    Kirk is correct… I don’t think many people foresaw what Harden would become in Houston. I drafted him onto my fantasy basketball team before the trade was made, and I remember that after the trade I was really nervous about what would happen with Harden now that he was the lead guy taking the vast majority of the shots.

    The idea of getting Brook Lopez from Brooklyn is definitely an interesting one and I’d love to see it happen, but I just don’t think Brooklyn wants to trade him. I think they’ll do everything possible to jettison Wallace or Joe Johnson before they move Lopez. They might even move Deron Williams before Lopez.
