    Harden is simply the GOMT for “my” time!!!!!

    I wonder if this is how the folks back in the 70s felt about Wilt Chamberlain?

    Incidentally - they both seem to have a thing for women too...

    Hmmmmmm. :)

    You think what Morey is doing is wasting his prime? It's also pretty tough when no one wants to deal with the Rockets. the whole NBA is against them. All the GM's are actively freezing out Morey from trades.

    Harden’s better than Wade and could be better than Kobe when he retires. However I do agree Harden needs a ring or 2 at least to support his case.

    "I say it all the time: He's the best offensive player I've ever seen," said Rockets guard Chris Paul, who had 11 points and nine assists in the win. "Like, seriously. He can drive, he can shoot, he's got ballhandling. It's going to be a tough night for you, whoever it is. I don't care what you're doing."

    Its cuz Chris has understood he is old and needs Harden to be no 1.

    If Cp3 was in his prime he probably would have run Harden out of town for not playing defense lol.

    If he was still in his prime Clippers wouldn't let him walk in the first place they would have maxed him.

    Yeah I know but prime Cp3 was also a nagger who who chewed out his teammates for not playing hard. Ask Blake Griffin.

    Cp3 has clearly mellowed out from his "prime" days which is why he can coexist with Harden now.

    I'll say it. Right now Harden's the best player in the NBA. Its not Lebron or anybody else. Harden's only issue is he plays extremely careless at times. His defense is suspect but has improved to where hes not a liability. The media doesn't like him but they should be covering this man

    We have to get the right pieces and win a championship with him. It would be a disgrace to fail and taint his legacy. We have to do it against the vaunted Warriors and make history instead.
