The one thing harden has to watch out for is his stiff arming is way through the lane.

He is VERY obvious with that sometimes...if the refs start catching him on it.

He uses his arms a LOT to create room.

I am an OKC fan.

I openly stated that the Harden trade was horrible at the time.

It's even more horrible now.

Any of my fellow fans trying to defend the trade are blind homers.

Quality wise, I wouldn't say it's the worst trade in NBA history, but it's definitely top 10.

When you consider the implications it had (OKC goes from potential dynasty with 4 superstars hitting their prime together to Durant possibly leaving OKC next season with zero rings)... I would say that it's the worst trade of all time.

Harden stays in OKC and Durant would have at least 3 rings before 30. We would be talking about him being a potential top 10 player of all time. His legacy was forever changed the day that Harden was traded.

The thing some people don't consider is there was a very good chance Harden would want out by now, even if he did re-sign with OKC. He wanted the big $ contract and he wanted to be THE guy on the team. He wasn't going to get either from hanging around OKC where he was behind Durant and Westbrook.

There's only one ball to go around. He was bound to leave regardless.

And to think T-Mac didn't stick around to form that 1-2 punch with Carter...not even a third wheel scenario.

Every trade involving an all-star and up caliber player will always be a gamble because they're trading proven players for picks and prospects.

Only Celtic/Rondo fans think otherwise, thinking Rondo is only tradeable if they get another big name player back. And look at how the Rondo trade turn out, a bunch of bench players and 2nd rounders.

But the Thunder got one of the worst starting C's in the NBA in the deal? And it opened up playing time for D-Leaguers like Perry Jones and Jeremy Lamb .

Don't forget the great Reggie Jackson lol.

Another underrated stupid move was letting Jeff Green go. I hated playing OKC because even if by miracle the other big 3 didn't play well Jeff Green would pick up the slack. They had a big 4. Kendrick Perkins has always been trash.
