Yes definitely. The rockets almost beat the warriors in 18. You replace harden with kawhi and it's a win. Harden scored 28 points on 41% fg and under 30% 3pt. Kawhi would of done better than that plus he would of been way better defensively. He also would of Gave them a good chance in 2016 and 15. In 15 he definitely could of beat the warriors and then went on to defeat a injured Cavs squad. Not sure about 16. I still think he could of beat the warriors but I don't think he would of been able to beat LeBron with Kyrie and love.
