    He didn’t threw the towel, he was one of the reasons they were losing. And he threw the towel after saying he was gonna go into the next gear to make the playoffs? I don’t believe it. He was lucky he got hurt so he could have an excuse that they didn’t make the playoffs as he had said they would.

    It will be a three horse race between the Clippers, GSW and the Rockets to come out of the West.

    East, it will be the 76ers.

    Lakers will struggle to even make the playoffs.

    Lol you mean to say you forget who brought that chip to Lebron. If I’m not forgetting it was Kyrie and pretty much every ring Lebron has is because someone else saved him from losing the game and the championship. Wade, Bosh, Allen, Kyrie, Jr Smith.

    Wait, wait, wait... Irving, Love, Smith, Rose, Wade, Clarkson, Nance, and Hill are garbage players? I would have loved to have most of them on the Rockets, ESPECIALLY in the East.

    If AD can carry his team during the season, how come he has only made the playoffs twice?

    His contract that he just signed that legally keeps him there?

    He did, he stopped playing at the end of the season, they were 9-18 without Lebron and 28-27 with him, an argument can be made that if they had him for the season they make the playoffs.

    Also, before the season Magic literally revealed that the season would be moot and they were courting FAs for next season. Making playoffs was always some bonus thing.

    So Kyrie gets credit but Lebron doesn't? That's an interesting take. Lebron's defense, points, and assists just don't count in games?

    I never said that that team was garbage, but basically other than his Kyrie years the teams around him were bad. His last team in Cle was just bad. You are also forgetting his first Cleveland run...

    Since he went back to Cavs, he has had both Irving and Love every season except the last one? Also, did I mention he played in the East?

    As for your 2nd point...
    1. He was young and fresh out of high school, not 34 years old
    2. He played with Dr. Z, Davis, and Boozer, hardly your normal role players
    3. Did I mention that he played in the East?

    2 seasons have gone by since that post. Thanks for remembering for me though. Oh, and Harden still hasn’t led us anywhere he hasn’t before that post.

    Hard to forget something so outlandishly stupid. Think about it... you wanted to trade
    • D-Lo and Randle for Harden
    • Lilliard + picks for Harden
    • Buddy Heid + WCS or picks for Harden
    • Ben Simmons + picks for Harden
    Sorry, but that's pretty damn hard to forget.

    Did you also forget to mention that he was an MVP finalist just last year? 2018 he was runner up to Harden lol.

    Kevin Love is in the same area CP3 is in, completely over the hill, bad contract. The irony is, you are projecting. Lebron James is still an elite player and everything you say about him basically applies to CP3...who is no longer an elite player, no longer an all-nba player, no longer even an all-star.

    You mean by the same media group that keeps moving the goalposts for Harden and voted WB over him the previous year? He never deserved to be MVP finalist. You don't take that many games off during the season and still qualify as a finalist.

    I am not projecting, I just support the Rockets.

    Take games off =/= missing them. You cannot legit tell me there were a bunch of games where he did not just straight up half-ass it.
