Lin and Parson's efficiency may not be very good, but please don't list them with Harden like that or even make the suggestion that Harden has "terrible numbers." If he has bad offensive numbers, so does the entire league outside of LeBron and Durant.
but like someone said, they gave up four guys that makeup Harden's win share and overpaid for Lin and Asik on offer sheet matches so the other teams couldnt out bid Houston.
so they are in the EXACT same position seed wise as they were last year, just with different players. If you are going by the win share stat, and its very accurate because they are hovering around the 7th or 8th seed.
