It doesn't matter. This team is what it is. It's totally built around Harden, who will never deliver. D'antoni won't ever give you that extra genius either. Just go out there, and run into the wall over and over until the series is over. No bag of tricks.
Am I wrong?? I'm not a hater at all...I just don't understand why people think it's gonna be better/different next time. The books been out on Harden, and D'antoni for a while now, and with several different lineups, and all these accolades about 3-point shooting, and offensive efficiency, etc etc. Each year it's something else....but then eventually, it's NOT something else. It's the same ol' same ol'.
I'll give the Clippers credit for one thing: They rode with lob-city for a good 4-5 years, and then the owner saw that it was NEVER going to get it done. So he blew it up. Got rid of EVERYONE. You rarely see that. More teams should try it.
If Houston shipped off Harden, and got a new coach....would many Houston fans get all that upset?? I mean, you really can't pull the old "what could have been" card, can you? Yeah....it's gonna suck for a couple years, and yeah Harden is fun to watch, and tears it up in the regular season...but would you really be 'furious' at the front office?? Or would you all totally get it?
Your team....not my problem. Just my 3-cents worth. But I think everyone has to know by now that Harden, and D'antoni are who they are, and that they won't be getting it done. So they can go back into the locker room and have all the truth-talks they want. It don't matter one bit.
Oh...and I know this is a convenient time to sh** all over Houston, but I truly ain't trying to do that. I just saw this article a minute ago, and rolled my eyes. I woulda said all this same stuff a week ago. A month ago. Last year.
