    Shimmy? Looked like he gave himself goosebumps. He's got skills that give him chills.

    That was pretty sick.

    When I saw the highlights of the game today, I remembered four to five years ago when OKC was in the playoffs. My first time watching Harden play and I was awed at how good he was. I was surprised he wasn't in the starting line up. My friends would talk about Durant or Westbrook and I'm like yea they're good, but that guy Harden is up there with them.

    With his renewed effort in defense, he should win the MVP this year if he keeps it up.

    Started a new myGM on 2k15, traded Howard for Embiid, and traded everyone with a salary of over $5 mil a season for scrubs except Harden. Simulated the whole season and I think they went 63-19 and won the championships with Hardens rating at 99.

    He's got that soccer lower body--superior balance. The prototypical basketball player thus far has had a higher center of gravity. The beard also accentuates his head fakes.

    Dragic has cited soccer as one of the tools that helped make him a good point guard, but he doesn't have those Bale-esque explosive moves countered with misdirection like Harden shows.

    I love the epic call. 3 man booth, with all 3 saying ohhhhh twice.

    I think every person watching that said the exact same thing.

    Is it weird that I thought of bballholic when Rubio was on his knees trying to guard harden?

    Honestly, I felt bad for the kid.....:grin:

    That end-of-quarter 3-pointer is almost automatic at this point. I used to hate those shots, but he almost never misses them anymore. He made each attempt at the end of the 2nd and 3rd quarter in last night's game alone.

    Guy is awesome. We are spoiled.

    Does anyone have video of that similar play late against Wiggins, over on the left side? Not as evil, but just as cold-blooded...

    I can't wait to see him in the playoffs this year. He has grown leaps and bounds from that Portland series.

    Like the crew on the tube said, if you truly love BB greatness, watching James this year is a moving masterpiece. It is so RARE to have a man of his caliber and to know he loves being here and is here for a while. (Till retirement, right Les ?)

    If anyone dares state we should "move Harden".....well...he's got a move for you !
