James Harden has been on a remarkable form since he has joined the Brooklyn Nets. Forming a super-team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, Harden is probably in the best place to be in to win a championship.

Despite having such a superb roster, the big three really haven’t played many games together. Ever since his trade to the Nets, KD, Kyrie and Harden have played only seven games with each other.

With such a small sample size, it is pretty hard to analyse what this time might look like with all the three players together on the court.

James Harden warns the league about his partnership with Kevin Durant & Kyrie Irving

The Nets welcomed back Kevin Durant back after nearly two months. KD had a flawless return to the game with 17 points and was perfect from the floor, shooting five of his attempted shots. Harden was certainly pleased with his return and even tweeted in support of him.

Brooklyn meanwhile absolutely obliterated the Pelicans beating them 139-111. ‘The Beard‘ was absolutely stoked with the team’s performance and gave the league a gentle reminder that the sky is the limit for the team.

It is shocking to see how good the Brooklyn Nets have been lately. Despite missing superstars in a regular basis, they see either of the big three put up big performances and lead the team to crucial victories.

Given how good all the three have been individually, it won’t be a surprise if we see one of the best offensive teams the league has ever seen once the big three is in full force.

Brooklyn Nets runaway favorites for the title?

Given how the Nets have performed despite missing KD for the majority of the regular season, it is truly scary what the Big Three might do. While analysts might question their fit, the team already has defined roles and in the limited time looked elite on the offensive end.

Over the past few games, they have looked pretty solid in defense as well. With players like Aldridge and KD who can wreak havoc with the mid-range, to players like Harden and Joe Harris who can destroy you from the perimeter and then an all-round package like Kyrie, the Nets’ offensive arsenal is absolutely endless.

The Brooklyn Nets are an offensive powerhouse and are improving drastically on the defensive end as well. If they can continue such form in the post-season, we might be set for a Nets championship run.
