Harden is so good, he doesn't need that shit. Then gets thrown out for running into the ref and knocking the ball away...after fouling out. 

He is so gifted but I can’t stand watching him

Agree. If he would just play, he could still get 25+ a night. He's one of the best pure scorers there is.

Watching the GSW lose tonight was great, but holy shit was it bad basketball.

Would be an interesting addition. I would be ok giving up Thompson and Shump. Throwing in the Brooklyn pick for what might be a rental might be too high. I would do the Cav's own first round pick in a heartbeat.

I'm more interested in how Jordan would fit in with the Cavs. How does he help us pwn Boston and GSW/Rockets?

I think TT is better rolling out and playing help defense. Jordan will keep KD out of the paint and keep fuck boi Curry from coming in I guess. I wouldn't QQ about him, don't get me wrong, but in today's NBA I think I'd rather have TT. I don't know, what are you thoughts?

Sixers look bad without Embiid on the court and when they sub out Redick at the same time they look completely unable to score

I would take Jordan over TT. The Cavs need defense. I think TT  has reached his ceiling with the Cavs. Jordan would be a better matchup against the Warriors.

OKC game was very good. Westbrook took over in the 2nd half. OKC wins 112-107.

Is there a statistical argument that Durant is having a better year than LeBron?

Scoring...wash but LBJ ahead

Rebounds...wash but LBJ ahead

Assists...LeBron 4 more per game

Steals...wash

Blocks...Durant leading league in total

FG%....LeBron 56% to 50%

3 PT ....LeBron 40% to KD 37%

Metrics (not my forte) KD slightly better in defense but LeBron way better on offense

 

Thoughts?

^^ I agree with you but I think they'll pay way too much attention to where each team finishes in the conference, too.

Random question: you have to give up your fanhood of current favorite team and adopt a new team. You must watch >50 of their games a year (and only their games), wear their merchandise, etc. 

Your choices are: Phoenix, Sacramento, Orlando, Brooklyn.

Who do you pick and why?

Sacramento. They have young guys that I think will blossom into decent players like Fox and Hield.  They also have one of my all time favorite Tar Heels in Justin Jackson.  Plus you never know what Cauley Stein is going to do.  That guy is a little whacky.

I’d choose to remain a bandwagon fan of my favorite players team(s)

Yuck on those 4 teams, boo on the gear and nope on the 50+ games watched....but if they had LeBron or Westbrook or Giannis I would root for them at least.

Probably Orlando because my friend works in their front office and I can get unlimited free tickets and merchandise.
