"Kevin Martin is close to Harden"






"Kevin Martin is half as good as Harden"




"Kevin Martin isn't fit to touch Harden's beard"

OKC fans tried to make it seem like losing Harden wasn't a big deal.

I don't think it was the worst trade in the world for OKC. From Harden's point of view, I think to really flourish the way he has, he had to get on a team where he could be utilized as a legitimate franchise player, not a No. 3 option. I'm not saying it isn't great to have a guy like that coming off your bench, but that could only go on for so long.

OKC wasn't going to be able to keep all of those guys and Harden is too good to be a non-starter, non-first option.

He had to go and the package OKC got in return was about as good as it is going to get. You are never going to get equal value for a player of Harden's talents. What you can do is acquire a bunch of assets to be used in a later trade or to develop young talent.

Martin will serve as offense off the bench and Jeremy Lamb, two first-round picks and a second-round pick give the Thunder plenty of flexibility to go out and get a guy that will really mesh well with the foundation they've built. If they can use those assets to build a formidable front court, it will have been worth it come playoff time.

We'll see how it turns out in the end.

No doubt Harden is a beast, though... my god.

Fixed.

Let's not get carried away though people. Harden is going to be a really good player, and OKC probably should have just paid him. With that said, let's not act like Harden is Jordan now.

17 PPG in two games for Martin and he's 6/9 from three and 10/10 from the FT line. He had two or three assists tonight, too.

Obviously he's not as good as Harden, but he's playing the "Harden" sixth man role pretty well so far. Tonight he did it perfectly. He hit a big three, a jumper, and got to the line two times in the fourth when OKC blew the game open.

What people need to realize is that James Harden wasn't gonna be a 25+ ppg scorer in OKC unless they got rid of WB and/or Durant.

I think Martin can reasonably give them the scoring Harden provided off the bench. What they'd miss what Harden's playmaking and ability to create shots when needed.

But see, if Harden was on OKC he wouldn't be putting up these numbers.

He's a beast, but he's putting up these numbers in Houston because he's the first option, he wasn't that in OKC and he wasn't going to put up these numbers in OKC.
