Usually if I'm talking about someone in their 3rd year as a professional and calling them the best ever at something it's probably a joke. Not in this case though. I seriously think this guy should come off the bench for the rest of his career. He still gets great minutes and puts up big points. No reason for him to ever change from the 6th man role. And honestly who else could you name as the best 6th man ever?? Nobody.
This dagger last night basically won the game for the Thunder and put them into the NBA Finals. The Spurs look old now and I can't see them putting up a fight back in OKC for game 6. The way things are looking in the East finals we don't even know who the Thunder will be playing. Either team that comes out of the East will have their hands full though. Harden, Durant, and Westbrook should have their hands on an NBA title in about two weeks. Video of Hardens dagger from last night is below.

The Thunder will not be able to pay Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, AND James Harden when both Ibaka and Harden'...

“Harden-mania” is running wild in Oklahoma City.
In the business world you have to go above and beyond to set your company apart from the rest, and what better way to separate yourself from the competition than by adorning the building where your business is located with a ginormous beard and mohawk to honor James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard, 2011-12 Kia NBA...
Most of the best professional athletes are recognized for their skills and talent by receiving awards and trophies. And others get, well, giant pictures of their facial hair put on buildings. Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard James Harden is well known for his great shooting ability and being the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year. But perhaps what he is better known for is his beard...
San Antonio Spurs fans show their team pride in many ways. Whether it be decorating their front yards with Spurs paraphernalia, downtown skyscrapers adorned with Spurs signs or hotels along San Antonio's famed Riverwalk leaving room lights to spell out the team chant of "Go Spurs Go."

It seems like everywhere I turn, whether it's on Twitter, or other national sites like Johnny Ludden's column regarding the Spurs-Thunder series, the general consensus is that the Thunder won't be able to keep James Harden and Serge Ibaka.
