Getting tired of his shoot 10 three pointers and play no defense attitude. It actually wouldnt surprise me to find out if the role players are playing ****ty in purpose.

This is pretty common with soccer ball clubs that have problems with their star or players or coach. They intentionally play ****ty..lol

Wonder if thats the case here.

But according to Sam Amick and Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today, one of the center pieces of the players-only meeting was unhappiness with Rockets superstar James Harden's his style of play. The report revealed that Harden's "aloofness" has frustrated his teammates, with McHale taking the brunt of the issue."

It might not be intentional but they are frustraed with harden playstyle. Frustration usually results into **** play.

Why do you think it would be hard for any NBA player to shoot 38% if given 20 shots? It's mind boggling. Given their statistical outputs, there's no reason to think Thornton or Jones wouldn't be more efficient players. They simply need the shots. Harden is an average scorer.

The idea that they would take ANY risk for something so clearly ridiculous is absurd in the first place. Harden is not leaving, he is going to get one of the biggest deals ever, and those dudes will be real happy they tried hard to ..... make themselves look bad.


I swear you need to be a special kind of stupid to think this stuff up.

It's been 16 games. When he recovers back to his normal percent, which btw is only 5% away from that number, no one will say a word. I notice you didn't want to discuss his actual performance TODAY. I wonder why....

Derrick Rose has the odd game here and there, too. The difference is, when Rose doesn't go off, it's because he bricks his way to a poor performance. When Harden doesn't go off, he's saved by flopping his way to the line for a 10 point cushion.

"Saved" here is just your sad cop out way of saying that Derrick rose CAN'T get to 28 ppg, Harden can, despite his early shooting struggles.

It's okay, we all know you are way out of your depth here. Let's watch you drown as you cite raw fg% though, this argument must have gone better at the nursing home you obviously work at.

To be fair, had Derrick Role been playing in the league's 6 or 7th (haven't checked in a few days) most efficient backcourt, he'd be putting up similar numbers to Harden. He can't go full blown chuck mode, though, because he has an efficient player beside him in Butler. Harden has Lawson, who doesn't fit the offense and couldn't win your local youth program's jump shooting contest.

For some reason, you have man crush on Harden. I, however, can be objective. He's really just not that good, despite how much you want him to be.

Yes, yes...I know.

Harden, who is shooting 38%, is the Rockets, who are 5-10, best player. He's a dominating force in the NBA, which is obviously why they're doing so well.

Is Blake Griffin also not a good NBA player because his team is struggling? Was Jordan not an individual stud when his teams flailed around him in the 80s?

I'll never believe in Harden simply because of his lack of a midrange game. I've made the note in the past that it's been one of the reasons for his teams lack of playoff success. His numbers jumped last year but the problem was still obvious. When faced with adversity he simply doesn't have the ability to bail himself out by taking intelligent midrange shots. LeBron struggled with this in the post-season too, but he eventually found a way to make it work and it took him to the next level in regard to post-season ability & success.

But Harden also can't dominate and control games the way a player like James does. So it's even more integral. It's something that you can see even in his regular season games. When I watch the Rockets I'm often dumbstruck by his absolute hesitancy to play a midrange game. Rather than take open set shots in the MR, he'd prefer to wait for a defender and try to catch them off step, or step back behind the 3. He has so many opportunities that he passes up in MR. The MR is a "lost art", but in a game increasingly focused on the deep, it has been increasingly valuable in going that extra mile.

He's an extremely talented player. I genuinely don't like the guy and his style infuriates me, but he's got skill for days... I just don't think he has "it", as a basketball mind, to ever get to the promise land as the number 1 option.

He's the best SG in the game, but he's really just another Melo to me.

Part of this is on the role players, part of it is on Harden. Harden has always had this playstyle, but now because they are losing they are tired of it? The whole team has to play better defense. It's no secret Harden hasn't been good on defense but they have to fix it as a team. Now to the Lawson deal. I liked the signing when it happened but if Harden says he needs another ball handler to take some pressure off of him, he has to give up the ball. Let Lawson run the offense. Harden will still get his touches but fuk man they have to get Lawson involved in the offense. Lawson is at his best when they are running the break, ball in his hands making plays for other guys. If Harden is gonna say he needs another ball handler then he needs to let Lawson do what he does and needs to adjust his game accordingly or else this thing will never work. Harden can still be effective without being a primary ballhandler but it's up to him to figure out how to make that happen. Winning solves everything. For gods sake just start fukking winning and this chit won't be an issue anymore

It's so obvious even a blind guy could see it. Harden played well last night but the team didn't respond to him. If he was playing well, everyone should be feeding off his energy. The Rockets don't give a fffuuu anymore. Harden expose as the worse team player ever. His basketball style is so hard to watch because his play style is not aesthetic like prime Kobe, he's selfish as **** with the ball, and he doesn't play defense. You can call Kobe selfish as much as you want, but he passes the ball when he has to. Harden thinks he is the team, and he's not good enough to think that way.

This is why Harden will never win a title as the best player on his team.
