    harden's only flaw is he gets gassed too easily when he plays at too fast a pace. If harden had the stamina and the energy of an average nba player and wasnt asthmatic he would already have a ring. Westbrook flaws are that he cant shoot, and has relatively low iq for a pg. Harden like Lebron, CP3 and now Luka have the what i call the magic johnson ability( which is the ability to control the pace and tempo of any game).

    Harden is the most effincent volume scorer in modern nba history. When usage rates go up, that players play is supposed to drop. Not go up. utah jazz analytics guru David Locke said it best last year. James harden is the most dominant offensive player under 7 foot in nba history( yes that includes jordan and kobe)

    You might love what Miami has but also a bunch of other teams. and those teams go 2 decades before they get that. And the Rockets don't have the owner for that culture anyways.

    Must admit...
    It was hard watching Harden get a triple double on another team..

    Im sitting here drunk wondering why Wall and Gordon are sitting out missing yet another game...

    Ah, Harden with another elite efficient scorer. That's what he needed the whole time in HOU. Harden is the best PG in the league. He just needed someone to help him hit shots in the 4th.

    So many elite shooters and playmakers we had during Harden’s tenure, huh.

    Excited for that game. Harden had a hard time against the bucks because they were literally standing on his left side lol.

    Will be interesting to watch.

    Chris Paul isn't even in KD's stratosphere as a scorer. Be honest with yourself.

    Was Kobe a bum for only averaging 22 points, 5.7 boards, and 3.4 assists on 44% shooting in playoff elimination games?

    I never said that he was in the same stratosphere as KD.

    CP3 that season was a damn good playmaker/scorer and we saw first-hand the recipe for a championship with a Harden-led Rockets team.

    Harden + an elite offensive player w/ high bball IQ + long, lengthy 3&D guys.

    The buyout market will be interesting.
    They might be good to move to the Switching Defense.
    Harden is good down low on defense

    I didn’t know that Harden got to play with prime Shaq and then also have 1 of the most talented rosters like Kobe had from 08-10 while being coached by Phil Jackson. Since elimination numbers are everything, was Kobe a bum for only averaging 22 points? Yes or no? Could u also explain to me why Kobe quit in game 7 against PHX in 2006 and why he shot 6-24 against Boston in game 7 of the NBA finals? Thanks

    Harden is the one that needs to prove himself. Kobe has 5 rings. Harden has provided nothing noteworthy for a winning cause.

    You see how his teammate Durant got a tap on the shoulder and got rewarded with a foul. That's what Harden is talking about. Enjoy that big market privilege Harden....
