As much as we wanted for Francis, Yao and T-Mac to fulfill our superstar dreams, they never, as good as they were, exhibited the qualities of Harden.

He might actually live up to the Dream.

I knew exactly the thread on our forums he was referring to. A user had reacted prematurely to T-Willís rough first half against the Spurs only to get clowned by the community for the rest of the game as Williams hit 7 of his last 9 shots in the second half.

T-Mac has had some otherworldly seasons and Jordan is Jordan. That being said, I'm a bigger fan of Harden's game - instead of dominating the ball and jacking up a lot of contested shots, he's trusting a lot in his teammates. He's deferred play-making responsibilities to Lin, he tries to find Greg Smith for the slam, he'll look to get others involved, and he picks and chooses when he wants to assert himself.

Harden's offensive game reminds me of prime Manu Ginobili on steroids, besides the suicidal hustle.

Proud of the Rockets, that was a steal. We caught a team that also struggled with their shots. Harden came through when it count. Rockets just need to play their style and they can beat any team any time any day. I don't see many teams that can defense this style of basketball.

Absolutely hilarious how Barea tried to show up Lin at the end, only to dribble it right into Delfino and turning it over.

I'm not going to answer all of the replies, so I'll just pick yours, because I find your username amusing.

Yes, Harden looks like the real deal, something the Rockets have not had since the Dream days. Not saying he IS the real deal, but he certainly does seem to have the qualities. Of course, that's a subjective evaluation based on empirical stats along with demeanor, attitude, level of focus, time of game, decision making, etc. You, as well as others, obviously disagree.

Now, to be clear, I don't think Harden is at the same level of talent as Olajuwon. I compare his talent more to someone like Wade, who just so happens to have that "it" that I mention. You could see Wade was a championship level star in his rookie season and you could *somewhat* see Harden having that same quality in OKC, but now it seems circumstances didn't allow him free rein. If that is not the case, then too bad for the Rockets and too bad for my talent evaluation skills.

And yes, it's exciting as a Rockets fan, even if that is tempered by the reality of this being such a young team. I've seen a lot of players come and go for the Rockets, and I just can't remember the last one that looked this dominant at such a young and inexperienced age. T-Mac was close, but was mentally weak, Francis never had the discipline and Yao had plenty of holes in his game that were commonly exposed in critical situations.

Call me blind, or high, or a fr34k, but that's the way that I see it.

[edit] can an admin spoiler or resize the above image.[/edit]

Just watched a second time. Notice play one is a Popovich classic.

Asik does a pin down on Rubio as Harden goes to three point land.

Duncan does that for Ginobody all the time.

Bonafide superstar. It's early yet for him as a starter, but I have no doubt of his abilities. What a baller.

James Harden watched The Grey last night and was inspired by Liam Neeson's character.
