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.
I'm not talking about how good they are as a team. They're not that good (although they're better than I thought they'd be simply by virtue of Harden's greatness this year). I'm talking about Harden being an exceptional offensive player. The pieces around him...not so good at all at the moment.
