BJ Armstrong and Eric Newman examine the four team James Harden trade from multiple angles. Can Harden, Kevin Durant, & Kyrie Irving play together? With the Nets trading away all of their depth, what is the identity of the team? Has Brooklyn mortgaged its future with this move? Are they now the clear favorite to win the east? In spite of their offensive firepower, can the Nets play enough defense to be a championship team? Is all of this change too much for rookie head coach Steve Nash to process without sufficient practice time? As for Harden's old team in Houston, they add "free agent to be" Victor Oladipo and a bushel of draft picks plus Dante Exum & Rodions Kurucs, so what is the Rockets' upside? As the "under the radar" team in this four team deal, Indiana adds Caris LeVert, who could explode into superstardom with the Pacers.
