    Ooooh! All this talk of flopping and grabbing, I thought we were talking about "Little" Jamie Hardon the porn star!

    What I want is ANY player that gets the absurd calls that dude does! He's actually always been a pretty good player - why the league/refs insist on giving him "star" stats is beyond me.

    He is one of two players id like to see just get decked by another player when he goes to do his stupid flopping bs.
    He gets fouled enough as is to not just flop around like a fish out of water and get the refs to buy it.

    I thought the league was supposed to be reviewing games and fining guys for flopping and other moves meant to deceive refs into making bad calls. If they'd actually get serious about it, Harden would get about a half-dozen per game for a while and then might actually change the crap he does.

    Yeah, I had to check the box score after the game because it was a pretty quiet 40+ point night and you just don't get those type of games hardly ever. He drives straight on into the defense and throws his hands in the air to get the whistle. It's unfortunate the NBA keeps buying into his antics but the bottom line is it took a one-legged running 3 from Corey Brewer at the end of regulation to force overtime.

    In all honesty, the Rockets are a mess. Ty Lawson, their prize free agent acquisition, didn't even see the court in crunch time and was a complete non-factor all night long. Jason Terry, who has to be nearing 40, is their starting point guard and that's definitely not sustainable, especially in the West. Dwight Howard really just rebounds now; he's completely ineffective on the offensive end of the floor and has lost quite a bit of his trademark athleticism. They just fired their coach and their GM operates like it's NBA 2K with all the trades and tinkering he does. That team is in win now mode but they won't be winning anything anytime soon.

    The fact that they double teamed Lillard the entire game might have something to do with that, but thanks for trolling.

    He got lucky on that pass while in the air to Brewer. Without that one garbage play, this thread doesn't exist.

    Whenever i watch Harden i ask myself why the fuck am i watching these shenanigans? anything is better then this...
    He makes the Euroleague seem superior to the NBA as a sport and as entertainment.

    Buttttttt, i did push for a Matthews <-> Harden trade back when he was available from OKC.
    Dirty players win you championships in the NBA, just ask old ass Ginobili or Derek Fisher.

    Yeah as role players, not as the star. That's why Houston(or anyone else for that matter) will never win a championship with harden as the #1 option.
