    While you’re bulls***tin’.......

    Part of me fears something will be done. There’s a lot of squawking (I ain’t sanctioning it) about Harden and the free throws and the step back etcetera.

    We’ll see.

    the things is they need to CHANGE the rules again or they'll need to be stricter on EVERYONE.

    and Harden will be able to adjust again. while others can't. this happened off season last year and this year.

    I wanna say this about Harden .

    I was really wavering on my hope for the season before this last streak .

    James has reminded me and proven to everyone just how incredible he is .

    We are watching greatness .

    It does get tiresome. You can always tell when the refs get a memo (put Harden on a free throw diet).

    But Harden does adjust.

    Best I’ve ever seen him play, another mvp type season unfolding. It’ll be a shame if he’s burned out come playoffs though

    It’s getting to the point that I’m literally shocked when harden doesn’t score 40 points.

    I really believe he could avg 40 a game if he wanted to but it would clearly hurt the team from a winning standpoint.

    I’ve just never seen a player go on personal 8-10 point runs by himself every game. It’s really insane when I think about it.

    He truley is an all time great he’s playing is best basketball ever right now, if he can drag us back to top 2 in the west the mvp is his I know a lot of us think the media wouldn’t vote for him again but I have a strange feeling they willif he can do and keep this up.

    He’s playing just as good as any of Lebrons mvp years and Curry’s unanimous mvp year.

    I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t avg 32+ ppg this year his shooting is just so much better this season.

    He shooting his twos as good as his last year in okc but with the high volume and usuge.

    Scoring wise he’s reaching heights only seen by Jordan imo. I don’t think even Lebron or kd have been in a a scoring groove quite like this.

    Guys literally shooting 53% avg almost 40 ppg it’s crazy.

    The guy is incredible. We are damn lucky to have him and even luckier that he seems to like it here.

    It’s awsome that he loves it here.

    We also have him his chance and have paid him well over 300m so I don’t doubt that him and his family hold the rockets in high regard.

    Guys gonna have a career earnings on and off the court of well over 500m by the end of his career.

    Not surprised to see overwhelming majority realize that collectively we are taking him for granted. Too soon he will be gone. Time goes by fast and while he is with us it's time to show him some love. He has his issues but he is an incredible basketball player. IMO the greatest player to put on a Rocket uniform whose first name is not Hakeem.
