Beard def has a no-show history, but comp’ing him to any stage of LBJ’s career seems unrealistic…

That’s the answer I used to give every time someone told me that Jordan used to get the same crap from the media until he won the title. “How can you compare LeBron to Jordan?”, I used to say.

Anyway, if Harden submits another MVP calliber season, very few people will take this loss into consideration. Imagine how many story lines will emerge just from now until the finals. This game will be forgotten soon enough.

Like what you read? Give Diego Godinho Rocha a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
