James Harden Fails To Be Selected to An All-NBA Team


[sportspress_tv uuid=”13ay1ml17yvpm1095pcsfjdgqx” size=”large”]
After being named to the previous all-nba first team, numerous second and third teams, finishing second in the 2015 kia MVP race, and a year removed from the western conference finals, James Harden fails to rack up on enough votes to be named to an all-nba team. Despite Harden being one of the premier players in today’s nba, his Houston Rockets barely made the playoffs, finishing 8th in the Western Conference playoff standings and eventually losing in the first round to a Curryless Golden State Warriors team.

The Rockets by far are one of the most disappointing franchises of the 2015-2016 NBA season. Their roster basically has not changed from a year ago. Some say they should have even been better with the edition of Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson last summer. Lawson only averaged around a career low 8 points and 3 assists and sooner than expected was shown the door. Some say it’s effort, other’s blame Dwight Howard (who’s most likely going to be in a different uniform at the start of next season), many people even blame the over dribbling of James Harden, running shot clocks down and taking too many shots. But surely Kevin McHale can no longer be the blame, after being fired only 12 games into the season. This offseason should be interesting. It’s going to take a change of scenery and lots of soul searching if the Rockets plan to upgrade and not be left in the bottom pack. It’s early but teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trailblazers, and the Utah Jazz are expected to be some of the top young teams in the West. Now of course all-nba selections aren’t the world, but at some point the weight of the blame for a team being so trash after a successful season has to fall on the shoulders of the “main guy”, the guy who makes the in game decisions, and takes the most shots.
