Forget the Warriors comment, can someone explain to me what a "swag champ" is?

Seems like something Nick Young would be interested in competing for. Perhaps Houston should have traded for Swaggy P instead of Brewer and signing Smith?

Thompson looked like a sure fire one dimensional player back then. All he could do was shoot.

Nobody though his defense would improve so much to the point that he shuts down and humiliates guys like J. Harden.

I would argue that the Rockets ain't even as good as their record shows.


Another first round exit?


I like the Rockets as a team. Reasonable balance, hit a lot of 3's, not a horrible rebounding and defensive team overall, though I think they are a top 6-10 team in the league, and not a true contender or a threat to win the West this year.

The Warriors have never proven anything either. Two seasons ago they played Denver who was without Danilo and even Farried wasn't healthy. Versus the Spurs Curry went off the first two games then got shut down along with the Warriors.

Last season the Clipps gave away a game due to the Sterling situation and they still got sent home in the first round.

This season they are legitimate title contenders for sure. We'll find out who's for real in these playoffs.

Funny thing is you could say that if any of the top 8 teams in the West gets hot at the right time they could make a championship run. I cant remember a year where 1-8 was this strong.

Say what you want about 'real contenders' anything can happen in the playoffs, and usually does.

I will say this, GS is a very balanced team, bad matchup for the current HOU team as assembled, credit goes to Curry and Thompson for elevating their games, but IMHO Steve Kerr has done more for that team than anyone else and should get most of the credit. Jackson never had these guys playing like this, and didnt have the basketball IQ that Kerr does to put his guys in + situations and easy basket playmaking.

Kerr is that teams most valuable asset IMO. He could very well be laying the foundation of a great coaching run, love his system.

we do still need to prove that we can play like this in the playoffs. however, you forgot to mention that in the Denver/spurs series we were without Dlee. Then in the clippers series we were with out bogut, eziel (back up center), and O'neil got hurt in the series... effectively leaving us without any centers.this will be a very telling year for both teams. warriors if they can translate this level of play to the playoffs. rockets if they can be more than a 1st round knockout.

I love what Kerr has done with our team but I wont proclaim him the greatest just yet. I want to see what happens when coaches like Gentry and Ron Adams get their HC chances and his staff takes a hit. Kerr strikes me as the type of guy that will learn from them and keep going on but time will tell. Our owner have also stated they will go out and get the best of the best coaching. thats actual part of the reason Jackson was let go and Kerr hired. Jackson wanted all the credit. While Kerr gives his assistants credits for what they contribute.

STRONGLY agree. In the west, you're either in or out. If you're in, that means it wouldn't surprise anyone if you make it to the big dance. Rockets are in. period.

Sure, some teams may be favored against another, but in all honesty, anyone can beat anyone in the top 8 and it wouldn't be considered an upset.

he didnt really turn down the dubs. Warriors would have had to do a sign and trade. It probably would have been Bogut and Thompson to the lakers for dwight and meeks. Lkers refused to do that because they wanted to keep dwight. Looking back though- bogut and klay would have been alright for them.

I definitely think through out an 82 game season dwight is better than bogut, unfortunately for dwight though- bogut has the ability to really minimize his dominance. (warriors as a team played him very well tonight though)

He got shut down by Green/Bogut when he is supposed to be the next great center? What a clown and a fool. Regular season doesn't mean much because Chicago used to spank Miami Heat all the time in the regular season... but Harden is a complete different player come playoff time.

That was the game after. When he said those comments it was before the Houston home game when Klay held him to 26% from the field and he finished with 12 points, 4 assists and 3 turnovers. Score was 131 - 106.

Then there was the game @ Oracle where he dropped 33 points and more than half of those came from free throws, he only actually shot 8 for 18 from the field.

When someone scores 33 off of 18 shots I hear that they are efficient as all get out. Harden does it and there has to be a caveat. He got hacked going in for free throws multiple times and got banged on the arm while attempting a three. He was playing great. Too bad no one else was.

What he said was dumb but he's in (what he probably thought was) a private pep talk. What's he supposed to say? Any other guy in the league that says this in the same situation wouldn't be thread material. And you know these guys say this kind of stuff all the time.

No, if Millsap or Liilard or Paul George says this, it's a non issue; "guy's just trying to pump up his team." Harden says it and it's another reason to rip him.

Fact of the matter is last year and year before that the majority didnt want Harden to succeed, and then when their predictions didnt materialize they had no choice but to hate. Only recourse left.

You slap em in the face with cold hard facts (you know those things that Dubs fans swears by) and for whatever reason Hardens stats are somewhat fictional or they just dont want to believe them.

He played well but the free throws saved him. He got more free throws than the entire Warriors team combined. He was flopping a lot, that's okay, it's what he does. I get it. His team mates let him down.




What he said was dumb but he's in (what he probably thought was) a private pep talk. What's he supposed to say? Any other guy in the league that says this in the same situation wouldn't be thread material.


Yes it would. Especially if they were crushed by that team on the same night.

Oh, come on. I don't think he flopped once in that game, let alone "flopped a lot". Get the **** outta here with that. Haters are just going to hate.

He flopped many times. I suppose it wasn't flopping in the sense of flailing around when no contact is made. It was more "selling" it. Minimal contact, overreacting.

The fact remains. He didn't play that well outside of drawing fouls and getting to the line.

lol, please

Fact of the matter is last year and year before that the majority didnt want Harden to succeed, and then when their predictions didnt materialize they had no choice but to hate. Only recourse left.



What's funny about this statement is that you could swap Klay name for Harden and it would be just as true. :laugh2:

We musta watched a different game. GS won; I don't know why you're complaining. And if you're crying about selling a foul, than stop watching basketball. Every player at one time or another sells a little bit. It's the falling down with minimal contact (you know, flopping, which is what we were talking about) that's ********, whether a superstar or a scrub does it. I don't like it when Harden flops, but I get tired when people just assume or inaccurately state that he flops all game and especially when that fan cheers for a team that has some floppers. Call a spade a spade. Call a flop a flop. Call a foul a god damn foul.

I actually like most of your posts, though. As much **** as the Warriors and Rockets fans have talked I actually kind of like the Warriors, especially now that Preacher Man is gone. They're fun to watch, even when they're wiping the floor with the Rockets. And I get why people don't like Howard and Harden or some of the Rockets fans here on PSD. I get it. But it's dumb to generalize all of Harden's play as straight flopping. Guy's a potential triple double every night. .......ahhh **** it. Who cares.

Sorry but you can't call a spade a spade when it comes to drawing fouls. There's drawing fouls as a way to get to the line, and there is depending on flopping to be efficient like Harden does, and it's petty.

The guy steps back and gets hit on the arm. It's a foul. He goes to the line. The guy goes in for a layup and gets hacked on the arm. It's a foul. He goes to the line. He doesn't "depend" on flopping to get to the line. Nobody would lead the league in scoring or FTs made and attempts by depending on




Goddamnit. Got troll trapped. It's you, lol. Glad I could amuse you.

Phil is embarrassed, so is Fisher. During the off-season, people were comparing Fisher and Kerr. Now no one cares. Kerr wins by a landslide.


Different situations. Reverse the teams and we are talking a different ton for Kerr. Give it a couple seasons see if the knicks can get a team before we can fisher bad
