    Damn Giannis really crapped the bed last year when his team lost 4-1 in the bubble then right. Or when Kawhi blew a 3-1 lead right. Give me a break. The Nets are gonna win next year and you people are gonna have to get over being butt hurt.

    The good ol "Next year" lol.... And next year it will be " Next year" again... and again.... The number #1 phrase for insane Harden fans that still believe he can for once take over in an important playoff game...

    Yes those guys also fell short before but they have evidence that they can win that ring. You just need to do it once. Harden had his chance with relatively weak competition in a couple of seasons and didn't take advantage. That is going to stick with him when people discuss his legacy.

    When? When did he have a chance to win a ring with as weak as competition as Giannis had or as good of a team as Kawhi or in fact Giannis again? Tell me, when?

    When Raptors won a ring werent the Rox facing a decimated GSW team? No Boogie and Klay iirc. KD was like a game away from getting injured himself if they extended that to game 7 he woulda be gone as well.

    If Harden was loyal and stayed like Giannis maybe he'd be the one facing the Bucks instead of Giannis given how weak the comp is this year.

    He can keep his regular season accolades.
    What I remember most about Harden are his disappearing acts when crunch time comes. You could actually see him shrinking when he should be taking over.

    He fell short vs the Blazers and the Kawhiless Spurs.

    Doesn't help that he has some historically bad individual elimination games like the Spurs game.

    Ya. I've said this plenty of times and many posters become outraged and pretend I'm making it up. He literally just stood around plenty of times in large stretches of the 4th quarter. The excuse was "he's creating a double team and causing 4 on 5".

    I don't care. I want my historic scorer taking the shots at that time. So move your feet and run through some screens, create some separation and provide a damn lane for your teammate to inbound the ball to you.

    No. They still had Klay and Boogie was hurt for pretty much their whole run. Raptors faced a Warriors team without KD and without Klay and Looney at times. Lmao yea, you know for certain he was gonna get injured, cmon be serious.

    Hey if the owner had just gone into the tax in 2018-2019, wed be champions. We werent winning a chip with or without Harden on this team.

    You dont know for certain that KD would get injured but you know for sure Rox would be champs if the owner spent past the lux tax lol. Some conditional omniscience you have there.

    Let's agree both Harden, Rox mgt and Rox ownership failed in the Rox era. They all have a hand in the Harden era failure. It's not like Harden had zero culpability he the one who pushed Cp3 away for his buddy WB

    Nets got injured and the Suns weren't good enough, things happen. I thought the Suns would be better and it was a close series. This doesnt do anything for you lmao.
