It's not true lol. We lost to Toronto because he only played half a quarter
[–]durban456 [分數隱藏] 27 分鐘前*
Main difference i see is the role players are making their shots now and building chemistry. KD will slide back in nicely when he's ready. Not to mention trading or belittling the player with the 4th highest ppg in the playoffs ever, 3rd highest in the finals, cuz of some regular season wins seems dumb.

Haven't watched a Nets game in a while, why's he still out? Wasn't it just for Covid protocol? Did KD get hurt
[–]New Jersey Nets tunamelts2 5 指標 41 分鐘前
hamstring...it's clear there's no reason to rush him back right now. they might hold him out until the all-star break.

Remember Kyrie/Harden being “unplayable because there’s only one ball” as a duo according to our resident r/nba experts

I’ve literally never seen a case where too much playmaking has caused a problem. Not once.
And yet I still see this opinion on occasion. The other day someone told me that the Wizards shouldn’t draft Cade if they get 1 overall because they already have Russ.
[–]Knicks CptnBlackTurban 28 指標 8小時前
They've been looking unstoppable with just Harden and Kyrie.
[–]Clippers bonerang 34 指標 7小時前
A lot of that has to do with Harris shooting 50% from 3s on 6.7 attempts per game.
Harris has been the best volume 3pt shooter in the entire NBA this season and he certainly doesn't get the respect he deserves.
[–]Nets frankensteed 13 指標 4小時前
Joe is 5th all time in 3 point percentage and is currently leading the league in 3 point percentage for the second time in three years. I think people are expecting him to fall off hard and don't realize how consistent he's been for years.
[–]Warriors freedmni 8 指標 6小時前
No disrespect to Harris- that’s an insanely high mark he’s hitting at BUT the man is getting almost entirely wide open looks this year. That is definitely different than what say Luca or Harden are doing from 3.

Since Harden joined the Nets, through 19 games he is averaging 25 points, 11.6 assists, 8.5 rebounds on 50/42/86 shooting splits with TS of 66%. All career highs except points and FT%, while having his lowest usage rate since leaving OKC

[–]badboy56 37 指標 8小時前
Harden is a walking 50 win team, we’ve seen this before. For all intents and purposes, harden is insurance for the nets that they don’t end up a 3-4 seed with tough round 2 matchups because Durant or Kyrie missed time. Once the playoffs come around, Durant will be Durant.
[–][GSW] Andre Iguodala rapper_warrior_ninja 235 指標 10小時前
was pretty skeptical on the Nets' depth with any of their stars missing after trading for Harden, but Harden is definitely the best of the 3 to have on the floor for Brooklyn and I'm not sure many Nets fans feel differently
he started off kinda slow and passive but he's easily the best floor general I've seen play in a nets jersey since like kidd
[–]Nets BarstMain 76 指標 10小時前
I completely agree. Ever since he got here, he’s been bringing out the best in Kyrie and the other guys night after night

He's better than Kidd.
[–]TheNumber42Rocks 83 指標 10小時前
I honestly have him even with KD right now. Harden is making guys like Bruce Brown, Jeff Green, and Ty Johnson get so many open looks and they are cashing in.

Harden has been better since 2018, him and KD are toe for toe in scoring, but what he lacks in defense compared to KD he more than makes up for in playmaking.

Dude Harden scored more than the rest of the Rox starters combined in the elimination game against the Lakers and people still talked about him choking.
More than four other NBA starters COMBINED. The fuck else do you want him to do? Block Anthony Davis? Save your failing marriage? Like damn.

[–]Lakers percbandit 29 指標 9小時前
People love to diminish Harden but he is very much on the same level of KD as a GOAT tier scorer but his playmaking is vastly superior.
Now surrounded by actual elite shooters that shoot with volume, there is literally no way to slow down his offense.
[–]VVDtakemyACLinstead 11 指標 11小時前
He’s an elite passer. Even as 6th man in OKC, he was miles ahead of RWB, especially in the PnR.

Yeah people forgot that the Thunder turned it around after falling behind 0-2 to the spurs by handing over PG duties to Harden during the 2012 series.
[–]Mavericks ThreeGuardLineups 57 指標 11小時前*
I gotta say, I was sleeping on Harden's playmaking ability based on the way he played at the end of his tenure in Houston. When he wants to be, the man is the best passer in the league. I've watched several games now where Harden is spoonfeeding Jeff Green or Joe Harris or another role player wide open looks.
The minutes with KD/Kyrie out and Harden completely running the show are something to behold.

Harden has always had the tools and ability, he's just lazy as fuck on defense usually. He was playing damn good d in the playoffs last year but Westbrook was coming back from injury and was playing like ass, so there was no way they were getting past the Lakers.
[–][HOU] Shane Battier puffz0r 20 指標 6小時前
Harden had to carry all the offense on the rockets. It was always a choice on what he spent energy on considering he was a good defender in OKC His consistent problem wasn't effort (which, again, was a choice) but that he has a tendency to focus on ball watching instead of sticking to his assignment.. If he gave 100 on defense AND offense every night he would probably already have suffered a career ending injury.
