    Yeah they’re doing to need Durant for a championship unless another contender loses a star. It seems like Brooklyn is just playing it safe with KD as there’s no current reason to rush him back into a game.

    I think Harden/KD without Kyrie is the best duo of the possible ones out there. Without harden, I think it's more of a struggle but they could pull it off. Without KD I think it favors Philly. In the end, I think KD is the key. Could be wrong about it all though haha

    No debate from me. Though I think they could use another defender like tucker.

    Kyrie+Harden+KD = skies the freakin limit

    Kyrie+Harden is better than 18-19 CP3+Harden...it’s not better than Harden+17-18 CP3

    Why are we acting like Harden and CP3 didn’t win 65 games and take GS to 7? Chris Paul had top 5 player impact his 1st year here.

    Kyrie and Harden are better then any year that Harden played with CP3. That’s not taking anything away from CP3. It’s just a fact. Harden and Kyrie might be the best back court of all time.

    except it’s not a fact...Harden and CP3 had an insane record together their 1st year when both were on the court...the Rockets won 65 games and had a whopping +8.5 point differential

    the only thing Kyrie does better than 17-18 CP3 is score...CP3 is better at every other facet of the game, and his overall impact on the game exceeded that of Kyrie’s...there’s really no argument otherwise

    Ironically, Boston could really use Kyrie Irving right now.

    Kemba is straight choking.

    Might be Harden's worst game as a Net, yet he still has an all-world guard to bail him out and beat one of the best teams in the league.

    Imagine a team going 10-2 without their best player, but with their second and third best player.

    He still played well for the most part.... just didn't hit the 3pt well tonight. He did get clipped on a couple of those 3pt shots, but he didn't get the call.

    That's the truth.

    Harden is still very dangerous whilst not shooting that well from the 3pt line. The Celtics were still double-teaming him.

    Might have been a little rust on Harden's part. Hasn't played for over 10 days. I don't count the All-Star Game as a proper game.

    Boston and Miami have only themselves to blame, had they just bit the bullet and ponied up they wouldn't have to deal with this Brooklyn monster.

    Harden and CP was great but Harden and Kyrie will be better.

    yeah I always said, you trade for Harden to stop your rivals from getting him.

    then make it work.
