Loving & hating James Harden at the same damn time

Kevin Martin, James Harden and small sample sizes

+

Kevin Martin has played in eight games for the Oklahoma City Thunder this season. Has he sufficiently replaced James Harden thus far? So far, OKC's newest 6th-man is fitting in quite nicely.

The Mailbag Of Ed: Will OKC be OK?

The Oklahoma City Thunder are 3-2 and fans don't know whether to panic or to breathe easier. Moreover, one of their favorite former players is leading the league in scoring. Yep, all is well in...

The Hangover: OKC drops 2 of 3, time to worry?

+

The Oklahoma City Thunder have lost two of their first three games. Is it time to worry yet? Probably not. But, is the sense of urgency there for the defending Western Conference champions?
