I wouldnt say Harden is the best scorer in the Nba. Although his stats show him to be a top 3 player in the league, the percentages and free throws taken are overlooked in almost everybodys analysis of him. The man is shooting pretty bad at 43% fg and even worse from the 3. Plus the BIGGEST factor in his stats is the fact that he shoots more than 20 free throws a game which is absurd considering people are calling him "the best offensive player in the Nba. Heck, even Curry shooting better than that and he also getting stats close to him with rebounds/assists but with better percentage and WAY less free throws(people just like to watch the highlights and forget other players that are more consistent just because Hardens game looks better). Even Giannis is shooting 60% from fg and gets higher stats. Harden is a great player, just not the player everybody hyping him to be. Stop freaking out because he made that last shot, he missed 5 of them before that lmao.

Appreciate all the brothers games, but there’s no way you can say if klay, Durant, and Green not playing together that steph will lead his team to something special but that kind of exposure would harm his game he needs at least one counter option to take the pressure off as oppose to harden. Literally every time harden gets the ball past half court it’s like the nigga gets that super glow(pause). His rhythm dribble is crazy insane like as soon he gets low and has that tunnel vision look it’s over. He started from nothing worked hard and kept getting better and better. He just needed verification about the progress in his game coming up realized he was on to something and never looked backed in that aspect.

Any star in today’s game could be called this if they got 12-20 FTs a game man. Steph just averaged 42 on 4 FT. You don’t think Lebron, KD, Kawhi, Kyrie, gannis, Embid etc. I’m not saying he’s not nice but take the double step back travel and the high amounts of FTs away and he’s average 20-22 at best. Not bad still though imo

Harden is the best scorer right now but not the greatest offensive player so I agree with Max on this one. we know that steph and lebron are better than Harden despite not being great defenders (Lebron still has the ability to be a great defender but has to chose not to for the sake of his health). Is that Marginal difference in defense really worth the 7+ extra ppg Hardens giving you? no.

This was kinda mind boggling. Steven and Max are both right. So the answer is at the moment James Harden is number #1 for MVP race. Labron you better stop playing hurt, if you want that Goat recognition.

He's averaging that much because he doesn't have another superstar to share the ball with!! He's the only superstar on his team. If lebron wanted to be could average that much, but he passes to much to pad his stats. Curry was killing it before Durant came, but he has to share with Thompson and Durant.. Take Durant off, guarantee he will average 33 - 35 Durant as well, he's alwyas had superstars he played with, he had to Share with Harden and Westbrook, now he has to share with curry and Thompson, I no doubt in my mind believe Durant can average easily 35 a game Kawhi Leonard as well can average 32 easily, he scores so easily. But that's not his style.

Wow 6 years ago.. Mr Smith said this same thing about Durant... Are you saying now that James Harden.. Is better offensive player than Kevin Durant? I remember when you said that Durant would go down as the greatest scorer of all time so what has change.. Cause he playing team ball and has more help.. Sigh

Except when it comes to LeBron James! these guys are so double minded its rediculous . when it comes to LeBron James he can do no wrong no wrong they max kellerman has used the same numbers he used to say James harden is not the best scorer in the league to say LeBron is ! its like these people want us to absolutely forget LeBron James couldn't win a championship without first creating the first super team in Miami and with this same super team lost against the wait.......wait for it.............. The Dallas Mavericks and not only did he get beat he got shut dowm! buy the................ Dallas mavericks!! not to mention the way they got man handled by the spurs and what did mister best player in the game do at the first sign of trouble..........wait for it............ He went to create another super team in Cleveland with the same big three he had in Miami with him and Dwayne wade and Chris Bosh with him and Kevin love and kyrie Irving not to mention all of the other pieces he asked for #he asked for to win another championship .James harden is in the top five players of all time and so is Kevin Durant so is derrick rose even with out a championship Carmel Anthony when he was in his prime was a top five player but as time goes by we tend to want to replace them with what's current I don't have a problem with that to each his or her own . but what I do have a problem with is max kellerman and may other sports commentators spewing this double standard when it comes to LeBron James while at the same time not ever taking into account that these players they are disrespectfully saying are not in the discussion as it pertains to being one of their greatest players never ran to make a super team which had a half hour sports tv.show calling them a super team in Miami to win a championship like their god LeBron James did! they stayed with their respected teams win or loose! and they are still killing the b.ball court putting up better numbers than LeBron that max kellerman just used to say James harden is not a top five player which were the same numbers they used to try and say LeBron is already better than jordan! . but people allow these bullcrap narratives that these sports commentators use! to influence their opinions on who is and who isn't in the discussion of who is great or not . its a shame too
