Harden Making another MVP run. Numbers is kinda crazy. POints and Dime leader with a good team record.

Good to see one of the dudes I was really pushing in the draft 2 years ago is having some success. Everyone was clowning Kris Dunn last year, but he's showing the potential I thought he had coming into the league. His 2 point percentage is still lower than it needs to be to be totally efficient but his defense is suffocating for opposing guards and he's hitting over 40% of his 3's! Similar to Lonzo, I think one day he becomes the 3rd best player on a really good team.

Harden is a machine. Interesting enough, OKC has more talent and Westbrook but not even close to the success of the Rockets, which is funny because Chris Paul does NOT fit that team. This makes me wonder about the "elevating" the people around you. I'm not sure either Westbrook or Harden can do that. What I DO know is, Harden having the ball a little more unlike Westbrook who has to share it with 2 others, was in a better place this morning.

Harden definitely elevates those around him. His team last season had no business being as good as it was. He’s on pace again this season keeping the team afloat when cp3 was out. Rockets are a lot thinner depth wise this year.

It's his to lose, imo. The Rockets have been a juggernaut and the defensive knock of years past has subsided a bit.

i hope rose comes back strong.... all those injuries took a toll on him. i feel for him. sure we all may not be fans of his playing style, but there's no reason why he shouldn't have a place in this league. good luck rose.

it's year 2 of KAT in the Thibs regime. Give it one more year and the injuries are gonna pile up. The minutes caught up to him this season. His efficiency has gone down slightly and his defense has taken a toll with the minutes.
