    Flaming HOT!

    Dude was fuming and couldn't stand the praise given to Harden by Nick.

    He was fuming every time Nick said something nice about him.

    I can’t believe anyone would say Steph could put up these numbers for a season after the way the Warriors started the year. They got blown out of almost every game, if Steph could do it he would have instead of getting blown out in front of his home fans night in and night out before deciding a 6 week injury should hold him out for 3 months.


    I do think KD if he shot this much could score as much as Harden, but what he fails to realize is that Harden is also the best passer on the team. So while KD could do the scoring the offense wouldn’t nearly be as good because of his subpar playmaking.

    Harden is putting up historic numbers because of D'Antoni's system? No sir, James Harden is the system. The NBA hasn't seen this kind of production and WINNING at the same time. Everyone brings up the playoffs but how many NBA franchises would even dream of being able to have the success that Harden has had over the past decade or so? He played for Kevin McHale and still put up monster numbers at that time, so don't try and downplay what he's doing. Even if he doesn't win a championship, there are plenty of hall of fame players that never won a championship. The hate is real. I'm just here to enjoy the ride because no matter what Harden does, the masses seem ready to discredit him in any way possible.

    I think we have found Morey's burner account.

    I hate the dude's argument "it hasn't shown to win" when basically the only team that has beaten Rockets are the insane Warriors who beat everyone. He says Curry is as good so then why would you expect Harden to beat the Warriors with any system when they also had 3 other all stars? What a magnificent puppet you are Chris.

    I'm getting sick of hearing the MDA system excuse. Curry has the team built around him, can't but help himself breaking a bone

    As long as the Rockets don't win it all, pundits will view it as an illegit hack.

    If that's the case, why bother watching their "analysis"

    ah, ofcourse the good ol' "anyone can do it with enough shots" argument by his guest.

    Well, at least we know Curry tried this season and immediately got injured.

    Nothing magnificent about Broussard. And he's not a puppet, he's a complete moron.

    FIFY.

    Seriously, the Nike 'family' of brand ambassadors are being paraded in front of cameras with their marching orders straight from Phil Knight. LeBron is the King and Giannis is the heir apparent. Luka will need to pay his dues and wait in line.

    Adidas aka Harden who???

    The league and ESPN belong to Nike.

    Shaq definitely helped Kobe to get the titles. But got to give Kobe the respect when he earned the title without Shaq. Definitely not overrated when time and time he delivered during clutch time. Harden is way better than Wade though.

    I do not understand why everyone talks about D’Antoni system as if any player would be able to put up numbers like Harden. D’Antoni has been in the league for how many years now? Which other player has averaged so many points under him? It’s the first player under D’Antoni system that is averaging so many points. Harden is a unique player and would score the same in any system! Give the man the credit for elevating his game over the years. Not everything about players skills depends on a coach.

    I remember when Melo and Kobe played for MDA and averaged over 36.

    NOT.

    Funny how its always D'antoni system but never the inverse. Maybe Harden's EFFICIENCY would match Steph if he actually played in a system that would give him open looks.

    People forget that 2011-2012 Okc Harden, while not as high volume, led all guards and only 2nd behind Tyson Chandler at an absurd 66% TS on 39% 3FG.

    I'm conflicted. Nick is pro Harden but he's also too pro Lebron.

    How can someone be level headed and correct yet also wrong. :p

    He brought evidence and data to back up all his arguments. He also laid it out clearly even if it went against the grain of other media narratives, great job.
