While fans talk about laying down for Golden State, players are naturally competitive. Houston represents one of the best chances in the NBA to win.

Plus having two top 10 players, both of whom are unselfish playmakers, doesn't hurt.

So why the heck didn't the Cavs get in on this if he was looking for a vet minimum.

Why are they rockets spoiling a good thing where defense does not matter its all about offence.. They are going to get confused next season especially harden who can only do one thing... To be fair Kyrie Irving is the same...

So I'm guessing the next move is to fire Mike Antoni then. All these defensives players and none of them are 3 point shooters. Don't give stats showing me that they can shoot.

Harden can both score and pass, that's two things. And to be fair, he is top 5 in the world at both of those things right now. Sure, he's a pretty poor defender but I'm pretty sure I couldn't score on him. He's probably a top 500 defender in the world. That sounds pretty bad by NBA standards but it's pretty clear that he's better at the thing he's worst at than I am at the thing that I'm best at. (Juggling!) I'm not top 500 in the world at anything so I've got to show him some respect.

You don't have to be the best at everything to be great at something. That is why Football consists of mostly one way and specialty players and baseball the "Designated Hitter".
