1. You really think he can make more money as a star (probably) on a lottery team (Houston) than a KEY contributor on a championship team for many years (OKC)?
2. I was under impression players want to be on contenders even if it means less money?
3. Am I missing something or did I miss Harden "disappearing" when it counted (in the finals)?
4. Hungry K Mart with less pressure to be the man (because of Westbrook & Durant) will be deadly. So, he is not a great defender - that's why you have Perkins & Ibaka. Also, K Mart in contract year. Could be interesting.
All in all IMHO incredible deal for OKC (and good for us I suppose -much less competition for Gay).
