2) Kevin Martin is a finished product and will only get worse, and Harden will improve? Great. You do understand Martins contract is up after this season right? He either resigns in OKC for a big discount to what he makes now, or they use that cap space on other things. They didn't have the money to pay Harden a max contract.

3) Martin has to do this, Martin has to do that to make up for Harden being gone? Have you watched OKC play? He's filling Hardens role perfectly. Hes scoring at the same clip and same percentages as Harden did when he left, so scoring wise they aren't missing a damn thing.




Does anyone here even watch ****ing basketball? Its an honest question.
Question, did you watch the game where Martin scored 26 the other night?

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

So I've watched about 4 Rockets game this season, finally had it.


Where the **** is this defense you guys brought up for Harden?

"There will be a huge hole on defense when they replace Hardin with Martin!" Pretty much word for word from like 3 of you.

Harden isn't even allowed to guard Kobe. The guys is an average defender at best, like I said from day one.


Again, guys like EH, do you even ****ing watch any of the players you talk about? Give whatever answer you want, but the majority of us already know the answer.

Saw some, not all. Is this some "27, not 26!" thing?


Because if so, the Adam comparisons are apt.

It's just the thunder haven't played the bobcats yet, so I thought it was weird you were lecturing people for not watching the games.

Ehmunro still contends Rondo plays when he wants to despite being 12 games away from the record for most 10+ assist games in a row...and this is a guy on his team supposedly

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

Did you watch last night's Detroit game? He mailed in the entire game. The only reason the record is still alive is that Boston spent the last three minutes of a blowout running plays to get Rondo his 10 assists, and that was about the only part of the game that he gave any effort. (Apparently the Pistons refused to let him bring the Boston scorekeepers with him, and they've done yeoman's work in making a mockery of the record.)

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

Every time Celtics fans overrate the importance of a player on message boards EH spends enough time reeling them back in that he winds up being too negative on them going forward. The same thing happened with Al Jefferson in the Garnett trade and with Kendrick Perkins being shipped out. If Avery Bradley comes back healthy, plays well, and winds up in trade talks for Josh Smith only for C's fans to react loudly and negatively, we'll be hearing how Avery's barely a passable third guard.

Huh? I was about the only person on these boards that liked the Bradley selection. I'd even put him on my Boston wish list a couple of years ago when I wrote my pre-draft piece (you can look it up). I've maintained from the start that he's going to be a pretty good combo guard. Of course, I don't overrate him, so you won't see me saying, as Boston fans have been of late, "How could you think of trading Bradley for [insert name of top 25 NBA player here]‽ He's a franchise guard and the greatest defensive 2 in the history of the NBA!!!!!"

Similarly with Rondo, against Toronto the Garden scorekeepers gave him assists on a Jeff Green dribble drive, a Green two off the dribble, and a Garnett step back drive. Because I do watch I see all these things, and know to take the record with a grain of salt.

I believe you're sparring.

It's enjoyable for the crowd.

Ahhhh.... I went back and read my post. I've got her all figured out.


I used to do the same thing with the Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets in the NHL. Once the Preds turned into a good team I quit mixing the two up.

Pretty sure it happens for teams that are terrible so you never talk about them, but have similar looking jerseys when you look at them in your head.


I hate that response after reading it, but its reality.
