    Yeah I don't think it's likely but I am still hopeful Rockets trade up to get him even if it's an overpay.

    If he gets them to the finals no more of the regular season crew and their bullshit list of harden anywhere in the top 8 of all time SGs

    needs to be Brandon Roy tier (who was good back in the day)

    This is terrible, terrible bait.

    Lmao, Brandon Roy isnt anywhere near Harden, and would never be voted into the top 75 by his peers.

    Atleast harden had a 45 point game with a game winner without Embiid and 42 pointer with another game winner . Outside of game three Jimmy Butler has been pretty average all series

    Yeah but atleast Butler COMPETES even when having a bad game. Harden plays like he's trying not to win at times

    You watch tonight game? Even the commentators like Reggie Miller was saying he looks intimidated . This guy is about to have an unprecedented choke job. No one has lost a 3-0 lead

    He literally willed Miami back to almost winning. If Harden was playing tonight the game would've been over the first 2 minutes. The difference is Jimmy COMPETES even when he's not playing well. He'll go 5-21, but still do the intangibles like hustle/defense. James Harden will 2-13 with 8 turnovers while while sleepwalking on defense. I'd take Butler on my team any day over Harden

    Willed? Harden willed the 76ers to two wins in the same very said series against the same team . The mental gymnastics here is incredible. He got them actual wins….Who cares they both got exposed against the Celtics under real hard nosed defense….

    One guy is a notorious choker while the other one is called playoffs Jimmy. That’s the double standard… one guy will probably choke a 3-0 lead and is called playoff jimmy

    Turns out they're the same guy. Except Harden completely shuts down in his bad games but Jimmy still hustles.

    Turns out Harden is an all time great who didn't have the best teamates and consistently ran against all time great teams.

    Turns out Butler was a rather insignificant player who had some wow moments in the playoffs, but other than that was nothing special.

    Only on clutchfans can jinmy butler play like absolute garbage, contribute nothing except trying to draw fouls (he got all the calls though), and get praised.

    Well deserved accolades.

    Now the well deserved smoke.

    Imagine being the first star EVER to lose after having an insurmountable 3-0 series lead.

    One thing is for sure, Harden has never, ever, ever choked that hard. Ever.

    I am sure that is not the truth, Jimmy is being talked about on many forums.

    It is not like the Celtics have the worst team, that is like the best regular season team other than the Bucks who folded.

    They have the best players, most stacked team, if they cannot stage a comeback, nobody will.

    I know I would have rooted for a Heat vs Denver matchup but that is just a reality test.

    The Celtics were destined to be a perennial championship team, fringe dynasty if they stay together.

    Speaks volumes to how the NBA wants that 2nd apron to hinder those teams from staying on top.

    I don’t know man - that Spurs series is still the pinnacle of choking in sports. The games situation differed but Harden getting outplayed by a gimpy aging Manu and eventually blocked on a game preserving shot was HARD to watch.

    It's not mental gymnastics lol. Harden's a quitter, Butlers not. End of story..

    Lol. Why is he considered a choker? Because his effort level in crucial games. Wins & loses is one thing, but quitting in the 1st quarter of multiple elimination games is pathetic. You're just spewing nonsense with no context
