Yeah Harden looks pretty good as the #1 option in Houston. Wait until he has more weapons around him. And yeah he is only 23 years old. Houston is the youngest team in the NBA.
MY Hope/Mock for 49ers 1st Rd Draft Pick
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 194 lbs
40 Time: 4.42
Current team: University of Florida Gators football (#5 / Cornerback)
So your telling me that if u swap richard hamilton for james harden he wouldnt have a chance to win a championship with the old pistons ? Harden would clearly be the face of that team..
You guys need to understand .. Building a team towards a championship with someone being the best of the group is different than expecting one guy to single handily lead the franchise to never before seen heights ..
Only guys like lebron & kd can do that right now.. LITERALLY no one else imo..
But yes james harden can win you a championship as the best player on your team as long as you build it correctly.. Its who you have around him. From owner to the front office to coach to players and to the people around him personally..
It's safe to say the rockets don't suck. They have four straight blowout wins against some of the best defensive teams in the nba: the bulls, the grizzlies, the sixers and the knicks.
The rockets have scored at least 120 points in three straight games, and they shot a ridiculous 56% against the bulls.
Anyway, I don't want to jinx this damn team--just noting the rockets are already starting to realize their potential at a much earlier stage than most predicted.
31 points 6 assists 5 boards on 61% in the last 8 games. BTW, Houston has won 7 of those 8 games with wins in New York, beaten the Grizz, Lakers and the Bulls.
