    a lot of stuff was abandoned that made Harden unstoppable. when was the last time we saw Harden do that easy turn around step back in the lane? 7 years?

    Proof these guys don't watch the Rockets. That's just not who Harden is. We wanted that for ages.

    I'll never forget that series and how Manu at like 80 years old just stole Harden's heart that series.

    If people ever want to know what winning plays look like and what losing plays look like, Manu v Harden that series was a great example. At least then Harden was like under 25 IIRC or he was generally still not even prime Harden so I thought he would have learned what being desperate to win looks like...

    Those highlights are from like, 2010 and before, though.

    If you think Harden looks washed now, Harden off-ball is going to be an absolute clown show. Plus, Maxey and/or the other ballhandler is going to have to make the good pass. I just don't see off-ball Harden being a thing.

    “Westbrook just needs to do this, this and this and adjust his game…”
    “Carmelo just needs to do this, this and this and adjust his game…”
    “Harden just needs to do this, this and this and adjust his game…”

    LOL Good luck.

    I want Embiid so very badly to say "I know what we need to do." And then in 48 hours, a missing persons case is opened for James Edward Harden Jr.
