Yes he could have. He certainly had the motor to keep up with the modern players.

It makes me wonder, was his height measured with or without shoes? If it was measured in bare feet, he would have had 1 to 1 1/2 inches added to his height.

He could do everything Draymond Green does, plus much better post player and rebounder.

Harden scores 41 on 14-24 and 7 assists, Rockets shoot almost 46% as a team, and they still lose by 13.

And Steph Curry isn't even Steph Curry again yet.

The pre-season BPI projections of the NBA Finals...





bob
MY NOTE:  I see the numbers are cut off, so here they are:

GSW vs Celtics = 25.1%
GSW vs Cavaliers = 17.0%
GSW vs Raptors = 6.5%

This projection was made when everybody thought we were going all year and into the playoffs with Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving.  But yeah, Brad Stevens doesn't deserve a single COY vote.  Right...

As I've mentioned before and like many others, I rarely watch other teams play. I watched last nights GS game and really enjoyed it. My aren't the Warriors an awesome team? I can't wait to watch us destroy them in the Finals.

As the above graph shows, from the beginning the Celtics were favored to play in the Finals. Not many here agreed with me last spring and summer that the C's would be the team to beat. Almost no one agreed when Hayward went down five minutes into the season. Kyrie's last game was on my birthday but it didn't bring me down. I have always thot the Celtics good enuf to play for a championship this season. I wasn't the only one saying that the C's had a legit chance for #18. But there weren't many of us. There are more today. What this team has accomplished and the way they did so is the stuff of legends.

but before the Warriors there is unfinished business.

time to take care of business

WCF finally had a great game, Harden with a huge first half and great overall game by Chris Paul. Durant came up small, he doesn’t have strength to post down low consistently and can be crowded on perimeter, limiting his ball handling and shot creation.

No Iggy and Thompson hurting his knee and they still only lost by 2. If those2 players come back healthy my money is still on GSW. If not...?

Chris Paul was not right either, gutted it out on a bad foot, he really came thru. Rockets survived a 12-2 run at beginning of game and a patented 18-1 GS run in 3rd. Harden’s shot was off whole 2nd half and he made key plays in other areas, gutty win for Rockets

Defense taking over, both teams grinding on D and missing a ton of shots. GS only has 26 points with 7 minutes left in 2nd quarter....we can take either one of these teams right now, our D is better.

But they can go on a run much more easily than us.  They score in bunches, LOTS of weapons, while we score in fits and spurts.

Looked like Houston was going to run away with it, the only Dub who showed up was KD, yet it is tied at the half.

Agreed bob, Barkley ripping game as he didn’t think it would be this bad....we can definitely play with either team, they both look spent.

Force Harden to his right. He is MUCH less confident and effective going right. He can be seriously degraded if he cannot go left.

Glad to see the refs suck in the other series too except that means they ALL suck and when we advance we won't see an upgrade in reffing.

Durant must be doing something not right, Draymond Green in his teammates face shouting at him.... I think to do more

Warriors have a tendency to very often get very sloppy with the ball, this plays into our teams strength....

Durant didn’t do squat that whole 4th, that’s 2 games in a row a guy with a height advantage and silky shooting ability sucked in 4th. He’s a multiple all star and certain HoFer, but he should never be included in any GOAT conversation!!!
