    It was a magical run. Got to the WCF twice and was only one win away from the finals.

    We experienced almost a decade of amazing scoring by the best scorer since Wilt. What a great ride and I’m so happy to have had the chance to watch this team.

    MCW is better than half of the Rockets roster.

    Don’t worry. There is a lot of time left

    we haven’t been hitting any 3s

    can get back in game very quick once a few of those start dropping

    Not sure if the Harden era is "done", but yea, maybe this is a new phase. He hasn't been elite for a while, so maybe he's starting to regress, I don't know. Hope not, but elite players don't have extended slumps like this.

    Harden isn't the only issue that's wrong currently with this organization but him, Morey ball, etc, has run it's course. Also, it's so hard rooting for and defending a player who consistently opens up a can of quit when the team needs him most or during adversity.

    Thank you for everything, James

    Good luck on the Knicks next year

    Harden for five first round picks

    He peaked a couple seasons ago. We’ve seen his best. It wasn’t good enough then. He’s nowhere near good enough now and tomorrow forget about it.

    Knicks are desperate. They want a star

    Harden is only star Dolan will get

    No, it's the end of the MDA era, thank heavens! How a coach can be praised for limiting his superstar and beating the mid-range out of him is still beyond me. Morey deserves a lot of criticism for this as well.

    These guys are funny. They never quit.

    Watch what happens when he starts carrying us again. They'll go back into hiding.... or at least till he has one bad game, then the threads will be out again.

    We probably have the most pathetic fans. Look at how dead our stadium is most of the time. But the casuals online are even worse.

    harden is the problem, but he's also not the problem. smallball and d'antoni are the problem behind the problem. harden's legs are gone. way too much usage, and now on top of that he has to constantly battle in the post against bigs. hard to make 3's right after wrestling guys 50lbs heavier and 6in taller than you. his 3ball has gone and his lift on drives has gone, and therefore his confidence has gone. smallball is wearing the entire team out. imo we need to bring hartenstein back and see if he can give us some minutes. i doubt this is going to happen though b/c it would mean d'antoni/morey admitting failure in the face of a lot of media people who will clown them for weeks. in any case,hopefully we pick up some competent bigs in the offseason.
