Dude is a flake. Chris Paul was the only reason that series was competitive. All Harden had to do was put 1 game on his back and win and he couldn't even do that. I'm not the biggest Harden fan in general, but if ever there were a time to trade him, now is it. I've been a semi-harsh critic of Morey in years past, but he's accommodated every excuse people have given this guy as to why he can't show up. The coach he wants? Check. A HoF PG to relieve him of carrying a team by himself? Check. One of the best defensive teams the franchise has ever seen? Check. Despite all that, he still puts up Westbrook-like shooting splits all throughout the Playoffs... for the last 3 years.
I really don't understand why people like or respect him as a player. His game is softer than his mentality, not to mention frustratingly inefficient. Obviously I'm a small minority of Rockets fans of this mindset, but I shouldn't be. Everybody is already making excuses for why he didn't show up. Morey would catch flak at first, but they need to pull the trigger and get rid of him.
