37. "Really unfortunate to run into the Warriors dynasty." In response to In response to 32
Absolutely think they make the Finals at least once if that doesn't come together the way it does, and then this isn't happening. He's probably one of the three winningest GMs of the decade, too.
I'm not defending him, because they had a ripe opportunity this year with the Warriors out of the way, and they couldn't even get to the WCF, so the wheels were falling off with this current regime. Harden's turning 32-- they went all in to try to beat Golden State the last few years, but they couldn't get it done, and it's time to start fresh. I get it.
But he's gonna get a new job ASAP. Whatever you think of him as a GM or as a guy, they had a 60+% win percentage like eight or nine of the seasons during his tenure-- through different coaching tenures at that. A GM whose franchise wins at that high a rate for a decade is gonna be re-hired immediately.
