    absurd that adding this isn't even the most impressive thing he did this off-season.

    Does Ryno hates Harden? The guy only hit assisted 3’s from CP3.

    I honestly believe the locker room chemestry is now broke.

    Money, just trade all players and tank.

    Cp3s passes especially cross court passes to Ryno have been more crisper. this is a big reason for both Ryno and Ariza's higher percentage shooting.. Heck even harden is shooting 43% since CP3 has been injected in the line up..

    I know Anderson said the trade rumors didn't effect him this off-season but I think it lit a fire up his sweet 3 point stroking shooting behind.

    I watched this 50 times - there is no defense for something as quick and crisp as this.

    Cp3 is definitely the better passer in terms of quality of passes, literally tries to hit a bullseye it's incredible.

    not a knock on Harden at all, CP3 has been the best passing PG in this league for most of his career. He actually tries to hit certain spots of the shooter where as most people just passes it to the general direction

    cp3 and harden prolly have a bet every game: who has the most between-the-legs (opponent's or teammate's) assists

    I like the play, but the Spurs had a defense for that. They sent both wing defenders to the rim every time and dared Houston to hit corner threes. The angle of the pass has changed because it was always coming from the top of the key, but now I'm just ruining my argument. Really and truly, the guy hedging the pick could have put in a little more effort on guarding Capela. It looks like he quit.

    I think he just got caught ball watching and knew he was beat pretty much immediately. Probably thought Capela was going to rescreen for James and just got caught out of position - you can see him leaning towards James a split second before Capela dove to the rim and James read it perfectly. Your right - it was a poor effort to recover but when James and Chris are reading the defense that fast - it would be hard on the best of defenders unless there was no pick hedging. You are right about the Spurs defending that by daring us to beat them on the wings - don't think they could get away with that this year though

    Both Harden and Paul are incredible passers, with Anderson benefitting greatly.

    Harden's passing is essential for elevating Anderson's ceiling through the roof on the road. Meanwhile, Paul's passes actually adjust the lighting in Toyota Center for Anderson.
