Thumbs up James Harden

Heres a nice video interview with James Harden in pre Draft preperations plus a nice write up. Pretty impressive... Lost 10-15LBS.

I can't believe he is 6'5 and has a 6'11'' wing span?? Sick shit!!

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

Let the whoring begin!

He said the magic word when he described himself as versatile.

yeah, i disagree Doc. He's less of a risk than any of the guards projected to go after him.

Maybe so and I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong (i.e. see LaMarus Aldridge), but I watched a handful of his games this past season (about 7 or 8) and he didn't impress me in the slightest and didn't have outstanding games games either.

Anyhow, don't really care just as long as Colangelo doesn't draft him.

oh yeah, i don't really think he's an outstanding pick at 3 or 4 but given the lack of quality he is probably the best two in the draft. DeRozan, Curry, Evans, henderson, even williams who i have a giant man crush on- none of those guys are any more impressive imo.

We end up with the third pick, my guess is BC takes him or trades back a few spots to get him. That's the only scenario where i can envision him ending up in TO.

Harden isn't that bad but he's not a top 3 talent
he can thank a weak draft, he might be the next Roy type player
I think Evans will have a better carrer, maybe even DeRozan

Comparing him to Brandon Roy is an insult if you ask me. For a SG he's slow as molasses and if they have to play him at SF he'll be undersized. He's a bench player (6th man) at best in my opinion.

a scout described him as like B Roy, I just wrote what he said
said he's sneaky athletic like Roy

and Harden is quicker than he was in college
he lost weight and worked on his footwork

I still don't believe it, but am willing to eat crow if I'm wrong. Which I've been known to be from time to time.

We don't know that he lost weight. Chad Ford says that he looks like he lost 10-15 pounds. It could have just been because he was wearing vertical stripes. Honestly - did I miss the empirical evidence?
