James Harden is better than Tracy McGrady was and it’s not particularly close

James Harden is better than Tracy McGrady was and it’s not particularly close

Photo by Tim Warner/ Both guys are/were great, but one is clearly better. The latest NBA Twitter debate is Houston Rockets-related, and it’s pitting two franchise greats against one another in James Harden versus Tracy McGrady. But a simple look at the careers of both players show that this shouldn’t even really be a debate. Harden is the better player, and it’s not particularly close. I’ve been a Rockets fan since 1986. I’ve watched the careers of both very closely, and there’s simply no argument to made for McGrady. None. Zilch. Now you may like T-Mac better, and that’s...

Harden with 37; Rockets end skid in 117-111 win over 'Wolves

HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden had 37 points and the Houston Rockets snapped a four-game skid with a 117-111 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night. The Rockets trailed for much of the early part of this game but used a big run in the third quarter to take the lead and hold on for the win. It was a much-needed victory for a team which called a blowout loss to Orlando on Sunday night “rock bottom.” Their losing streak, which matched a season-high, came after they won six in a row and dropped them to sixth in the Western Conference with the playoffs fast approaching. Harden...

“Rock bottom” begins and ends with James Harden

Photo by Tim Warner/ The Rockets believe they have hit rock bottom, but that’s because their biggest star has too. The Houston Rockets are on their worst skid of the season. Before the All-Star break, Houston won a momentous game against the Boston Celtics on Feb. 11 and then returned from the NBA holiday to reel off five-straight wins — one of their best stretches of the season and a strong sign for future of their small-ball experiment. But now the team finds themselves in turmoil, having dropped four games in a row, including losses against the lowly New York Knicks, Charlotte...

Photo by David Sherman/NBAE via It’s getting harder and harder to write previews for a Houston Rockets team that doesn’t seem to care that they have a basketball game to play. I was tempted to write this preview with the same intensity with which Houston has been playing, but we have a 150 word minimum. Since the turn of the calendar to 2020, James Harden has been a different player. This new version of Bizarro Harden doesn’t resemble the MVP that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing during the Mike D’Antoni years. Russell Westbrook can carry some of that load created by...
