    LOL - we kicked his ace when he led better teams (Lob City Clips) and we'll kick his ace again.

    This is a far different team than the ones he played against earlier this season.

    The OKC fear is ridiculous.

    Skillball is going to revolutionize the game while we win a championship.

    Book it.

    Unless he plays like 2019, in which case he will be scared to shoot wide open threes and be unable to make a play with Andrew Bogut defending him.

    Do you guys think he'll shake harden's hand after they lose the series?

    He's class. He will.

    I love CP3 and he's sure to have a few big games but we know he's also sure to have a few quiet ones too. I think between Harden and Russ either one of them will be hot one night, they are great players still in their primes so either one of them having two bad games in a row? Very unlikely.

    Nothing against Chris Paul. I would hope he would bring his "A" game against us in the playoffs and I would hope we bring our "A" game and beat him.

    It would be fitting if he plays well in a tight series and then dramatically pull both hamstrings in typical CP3 fashion. He would then emotionally cheer on ( or "Lead" ) OKC from the sideline. The Rockets win 4-2 of course.

    Not gonna lie it feels like a major fail only to be 1 game ahead of OKC after sending out control of 6 1st rd picks and Clint Capela to "win now".

    6 first round picks to be legit contenders for the 3 seasons and not wasting Harden's prime.

    Yes, that's the sales pitch.

    The reality, I fear may not reflect this sales pitch in any way.

    do you believe he and harden ended on bad terms? Would they have a conversation at a dinner party?

    We have been contenders for the last 3 seasons and we are this year. That is not up for debate.
