There aren’t many players as talented at their position as James Harden is, right?
Just a few days ago, a deal went down that made some Oklahoma City Thunder fans a bit concerned and cringe a little, and that was the resigning of power forward Serge Ibaka to a 4-year,48 million dollar contract extension. Now the Oklahoma City Thunder have to be careful about the way they go around using their money.
Now we all know, Serge Ibaka is a phenomenal player at his position and racked up some pretty good numbers last season, averaging 9.1 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game, and 3.7 blocks per game, and I still think he can improve and get much better from here on out, especially since he’s only 22 years old.
As I said before, wouldn’t you say that there aren’t many NBA players as talented at their position as James Harden is?
James Harden is an extremely exciting player to watch. Last season, Harden averaged16.8 points per game and 3.7 assists per game and when you look around the league, I don’t see several shooting guards that are as that impressive, oh and by the way, he’s only sitting at 22 years of age. James is a guy that you can almost always count on and has a very bright future ahead of him. He gives you quick buckets off the bench and is a pretty good defender as well. The Thunder would not want to lose a player of his caliber. James Harden brings more to a team then scoring in double-digits. He brings hard work, determination, and heart. The Thunder cannot afford to lose James Harden, who is one of the main pieces to this squad, and if they lose this all-star, than they are making a huge mistake. They will be making their team much worse, hurting the franchise,and hurting themselves, especially in the long run.
The Thunder are a team with extremely young players with many more great seasons to come.If you look from top to bottom at their roster, the average age of their team is only 24 years old. With players that include Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder are a huge threat in the west, but to become even better and to win a championship, they need one of their key pieces, James Harden. This is a team with an extremely bright future, and one day could possibly turn into a dynasty. The Oklahoma City Thunder are a very young team with lots of youth, talent, and potential. The Thunder need to re-sign James Harden to a long-term extension immediately for this team to keep getting better, every step of the way.
