With James Harden reportedly wanting to play with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, many NBA analysts question whether that trio would work.

Four-time NBA champion and Spurs legend Tony Parker, however, doesn’t share those concerns.

“That would be amazing,” Parker said on The DA Show, referring to Harden joining the Nets. “That would be amazing. It would be fun for basketball. A lot of great teams [are] going to be ready for next year. Golden State will be back, the Lakers definitely will be ready . . . and Milwaukee just got loaded with [Bogdan] Bogdanovic and Jrue Holiday. If you can have Brooklyn ready too and Miami is going to still improve, it’s going to be a very, very exciting NBA season next year.”

In terms of pure talent, Harden, Durant and Irving would form perhaps the top trio in basketball. But would they be able to share one basketball?

“I’m sure they would try to figure it out,” Parker said. “When you want to win championships, you have to make sacrifices and you have to do stuff for the good of the team like we did in San Antonio with myself and Timmy [Tim Duncan] and Manu [Ginobili]. We found a way. I’m sure they are three very smart players, and they’ll find a way to make it work.”
