Most teams we’ve spoken to in Chicago are indicating that they believe Oklahoma City is indeed leaning towards picking Harden. They also believe the Thunder are not enamored with Rubio at all, as they are committed to developing Russell Westbrook at his natural position—point guard.
I dont think Russell Westbrook will ever be a good NBA PG in context, but he can be a solid player with James Harden in the backcourt capable of handling the ball as well.
Does anybody else believe Harden is a left handed Brandon Roy?
Thats been the consensus comparison about Harden so far, extremely polished high IQ player btw.
