    Go ahead and say what you want about him, but he had 45 points 8 rebounds 11 assists 5 steals and 1 block in a win tonight. I wish we had a player who could do that with the relative ease that Harden did.

    I don't want a dirty sleezy flopping player like Harden on my team. The only reason he gets those numbers is from shoving people, holding arms, and trust falling with the Refs ( they seem to catch him every time)

    Wish we had a player like Hardin??? So he can play here till he becomes a FA and them get a the f-ck out of town? I'd rather have 10 Wes Mathews than 1 Hardin. Better to keep something you can retain...

    We didn't even make him an offer. I'm sure if we'd have matched Dallas he would have stayed. He liked the area. But a All-Pro NBA player like Harden, he'd be counting the days to get out of this town.

    Sure we could have retained Wes if we'd been willing to ridiculously overpay. Glad we chose a different path.

    He's a fucking scrub.

    11-29 from the field.

    4-15 from three.

    The dude shot 37% from the floor on 29 fucking shots. That's abysmal. The ONLY reason why his numbers look as good as they do is because the guy shot 19-20 from the line. The NBA is a fucking joke.

    Ummm, you may be thinking Tim Hardin, amazing singer from Oregon who was a key figure in 60's NY folk scene. Died of smack. But I was thinking of James Harden...

    Paying Wes that much would be ridiculous. Dallas is going to regret it without a doubt.

    Who else are we going to spend it on though..... We couldn't even attract high priced free agents to replace the guys that left. And they have to spend the money any way.

    He also had 8 rebounds, 11 assists, and 5 steals. He helps his team win.

    Have you seen his stats when he helps his team lose? His win/loss stat splits are ATROCIOUS. This game makes it even more so.
