    Knowing him, he prolly woulda found a way to nut up in the Finals.

    I wanna see him win this year but I also kinda wanna see the city of Philly lose 4 title series in a row.

    My main thing is, I don't see any FA remotely as good as Harden on the market.

    Second most important consideration is that PG is our biggest area of need.

    If Kelly giving it a 70% chance, what is happening in Philly for harden to be willing to come back to Houston?

    Not offering the max. Terrible coach and most importantly harden is pretty much a houstonian given his mom and all his business interests are here. Plus he virtually lives here

    Was never that to begin with.

    I'm not buying the rumor though. Why on earth would he come back unless he is giving up his desire for a ring? Stone and Tilman continue to show how inept they both are. They are incapable of fielding a winning team. Plus why go back West? Path to a ring is much easier in the East in my opinion.

    Wouldn’t surprise me. Harden, with his aloof personality, is not exactly an easy guy to get along with.

    If Tilman really throws money at Harden, he would have to start tossing money at premium role players who can shoot as well.

    Last time Harden was here, the shooting was above average at best and average at worst.

    And then be ready to dispose of those role players quickly when Harden is quitting again.

    I'd be curious which 21 year olds develop under Harden's tutelage or is he simply taking touches away from them...

    I hear you. Wasnt a big fan of that style of play but i think Harden is more pg these days than one man offense.

    He alone would speed up the development of the young guys that would still be here.

    Either way itd be a better brand of basketball than whatever the hell they are out there doing these days.

    Harden would have won a ship with OKC at the age of 22 if not for the Decision and the Heatles.

    He's a different looking player and me being a Harden critic, I wouldn't mind having this version back to Houston. It's a combination of maturity and being held accountable.

    While I don't see him returning, it's not all rosy in Sixers land especially once Doc coaches them to another playoff flameout again.

    Doc will be the biggest reason harden leaves, he is a mchale level coach. Very stubborn
