    According to many, you're a delusional homer if you DON'T act this way.

    Last post prior to today's early morning bump was sometime in September of last year talking about Paul George being a deadbeat dad, lulz.

    Why wasn't this bumped last year?

    Man, are you guys even Rockets fans? I know it's been a horrible start - but how about standing by our proven players a bit? Everybody freaks out when a player turns his back on the Rockets, but so many fans are ready to turn their back on the #2 in the MVP race last season (and should have been #1) after not even 20 games this season.

    Harden has a tendency to start slow in a season. Look up his stats the last seasons. But he also has a tendency to really turn it around.

    The whole situation was bad - people not hitting their shots (including Harden), a coach that couldn't stop the downward spiral and a team that is missing a clear team leader. Harden is not the kind of leader that takes control of the locker room and right the ship. But he is still so valuable.

    He just may be the best scorer in the NBA - Curry is ridiculous right now, James is the best all around player and Durant is still Durant - but still Harden can score in so many ways. Harden is clutch as hell - one of the most important things in your stars. Harden makes everyone around him better. And Harden has shown last season, that he can be a pretty decent defender.

    I know, we have not seen much of that thi season. But how about standing by our players through tough times? They got us to the conference finals in the WC - now it's our time to repay them a bit by just supporting them until they can turn it around.

    not a fair bump honestly, George went through some horrific injuries.

    I don't think comparisons or who would you rather have questions are important.

    Bottom line for me is that I've never seen a player give so little effort on the court.

    I can't support a player like that...haven't worn my Harden gear since the 4th game of the season.

    If you don't have the drive or passion, can't lead by example you don't deserve to be a fan favorite. I hope he plays well to lead the rockets to wins, but I have no faith in him leading us to a championship...whatsoever.

    I would probably have Westbrook and maybe Drummond in there too. DeMarcus Cousins if he would get his mind straight.

    Perhaps because George was injured.

    Harden played well last year, but he wasn't great. The defensive end lowers his overall evaluation. He tried early on, then reverted back to his norm. Rockets escaped elimination and made history with his *half-effort self* on the sideline, playing cheerleader. Harden's weak-minded self gets mad, diva-style, and sabatoshes McHale this season. Shockingly, we're still playing like crap post-McHale... at home and against teams that are struggling.

    Harden is no leader.
    He's not a true #1.
    He's second-rate
    He's a "B"... more ways than one
    He's Pippen. Robin.

    Consider the Harden-George comparison as theirall-around effort.

    The answer is clear

    I don't even know why I come to this board anymore. The curry dicksuckers are just as bad as the LOF. But at least Lin was on our team. These people trash all of our players

    If you think Harden didn't trash himself, you should stay away from this board.

    I'm a fan, not a cheerleader.

    I'm pretty sure he means Lebron - he's calling everyone by their last name

    Paul George is a great player he's my number one wing player I would pick to become hardens side kick. With that said harden is undoubtably the better player not even a fair comparison and PG is my second favorite player in the NBA behind harden.

    This comparison seems to come up every year because James is a slow starter, by years end one player will be avg 28 6/6 on 60% ts and one will be avg his normal 22/7/3 on 55%ts. I hope I don't need to explain which is which.

    If I was morey I would be trading anyone on the roster for PG not named Harden that's a core you can build around for the next 5-7 years and really contend

    Bev/JH/PG/DMO/Capela

    Best defensive and very good starting five in the league. All parts would compliment each other perfect 2 really great wing defenders around JH with a stretch 4 who can score down low and a great pick and roll defensive center.
