What they are saying about the James Harden trade

by Berry Tramel Published: October 28, 2012

LeBron James: “I think we all know that James Harden was a big part of their team. He was a big part of why they made it to the Finals. They got a couple pieces back that are really good as well. But we don't know how it changes their team until they actually get out there.”

Eric Pincus, Los Angeles Times: “The move will probably benefit the Lakers should the two meet again in the postseason … the Thunder are still a major threat. Martin can also shoot and get to the line, but he's not close to Harden as a defender or playmaker. In the short term, it would appear the Thunder have taken a step backward. If the Lakers can come together and stay healthy, the road through the Western Conference might have gotten slightly easier.”
