    Hard to argue really. What a sad, sad, sad season for all involved. At least we provided a piñata to the sports media for a year.

    Feel sorry for a Harden, youre doing all you can and your coach botches your chances to even have a chance to win by playing Brewer,Terry, and Howard beside you instead on Beasly and Kj.

    Bickerstaff as coach is the worst decision Morey ever made. Yes even worse than the royce white pick.

    "They look like hostages".


    Yeah, that's a pretty good way of putting it!

    Honestly, you're out for blood with him. I'm sorry Harden stole your girl in 5th grade but get over it. The guy's usage statistics are off the charts, and TBH he plays the same amount of defense as Steph does. We need another player who can create when Harden is off the court, and we need Harden to play fewer than 40 mins per game. That's not on James, that's on coaches and his support staff.

    This whole series feels like a punishment for the bad season. Simply having the season end wasn't good enough. Now we are being put out there to be publicly humiliated on a national stage.

    What an unbearably bad year. Not even the biggest pessimist on the planet could have seen this catastrophe coming. Been watching the Rockets since 92, the Astros since 94, and the Texans from the jump. I've seen much worse teams than this one, but in all those years this is the first time I've actually been ashamed of my fandom.

    Tbh I'm glad we're being embarrassed nationally. Lets the whole world see just how bad it really is. I'm hoping for a sweep and two more humiliations, add as much salt to the wound, and pray for complete overhaul.

    He plays **** D and breaks the all time record in turnover and you state he is doing all he can and resort to grade school personal attacks. If Harden stole my girlfriend in the 5th grade, then you are currently fondling his balls.

    People still believe that hardens defense is as good as curry's still. Oh please. Quit being stuck in the past. Curry has become at the very least average, while harden is still suck in the ground night in and night out. Curry's effort alone put him above harden defensively. That's extremely easy to see. You can even see curry giving harden problems in game 1 and that's hilarious bc harden should be able to score on him if he's truly that great of a player

    The fact he broke the turnover record stems from usage, but hey, understanding that might be above your head. Let me try talking slower and simpler to you. The more you play, the more you do. This is why teams that go into overtime can score more points. Wait, do you understand what overtime is? You see if Harden scores 5 points and has 1 turnover for every 5 minutes he plays, if he plays 20 minutes he will have 20 points and 4 turnovers. I know you failed algebra because Harden was busy with your girl during that class, but you should really go back and learn those basics...
