Can you believe Scott Brooks had James coming off the bench over Thabo Sefolosha

Especially if they had a rim protector and mid range specialist like Serge Ibaka. That team would be off the chain.

Could you imagine if he had beat them if any of them were in their prime?

They'd be impossible to beat in the finals.

Couldn't be done!

LeBron would find a way.

Harden wouldn't show up, Westbrook would try to draw a foul from 3 and end up turning over the ball, and Durant would play passive.

He'd collude with enough stars to do it.

Sure...the defense would not be good, they wouldn't be able to play their optimal styles, there would be constant controversy about who should have the ball late in games, and...most importantly...due to the salary cap situation and owners...the rest of the team would be terrible.

They'd lose to the Warriors, Spurs, or Cavs...

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree DMAVs

It was clearly working, and only going to get better with time

Harden and Durant are both fantastic shooters, specifically off the ball

We don't see that aspect of Harden's game in Houston, but the number show he is a very good catch and shoot player

The Westbrook-Durant-Harden 3 man lineup was very good in 2012. Imagine how much better it would be now, given not only have all players gotten better.. They've all become dramatically better facilitators (Check assist total improvements)

This isn't that same young Westbrook that danced between 5-7 assists.. This is the Westbrook that gets double digit assists nightly

Same for Harden

These guys make the right pass

Agreed. Had they been able to keep the team together, they would of ruled the west for a long time.
