So your telling me those 3 early blowouts and the most recent Ls is McHale and McHale alone? I find that hard to believe. Harden, while arguably being my favorite player in the league has been on and off on both ends of the floor. Lawson is still adjusting to a new squad, Dwight has been in and out of the line-up with injuries...there's been inconsistency with your squad and I just don't believe its just a "McHale is bad" issue but you watch them more than me so I can't prove you wrong completely.
no loss or win is ever on any coach alone. these blowouts and lack of effort are all symptoms of a bad system. guys give up because there is no counter to basic things people do to counter our core offense. stagnant PNR.
Harden's ups and downs? Symptom of a volatile system where everyone is reliant on him to isolate and score. Guys think Harden is Jordan out here . He's not even in KD's tier.
Harden has talents that fit well into an actual system with play calls. He can score on ball, off ball, and is a very underrated passer. The inconsistencies are a cascade of a bad system and bad coaching tendencies.
