    That's because Harden doesnt dribble the ball up court. Bev or someone else does the dribble and hand off past half court. What you really need to look at is usage numbers.

    Irony....the slap in the face that Rockets fans felt today is probably not much different than what Lin felt when they brought Melo in and showed him wearing Lin's uniform.

    Lin/brewer/smith is a good combo off the bench. Better than terry at the moment.

    Taking agenda of lof and loh out of the equation. It would be good but the problem may be the internal conflict if Lin exceeds expectation. It would be the Carmelo and Lin situation all over again. Where Carmelo wasn't happy if the success

    Dear God know. I wouldn't care if he was hands down the best point guard in the league. I can't deal with that stupid drama again.

    Why will Lin rejoin this **** team again ? If I were Lin, stay far away from this organisation and team. No plan, no class, no coach can do anything, no defence, no hope.

    Harden does bring the ball up the court. All you have to do is to look at Harden's number of front court touches vs back court touches and compare to Beverley's or other teams primary ball handlers.

    Useage numbers only show the percent of possessions that a player either takes a shot, gets an assist or commits a turnover. Useage doesn't show how much you hold the ball. You could come down court, hold the ball for 10 seconds and then pass it off and your useage would be zero.

    Just in case you are serious about RR=Nash 2.0

    Nash career numbers
    .490 FG% .428 3pt% .904FT% 8.5AST 2.9TO 14ppg

    Rubio career numbers
    .368FG% .318 3pt% .815FT% 8.3AST 2.8TO 10ppg

    Nash is a 1st ballot HOF, Rubio is a 1st ballot run of the mill overrated PG.


    FYI usually the newer version has upgrades. So I'd say Rubio = Brevin Knight 2.0
