    Harden is a really really really good player. Why is it so hard for some fans to acknowledge he isn’t MJ, isn’t good at everything and that maybe the team should do something that is more demonstrative towards winning even if it makes harden look worse?

    yeah idiot, was Larry Bird super athletic?

    and you still haven't answered the root cause of Harden's defensive discrepancy (perimeter vs post)

    Why are you being so annoying. I doubt anyone posting on this board wouldn’t show enthusiasm if harden won. He’s not perfect and sucks at some stuff, learn to accept it and grow up.

    We have another Half of the season to go, and hopefully reinforcements will be coming soon via trade and buyout market. That being said, Harden needs to get his head out of his a** and get his sh** together.

    he doesn't get the full court defence that other ball handlers get when they bring the ball up

    yeah it sucks he went 1-9 from the three and he had 4 turnover its on him

    but suddenly it's not lucs fault for picking up his dribble?

    or mda for not planning for this after what happened in boston?

    or cp3 who was on the court as well?

    ofcourse he is.. he is hardly ever to blame. But i am saying he can get all of his bad games out of his system, get more help, gel with them, and get ready to roll come June.

    i never said he did, but it still coincides that the warriors have multiple guys they can put the ball in their hands to bring the ball up the court while the rockets only utilize 2.

    i just want them to be healthy. I think we need another athletic back up centre as Nene is showing his age and he is slow
