    Not gonna lie, people only hate Ryan because he speaks the truth and you can see every time he makes a valid point they interrupt him or make some corny joke real fans know…

    For one, stop talking about Harden's defense if you still consider LeBron a top player, because LeBron DOESN'T EVEN TRY. Two, who does Harden have on his team? Old ass CP3? Look at all these other guys teams and they've clearly got more help. The rockets are trash without him, point blank period.

    Hollins has to be the biggest idiot; I can't belive "First Take" had this brain fart on the air. His arguments are baseless – he can't hold Kellerman's jockstrap. Please! Saying Giannis didn't deserve the MVP! Maybe Harden should have gotten it because no one pushes off more with his off forearm to clear space than Harden; no one palms and turns the ball over more either. Harden is an iso, ball hogging player who wilts at crunch time. Harden is bad for the game. It's a team game and Harden is anything but team. Please! Hollins needs to find another line of work – he's absolutely terrible and his arguments are weak. Out!

    Max is bull shit he honestly knows nothing of basketball he said Anthony Davis is a top 3 player in this league when he never evaluated his team to the conference finals barely making the playoffs one time harden is easily the 2 or 3 best player in the league arguably the best he just doesn’t put effort on defense at times the point of the Game is to put the ball in the basket and stop the opposing team from doing so harden offensive game is the deadliest I’ve ever seen he break hearts and confidence the man has literally carried the Houston rockets James harden is the Houston rockets
