23-year old shooting guard James Harden is a star that the Rockets can build around and they have not had one of them in a long time. Harden played in 78 games (all starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 38.3 minutes, 25.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Harden has now played in 298 games (85 starts) in his first four years in the NBA and he is averaging 29.7 minutes, 16.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game. The Rockets rescued Harden, as he would have never gotten the chance to be the kind of player he is right now if he still played with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
