    Lol. If only...

    The LOF's will never stop. This wasn't the first time Harden deferred to Lin while he was playing well. Did it last season as well.

    Sensible.
    And they also seem to use more off ball screens for simple set plays.

    It is in the definition.

    But really, Harden has been playing pretty unselfishly for quite a while. I recall Dwayne Wade saying that the test Harden would face would be dealing with the pressures of being "the man" on his team. I can't find the direct quite, but Wade discussed how, because of the contract and being featured, Harden would have to shoulder the blame night in and night out.

    It is a lot to be expected to be the closer, bail the team out of tough situations, and make your teammates better. So far, I think Harden has handled it well. At least publicly.

    That is a fair assessment and something I've been guilty of. To Harden's credit he has shown times of trying to be more inclusive and less ISO. last night was a perfect example. And there is no question when we need him to step up we need him to step up. Hat's off to Harden for dealing with the pressures of being the man on the team.

    Not real LOFs. Just trolls pretending to be LOFs. Shame so many people are falling for it.

    Harden is slowly getting over his need to "prove" to OKC that he is so awesome. And that takes a level of maturity. That kind of slight is not easy to get over for anybody.

    well for Lin to ever get near a triple double, harden had to have been playing fairly unselfishly throughout the entire game. So by the time Lin had 9 assists, the whole game up until that point you can imagine Harden was being unselfish at least compared to other games.

    also, those fans are stupid if they really care about 1 more assists. You should never inflate your stats, but concentrate on the game itself. Forget ALL stats in terms of trying to get yours. Just play the game naturally. Unless you REALLY LOVE 10 points, 10 boards, 10 assists WAY MORE than 10 points, 9 boards, 17 assists, 4 steals, 4 blocks, 0 turnovers.

    Maybe Mchale should let Harden call the plays in crunch time instead of himself.

    Then I hope he can keep it on. This team is more contender when Harden plays unselfishly.

    Like Parsons said Team plays more balanced without Harden and there's a reason why he said that. If this team can put Harden(best scorer) and Lin(best passer) works together, this back-court will be Unbeatable!:cool:

    It seems that everyone takes Lin complementary words about Harden seriously. Go.back to view the game one more time.

    I don't think Parsons actually said what you think he said. There is a video floating around in another thread that will surprise you.
