2. You are vastly underrating Harden. He's a top 5 SG in the league right now.
3. If being scared is what is keeping them from making moves that take the team in the right direction then the entire front office should be fired.
Like I said, if it doesn't really spell championship, what's the point? To be an entertaining second round team? Harden is not the only great player out there, regardless of if OKC was dangling him in front of the Wizards. A second round team is better than what they are now, but it's also reminiscent of what they were with Arenas/Butler/Jamison. Color me frugal, idk.
