Another monster game from The Choker 37 FG 29 3FG 7 TOs -14 and the big ol L 12:46 am Sun Jan 6 EDTRemoved

Its not like he didnt have an argument to be above KD and Steph before this season 2

He was trying hard for it in the fourth though -1

The downfall of James Harden7:21 pm Sun Jan 13 EDTRemoved

No, Austin Rivers and PJ Corner God Tucker are winning this game, while they drag Harden to the playoffs, despite his best resistance 1

Will Rockets fans finally turn on James Harden8:07 pm Sun Jan 13 EDTRemoved

After this game, hell be shooting like 15% from three on the season. For an MVP calibre season. Hes what, 1-74 from three this game? Incredible -7

Why assume they make the playoffs? If you really think Harden can withstand the force of AD and the Pelicans for an entire season you must have been intoxicated by the beard -1

Will Rockets fans finally turn on James Harden8:07 pm Sun Jan 13 EDTRemoved

Tell me one game that has been worse than this one... Ill wait. Harden better give out half his contract to DanUel House and efficiency God Clint Capela for dragging his G-League self to the playoffs, if they even get there (right now I give them a 25-3 -5

Would curry still be the 4th best PG of all time if he didnt have a super team to depend on all his championships 9:35 pm Thu Jan 17 EDTRemoved

Hes probably better than the fourth best of all time. But well never know, it would probably be a different environment and we dont know how he would perform. I think people probably underestimate the help it is to have great teammates, and I think it is 1

If James Harden had as many FTA Game as Steph Curry his true shooting would be 57 5:01 pm Fri Jan 18 EDTRemoved

Thats like saying Curry would be shooting x if he shot threes as inefficiently as James Harden. Currys TS is so high because of his legendary three point shooting mainly, just like Hardens is high because of his free throws. But at the same time, you make 1

Is Kyrie the most skilled player in NBA history 11:54 pm Fri Jan 18 EDTRemoved

PSA Harden has 20 points going into the 4th Quarter his legendary streak of 30 point games could end tonight9:53 pm Tue Jan 29 EDTRemoved

Its probably good for him that its over. I think he needs to get that chip off his shoulder if he wants to seriously be able to find his shot again because you have to think with a Westbrook esque shooting slump from Harden these past few weeks it has to 1

James Hardens 30pt streak is in Jeopardy10:17 pm Tue Jan 29 EDTRemoved

I think Harden is either just not able to find his shot mentally or hes already exhausted. But I think what this game confirmed to me is that, as it stands, unless he does find his shot, James Harden should not be a top 5 MVP candidate and the Rockets are 1

Is Hardens insane 30pt streak as insane as it sounds taking usage rate FTs into account 11:14 pm Sat Feb 2 EDTRemoved

I dont think Steph Curry could do what Harden is doing, he might, but he hasnt, because to me Hardens durability and endurance to play such a long time with high usage and not suffer from injuries is probably nonpareil in the NBA today. No one has been ab 3

Is Hardens insane 30pt streak as insane as it sounds taking usage rate FTs into account 11:14 pm Sat Feb 2 EDTRemoved

But it isnt for the Rockets. Because unlike if KD or Steph went off for this long, if Harden wasnt doing this, the Rockets are relaxing with the Suns at the 14th seed. For the Rockets, plagued by injuries, this isnt just an irrelevant regular season exhib 2

Who wins MVP in a world where Harden doesn t exists 4:33 pm Thu Feb 14 EDTRemoved

James Harden has 0% chance to win the award as it is. If I remember properly there are about 120 MVP voters. Just to make it clear, lets say this is an extreme example where giannis averages 5 ppg for the rest of the season, Harden averages 60 ppg for the 0

Is James Harden really the GOAT flopper 7:41 pm Sun Feb 17 EDTRemoved

I never knew Wade was a great flopper. Probably because I never saw him in his prime. Personally Im a fan of James Hardens flop game but considering how universally disrespected he is because of how he draws fouls Im surprised that Wade seems to be so uni 1

Yeah that will go down as one of the greatest flops of all time 1

Is James Harden really the GOAT flopper 7:41 pm Sun Feb 17 EDTRemoved

The problem for really respecting Marcus Smarts flop game as one of the best to me is that, while he is an all time great at drawing offensive fouls, he doesnt seem to draw fouls on offense to get to the line like I see Harden do. But I think clearly the 1

Wow Ive never really seen PJ Corner God Tucker as a great flopper. 1

Is James Harden really the GOAT flopper 7:41 pm Sun Feb 17 EDTRemoved

That is the question. Is initiating contact in the creative ways that Harden does = flopping? To me it does because flopping is just trying to create a situation that looks like a foul or is a foul 1

2006 Kobe vs 2019 Harden4:59 pm Mon Feb 18 EDTRemoved

He isnt a step below those three. He might be worse, I think hes below Curry and Lebron at least overall, but hes on the same level as them, and so are a few other players 1

Does Antetokounmpo have the best shot at winning MVP 6:49 pm Sat Feb 23 EDTRemoved

Haha he has an over 99% chance to win. We can debate about who should win, but who *will* win, come on Harden and Paul George have no chance. But of course Giannis could have a major injury or Harden could average 50/7/11 for the rest of the season (in wh 1

James Harden Ends the 30 Streak at 3210:26 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

Its obviously trash. 0%. But really 10 for Harden is significantly below average. But I dont think this is really in the pantheon of trash Harden games. Maybe on the lower end but he was coming back from injury 4

James Harden Ends the 30 Streak at 3210:26 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

Its garbage. 28 points on 21 shots isnt as terrible. But this wouldnt make the Mount Rushmore of garbage James Harden performances, not even of games during the streak 3

James Harden Ends the 30 Streak at 3210:26 pm Mon Feb 25 EDTRemoved

Harden has played many worse games where he made over 30 ppg to me I just see that he doesnt get 30 on a performance that doesnt even rank among his worst. But in terms of just shooting it would 1

We all know Giannis is probably the MVP but if Paul George could hypothetically close out strong enough to win it would this be the first time a team had three different players win MVP in a 6 year span 10:46 pm Tue Feb 26 EDTRemoved

Serious In 2016-2017 the record argument was used for Harden in regards to MVP and the historic numbers argument was dismissed for Westbrook In 2018-2019 the historic argument is used for Harden and the record argument is dismissed for other MVP cand3:11 pm Fri Mar 1 EDTRemoved

Its different. Harden and Westbrook all in all had very similar statlines in 2017. So arguing for numbers didnt even make a clear case for Westbrook for that reason. Now Harden has clearly better statline than anyone else. In some ways it isnt, but in o 4

Raptors lead the Rockets 71-69 after holding the rockets to 14 the 3rd quarter 9:57 pm Tue Mar 5 EDTRemoved

This is the problem I have when people call James Harden a top 10 player in the league. For every masterful game he has, he has another candidate for worst game by an individual player in sports history. No other player has bad games like Harden can. I me 1

James Harden does not deserve MVP this year9:28 pm Sat Mar 30 EDTRemoved
