    "Those Shaqless Kobe's team that won the rings were not that great. The NBA was pretty weak those days. Hell, A Yao Ming-less Rockets team led by Aaron Brooks and Artest took them tot he limit."

    I see it now "less". I missed that. Still they were a damn good team. With Ming they lose though.

    I miss read I admit it my bad didnt see the less part. They were still a great team and dont take for granted the fact that Artest was a beast then.

    Those Rockets and Lakers teams would get destroyed by the Warriors or Rockets team of the past two years.

    Imagine Harden with prime Bynum Gasol and Odom. Gasol was ridiculous back then.

    He said Yao-Ming less. He is right tho the league was weak, Celts were on the decline as well.

    Taking Kyrie Irving as an example, Scottie Popped explain why a great player might not be a great leader…maybe the 2nd or 3rd best of a squad could be

    Kyle Lowry...the difference between Harden and Lowry isn’t as great as this CF bubble would have u believe...I’d rather have Lowry and some role players over Harden, that would’ve been an automatic title the past few years

    No its not. Its a sport. You keep grinding. Did you ever see Jordan do that kind of ****? Hakeem?

    Harden isntninterested in winning. Raise your hand if you honestly believe Harden would be happy winning it all as the 4th leading scorer on the team? He wouldnt.

    Oh, you think Jordan would be happy winning it all as the 4th (or even 2nd!!) leading scorer on his team. That's super cute.

    Jordan and Hakeem, you say?

    Give Harden Kerr and Kukoc instead of Rivers and House, and then talk to me about hitting shots. Hell, give Harden Maxwell and Smith instead of Clemons and McLemore.

    Give Harden Phil Jackson or Rudy T, instead of MDA.

    Offenses weren't the same, and personnel sure as hell isn't the same.

    Instead of Clemons and McLemore the Rockets should get quality guards such as Westbrook and Gordon. Don't know why Tillman doesn't do it.

    I hope Harden at 35 is as good as LeBron at 35. I pray. And I guarantee you hope so also.

    I’ll never forget this moment in the middle of the WCF game 5.

    Close-ass game. CP3 was tuning up, Harden was struggling and so was KD/Curry.

    CP3 was having FUN, and had child like energy trying to pump James up some while he was in one of those weird body language modes.
