    Well if he showed up 2 out of every 3 playoff games before, it's more like 2 out of 5 now.

    Can still pass and play decoy, but Rockets watchers know how that mostly turns out.

    “Just a washed-up-has-been-never-was-bitter-ex!”
    “Just mad he left Brooklyn and all they got is broke back Simmons!”

    “I can’t commit to that,” he said of offering Harden a max deal. “If I’m the owner of the Sixers, I cannot commit to giving him a max deal. I just don’t see the dedication that I would need to see from my top 75 player. You have to be able to have a certain level of determination and focus on being the best player you can possibly be and also be there for your teammates when they need you the most. … If he’s not capable of doing that as a max player, I’m not going to be willing to now give you a max contract if you’re not showing me that you can handle the situation.”

    I love Harden, the Rocket, but I wouldn't give Harden, the Sixer, a max contract unless there are a bunch of incentives that are based on his conditioning and performance, statistically. He's clearly in his At-best-2nd-Banana stage of his career.

    You’re right & wrong. He’s done as an elite player or even a second banana. No way he gets the max unless Morey has lost his mind.

    Harden looked damn good when he joined the Sixers initially by leading his team with all-around performance. The pressure really gets to him in the playoffs. It's like the playoffs are his kryptonite. No way he is a max player anymore.

    "Let me know" I have been in a fight before because some of my best Viet friends that were being talked to exactly like that in College Station. It was royal rumble type fight with a bunch of racist Aggies that resulted in me getting stitches and black guy that was with us breaking his hand. So yeah I know.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with Harden. Stats are one thing. The countless posts spending a ton of free time doing it, changing an avatar to that etc etc are another and i find it odd. If that's what you want to do and the energy you want to spread around so be it. I can't stop it anyways.

    we were there to watch our friends band play. we were outnumbered probably 2.5 to 1 or so. A few of the girls that were with us even helped because it would be like 4 guys one. The fight spilled out into a street with traffic. It's the worst incident i have personally ever been involved in.

    Anyways good luck spending your time the with quest of letting people know how horrible Harden is while partly justifying it because of random internet people said racist statements.

    **** that. I would rather watch my team make the playoffs every year and make deep runs vs watching a team lose 62 games. To each their own. I prefer winning

    Patience grasshopper. Harden was leading you to nowhere but heartbreak every year. Time to update that AV. Maybe try Jalen Green.

    It is sad to see Harden like this, but I’m stoked for PJ Tucker’s continued success. Glad at least someone from that Rockets era is doing well, along w CP3. Can’t think of anyone else really, although I could be blanking. Dwight got his ring I guess.

    In just a few more minutes James Harden can enjoy his offseason chilling with Lil Baby overseas
