Kyrie decided that Harden should play point. Do you think this can fix the team's woes?

No, I don't that the teams woes right now are not have nothing to do with the offensive end of the floor there. They've been the worst defensive team in the NBA since Harden since Harden arrived. And you know, the the offense wasn't an issue prior to the trade. And that's why I was kind of against the Nets doing this, especially when they had to surrender a really good young defense of center in Jared Allen. You know, they've gotten better offensively with Harden, but they didn't need to get better. They were already one of the best offensive teams in the league. At this point, the main concern is the defense, and Harden has been a notoriously poor defender throughout his career. And the Nets, they they've got to do something with this roster. Thio improve on that side of the ball because if you're trying to win an NBA championship, you can't be, you know, one of the worst teams on the defensive end of the floor. Yeah, I mean, I'm looking at their stat right now in the 25th. This is inclusive of pre hardened post harden, but I mean there, certainly in the very, very bottom of the league in terms of worst defense is. And what do you think? Like I didn't hear much about why they wanted to make this change. Do you have any insight of why, like Kyrie kind of asked Harding to take over the point responsibilities? I don't have any inside Intel, but I guess you know dating back toe hardens days with Houston. He's always been an incredibly ball dominant player. That's where he's most comfortable, you know, in his in his role. So, you know, I think Kyrie just trying to make him feel as comfortable as possible. And and you know, Kyrie and Durand are both solid and probably better off ballplayers. They're they're more willing to move off the ball. You know, set screens come off pin downs, whereas heart has always been very stationary off the basketball. So yeah, I think it's it will help them a little bit as much, you know, as as much as the offense can improve, it's already pretty great. But, you know, I think it is just ah, selfless move there from from Chi Rate. What do you think of like? What do you think of instead of playing around with who's playing point. And you mean you could just let this be really flexible, right? It's like, Okay, whoever is closest to the inbound or, you know, like, just kind of let either of those sort of dominate the point and just, like, let them share the responsibilities as they kind of move into a transition on the offense. But how do you think about that? As compared Thio, like playing around with the rotations, like part of my mind, one wonders of like, Hey, would it be really powerful toe? Have one of these three sort of be the leader of the second team unit. And so now you have this situation where you literally the entire every minute, the entire game. You always have a top notch score, always on the court, but one that kind of jelled with that. Like, what do you think of playing around that? As opposed to trying to play around with these roles? Of those three? Does that make sense? No. Yeah, absolutely. I I do think that, you know that's one of the benefits of having three superstars is you can you know you can mix and match. You can make sure that one or even two are on the floor for for most of the minutes over the course of a ballgame. And, yeah, I think Harden is a guy, you know. His his biggest strength and in my mind is an MBA player is as a floor razor on offense. You know, you can put four below average offensive players with James Harden, and he can. He can make that offense pretty decent. So, yeah, I think he should be the guy that maybe runs those second units. You can keep Kyrie and Durant's minutes more aligned and and that could be good and the other the other benefit. Obviously, toe having three superstars is if one of those guys gets hurt, you can. You know you still have a chance to compete. Thio potentially win the East and compete for the MBA finals or I'm hit next
