Yes, and he doesn’t even settle for jump shots now.

4th straight game that Harden hasn't scored 20. Longest streak since he came off the bench in OKC...

The shape he's come into this season...

Yeah but Harden didn't exactly try to do anything to make it better by coming into this season intentionally out of shape.

I’ve always wondered how NBA players can struggle with weight when they spend so much of their time exercising. Like how much can you possibly eat?

I’m honestly not sure if we are this good, or if Houston with Fat Harden is this bad. I’m guessing both. That was some ugly ass basketball. Lakers knew they had it in hand the entire game and played like it, just clowning on the Rockets. This game was in garbage time after six minutes. Harden genuinely looks like he either doesn’t give a (bleep), or he’s too fat/out of shape to look like he gives a (bleep).

James Harden before the 2 Laker games.

"As long as we continue to find chemistry, we have a chance to do something special.”


Lakers really went into the Rockets house, put their feet up on their couch and set the house on fire on their way out.

Ever since Harden became a Rocket in 2012 he pretty much destroyed our Lakers every single time.
As it was around the time Kobe hurt his achilles and Dwight leaving us to join Houston.
An let’s not forget Dreamshake making sure to remind us by logging onto LG.net after every beatdown we suffered to the Rockets.

Feels pretty dang good to slam that final nail in the coffin to the Harden era in Houston

Lebron and AD with no mercy and always saving their receipts.
Fwiw it is tax season

Yeah, combination of both I think. The Rockets had just beaten the Magic by 42 points in the game before playing us.

I think it was more so AD with his defense message after losing to the Spurs and barely beating the Bulls. He suddenly looked fully engaged and every bit the AD we all saw dominate any and every team he faced in the Bubble. The rest of the teams effort clearly went up a bit as well. This team is scary af when they're actually playing serious defense and it doesn't matter who the opponent is since there offense is drastically improved this season.

I like to think that we ended the James Harden era in Houston, both with last year’s gentleman’s sweep and then back to back beatdowns in Harden’s final two games as a Rocket.

Nice not to have to watch that annoying brand of basketball. Don’t think Harden on the nets will look like Harden on the rockets.
