Like I said, chucker like stats. The same thing people got on Kevin Martin for.
this, his scoring is up but his efg is down 10 points from last season as is his per minute production on assists and rebounds - after a couple monster games to start the season he's looked pretty much like some said he would

Seeing as you already judged the trade before an actual NBA game was played this season, I think you already answered your own question.

Funny how so many were thumping their chests and distributing "I TOLD YOU SO"'s with a reckless abandon after his first two games.



The beard, is weird.

Tonight against the Cats

Kevin Martin: 27 points on 56% shooting in 25 minutes


Nope. He sucks right? Hes going to be a terrible third option.


There's nothing worse on this site than posters who refuse to at least say "Hey, hes surprised me."

OKC isn't minding this trade one bit so far.

I didn't follow this thread that closely, but last time I was really active in it I thought everyone was saying the Thunder ripped the Rockets off?

Ever seen a thread where one popular poster talks shit about a player no one ever watches and all the idiots pull a "Yea! I've seen that guys on play 100+ games and he sucks! Good call EH Munro! Me too! Me too! I'm included!"


Yep......

Remind me in a month that I was going to rep you here but it tells me I have to spread reputation around.



Rep from R-Star is like seeing a Leprechaun riding a unicorn. Feel special when it happens, because at that moment, you are bro, you are.

I don't think anyone's surprised yet because everyone knew that he would be a great third SCORING option for OKC. No one was ever denying that. Come on now.

Until he plays great defense and is able to set up plays for others, I am still not surprised at his performance. He's a gifted scorer. But right now he needs to be more than that.

It was an Andrew Bogut spoof. Had to be. Too similar.

if his job is to replace what Harden did for them(which it's not) why would he have to play 'great defense' when wholly mediocre defense will do the trick?

Uhhhh yea, Harden doesn't play anything over average defense, and Martin has actually done that quite well if you've watched any OKC games.

And Harden was getting 4 assists per game last year. Lets quit acting like he was out there setting up the majority of plays like some sort of pass wizard.


If you read this thread, people were saying Martin got shots as a chucker with terrible percentages. I took the stance that he had to since he was the main option, and his percentages would go up now that he's the third option, hes now at 48%.

Lets stop trying to rewrite what people said about Martin in this thread ok?

Maybe you're not understanding the NBA. Harden COULD become better one day even if he's not today. Therefore he's a better player. Harden has been underrated by you and quite a few others and hopefully he develops into the type of player he can be, but bad habits form fast after you get 80million guaranteed to you. The league is so slim with quality SGs that Harden easily slides into the top 5. There's Kobe, Wade, Johnson, and that's about it. Harden is still a tweener though and has a ceiling just a little higher than Martin.
