    The OP is a complete joke of a poster around here... always has and always will be. He's obviously still riding his little emotional high from his dumb arse Lin thread in the dish.

    In my humble opinion, of course

    I think it was the GSW game where we tied the single game record for made 3s. Right behind the basket I believe. But that was like 4 years ago.

    We can all agree that you remain an idiot. So there's that.

    This only indicates one thing. Harden is not a superstar, not even a worthy max player, He is disposable. said the team in western final 4 times in the last 6 years.

    I thought that game was in Golden State? But it sure was a long time ago so I could be completely wrong.

    The GSW game that LCAhmed is talking about was in Houston.

    Simmons and Haralabob talked about this today on a podcast.

    Both agree still a really bad trade for OKC, but Adams might be pushing it out of the worst trade ever label.

    OKC would probably be shooting for their 3rd title this year without that trade

    Westbrick in the last 3 games :

    11/28 FG 7 TO

    10/27 FG 5 TO

    7/21 FG 3 TO

    Averaged 37 FG% and 5 turnovers in three straight losses.

    OKC made it farther than the Rockets did and will be a better team next year. This sucks.

    I've been pro Harden trade since the trade.

    Adams has definitely impressed me this last series, seems like he'll become a solid contributor.

    BUT if OKC had Harden, they'd have won a title by now, imo.

    How would any team stop Harden, Durant, and Westbrook playing 35 min/game, and consistently having at least 2 of them on the floor at a time.

    That has nothing to do with whether the Rockets won the trade or not.

    The Thunder were an NBA finalist and the Rockets were a lottery team when the trade happened. Now the Thunder are a bit worse, and the Rockets are a bit better (or a lot better depending which season you choose to consider).

    As good as Adams was at various times in the series, the Thunder lost because they couldn't make enough shots. Harden would have been useful in that regard, especially when KD and Westbrook were both off in game 6.

    Lawrence desperately wants to be the Skip Bayless of this forum with his troll threads.
