Alright, you want it by stats, here we go.
Look at the performances of Harrington's counterpart, since his start for the W's. I've gone through every game since the trade, and looked for the largest forward that played at least 25 minutes. Sometimes, that is not a typical PF, like Varrajao in Cleveland.
I am comparing their season average in PPG/RPG and their performance against the W's (and Harrington). The trend is for those that play against the W's PF to have better than average games.
12/20 scored higher than their average
11/20 had more rebounds than their average
12/20 had more rebounds than Harrington's 7.1 average w the W's
The numbers are not insanely bad, though not good for Harrinton. Yes, he outscores most PF's, and most player, in the league, and he often outscores his counterpart on the other team. But, their counterpart also tends to perform better when playig agianst him.

The only stat that really matters:
With Harrington: 7W-14L (33.3% wins)
Before Harrinton: 19W-21L (47.5% wins)
If the W's only continued at their previous win rate, they'd have 29 wins now, and less than 1/2 a game out of 8.
I'm totally not saying that Harrington is THE problem on the team. But, he was supposed to help WIN games. I love his points, and his rebounds are actually decent, I'd just like to get them from him at the 3, not the 4.
