    No matter what tinman says.

    This is TWO games in a row now where he was visibly bored.

    He even had to ride the bench with how lazy he was.


    That play where he finally drove to the basket? He was almost too lazy to do it

    T-mac might have taken plays off but indeed, he did not ever look this much of a quitter.

    Tmac always brought it in the playoffs, Harden is the biggest fake star in the league.

    harden and tmac are two completely different situations.

    tmac quit... on purpose... because he was being a diva... it was his choice.

    harden is folding under pressure... it is not his choice.

    does that excuse harden? a little, but i now have reservations about him being signed to a max contract if this is all he gives in the playoffs.

    Ahh, you said a bad word.

    Seriously, regardless of whatever Tracy's legacy, or lack there of is, he always improved his numbers in the playoffs.

    I think Harden's just tired and out of shape. Post-season pace has significantly increased over regular season. He was one of the least mobile players in the league in the regular season and just can't keep up.

    folding under pressure is missing shots. what harden's been this series is worse than that. he acts like he doesn't even want to be there sometimes. i just dont understand it. This guys been rightfully given the reins to our team but yet he just seems so...lackadasical about it this series. Its gotta be an injury or something

    they actually showed footage of the huddle long enough to realize "where the F is harden??"

    then they mentioned he wasn't participating and showed him sulking on the bench.

    and that huddle had other bench players in it, so something was definitely wrong there

    It's not an injury... Look how Kobe responds to injuries... It's mentality...

    I am no tinman but dude stop using Tmac's name in vain. Or just stop it altogether.

    He was benched a bit in the 4th, do you think he was sulking because of that?
