    But we DIDNT get the whole bunch.. Last year DMo was healthy from the start and was playing great. Harden was also definitely trying harder on Defense. We also had Prigs, smart PG who isn't TO prone, Smith's chemistry with Dwight, they were relaxed out on the court.. Jet was mad Mavs didn't want him so he was out to prove he can still hoop. T.Black knew his role. Kostas was a lite-mini jack of all trades.. Mchale was coaching for a contract.. Brewer got a fresh start and aswell playing with so much fire.. Don't torch me but the offseason did have the kardashians drama..

    Little things...

    Some posters on this thread need to get off the cocaine if they think Butler is a better player than Harden.

    Butler is great, but he doesn't have the feel for the game or passing ability that Harden does. Not even close

    Nope, but he is a two way player, I think Harden IF he gets his act together has all time great potential.

    Of course we waited for that with TMac too and it never happened, so it is a risk.

    I'd do Harden, Brewer, TJ, scrub Dekker for Butler and Pau. Reunite Pau and Dwight ;)

    Lawson / Bev
    Butler / Thornton
    Ariza / KJ
    Gasol / DMo (future Pau)
    Howard / Capela (future Dwight)

    I don't think anybody believes that Harden CAN'T be a better player than Butler... but quite frankly, for whatever reason, Harden has CHOSEN not to perform to the best of his ability... so FK HIM!

    I'd rather have a player that's half as good and gives 100% than one that's twice as good but only willing to give 50% of his effort... end of story....

    go for Paul George, or Jimmy Butler.

    Jimmy still young and has a big potential to develop.

    Harden, not reliable.

    Harden will get there. Get the right players around him and find him 'that' coach. Just watch

    I have said it before and will again: we need to be finding a way to get a player like this to pair with Harden, not trade him for.

    That team would struggle to score 90 points a game.

    It looks like one of those tizzle draft teams where ya gang up on me and say the offense is crap, but I see it as an elite defensive team that is well-rounded and also capable on offense.

    No love for the defense. :(

    Feel like this team would be better than our current one.
