  • If you could get Harden great, I would not move Ben Simmons.

  • I probably would test the Waters to see what I could get for em, because I bet you would be.

  • Well, here's the deal.

  • Here's the deal.

  • Ben Simmons and what he would do for somebody like a James Harden.

  • Assuming James Harden was willing to move without the basketball, as opposed to having the ball in his hands, is something that's open for discussion.

  • And it's an interesting conversation.

  • It ain't gonna win you the chip.

  • That's the bottom line.

  • When you talk about heart and with a big man, the quality of a Joelle and be the healthy Joel and be you talking Chip ATTN.

  • Least getting to the Finals.

  • This is what we're talking about here.

  • I'm tired of people not appreciating the greatness of James Harden.

  • It ain't just one on one basketball, his ability to get to the free throw line.

  • They draw fouls to dance on you, to create his own shot to hit from three the mid range shots to finish at the basket.

  • This brother is a magician on the offensive side of the ball.

  • He's an absolute scoring machine okay if you give him guys around him, especially somebody like and be that could ball, especially some defenders.

  • Excuse me?

  • It works.

  • Now, remember Ben Simmons.

  • New contract starts this coming season.

  • He's gonna be making 29 million this season.

  • Goes up to 31 33 beyond.

  • Hard is at 38 million.

  • If you're the Houston Rockets.

  • Yes, you don't want Russell Westbrook with Ben Simmons because But I got news for you.

  • I don't give a damn how much Ben Simmons practice.

  • I don't give a damn how much he improved.

  • You'll never be able to shoot like James Harden.

  • That's not his thing.

  • You can't go from not shooting at all, not even trying to attempt threes.

  • Toby in a kind of shooter that James Harden isn't a kind of score, that is, That's number one.

  • So paying him with Russell Westbrook would be problematic for the Houston Rockets.

  • But since the Houston Rockets going home in the second round anyway, and you got James Harden making 38 then 41,000,044 million and so on and so forth.

  • If you are Tilman Fertitta and this and this new GM Raphael Stone.

  • You mean when you look at these guys fantasy or reality?

  • Well, listen to me.

  • It's a fantasy, but it could be reality because it's Daryl Morey.

  • We're talking about here.

  • Down Get attached.

  • That certain player that's right and James Harden would Would would not dismissed that because of Darrell Moore.

  • Not to mention Daryl Morey and Doctor Who You talk about me like I e people who underrate James Harden.

  • James Harden's won the M v P.

  • He's coming second three times.

  • He's coming third once it's five.

  • You know what?

  • This is what I think people appreciate.

  • I'm not talking about you, but I'm What I'm saying is there are people who look at him and say how he scores and the fact that he needs to dribble so much and he gets.

  • He engages an isolation play that you'll never win the championship with him.

  • I don't agree with that.

  • I think that if you got the right coaching, you got the right system.

  • You got a couple of the right players around him.

  • I definitely think that James Harden e.

  • I agree.

  • I think a scoring machine, much like I get on Carson Wentz, although Harden playing at a much higher level.

  • I get on Harden in the playoffs because he's one of the best whoever did it and that, in fact, had he played bigger in Game seven against Golden State.

  • You know, I'm on the record.

  • I think they would have won the championship that season.

  • Eso You can do it more.

  • He may very well feel the way you're talking about it.

  • But if he can't acquire Harden, he has a great foundation toe work with.

  • He has two young.

  • If they're not superstars, they're the next things to it.

  • There in their prime, they they can play together very well.

  • Either one would fetch enormous return.

  • It comes down to the 70 Sixers.

  • Are you trying to win the chip or you trying to be competitive?

  • You're gonna be competitive.

  • You're gonna compete.

  • You're trying to win the chip standing Pat ain't gonna cut it.

  • What's good now?

  • Ben Simmons doesn't shoot.

  • It's gonna be interesting to me is to see if Maury is willing to give up assets in order to move Tobias Harris and or Al Horford's contracts.

  • Because once you can get those guys off the books.

  • You also have more flexibility in terms of the team you can have.

  • And I'll bet that Horford, in a different situation, might look a lot better than he does right now.

  • Both those teams need to get it.

  • If we want to go to Fantasy Island, keep and beat and Ben Simmons find a way to get James Harden to join them and you win the chip, You win the chip, but you're going to give you win the chip, okay?

  • We don't with you.

  • I don't think you can pull that off.

  • You got to give up somebody.

  • And if you're Houston, you could get younger and a little bit.

  • But, hey, we'll give you Sybil.

  • And three years from now, you could have a second round draft.

If you could get Harden great, I would not move Ben Simmons.
