Episode details

Salman Ali (@SalmanAliNBA) and  USA Today's Ben DuBose (@BenDuBose) cut through all the James Harden to Houston noise to answer the real question we’ve all been dodging: Do we still believe in James Harden?

Sub-topics include:

  • Is James Harden actually coming to Houston?

  • What would Harden’s role be if he comes to Houston?

  • Would either of us give Harden a four-year max?

  • What would prevent us from giving him a four-year max?

  • Where do fears of a bad 37-year-old James Harden stem from?

  • Are those fears valid? Is he actually declining fast?

  • Can the Rockets manage his minutes long-term?

  • How much do Harden’s playoff performances color those fears?

  • Can Harden still be a major cog for a title contender?
