    It's really funny how angry you get. I should stop comparing you to menstruating women. Women on their cycle don't get as frustrated as you get off some silly stuff. I said it before: It's not a good look, man.

    from the skills you moron.

    again, if Harden is that athletic and physically gifted, explain his defensive discrepancy on the perimeter and in the post. Harden fares so much better when he can guard players while standing around as opposed to when he has to quickly move his feet. what is your excuse?

    Says the guy who starts a thread as a knee jerk reaction to one play. The Rockets lost on a number of fronts in this game - shouldn't have even been a close game late. The "Harden sucks when the game is on the line" narrative is counterproductive because it looks past all the other glaring errors with this roster that allow teams to hang with us - like the fact that our defense gives random scrubs career nights on the regular, or the average rebounding(in fairness this was a bad matchup for us and to be honest - we are built to play GS - not twin tower bigs), or the lack of competent ball handlers on the roster outside of Harden and CP3. Your post just feels like complaining about the tiny scratch on the new luxury sports car. Sure it's annoying, but you are driving a freaking luxury auto when 98% of the people you know are driving far worse cars.

    Stop excusing Harden, we all know his lazy tendencies with getting the ball and trying to get loose from his man. Really wonder if teammates call him out on it, since MDA doesn’t have the balls to do it. This is on Harden and coach to come up with a better way to get the ball in the hands of either Harden or CP3.

    Homie, I'm not talking basketball with YOU, because you're incapable. I'm having conversations with other members in this thread (some of which you have quoted me) that may not agree with my position, but have the maturity to communicate without frothing at the mouth.

    harden offensive game mostly relies on skills & BQ than athleticism you moron. but his single biggest weakness on offense - the off ball movement - also happens to share the same root cause as his defensive lapses (lack of mobility and agility in general). so what is your excuse? just lazy?

    You see, Incapable. First page of this thread was a simple post where I addressed everything you're asking me. I won't do your work for you. You're too busy flying off the handle to have simple conversations.. Harden is not infallible. One wrong word against Harden and you think everyone hates him. That sh*t is tired.

    I keep saying it: It's not a good look.

    LOL you triggered that Harden is the MVP you need to make **** up?

    he's good enough to bring the ball up the court.

    you don't have to have a kyrie-like handle to just bring the ball up the court.
