    What are your thoughts on the Rockets trading James Harden to the Nets?

      @GOAT don't worry the frontrunners in Clippers will have more ads than real meaningful playoff victories at least... and the ads are not flukey because at least KD, Klay and Cousins are not all going to be injured in ads. 😂😂

      Not so good trade for the Rockets. They should have asked for LeVert and Kyrie. Victor O is not adequate. The Rockets now have three players at least who have had major injuries in terms of basketball none of whom fall within the Top 15. Cousins and Wall are not young anymore. So at least get a LeVert and a Kyrie with some picks to get a good balance of present and future. If Kyrie does retire due to personal reasons, you all of a sudden fall under the cap and you still have a LeVert to add to a Wood.

      I know you basketball is your life and you young NBA players be looking at your fans comments. Lol shout out to you guys. Don't let LeBron win any more rings. I don't want the history books putting this dude over MJ. And unless you kids don't know. There is 2 NBA greatest. Yes 2 because you have to separate the bigs from the guards. Mj and Wilt are the greatest to ever play. If you want to add the small forward then LeBron wins that by default because Len Bias overdosed.

      I will say this. There are how many teams in the NBA? LeBron is supposedly the best player in the NBA and he just happened to be in the Era of GMs going all in on super teams to beat him. So far he or these super teams win rings. So I will give it to the Nets for making this trade and saying you know what we have KD so let's roll the dice and see what happens.

    Bad trade for the Rockets. They should have gotten a rising star in return for a Harden, like a Jaylen Brown or a CJ or a Jamal or a Donovan or a Buddy Hield. And the Nets should have just unloaded Kyrie instead of decimating the hard working young team they had 2 years ago. Now who is going to play defense in the Nets. DeAndre Jordan I suppose.

    The Nets lost a lot of depth. I don't see them going far this year, especially with KD coming off that injury. They're in a position to probably overwork their best player coming off of an achilles tendon surgery. They may have a better chance next year if they can figure out how to play together.

    Harden is the one that has to take a step back & take less shots and be more of a facilitator in the Nets offense. That means probably just 15-20pts a game, but possibly 10assists a game. This allows KD & Kyrie to hunt for shots off ball & off the dribble. It's important that Kyrie gets more shots up than Harden even if Harden actually is the better playmaker. KD & Kyrie's value directly stem from seeking out their own shot moreso than creating for others. KD is the alpha dog so the entire offense revolves around finding him touches in spots he's comfortable.

Kyrie has stopped playing for the team because he was told by the Nets that Harden would be joining the team this season. Kyrie feels like there’s no point in even playing for the team any longer and has requested to be traded or will consider retiring. Kyrie has publicly said that he did not wish to play with Harden who is another ball dominant player. C’mon man
