    I think it will still be KD. I’ll say Harden averages about 22 and 6 on this team.

    Harden will have some major things to prove to critics. He may average 40

    lol 22. Harden isnt settling for crumbs unless he deliberately does so, which he doesnt.

    He can get half that on just FTs, add in a couple of 3s and a couple of layups and he is easily over 25 even on a loaded team, without even trying.

    If healthy, him and Durant can easily both average 30+.

    The strength of this team will be each player going for huge scoring nights.

    Relentless attacking at the rim by Harden, Durant, and Kyrie will just tire defense out.

    Probably Durant because of all the open looks he’ll get, but Harden will lead the team in assists easily. He’s more of a playmaker than Kyrie and has been the duration of their careers.

    Durant is not a playmaker. He is a scorer and a finisher.

    Every great offensive player in the league has to be able to play make at some level.

    He will pass of double teams but he is not a natural playmaker.

    When he gets the ball he is thinking scoring.

    Which is why he isnt as good of an offensive player as Lebron, Harden or Curry imo.

    I think Harden will be the primary ballhandler and teams won't leave KD or Kyrie to double him. He'll get easy layups and jumpshots all game. If not, he'll lead the league in assists.

    Zero chance he has a low twenties AND has lower assists.

    People really just don’t understand the magnitude of what about to happen.

    Durant didn't lead GSW in scoring for 3 years, but did in the playoffs each year.

    It'll still be harden. KD will score more the last 2 minutes though

    Probably KD but I think Harden will lead the team in assists.

    Kyrie will lead the team in flat-earth meetings attended.

    To be fair, this is a thread on NBA Dish and not the GARM so I think it's alright to speculate about the Nets' scoring on this part of the site.

    But truthfully I don't think many of us really care that much so you do have a point. I would like to see somebody beat the Lakers though...I hate that franchise.
