    so, sorry.....

    harden is 5 of 20 from 3

    22 of 25 free throws

    not seeing any generational greatness here. more of a “compiler”
    He can't be guarded.  What are you even talking about?!?

    He had 15 rebounds...  His A/TO rate sucked though...

    He is scoring at will.

    He averages 36/6/8 a night...

    Shoots almost 500 from the field,  37% from 3.

    What don't u like about him?

    Pacers season is in jeopardy. 
    This is sad.  I really like Oladipo too.

    Hopefully he has a quick recovery.

    don’t love his foul drawing, don’t love his traveling, don’t love his iso game.

    that said, he IS unguardable and he’s about all the rockets have, right now.

    I agree with the fouling.  I've said that but he has been on a tear for a few years now.

    His post up defense is pretty good too.  Love him for that at least.

    Dude, I've praised his game before so I hate when something like this happens to anyone...
  • PoncierPoncier Posts: 9,375
    Read about Oladipo's injury...another case where I'm glad I wasn't watching the game.
    (Was driving home during the final four a few years ago when that kid from Louisville had the gruesome injury, heard it on radio, made a point to not seek out any replay)
    Hope he recovers but I'm sure he's done for this season. 
    Had the misfortune of dislocating my kneecap when I was younger, not a pretty sight.

    Wob is the same fellow who doesn't see greatness in Tom Brady and declared the Belichick/Brady era over in October of 2016.

    Donovan Mitchell is pretty good. He will win 6th man of the year at some point in his career.

    Harden can't be guarded because refs call a foul when a player breathes on him. I acknowledge that he is an excellent player, but he is not some generational freak. He is certainly in the top few offensive players in the league, but also in the bottom few defensive players.
    If other top players (Curry/Durant/LBJ etc) had the usage rate, shot attempts, and ridiculous free throw attempts that he had, they would be scoring a heap of points too. Lets not even talk about the travelling.....it's worse than Lebrons
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me

    Heard a great stat today. 

    If u take away Hardens freethows and 3 pointers he would still be leading the league in scoring. 

    Now all this will go for naught if he fades he fades away in the damn playoffs again.

    I don’t like “ball hogs” aka MJ, kobe, harden.

    yeah, I know this might be how you win but give me GS or the old Jazz for a balanced attack.

    So, famous ball hogs.

    Jordan, Kobe, Iverson, Nique Wilkins, Carmelo to name a few.

    All of them played ISO ball.  When they learned how to play nicely with others, via Jordan and Kobe, they win championships.

    So I'd like to see Harden and Westbrook both win at some point as they do distribute the ball but apparently their teams don't distribute to them...

    Sad but the Pels never stood a chance once Rich Paul entered the fold.  You know Lebron’s guy was praying for an injury filled season.  

    New Orleans is probably going to get the biggest haul in NBA history

    Don't think that's quite an even swap.
    Embiid plus a couple picks maybe.
