Really solid point, and what I've been telling people. Before his disappearance in the Finals (due to those SMOKING Miami women and night clubs) ... Harden, IMO might've been their best player for a stretch there, especially in that series v.s. San Antonio.

His playmaking and passing abilities, were IMO the best on the team. He gave them a serious dimension off the bench. Even though he's a legit top 5 SG in the league, and a top ten scoring talent.

To me that big three was as talented as Miami's ... I think OKC is significantly less frightening without Harden. All you need to do is bait UrkelBrook's emotions into trying to beat you himself, because after all he's easy to bait given his intelligence. Then you just body Durant on the perimeter, as he's so frail he has a hard time separating himself from the defense. There is no Harden to save them in tight situations this year.

Kevin Martin to me looks like a regular season stat padder, and he's already ridiculously one dimensional. He's not Harden caliber.

I think the Clippers may end up taking the Western Conference this year. That team is utterly stacked, and they play well together.

It does when a team at this point needs all the HCA they can get. Best home team in the league, and they won their first 6 home games last playoffs. Better defense + hca throughout is their best bet.

If Manu is healthy and Kawhi can play a little better consistently, they can win the title.

Kawhi and Green NEED to step up. The same applies to Neal and Splitter.

I understand those teams aren't the best of the best, but the point is these Spurs would probably be decent even with an average coach.

They have players coming off the bench who could be starting on teams (Jackson, Diaw) and a few PG's who could very well go on to become starters too (Mills, De Colo, Joseph).

Spurs Bench this season:

10.9 apg - #1 in the league
39.8 ppg - #4 in the league
3.7 spg - #2 in the league
46.6 FG% - Tied for first

Sorry, I don't watch their garbage. I've kept a good eye on the Spurs for a long time.

I think the Spurs can win the title, but I think Stern might find a way in the playoffs to make sure the Spurs don't make it.

Two Conference Finals appearances is more than some teams have ever seen. Not to mention this was after we started getting "old", yet we are still competing even with two of the three cornerstones of our team 35+ years old.

Ignorance is bliss.
