Wade needs to learn to shut his mouth. I understand he's mad, but he clearly didn't think about how to explain it before he said it.

I see nothing wrong with what he said. It's what he tweeted that was obviously not well-stated.

I know it's only been 2 games, but it may be time to stop with the skepticism of him as a max player.

It also may be time for those who thought Kevin Martin was a comparable player to rescind that. ;)

I didn't think Martin was comparable, but I also said Harden was overrated, and the move wasn't deserving of the hype and the contract.


Oops.

Harden may be the better player but that doesn't mean OKC is worse off as a team.

Very nice game by Martin last night btw.

Harden may end up blowing up as a starter but he wouldn't have had that chance with OKC. He would have still be a 30ish minutes player, giving them 15-20ppg, 4-5 rebs and 3ish assists.

The move was definitely worth the hype even if you thought Harden was overrated just because it's a huge deal for a young and improving NBA Finals team to break up their core before they needed to, and they didn't really need to at all. It was a very interesting and risky move.

You keep telling yourself that.

Replacing a legit All-Star with Kevin Martin is clearly a downgrade.

Harden wouldn't have started with OKC, but he still would have improved as a player considering he's only 23 and he also could have seen his minutes go up to about 35 a game.

Yeah, I can't understand how anyone could believe they are not worse off as a team. If you want to argue that this sets OKC up better for the future I understand that line of thinking but not for this season.

Rough night for Harden tonight, 8-25 shooting, though he did have 24 points..

I'll tell you what, this Damian Lillard is awesome.. Very impressed.

Yes, he's a very good young PG.

Lillard struggled badly against Westbrook last night. Didn't see tonight's game, but sounds like he bounced back nicely. The Blazers Achilles heel will be their bench. They only scored 6 of their 95 points tonight.

I didn't see that game, but he did put up 21 on 9-19 along with 7 dimes and only 2 turnovers. Yes, Westbrook had a big game, but not many guys can match up with him. At least he was solid offensively judging by the stats.

Lillard did put up good numbers, but yeah, I was referring to the defensive end of the court where he struggled.

He was really good tonight, but this was the first time I've seen him since last season at Weber...

Switched to Cavs/Bucks and Irving is putting on a show down the stretch....

HOLY SH*T, Jennings just hit a shot at the buzzer to win it for Milwaukee... .7 to go, he nailed it

Ah, I missed it.

Lillard looked good against the Lakers too, but of course PG's should be productive against the old Laker guards.

Check out the highlights somewhere. Brilliant guard play in the last 90 seconds.

Lillard is the only player besides Oscar to have at least 20 points and 7 assists in his first 3 games.
