I don't even like Harden's game, but I think he has played fine in the first two games. He'd doing a great job facilitating the offense.

You stat nerds can keep pointing at box scores or bringing up irrelevant stats like FG% (seriously, what year is this?) trying to muster up an argument as to why Harden isn't a superstar.

I'll take the 56 Wins, 2nd seed in a historically stacked conference, the MVP trophy and a convincing 2-0 lead against a team many said was championship bound coming into the season.

I mean...if it helps you boys sleep at night then yeah.. Keep your outdated FG% stat, you nerds.
The irony of this one is hilarious

Not really, he's passing well and getting to the line but the sub 40% shooting is not going to get it done. The team is going on the game winning runs without him, basically because the Mavs defense is so terrible and the other players have stepped up.

His subpar games will win the first round, but he better pick it up vs the Clippers/Spurs. I think he will. Nowhere to go but up.

That, and the Mavs may be as bad right now as the 6-8 seeds in the East. They're missing two key pieces in Parsons in Harris; due to Rondo being a major asshat there's some serious chemistry issues within the team; and there's a pretty good chance they're the worst defensive team in the playoffs.

Basically, the Mavs have quite a few personnel issues, and the product they actually put on the court plays defense about as well as five traffic cones.

Harden is downright brutal to watch. A blasphemous heir to the great SG legacy.

Lets see, from Jordan to Kobe to Wade to.......Harden?

Haters gonna hate
Box score and stats nerd, FG% and FTs are not the only criteria to determine a player´s impact.
He is nicely distributing the ball and managing the offense, not bad D, getting and making FT as crazy (crucial ability in Playoffs). Helps a lot that rest of team is showing up.

That said, yes, he will have to rise his scoring game if they want a chance against Clips/Spurs

Against Dallas, he can afford to shoot 35%.

But you're right, if they make it to the next round, we need to see January harden.

This guy gets it. See, you've probably actually played organized basketball unlike these 15 year old box score reading geeks who have probably never set foot on a basketball court.

How can anyone watch a Rockets game and think Harden isn't beasting? It's kind of embarrassing....really guys. Less 2K, more going outside and playing actual ball.

While Curry holds the MVP trophy, I guess Harden can hold this L.
