This is such fault logic imo. In those talk shows like First Take and all that they use it too. Curry's team had and has the most talent by far in the NBA. Like Aussie says the Warriors are going to feel his abscense less because of their talent than the Rockets would if Harden couldn't play. That makes Harden more VALUABLE to his team than it does Curry to his team, doesn't it?
The Spurs and Miami only won three games less. Did that made the Suns so high favourites? I think Golden State has proven you can win a Championship as a jumpshooting team, something the Suns/D'Antoni got blamed for, if your defense is on par with your offense . Other than the fact they also play teams who have more talent than them. Especially this season with Golden State.
