    Way to move the goalposts. Your original point was that T-Mac is better that Harden in decisive moments and would have won us a chip. If T-Mac can't even lead a team out of the first round, full of decisive moments there, how can you even begin to say he is better than Harden.

    Harden can consistently carry any team further than T-Mac has ever shown to be able to. This is an undisputed, long-proven fact.

    T-Mac is my favorite player of all time. He had the tools to be the best player in nba history, but injuries and work ethic got in the way. As much as I love T-Mac, no one in their right mind can honestly say he's better than Harden.

    There is no option for Gordon while having fun, because if there was its not even close.

    YOUR OPINION is way different than a fact.
    You can't prove their teams wouldn't reach the same results by just replacing the two players.

    A FACTOID, however is what you are building, trying to use a fact of "Harden got out of the first round and Tmac didn't" and using it as proof that Harden is more decisive.

    Regardless, TMac being more decisive than Harden is also MY OPINION. I wont be able to prove it.
    Keep in mind that is also MY OPINION that both have the mind of LOSERS.

    Lol imagine Harden losing to those trash utah jazz teams lol. Rockets beat a better version of those jazz teams in the 1st round back to back years.

    Peak T-Mac was almost at healthy Kobe Bryant's level.
    I'd say Peak T-Mac is about the same as Peak Harden. ( excluding teammates )

    Might as well

    Gordon is as close to tmac as tmac is to harden.

    let’s do a Hakeem vs Dwight thread too while we’re at it

    It's pretty hilarious how you are pretending about arguing with facts when you have been dwelling with opinions this entire time. Here are some facts for you.
    • That T-Mac never lead a team past the first round when Harden did is not an opinion. That is a fact.
    • That many have come out stating that T-Mac actively declined to be a leader is not an opinion. That is a fact.
    • That T-Mac cared more about scoring a ton of points over winning is not an opinion. That is a fact.
    • That T-Mac played with multiple hall of famers or all-stars throughout his career while Harden did not until CP3 is not an opinion. That is a fact.
    • That Harden has led teams far closer to a chip than T-Mac has ever done is not an opinion. That is a fact.
    T-Mac stans have always lived in hypotheticals, what-if's, and situations that never happened.
