    4 vs 3 is usually good for the offense. The optics certainly aren't good for Harden, because it makes him look uninvolved and uninterested when he keeps himself at a distance to drag away the second defender.

    What? Clearly when it came down to it, Harden picked WB over CP3 as Nook said. Of course it wasn't some nefarious plot as the PG trade came out of nowhere.

    Harden and WB played differently in OKC than they do the Rockets. Harden is clearly more skilled offensively and has the ability to adapt his game to better suit playing with a non shooter in WB, but he doesn't. For whatever reason, Harden/MDA prefers trying to fit square peg into a round hole.

    yup they ignore it because they refuse to believe it and want to think their own made up narratives are the actual truth. I've repeatedly reposted @Nook breakdown of what happened. They will ignore it bc it isn't convenient for them

    3 pt contest champion Eric Gordon and league leader in corner threes PJ Tucker?

    I'm sure MJ would pass to them.

    If Harden didn't pass out of the double team, wouldn't he be just labeled as a ball hog, selfish and not following the game plan.

    Some Raptors fans are hating Siakim for not showing up in the Raptors / Celtics series.
    Bucks fans are pooping on Giannis now that his game is figured out.

    Not saying any #1 guy on the team is above criticism by their fanbase, and yes the Lakers series look grim, could we have some positivity before what could be last game of the season.

    p.s. Danuel House jokes full steam ahead; he's a bone head for doing that.

    True. But to be fair, Bucks and Raptors haven't watched their star player through 8 post seasons.

    The answers to this question should have been figured out in the off season of last year. The Rockets knew this was going to happen well before going into the season and still have no answers? If they don't have them now they will never have them.

    Replace Mike.
