how many franchise players do you think there are in the NBA then? i don't think Harden is a franchise player mysef and i think there are maybe 10 or so real franchise players in the league to begin with. and any team with a good supporting cast can make the playoffs with or without a franchise player (Indiana, Atlanta, Utah, Memphis). guys who i label as franchise players include Kobe, Dwight Howard, Lebron, Rose, Duncan, and CP3 for example.
