    Default Would Houston have beaten the Warriors last 5 years

    If you replace Harden with Kawhi?

    Just wondering because I keep hearing how Harden is just a regular season player unlike BITW Kawhi Leonard, who carries teams all by himself.

    Not if Kawhi has to carry the Rockets for 80 regular season games

    He has already declined enough on D as it is, under 'Antoni he would probably score 30+ but give up 25+ every night.

    Yes definitely. The rockets almost beat the warriors in 18. You replace harden with kawhi and it's a win. Harden scored 28 points on 41% fg and under 30% 3pt. Kawhi would of done better than that plus he would of been way better defensively. He also would of Gave them a good chance in 2016 and 15. In 15 he definitely could of beat the warriors and then went on to defeat a injured Cavs squad. Not sure about 16. I still think he could of beat the warriors but I don't think he would of been able to beat LeBron with Kyrie and love.
