If the reports that the Charlotte Bobcats are looking to trade the second pick in the NBA draft for James Harden are true, things are looking good for Brian Shaw.
Shaw was a succesful player and assistant coach with the Lakers under Phil Jackson, and he’s going to impliment the triangle offense wherever he goes.
What better (possibly) availbe player is there to run that offense through than James Harden? During his time in OKC Harden has turned into an efficient decision maker; This season his true shooting percentage was 66 percent, he assisted on 19 percent of his teammates field goals while he was on the floor, and he turned the ball over just 15 times per 100 possessions.
He’s not Kobe Bryant, but he could be the Kobe in Shaw’s triangle offense.
Of course right now this is all a bunch of speculation, and the Thunder might not even want to part with Harden, but it seems like the Charlotte Bobcats are searching for a player to be the go-to-guy in one of the NBA’s most famous (and hard to master) offenses.
