    Lol "the other shots" as in contested 3 from 3 ft behind the 3 pt line? No, you probably should start off with more simple shots.

    Anyways my entire point is Harden's inability to score at three levels makes him a predictable guard in closing moments of games.

    I dont care if this happens on a regular season game after he hurt his ankle a couple games ago. Nobody can give a 110% on every regular season game.
    The thing i dont like about him, is that we have seen this before, but in the playoffs.

    seriously . James didn’t have the best game ... and close losses always hurt . But , he played hard on D man . He got consistently hacked going to the rim and couldn’t buy a call .

    hardens greatest weakness is he has never found an answer as to what to do when the refs start ****ing him

    Did you see the Pacers running mid range in the Clutch? Is that how we lost? He had like 2-3 open threes which he missed. It was one step back three which he even attempted.

    He could have done mid range, but he didnt even look aggressive going to the rim. Ive never seen him get blocked that many times ever.

    Coach doesn't think he's hurt. Medical staff cleared him. James himself said he's not hurt.

    So why exactly does everyone feel the need to make up excuses for him, he himself doesn't use?

    Because he's played through injuries before and has never said anything.

    Thank you call it what it is, this is why James wants to be traded to a CONTENDER, how many drives Boogie tripped over his own feet. How many 30 footers for EG. This team is going nowhere if harden gives 100 or 10%

    Nah people just whine over and over. The team just isn’t that good and James is doing what Silas is asking him to do. People hate ISO ball, he’s not doing it. Now they ask What’s wrong with Hsrden?

    We used to laugh at Warriors fans for that schtick when Curry would have a bad game, turns out the Harden simps are just as bad.

    If no one could ever confirm any of these injuries, was he really injured then? I'm aware that he usually doesn't say "yes that ankle bothered me" but if the ankle did infact bother him, then just sit out or atleast say "yes, the ankle bothered me". Because if he just stays in and says he is fine, you're essentially just assuming he is injured, instead of knowing.

    What would you have him do. Break the offense and ISO over & over?

    Everyone here has watched Harden over the past 5-7 years. This is not how he plays no matter who the coach is.

    He is just going through the motion.

    It is time to say goodbye to Harden.

    The team isn’t that good. It’s ok, he’s just running the offense.

    I think he quit too.

    Harden drew 2 fouls tonight. He has become incredibly passive, lost all of his aggression. This is probably his new plan to force his way out after he saw how everybody reacted to his first couple of games "With Harden playing like this Houston should keep him" said a **** ton of people.

    If Harden has his normal game we win tonight's game pretty easily, a ton of our players played well tonight.

    Move him now before he tanks his value. Go get Simmons, or Brown or MPJ

    No, he's really not. The team is the 2nd most talented team since Harden has been here, it's just that Harden doesn't want to try anymore. He's just lazily dumping the ball off on nearly every possession hoping that the rest of the team will carry his ass.

    Much like he does in the playoffs all too often, Harden has quit on the team. The problem is who he is as a person.
