Don’t worry about the whole two “ball dominant” guards wrinkle; Harden just proved he’s no alpha for like the twentieth time. CP3 will either Jedi Mind Trick or just flat out bully The Beard into doing what he wants. (That is, unless, Harden would actually welcome the chance to be the number two with open arms, since even he couldn’t possibly have avoided the stench of his abysmal Round 2 no-show against the Spurs. Do not rule this out.)

The real issue will be how to get those two enough help to really compete in the same conference as the Warriors with each of them tying up SO MUCH of the newly lowered salary cap between them. (Hint: They won’t. All that just happened here is the Rockets made a move on the Spurs for the race for second place. Nothing more.)
