The Oklahoma City Thunder have been lauded everywhere for their sense of unity and unselfishness. But maybe there are some cracks beneath the surface? According to Yahoo!, James Harden was not very happy following the Thunder's 105-94 victory in Game 1 after only taking six shots in the game.


So they come to Miami for Game 3, and Westbrook stands defiant of his 20-for-50 shooting in the series, and Fisher and Kendrick Perkins had to play the part of tough-guy veterans to ease the frustration of Harden after he got only six shots in a Game 1 victory, sources said. Fisher and Perkins reminded Harden the Thunder had won a Finals game and nothing else mattered.

dont know if this was posted before but i just wanted to put it out for people who hadnt heard it yet

That's the problem with young teams and multiple good players....at some point everyone will want their own team.

You know who needs more touches!! Durant! Harden needs to shoot more and talk less. I love okc but they got some serious personality issues on that team. When i watched it's like westbrook and harden wanna be number one and can't except Durant as the star... Also Durant needs to get vocal with his teammates.

^Agree. Forget about Harden and Westbrook getting more touches. Durant needs to be more selfish and demand the ball. He's shooting at an extremely high percentage!

I'm no doctor, but Harden's constant struggle with "vertigo" (https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/600658_404449282940165_2065468370_n.jpg) suggests he might have suffered a concussion recently

harden and westbrook need to accept the fact that durant is the far superior player and the number 1 option.

they need to simply play off him. shouldnt matter if they get 1 shot or 10 or 20 they need play with in their role and do whatever it takes to help the team win instead of being concerned with touches.

The Thunder need to trade Harden or lock up Ibaka, this is only going to get worse not now but as time goes on. All three won't be able to coexist together, Albeit its just one measly comment and its the Finals but the difference between this big 3 and Miami's big 3 is obviously Miami's each one of the big 3 has lead a team once before..... I'm quite sure Westbrook and Harden in their heads feel they can lead a team as well.

Yup also KD should be getting more shots then anyone on that team.

yea, only thing i a starting to realize is kd has a problem getting his own shot, he really needs a true pg to set him up.

Agreed. The way Lebron has bodied up on him has really exposed his need to add some muscle to his frame.

He needs to complain about how poorly he's been playing on the defensive end.

Funny, that's what your team does on a consistent basis. Trying to buy calls and getting babied.

I definitely see it in harden. A lot of fastbreaks where it's harden pushing the ball, 9/10 he goes for the layup.. He's gonna leave for the max for sure. roethro

That's why OKC needs to trade Perkins and Westbrook to Phoenix for Nash (s&t) and Gortat.

OKC gets a huge upgrade at center and a true PG who still has at least 3 years left in him. Also added veteran leadership....from a 2 time MVP.

Except harden has played like absolute **** so far in the finals.

I kind of like it in theory, but PHX is getting to much more from that trade than OKC.

Amazing after the great ride the Thunder went on in the three previous rounds all of a sudden they are on the brink of destruction and the team needs to be dismantled. Harden is a scrub now because he is struggling against the Heat, a team that just went to a finals last year and have all kinds of veteran experience in the finals. Yet this young Thunder team is giving them a challenge right down to the final buzzer.

Miami hasn't exactly been flawless the last two games themselves.

Although it would benefit OKC, they could definitely get more.

Late in game 3 he waived off durant then lost the ball for a turnover.

I have to admit, I do wonder how OKC would fare with a frontrunner like phil jacks at the helm.
