They were fun to watch, I think that's 90% of the take away from the honeymoon period. Playoffs and inevitable crisis/when things get tough are only times we'll get a true read.I am actually encouraged about how motivated Durant and Harden are and that they will keep Irving in line. If Kyrie starts pouting or playing selfish ball, they will just stick him on the bench and actually encourage him to take more Kyrie spa days.
Yet your point is still valid; Harden + Durant is arguably combining the two best scorers in the league so you are 100% right that its a formidable duo with or without Kyrie.
Is the fact that Kyrie is the definitive #3 and not entirely necessary (maybe to get to or win finals?) a good or a bad thing? I'd say 50-50. TBD
