James Harden wants to improve defense and become starter
 
The Oklahoman reports:

Holding him back has been the defensive side of the ball, where Thabo Sefolosha excels and Harden still is honing in on what it takes to be a two-way player. In the Thunder's 87-82 win over Boston on Monday, Harden displayed how much more of a pest he's become. Albeit against an overmatched but scrappy Celtics squad, Harden provided the game-clinching block on Jaycee Carroll, the end of an impressive defensive sequence that became a staple in the Thunder's come-from-behind win.

"It needs to improve every single day," Harden said of his defense. "I need to show them that I can really get after it and that I improved over the past year and into this summer. That's the key. Our whole motive is defense."

I hope JH can become the starter. He was a decent defender in college.

JH13 has been the starting SG in preseason.

He looked pretty good on D in the Heat preseason game. Hope it continues into the regular season.

If he really plays well and does become a good defender then he should become a starter at some point during the season. For now however, just leave the starters the same as last year and don't screw up the chemistry we had last year. I don't think Thabo cares very much if he comes off the bench though.
