    He played fine, I don’t think he deserves blame. Shot selection needs to change, Morey has ****ed him , the offense stagnates too much and too many last second passes.

    But this series is not his fault

    He gave it away again! You trusted old man cp3 and didn't take it away from Gordon when he kept doing those stupid drives

    I can't stand him walking the ball and wait till 5 seconds on the shot clock to make his decision. It's just horrible basketball.

    Every year we tell ourselves he is the guy, and every year he fails where its most important.

    Its sad he folds under pressure...

    This game wasn't Harden's fault other than being too passive. I want to cry, because we choked so hard. The turning point for me was those Green plays when we should have had a 9 point lead, but he took that fadeaway jumpshot in the lane, then turned it over and then all of a sudden it was a 4 point lead.

    Either way this ****ing sucks, I need to go for a peaceful walk in the park or something. I'm devastated.

    Literally every possession he walks the ball up the court directing traffic, looks up, 5-7 seconds left on shot clock. What an abomination

    Harden once again left his name in the elimination game choking books. 5 missing FTs. Numerous questionable plays. Missing assignments. Unassertive body language. Nonexistent leadership. All in a single game that calls for zero errors. I hope ppl stop citing his 30+ points in those games because they came at huge costs.

    I think it’s perhaps time to part with Dan Toni and Clint Capela. Green is [insert whatever negative comments here]. Capela is made of Tofu. Nene is retiring. Faried, Shump and House need a new home. Gordon doesn’t show up properly in the most important games of all times. Paul is fading. Tucker has limits. James Harden is not a moment-seizer. Gosh the whole roster suddenly seems so glaringly shallow.

    I hope Mr Morey starts to incorporate mental capacity into his N-factor model.

    What a tremendous letdown. What a tremendous letdown.

    Hats off to the Warriors. They deserve to win tonight.

    Harden scored 30+ but was not aggressive at all in winning timel.. no urgency.. I knew this was going to go down exactly like this that's why I was so nervous. Never again.

    This dude loves to be humiliated. I'm not going to be a party to it.

    Harden is a choker. Curry came up big. Harden choked.

    Hmm...I didn't see Harden guarding Curry. Curry just lit up. Sometimes......a player is just better. They doubled him....and it didn't matter.

    It's definitely over for this team. It sucks. CP3 wont have it next year nor will PJ. That's it bro. I love Harden and will continue being a fan, but he sadly will never reach Hakeem status for us.

    What's sad for me more than anything is that I truly don't know when we will be contenders again. It's a true bummer.

    Oh well.
