There are now four teams in the West with a better winning percentage than the 76ers. The Sixers are also ninth in SRS.

Just some context for those saying Embiid has it locked it up and those shouting "number one seed in his conference!"

James harden right now is arguably a top 3 or 4 player. Has absolutely raised the Nets offensive efficiency to all time great level with his playmaking and has carried the Nets to 6-0 without KD. Harden right now is the best offensive player in the NBA!

Elite playmaker and elite scorer.last 6 games without KD he is averaging 31 points 12 assists 9 boards and carried the Nets to a 6-0 record

He won’t win MVP, but I do echo the sentiments people have around Harden. He’s stuffing the stat sheet for BKN and has pretty well decided to become almost their number 1 rebounder. They will honestly be so hard to beat if healthy come playoff time.

The Nets are a half game out of first place.

The media will punish Harden for his trade demand and because he is now playing with Durant and Irving (although they have only played 7 games together), but he should be rapidly climbing up the list.

Before Schroeder went out, the Lakers were actually 5-2 without AD, posting better numbers even defensively when AD was out.

No it wasn’t like it is now. Not sure if you are trying to deny hardens effect because that’s downright silly. The players efficiency has also increased since the harden trade. Plus they were 6-6 pre trade and now are 21-12 since.

Good thing they are getting their real MVP back after tonight then. After that should be better basketball than ever.

No doubt Harden has a great effect on the offense obviously but im just stating there were already an alltime great offense before he got there.

They were 7-6 pre Harden but that includes Kyrie missing 6 games and Kd missing 4. Main issues were they didnt even know the rotations back then, Nash making alot of rookie coaching mistakes and Kyrie/Kd missing 10 combined games.

Sorry but their Real MVP is probably not getting any minutes tonight unless it's late in an unwinnable game...
