Not necessarily. You can't say for sure how things would have gone had they kept Harden. He had a different role then he does in Houston. I'm amused when people say that it will show in the playoffs because Harden would handle the ball late in games. I'd like to know what games they were watching because Brooks rarely went with Harden the last 6 minutes of the game. I know this because I wanted him to do it. There were a few instances but mainly Westbrook and Durant handled the ball and Harden mostly disappeared like Martin does now. I've always had a problem with the isolation mindset they have at the end of games. Keep moving the ball is always best IMO.
