    Funny how some people here read that comment as petty or insecure. In context, he’s simply saying his team is going to continue to play their style — focusing on off ball movement and passing. He has zero reason to be insecure when it comes to the Rockets.

    But why did he have to mention about the Rockets when nobody is asking about us? Imagine if our coach when asked what kind of offense we would run and said, "We will do what we do. We are not going to be Milwaukee running our guy into a wall 70 times a game." There was zero reason for talking about another team in answering that question.

    He's right. We rely too much on one player, and that affects us as a team. The analytics about Harden's efficiency, which Morey and D'Antoni relied on, don't adequately account for the opportunity cost of stagnating our other players.

    Don't get me wrong. I love Harden and respect the work he has put into expanding his game, at both ends. And I wish we had deprived Kerr of one of his rings. What I'm talking about here is a flaw in the calculation that we should put the ball in Harden's hands for much of the shot clock because he's so efficient.

    I think the Rockets need a General Manager that knows how to build proper Championship teams.

    It starts with the draft, sign defender, slashers that can create for himsrlf and shoot the 3.

    Lou Dort, Christian Wood, Anthony Bennett are the ideal players we need on the team.

    The Rockets really need depth with more defenders.

    At least Harden can carry a team. Unlike pretty boy Curry who milked a little bone fracture in his hand for the entire year so he won’t have to play and be embarrassed.

    Steve Kerr still waking up in sweats and knowing that he can't coach 99 all stars to beat a Harden led team without referee intervention.

    Sad case.

    NBA tracking data goes back to 2015-2016

    Harden has never lead the league in pick and rolls run per game in that time.

    His season high in that period was ~ 11 pick and rolls per game in 2016/2017.

    Harden this season ran about 5 pick and rolls per game.

    The 1 year overall leader since the tracking data is available was Trae Young this season with almost 16 pick and rolls run per game.

    So there’s that.

    this is a little much. you remember that year he missed the first half of the season. the warriors barely limped to a record of [checks notes] 39-4. ok, that seems good, but i think i remember them having a legendary interim coa...luke walton?!

    it's amazing that golden state's genius level coaching, backed by epic playoff performers curry and durant, sidekicked with first ballot hall of famer draymond green, sidekicked with additional first ballot hall of famer klay thompson went up against moron mike d'antoni's simplistic offense, james harden's myriad flaws that make him such a loser, perennial playoff failure chris paul, all using daryl morey's spreadsheet-with-no-common-sense style, and was able to take 2 out of 5 games against them. how could we be so stupid??!!!

    It might actually mean more if Stevie earned that series. 9 points stolen by refs during crucial runs.

    **** the league. Not buying nothing from those bozos

    Exactly. The people who read it that way assume Kerr has some hidden agenda because he still can’t sleep at night after the rockets almost beat his team. Typical delusional thinking around here. The guy has multiple championships. C’mon now.

    Never did like Steve Kerr. He’s highly overrated as a coach. He should just keep his little bird mouth shut.

    Warriors have eliminated us 4 times in the last 5 years. They absolutely own us and will continue to do so for as long as we’re led by the iso king.

    Come on dude. Not a self aware statement when we are 0-4 against them in the playoffs.
