He keeps thinking you were the one questioning him on the okafor thing, but it was dre. Previously I didn't correct him in hopes of reading an entertaining confrontation between you two.

Well you know these guys have been quick to point out when Harden has a bad game, or KMart has a good one...

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

Some quotes from ESPN after the first quarter of the season is done.

Danny Chau, Hardwood Paroxysm: Thunder. There aren't enough superlatives to convey how good OKC has been on offense, thanks to improved ball movement and the addition of Kevin Martin, who has significantly bolstered their numbers from behind the 3-point line. They have the best record in the league and the longest winning streak. I think there are a few clues as to why.

James Herbert, HoopSpeak: Oklahoma City Thunder. Who thought their offense would become this much more deadly with Kevin Martin taking James Harden's minutes? Martin has scored as efficiently as expected, and it has been a pleasure to watch Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook make up for the loss of Harden's playmaking.

Nubyjas Wilborn, Hawks Hoop: Thunder. Whoever thought these boys were going to fall off without James Harden must have forgotten how amazingly brilliant of a player Kevin Durant is. Kevin Martin has filled in rather nicely, Russell Westbrook is balling out of control and Serge Ibaka is patrolling the paint with Navy SEAL-like intensity. This team seems to have learned from its loss to Miami and wants to win it all.


Averaging 16ppg on .464 shooting thus far and playing every game. Not the black hole chucker who should have been injured by now like many labeled him in this thread.


It's only one quarter through the season thus far, but can one or two posters please at least acknowledge that he's filling in Hardens role amazingly and hasn't underperformed like they said he would?

Why are so many posters on here afraid to ever admit to being wrong? Yes, I'm talking to you EH.

He's been much better than expected, that's for sure.

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

Kevin Martin has been injured just as much as Bynum, so I guess I'm a bit surprised R-Star doesn't consider him as injury prone. Martin will get hurt and miss his annual 20 games. There's still plenty of time left.

And if he doesn't, are you going to come back to the thread?


When I used to criticize Bynum, I also came back to the Lakers forum and wrote that he was proving me wrong when he stayed relatively healthy and was putting up the best big man numbers in the league outside of Howard.

I have no issue with admitting when I'm wrong.

Martin used to play a ton of minutes, take a ton more shots, and get a lot more defensive attention. To me its not crazy to think he fares a lot less chance of getting injured now that he's the third scoring option on a very talented team.

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

Harden with another lights out spectacle. 5 for 20 today.

Where is this effective scorer everyone told me about? This player who shot nearly 50% a game? Where is he? Because Harden is shooting a 43.8%
Where is this amazing passer? Where is the player some called "The real playmaker on the Thunder? Where is he? Because Harden is only averaging 5apg and leading the league in turnovers.

And where is Kevin Martin the chucker? The guy who could never fill Hardens spot on the Thunder and would take the team out of games with his chucking? Where is he?
Oh, he probably isn't still playing, because I had multiple guarantees he'd be injured by now. Nope. Still there. Still playing and filling Hardens role just fine.


You know, I pointed all these things out months ago and was told I don't watch basketball by a few posters. I'm not always right, but when I'm wrong, I own up to it. I'm still waiting for anyone, anyone who posted in this thread against me and others to finally admit that at least up until this point, they were clearly wrong about this trade.


Anyone?

are you saying that 29 points on 20 shots is bad?

None of his 10+ trips to the line counted as a missed shot. You understand that right? He took 20 shots, made 5 and missed 15.

Re: James Harden TRADED to Rockets

Rockets won that game. They are a game over in the West and according to R-Star every player on their roster sucks. Personally I don't think they have a tremendous amount of talent either, but I don't watch them enough to have the same level of expertise on this subject that others have.

Is he worth more than what the Thunder offered him? No, but to get a legit 20ppg sg that you didn't draft, you're going to have to pay a premium.

He's forced to play behind Russell "I need to shoot the most on the team because I'm the bestest" Westbrook and Durant. If he were to get the green light to shoot 20x a game, he'd probably average near 25ppg.
Snap. I was right on too.
