    One of the longer lasting friendships in the league (with some issues)

    Strange to see those pics of those former Allstars (1 time allstar Jameer)
    Mighty Mouse and Superman

    went together to the Finals

    Are they going to play on one team again and relive the glory days?
    Nobody knows

    Do you have some type of insider info?

    Because Howard aired out some grievances about that Orlando Magic team that Nelson did not take too kindly to.

    They were definitely friendly last night before the game. Dwight spent a good 15 minutes chatting it up with Jameer. It looks like there is no love lost there.

    I wish the same could be said about James and Dwight.

    I thought the same, but it seems to fluctuate from game to game, especially if we're losing.

    James is learning how to be a leader, but he has his moments when he snaps on everyone. I think it's just going to take him some time to learn how to communicate appropriately.

    Jordan, Kobe, and LeBron went through the same thing. Remember when LeBron snapped on Chalmers? It was a great moment, because a few minutes later, he apologized and said, "My bad..." I felt like that was when he really became an effective leader.

    good to know i wasnt the only one who had noticed that. it was one of the positive changes lately in my mind. just hope its not too little too late.

    you know,,, sometimes i wonder if i've been too hard on harden. was just thinking what i was doing and how it all was when i was at the age of mid-20's...

    MJ, Kobe, and LeBron played defense though. Harden has a loooooong way to go besides communication.

    Harden also needs to throw better alleys to Dwight. Josh wrote the blueprint in the playoffs vs Dallas. He likes direct passes near the rim, not floaters. Floaters throw off timing and makes the play more difficult both making the basket and potential injury to Dwight due to too much stretching.

    Agreed. Was just giving an example of the continuum of communication. It takes awhile to get down, even for the great ones.

    It seems like every time Dwight gets a dunk its a pass from somebody other than Harden. Last night I saw a couple of passes from Harden to Howard and I thought it was odd. I don't think your delusional.

    Harden/Howard are fine.

    We lack discipline & a strategy. JB is just the more impulsive McHale.

    James will never be a leader if he doesn't find a way to give any sort of effort defensively. Lead by f'ing example.
