Thunderfan86 has an OK reputation so far
Default James Harden admits money was the deciding factor in leaving OKC

Is anyone surprised?

Well, anyone shouldn't be.

He probably would have gave in if they didn't give him those few extra mils. Glad they did though.
because they are much better without him. they even were last season untill westbrick broke down.
why would they want to keep an ultra ball dominant player with negative defense that gives SGs career highs all the time?? they already have two ball dominant top 5 players and a great 3rd option

He wasn't worth the max on a team that had 2 players better than him and would be better off with a 3 and D two guard that would demand 10M less a year.

This logic

How is Harden a "top 10 player" coming off the bench in OKC being the 3rd option to Westbrook and Durant. Also have to account for Ibaka's increased production as well, averaging 15 PPG on 55% this year.

OKC would've won it all last year with Harden. Still one of the worst trades ever to me.

As it should be. No one is gonna care about him if he gets hurt. He's just looking out for number 1. I wouldn't be mad at Aldridge if he took a better offer by another team.

Harden had a bruised left hand in the 12' Finals which nobody wants to talk about. He didn't "choke", he was barely healthy. And when healthy he routinely scores 30 on the Heat.
Bruised hand makes him terrible on defense? k.

Yes, OKC should have assumed he was going to change his demands and then just let him walk without receiving compensation. Sounds like a great business plan.
