    Yeahhh Harden is pretty much a goat level player if you can’t scheme against him.

    He just had a dominant defensive series too. Insane.

    Can’t wait for the Bucks series though. Should be a challenge with all the size and rim protection.

    Yep, not much you can do there specially with a thin lineup.

    BKN is 17-19 GSW all over again. Less defense, but GOAT offense. They'll cruise to the title. And it will be as fulfilling as those 2 titles were for GS.

    Harden has reached a level of performance over the last few years that legitimately makes me question who is better: him or KD.

    The argument for KD is his size. It allows him to be more of a defensive influence on a game. It also gives him more offensive versatility, and arguably makes him more of a mismatch.

    The argument for Harden is his floor generalship. He's like LeBron in this sense -- his ability to get others involved. He's, in my opinion, more suited towards being a floor raiser out of the two. Definitely not a controversial statement. Most would agree.

    KD historically was more of an offensive mismatch, but I'm not sure that's the case anymore. Harden is on his level, along with Curry. The Houston-Lakers series last year really confirmed that for me.

    One thing I'm not sure on, is offensive diversity. Who's more unstoppable from all areas and plays on the court? I know KD is a midrange god... but what about Harden? I'll have to mull over the stats.

    Harden's literally been facing teams in the playoffs loading their entire defense with the SINGLE PURPOSE of stopping his every single move.

    Now that he actually has legit talent around him, it's just a wrap.

    It’s easy to be efficient when you literally play with two other mvp caliber players.

    Congratulations Brooklyn. Thanks for taking out our hated rivals, the Celtics. This ensures that they won't be getting to 18 this season.

    Hopefully Danny Ainge is one of those pieces
