    Can you build around James Harden as a #1 option?

    Being discussed in the Magic forum, some think that we should target him when he is a FA( even if he is commanding a max salary) others don't. It's about 50/50 right now. I think he is better suited for a glue guy like Manu, I don't think you build everything around him.

    I could see him being a good #2 guy but he would have to have a great great team to be a #1 and still win

    TBH I don't see it. I think he is good because of the people around him. Not saying he is a bad player just don't see him being a number 1 option on a championship team.

    This is such an lame question, LOTS of all-stars can win, you can win in a variety of ways. Asking if we can envision a team win a chip with Harden as its best player then the answer is yes.

    Can you offer your opinion on why Harden see his #'s skyrocket when Durant and Westbrook arent on the floor? He gos from like a 15ppg guy to 30 without them.

    The guy has a boatload of talent but wouldn't you agree that bench players are not on the floor when Westy and Durant are on the bench? And how many minutes has he played with both of them on the bench? Not saying Harden can't play well as the number one option but on a championship caliabar team he can't be the guy IMO.

    Yes, here is a mock team where he is the number 1 option on the floor with some future FAs to add around him.

    pg: Brandon Jennings / Ty Lawson
    sg: James Harden
    sf: Kawhi Leonard/ Derrick Williams
    pf:Josh Smith
    c: Al jefferson

    Well balanced team with defenders and scorers.

    I am really hoping for LebRon to tear an ACL. I don't know how Rose and other players who are athletic jumping all over the place get injured but this orangutang stays healthy forever.

    He's 22 and still incomplete, but he's insanely good at getting to the hoop and drawing contact, and he's an elite shooter; he just had one of the most efficient shooting seasons in NBA history actually. A TS% of 66% on >15 ppg for a non-big is unheard of. Nash has never even quite reached that.

    His efficiency is not because of his teammates, it's just who he is. His numbers were similar at AZ state as a #1 option (only difference being his FT shooting has improved). He's just a very good/efficient player.

    In a couple years, on the right balanced team, yeah he could be the #1 option you'd build around. Although I don't think he ever reaches top 5 player status.

    Yes. I don't think he makes the team a contender, but I think he would be a solid option. It's so hard to find a superstar to build around in the FA, and I think, for the Magic, it would be the best option as they don't have much chance at guys like CP3. And as a Rockets' fan I wouldn't mind signing him for the Max if Lamb doesn't pan out this season. Lin and Harden would be a nice duo to build around, with two hight picks next year.

    If choking and playing like crap in the Finals gets you a franchise player designation, then yes.
