James Harden winning MVP would confirm the award is a joke
The Rockets are headed home after dropping Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals to the Warriors, and MVP favorite James Harden was unable to get it done for the second game in a row without running mate Chris Paul. Colin thinks it’s obvious at this point that Harden is a regular season star that shrinks in the postseason, and thinks anyone that can argue with a straight face that Harden is more valuable to his team than LeBron is to the Cavs is beyond help.
If Harden wins the MVP it will prove, again, how irrelevant and meaningless the award really is.
These Warriors aren’t on Jordan’s Bulls level as a dynasty
The Warriors beat the Rockets to advance to their fourth straight Finals, where they’ll be favored to win their third title in four years. Even as heavy favorites to win another ring, Colin thought the Rockets were the better team in the Western Conference Finals and only lost the series because they lost Chris Paul to injury. For most of the series, the Warriors were pushed all over the court and looked atrocious late in the fourth quarter in two close losses.
The Warriors are the greatest collection of offensive stars ever assembled on one team, but they lack the nastiness of Jordan’s Bulls teams. Even if they win another title, Colin won’t place them above Jordan’s Bulls in the dynasty hierarchy.
