.

No ****. I chose Harden thinking the question was "Who would you want on our team if I had to chose between the two?" What a ****ty thread/question.
