No I hear you but to me Harden sticks his arm out and teams just swipe his arm.

Literally no one will touch Tony and he'll fall off a spin move. Auto and 1. At least that's how it happened last game.

I do acknowledge Harden gets a bunch of iffy calls but i don't see that tonight with him off a bum ankle.
I sure hope he does though.

Hell of game between Heat-Lakers

Heat put on show in the first half and start of the second, but LA didn't give up and made it a good game. It was cool of Wade/Lebron to go over and acknowledge Kobe like that. I woulda found the game fun even if the Heat won in a blowout, but the Lakers put up a great effort. Would love to see these guys make a run for the postseason once Kobe gets back.

On a serious note, 19 straight regular season wins vs. Western opponents for the Heat, 1 more to tie the nba record.

It's def a fair arguement.

Wade is more selective of his shots hence the higher basic fg%.

Wade has all the intangibles and D on his side but Harden is a better shooter.

I'd love to see how Wade carried a team w/o Lebron at this age but at the same time he's in a great situation.

Based off of everything, it's close. Really depends on what your team needs. a 1A option or a 1B.

Defensively Wade is hands down better than Harden. Offensively I give it to Harden, but as a total player, Wade (when healthy) is probably still the best.

So...

Do to the personal on the HEAT roster, it dictates that Lbj is going to be in control of the ball, do to the fact that Spo has fitted the entire office around Lbj aka con-artist.

This doesn't mean that Harden is near Wade skill level or better, just because on the Rockets... Their persona; dictates that Harden should get the ball.
