    Looks good. But a lot of those minutes when he's playing without Westbrook and Durant on the floor, he's facing reserves. It will be interesting to see how his game translates when he's always facing the opposing team's best defense.

    just kidding, but great stuff... makes me really excited for this season.

    I am not expecting a title this year or even a playoff run, but the fact that we are young, have talent, and a direction makes me excited for the first time since t-mac/yao prime days.

    Great stuff man.

    I like the fact that there is an upward trend as well. But the stats could also be interpreted from the point that Harden plays better when Westbrook and Durant are not on the floor at the same time.

    Those stats are misleading since he was facing reserves.

    well durant and westbrook's stats shouldn't count since for the most part they're facing players less talented than they are.

    1. Teams substitute all their starters at once.
    2. Starters aren't always better defensively.
    3. Harden is at his best with the ball in hands. Durant and Westbrook are the same. Something had to give.

    What about when Westbrook and Durant are both not on the court, because that's what we'll have.

    Very encouraging stats.

    I know last night I said we gave up too much and we should have used these assets to get howard. Now that I have had a night to think it over, I think this was a good trade. In essence we gave up Lamb, Lowry, and a protected 1st round pick from Dallas for a guy who potentially could be one of the top 10 players in the NBA.

    Are Asik's numbers misleading because he was facing reserves?
