When will Harden and the Rockets fan stop whining 1:33 pm Fri Feb 28 EDTRemoved

lmao Harden responds to Giannis taking like 5 jabs at him and elbowing him in the head during the ASG ​ and this guy goes "WOW WHEN WILL ROCKETS FANS STOP WHINING" 1

I really feel like everyone is overreacting to Harden s interview 5:06 pm Fri Feb 28 EDTRemoved

New team for the first time since hed been drafted, playing with dislocated fingers coming off a knee surgery. Makes sense he wasnt. But if he had, yeah hed be in the mix which is crazy because Harden would be too. 4

Has a team ever brought bench players on in the 4th due to a blowout and had to bring back the starters because the game got uncomfortably close 12:50 am Sun Mar 1 EDTRemoved

Definitely remember seeing it but cant remember what teams. It was also more the team that the bench got back into the game putting their starters in to try and win. So yes but I have no evidence. 0

Refs not giving Harden the dunk in the Spurs game could have monumental playoff seeding impact3:22 pm Sun Mar 1 EDTRemoved

They were 4 seed instead of 2 seed last year because of one game so yea it could, but they have lots of opportunities to make up a bullshit loss 1

Total rebounds are an inflated stat 3:42 pm Mon Mar 2 EDTRemoved

Offensive and contested rebounds are clearly more important but no one wants to use more stats than we already have to. It is a little silly when people act like 15 rebounds is so impressive when only like 1 or 2 are offensive/contested. Doesnt give enoug 2

Do you think pat Beverley intentionally tried to hurt Russ on that play 4:41 pm Thu Mar 5 EDTRemoved

LeBron James creates 26 5 points through assists while Giannis Antetokounmpo creates 15 4 points per game4:01 pm Tue Mar 10 EDTRemoved

Giannis has the lowest amount of contested and offensive rebounds of any of the top rebounders. He gets a lot of uncontested team rebounds created by guys like Lopez doing all the work boxing out. Dont overvalue them. 2

LeBron James is the MVP no debate5:06 pm Tue Mar 10 EDTRemoved

Lebron is definitely the better basketball player, the question is if he showed it enough throughout the regular season to win the award. If he continues to play like this and they get within 3 wins at the end of the year I think hes earned it because th 3
