Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden

The 2018 MVP, James Harden is struggling this season where he is seen being out of rhythm due to rule changes and getting less free throw attempts. This really cuts down the chances of Brooklyn running a championship run since Kyrie Irving is still unavailable, James Harden is out of form and this puts all pressure on Kevin Durant alone.
