    It took a transcendent player like Harden for an entire franchise to go all in on ISO-ball....so yea I think we won't see for a while as a path to success. Now as a path to tanking.....

    It won’t be pretty, at least for a while. Cousins or Wood creating is worse than Yao trying to dribble as a rookie.

    I didn’t say it won’t ever happen again; I said it will be a while. I’m 38 but thanks for the youth comment :)

    And while it looks nice, those Warriors style still hard worse offensive ratings than the Rockets despite having 3x as much talent LOL. If the Warriors had the D'antoni offense instead, they would've absolutely ran us out of the gym in 2018 like the Lakers did to us this week.
