    It does not mean Westbrook is not a top 10 players.
    He has load management.

    James Harden is the only player to be named First Team in each of the past four seasons.

    You mean we'd get a Point guard that plays great disciplined defense, doesn't turn the ball over and a great shooter from anywhere on the court? Sounds like an ideal fit next to Harden. Sign me up.

    I'm starting to think it's incredibly difficult to play in this system along Harden. You basically need to be Harden to thrive with Harden. Not even Chris Paul could sustain that for more than 1 season, just ended up injured half the time.

    We inflated Lowry's value, taking him from a sub at Memphis to a bonafide NBA starter.
    Dragic was good in Phoenix, but better after his time with the Rockets.
    Same with Bev, though he's not a great PG by any stretch. Still, we turned him into an NBA starter.

    A valid argument can be made that we've given up on some very good point guards, but we don't make them worse.

    And before anyone brings up Ty Law or Lin, just no. Those two tanked their own values.

    That doesnt explain Cp3 having a injury problems before Harden. Lol you think playing with Harden caused Cp3 to have a down year or injured, how does that make any sense? Cp3 had a down year. He got right, changed his diet and got in better shape. Its stupid as hell to think playing next to Harden somehow exhausted him. There is no reason to believe he would have been bad this year, no reason whatsoeveer.

    I'm thinking that your adoration of CP3 makes you think any criticism at all, no matter how valid, is hate.

    Both of them should be on the 3rd team. Harden doesn't even play defense

    Goran Dragic and James Harden wouldve Grown together with the Rockets. They are both almost the same age.

    Both around 26,24 years old and both can play PG and SG. Both are Lefties, Both have Euro Styles.

    Same reason Gobert did it's writers voting, they vote based on name. That said, he was on fire there for that pre pandemic stretch.
