      Regular season maybe, but during the playoffs where the refs don't call as many small fouls Harden's game doesn't work.

        When I first knew Steph was going to be the best ever y'all go back to college and watch when Bron went to watch Steph play in college and the way he looked at Bron when he scored a 3 the way he looked at Bron like he coming for him not looked up to him

              I needed this recorded somewhere...Warriors in 5 Wardell JR will break 2 records and get his first finals MVP...Boogie will come back and when its shown that Steph is doing amazing is when KD will come back and that, may change things...

                James Harden is one of the greatest midrange shooters you’ll ever see... just the Rockets philosophy doesn’t allow him to showcase it anymore.

                                    Colin doesn't get analytics
                                    Most efficient shots:
                                    1. Free throws
                                    2. Dunks lay-ups
                                    3. Uncontested 3s
                                    4. Uncontested midrange 2s
                                    5. Semi-contested 3s
                                    6. Semi-contested 2s

                                    Because GSW can shoot 5(Contested 3s) at above avg rate they get can get more efficient shots (1-4). That's why they win. That's how analytics works. Most teams can only shoot 6 at above avg rate. Unless you're Giannis who shoots 6 at a high rate that it becomes more eficient than 5.

                                                Uggh there's a huge point you guys are missing and I'm a huge Steph Curry fan but IT'S A TEAM SPORT..The Warriors, Cavs, Heat, and Spurs won those rings not just Curry, LeBron, and Kawhi when LeBron doesn't have the right coach and players around him what happens? He gets swept......twice. I arrest my case

                                                  Harden doesn’t shoot midrange not that he can’t, bad take

                                                    Bruh have ya notice he said Seth curry not Steph curry 😂 but in my heart the warriors are better without kd cuz next year Klaus need a Max contract for the splash bros and we can find someone good for kd spot and work with that

                                                      Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes are the only 2 guys that tell it like it is. I have way more respect for them than Shaq (an idiot living off of his 7’ 2” 400 lbs frame) and Charles who have egos that block out the sun.

                                                        Harden is a great scorer that's it he is not that impressive to me Tracy mcgrady was better than him

                                                            If it's about having a chip to be considered "in the goat conversation" then we should be ONLY talking about: Jordan, Kobe, Steph, Duncan, Wade, and maybe even LeBron , & Dirk.
                                                            Giannis, KD, Kahwai, haven't led a team to a championship yet so I don't get how they are even in the conversation at all.🤔

                                                              Mel Enriquez  5 months back

                                                              Definitely a fan of Stephen Jackson. Very smart. Great insights on people and the big picture. Others are so focused on stats and analytics that they forget that those don't measure some intangible things. Morale, synergy, team work, leadership, etc. Analytics can't measure those. That's why Westbrooke can pad his 3-ple stats all he wants, but they will never win a championship. And he won't reach the heights and respect that he craves for.

                                                              Same with Harden. This 1-on-1 and single or 2ble or even 3ple player egos are not going to take them to the next level if they encounter a team that plays 5 people in harmony, each one knowing their roles, and are allowed to create on the floor. Also a team willing to take risks and put in their 2nd stringers in crucial points, if only to teach and train them. If a team can roll in the the lesser player and inspire them to be the next Curry, Green, Thompson, etc., then a fire is lit where the 2nd stringers step up and know they have a future. The Harden, Westbrook, and even Lebron James style does not inspire the lesser players. So, when the chips are down, the main players are injured or have a bad night, there is nothing to pull them up. And this happens only when Management and coach + coaching staff are all in sync and have a mindset of a TEAM, not individuals, or selected holy trinity of players.

                                                              Funny things is, this is not new. This is old news. The history of the NBA has shown that a superstar can take you only so far. But it takes a team working in sync to the championship. And to repeat it, one requires it. Even MJ eventually realized it. That is why they can go back and win it the following year and so forth. Yes, having a superstar is good. Even 3 of them, but in the end, basketball is a team game. The sooner coaches and the front office realize this, they will forever be wondering why they can't go the final mile. These guys also better stop focusing too much on data and analytics. They don't measure other things and that is why they are befuddled why GSW wins even if they are not the best in many metrics (8th in 3-pt shooting for example).

                                                              It is a shame that Stockton-Malone didn't win a ring. I am a fan of Stockton. Always will be. Unfortunately, MJ and his crew were better and denied them a championship. Sad. Had MJ retired, they have a good chance to have won. But that is reality. Same with my other idol, Pistol Pete. One of the greatest, but never won a ring.

                                                              I also win counter most analysts that KD will move to NY or elsewhere. I agree with Jackson here. If KD has his ego checked and not for personal glory or is worried of his history as others are (cough-cough - like Lebron or Westbrook), then KD will create a new path to his own immortality. He will cement his legacy. But not what he thought the path most take. For him to leave GSW, he does not know if the new team has that synergy to take him to a championship. He does not know how he will gel with a new crew. If there are egos in there, it's going to be an uphill battle. They can be successful in the regulars, but it will not take them to the final mile. Maybe it will, but that is a big question. Now it is a gamble for KD if his new team mates. If he moves, he is going to be guessing what his future will be. If he moves only for the money, he will get it, but his legacy might be diminished.

                                                              Once he is healed, with what the others are doing, he will have to step up and prove his mettle. If the 2nd stingers and nobodies are inspired, then he knows that he will have to step up and show them that he is worth his pay and he is as good or better. Overall, this will lift the team as a whole. And who knows, maybe he will start to learn the system. After all, he can now see the wisdom of Kerr and how a team really works in harmony as a whole. Maybe, he will start to learn the GSW way. For sure, this will elevate his stature and skills further. If any, and he likes that kind of play, he may not even leave anymore! :)

Harden is just an over dribbling, whining/I was fouled idiot. Hopefully to add salt to the wound...the Greek Freak wins MVP this year. 😂
