    Hayward and the progression of Tatum and Brown were always the big wild cards for me with Boston, which is why I had them lower in my own rankings pre-season. But I was wrong on both accounts....

    This seems like the obvious answer. But it's still really, really early in the season. Lots of players are hurt or getting over injuries, and teams are still adjusting to new personnel. I think we'll...

    To play devil's advocate to my own take, the one thing I'll say against Harden is that he started the year off just absolutely awful shooting from the floor. In his first five games, he shot a...

    Since you clearly didn't take the time to really respond to my factual, data-based post and just threw out random opinion-based replies with zero evident to support your claims, I'm not going to take...

    Right, it happens. Guys get hurt, and it causes certain players to step up and take on more than their usual usage. The big difference is Harden is putting up insane numbers and helping his team win...

    Did you miss what I just wrote? The team isn't healthy. Far from it. The team they scrapped together last night had only four guys from the regular 8-man rotation: Harden, Tucker, Chandler and...

    Look at the box score and who his supporting cast was. His No. 2 scorer was an undrafted rookie. Four of the team's best players were out, including four of the team's top five leading scorers. Also,...

    I can't believe they won these last two games. I had basically pencilled in losses in my head knowing Capela, Gordon and House were out. Westbrook being out last night, even with Wiggins out, seemed...

    Yeah, but he was on a minimum contract the last time around. That's a lot of money to us, but to an owner of a team worth $1 billion+, it's nothing. The risk was pretty minimal from a financial...

    I love the double standard people have for regular season games. A few years ago, Kawhi blocked Harden's game winning attempt against the Spurs in a regular season game and everyone lost their...

    Yeahhhh.... I literally said that same thing like 14-15 months ago. I was wrong then. I'm guessing the same thinking will be wrong now. Melo just isn't a guy who helps you win games anymore, not...

    Portland is truly desperate to make a move like this. I wish no I'll will on the guy and hope he can get back into the league, but he was awful in Houston.

    If a team with Harden and Paul couldn't...

    Oh man! What a huge surprise—another garbage anti-Harden thread! (But considering it's from you, I'm even less surprised.)

    Normally I wouldn't have time to poke holes in all the anti-Harden hate...

    The Clippers admittedly got screwed by a bad 6th foul on Beverley tonight that I didn't agree with. But I also think they still had a chance to win that game at that point and completely fell apart...

    I don't know what I love more: Harden absolutely dominating down the stretch tonight or Austin Rivers goading his dad and trying to get a technical called on him, then laughing when the T was called.

    I know that nobody believes me when I say it, but James Harden is a pretty competent defensive player. In half court, you could do a hell of a lot worse in terms of perimeter defenders. And Kawhi is...

    Pretty damn good first half by the Rockets—easily the best defensive basketball I've seen them play all season long. Considering Westbrook sat most of the half and they're still up 12, I like their...

    Those are great, convenient stats of a small sample size. Let's look at a larger sample size, like I dunno, maybe the 2017 regular season?
