    Lol. That will be the thing
    He will get those calls now
    Remember
    He is the ONLY Player whose free throws go down in the post season
    That may be remedied this season

    some comments from last night

    “He's the missing ingredient.

    His willingness, even insistence, to get his teammates going was great to see. As KD said, it's really not any different than he's done for years. James is so much more unselfish than people give him credit for, he just gets labeled as ISO God and nothing else. Now, he can do that and is ridiculously efficient at it, but that's not his only gear.

    I was pleased by his ability to make quick decisions, either attack the defense or keep the ball moving. This was perhaps his sharpest criticism, and based on reports from other players, I had a feeling it was something that Harden was ready to change. It wasn't even an MDA edict, it was a Morey directive based on deep stats. It may have been their best option in an heliocentric system with only one star, but this approach is better for our star-studded roster.”

    “He is the perfect PG/playmaker for this team. Harden is a basketball genius. So so happy the Nets have him finally. What a player.”

    “I'm ashamed to say I didn't watch the Rockets much and I forgot how GREAT James Harden is. I knew he was Great, used to watch him all the time in OKC, but I forgot he was THIS GREAT.

    What he did last night, first night with a new team in a new city, was nothing short of jaw-dropping.”

    Harden would have had three mvps if he was playing in New York or Los angles from 2012 till now.

    Post trade, his ranking on the league assist leaderboard has vaulted from 1st to 1st.

    Seems like he is getting the message.

    A 30 point triple double is amazing. It’s what we were use to. Wait till the see his defensive stops and steals. He is him and now the rest of the world gets to appreciate it. Think about Hakeem & Ewing was the same thing. The only thing Ewing had was a bigger market.

    Every other game some players are missing for the Rockets so I am excited to see when Wood, Wall, Oladipo, Brown, Tate, EG & Cousins are all available and ready to play. That's my thought.

    If Tilly dictates a tank, we will NEVER see them available all at once...

    As far as the media flip in NYC, water is wet, what else is new...

    Bro I honestly lost all respect I had for Harden, I understand what he done for this organization.. But the way he handle his exit from here is where he lost my respect for good and I know some people that feel the same..Harden took the easy route, Now the media are gonna praise him like they never hated him which is a prime example of why they hate Houston, this city will never get love from the media and I’m fine with it

    And 2 championship minimum cuz no way the refs officiate him in those markets like they unfairly did all these years in Houston, especially 2018 WCF.

    Harden is the darling of the NY media, for now. But if the Nets fail, implode, whatever, that same media will turn on whoever they deem is to blame.

    2nd best regular-season SG of all time. Choker and quitter when it counts.

    If there is one thing I've learned over the years....media opinions and stats win games more often than points in the board.

    Stop following and caring about people who have bad takes. Y’all get so worked up over the opinions of the dumb.

    It’s only a matter of time before people will call him a top 3 player. Something he’s been for the last 5 years.
