    just curious if Harden played D to your satisfaction last year, what would the rockets record would have been and what's the farthest could they have reached in the playoffs best case scenario?

    Harden's step back is just such a thing a beauty... so effortless and smooth.

    #12 on Harden's team looks like Big Baby Davis.

    Not excusing Harden's AWFUL defense, but I think Dwight quitting on the team, because he wasn't getting the ball exactly the way he liked it, impacted the team more than Harden's matador defense.

    Not sure where the Rockets would be if Dwight was actually trying but it would be higher than the 8th seed.

    It is good that Harden is not letting himself get too rusty or out of shape this off-season. Hopefully that translates to him getting off to a good start to begin the season.

    Man it's nice to see James getting that explosion back.

    Really showing off that athletism.

    He's actually a very good athlete I don't understand the notion that he's not athletic? His combine numbers coming out of college were very similar to wades. He just plays the game without have to showcase that ability but he did is more than capable.

    I'm hoping we see a lot of highlight dunks from James this year.

    All in all he looks really good and I expect him to have his best season yet and really start attracting elite players from around the league to come play in Houston.

    His lateral movement isn't that great, but his downhill speed is scary for his size and build IMO. What really sets Harden apart is his strength and body control. He can just power through contact and maintain balance to get off a good shot.

    6 threes = 18 points
    1 two = 2 points
    10 free throws = 10 points

    ?
