where is the fcuk NO option?
My answer is no. But if you put him with a center like Bynum, and a sixer team, look out nba!

I say no. He is a solid player. Can win a game for you, can win a series for you, but you can not put a team on his back and tell him to win a season for you.
People say he plays well when Durant and Westbrook aren't in....Well to that I say no ****. Because when those two aren't in, the opposing teams starters are not in. Orlando, a team trying to build through the draft, can NOT make a winning team with that and pairing them up with Harden as a MAXED out player. Just wouldn't work. Harden is very efficient, yes. This is true. Put the ball in his hands and have him shoot 20+ times a game and take Westbrook and Durant away and have 1st-3rd year players all around him, you can throw that efficiency out the window.
He is a guy who can be the finishing piece to a team, but not a starting piece to a team.
maybe in 4 years.
good number 2, great 3rd. still best as a scorer in a bunch ( like on the wolves) or a 6th man.
The debate in our forum wasn't weather he would be a #1 option or not. It came down to me saying I would take him over Monta Ellis, Manu, Iguodala or any other sg not named Wade or Kobe. A couple other Magic fans said the players I listed would be better options.
I simply think that's crazy. Harden is only 22 years old and has a complete game. The guy can score, shoot, 3 ball, handles, and pass well. He's only going to get better.
I simply think it would be crazy for someone to think Ellis, AI, or Manu would be a better option to have going forward.
Give it a year or two and Harden will undoubtably be a top 3 sg in this league. Meaning there won't be a debate, kinda how Kobe and Wade are 1 & 2.
Just wait till he's not with OKC anymore since they're not going to be able to afford him once he's a free agent. The guy as a 1 or 2 option will be beasting it in the NBA.
Well you could.. but not being taken seriously as a contender. Harden is your perfect number 2 guy. The prototypical sidekick.

No he is a good 2nd or 3rd option.

The NBA Forum gets dumber and dumber...
No, but he's great #2 option.

For all the people wanting him on their team, know that he's going to come at a price - likely picks and guys on rookie contracts or small contracts. And that's if he's available at all. They aren't just going to let him walk.
Once he improves his D, he could be a number 1 option on a deep team. Realistically, he'd be the second best player on a contender and he's in an ideal situation for OKC where he's the third. He's probably the 3rd best SG now, and will become 2nd soon as Kobe's decline is in progress.
