Basketball Podcast: James Harden Trade and NBA Dinosaur Tiers

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

It's the day before the 2012-13 NBA season begins and we have two things on our minds: James Harden and dinosaurs.

Matt Moore joined me to discuss the fallout of the Oklahoma City Thunder trading James Harden to the Houston Rockets. How will Harden affect the Rockets and how far can he push them as the star of the team? Is Kevin Martin an acceptable replacement for Harden in OKC and how do the Thunder adjust their attack?

After we discuss the trade, Matt decides to break the NBA into tiers marked by dinosaurs. Seriously. We've got T-Rex, PyroRaptor, Flying dinosaurs and more. Find out where he thinks teams fall in comparison and I try to figure out the madness too.

Give it a listen.
