We’re currently a .500 team with Brown, albeit without Kemba. What are we if we trade Brown for Harden? Does anybody really see us losing to the Pistons tonight if Harden is playing instead of Brown?
Harden’s PIPM is just shy of 7 compared to Brown’s 0.7. Harden is averaging 37.0 PPG, the best in the league, and averaging 11.0 APG, only behind Jokic and Westbrook. Harden is also averaging 5.0 three pointers per game. Averaging a double-double with over a 3:1 ratio on points to assists? Incredible. And he’s just getting started. Imagine his best teammate going from C. Wood to Tatum. Good lord, the sparks will fly...
This is a no-brainer, folks. Harden gives us a shot at a championship THIS year and next. Without Harden, we’re possibly a borderline playoff team. Why again would we not make this move?
I don’t like Harden, but I like championship runs more than I dislike Harden.
