    Harden will definitely be more engaged on defense this coming season since he now has much more help on offense with Dwight's arrival. Regarding his post up game, this is the only thing that's missing in his offensive arsenal. He has the physical tools and signature old school game to be successful at the post.

    Andre Igoudala, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Thabo Sefolosha, Tony Allen, etc.. You've got yourselves a conundrum now!

    To me, a post game would truly take Harden from top-10 to top-5. It would put him near the Durant/Lebron category on offense. Defense we'll see, but I think people will find his defense a lot "better" because he can funnel everyone to Howard now.

    Someone responded that he worked in a college program and typical practice FT% was over 80% at the school. In practice you get to shoot like 50 FTs in a row so you get in a groove which is why you get typical high percentages as opposed to game situations where you might shoot a pair of FTs every 8 minutes.

    When D-Mo turns to his strong side (left) he shoots with his weak hand (right).

    The Dream Shake is shooting a fade-away with your strong hand when turning to your strong side, so D-Mo doesn't have that shot.

    I suppose he will have to drop some weight to do that move most effectively.

    I hope Dream's arrangement still lets him train players from other teams in the offseason.

    Other GM's should be terrified at the thought of their PF's spending their summer hanging out unsupervised with Dream and Parsons.

    Finally! From Dream: "James is stronger than he looks." Put to rest that silly thread about Harden being pudgy. He has a strong core. Lotta people are unfamiliar with that concept I guess.

    Dear Basketball Lords,

    I have been blessed with great, healthy genes. People still think I'm in my mid to late 20's when I am actually almost 15 years older.

    But Lords...that's all superficial.

    When I actually do grow up?...please...can you make me as fluid, as pretty moving and as graceful as Dream?

    Pretty please?

    Watching all the Dwight and harden videos just makes me imagine how much fun this team will be to watch Dwight has to be itching to play wit harden because he knows harden is not selfish and will look for him often they are going to click right away

    I actually found FT shooting easier toward the middle and end of games after I had warmed up and was into the game, even a bit tired (but of course not totally exhausted).

    I hope every single player under a rockets contract is practicing with Hakeem. Dmo should not be sitting and watching but up there and learning as well. He's another 7'0. Everyone on that team needs to develop a stronger sence of urgency. The time is now!

    Is it me or Hakeem is in the best shape of any 50yr old I know. I mean he is dancing on the court like a young buck. The most underrated move of the off season was making dream part of the staff.
