    He also played a role in Kawhi leaving. Not so smart.

    Can someone put this in baseball terms? How big a deal? Is Harden even good anymore? He looks fat now.

    IDK who is someone who puts up monster regular season numbers and disappoints in the post season?

    I mean Harden is coming off 3 straight season leading the league in scoring won the MVP in 17/18 and has been top 3 each of the past 4 season.

    In baseball terms probably on par with the Mookie Betts trade last year.

    The question is how will 3 ball dominant scorers mix on the same team with only 1 basketball to go around?

    Isn't that always the problem with these "super teams" that rarely work out?

    Super teams have had varying levels of success in the NBA.
    The Nets should be entertaining if nothing else but again 3 ball dominant scores can make for some awkward court time.

    Agree. There are always questions of chemistry, but these guys all like to have the ball in their hands, and they are likely to have some defensive issues. Durant is probably the best of the 3, but also the one most likely to adjust.
