ESPN's Kirk Goldsberry examines Houston Rockets star James Harden's scoring dominance in his 2018-19 MVP encore performance. Whether it's his patented step-back jumper, or his recurring trips to the charity stripe, Harden continues to innovate modern offense, making him one of the NBA's most dominant offensive forces.

you can argue that he's not most offensive player all time in NBA but his stats doesn't lie...and thats the truth.

Allowed to travel 😂 allowed to wreak havoc on these bunch of lames. Harden is the smoothest player in the NBA today if you don’t like his game it’s because he’s whooping your teams ass or you are a boring person

The narrator included Stephen curry with the likes of MJ AND WLIT smh. He ain't the best player in his team nor is he better than Kobe.

When the media compliments guys like KD, Steph or Harden. It almost sounds like a back handed compliment. They will call these guys anything but the best. They stick with Lebron. Giving him a tittle he didnt rightfully even earn. Its just a cliche.

MirTwizzTM yes he has elite handles if you don't see that you're biased, also if you know the rules of basketball you would know that 99 percent of his stepbacks aren't a travel, thirdly, harden led the league in assists before, kd hasnt, kd is playing in the golden state system with two of the best shooters of all time, which allows him to get more assists- shown how he wasn't getting as many assists as he is this year, and lastly, assists aren't the form of playmaking, watch a game and analyze it using actual sense please. so again, harden is elite at everything from ballhandling to scoring and playmaking. only other player to be close is steph curry #facts

Greatest offensive force all-time? Not even close. Of this new era with no touch defense? Yes he can have that. If Harden played the 87 Pistons he would get punished. He would be more athletic and skilled but the brute physicality would be to much for him. Hand checking outside the 3 point line doesn't let you face the basket like today. Hahaha tick tack fouls to send him to the freethrow? First driving freely like today wouldn't exist. Nothing short of DDTs, suplexes, and gunshots would get you to the line against the 87 Pistons.

Harden has gotten to a level where he has mastered his offensive system and his skill are maximized within the system. Same thing that curry has done in GS. If you have ever watched someone score, score, and score on and endless consistent basis ie Michael Jordan, you can't help but compare Harden's display on the offensive end. What's scary is that people are not talking about how much his D has improved, his hands are crafty on the defensive end almost as they are on the offensive end. Steals, tipped passes, blocks. This guy is damn good. BBall fans appreciate this one

Pfft no way. Harden is the most Overhyped and Overrated offensive force in NBA History. He's an Overrated soft stat padder who will never be better than MJ. He doesn't care about winning championships. As long as he's getting paid and playing he won't care. That's just reality.

Can we stop hyping this failure up?? Cool, he's good in the regular season and he's NEVER this "offensive juggernaut" and "greatest offensive player of all time" when it counts most which is in the playoffs. It's the same story over and over. Fine, give the leagues greatest choke artist ever another MVP so we can disgrace this award even more. He's easily the most overrated player of all time

Sleazy Cleve first off bro u don't know me at all and just because I'm not a harden hater doesn't mean I don't know b ball and obviously u don't so someone that carried his team to the conference finals 2 times and been there altogether 4 is over hyped come on man u don't know b ball cause if he overhyped for just not making an NBA finals yet shit cp3 never even been to a conference final before he got to the rockets so if harden overhyped wat bout ad wat bout giannis wat bout Westbrook wat about um oh and the list goes on and on don't say he had a chance to beat warriors cause guess wat I still never seen any of those players you named win a ship by themselves and you a lie if u say they did and u know cp3 was hurt the last two games so all u trying say just sounds like hate to me you hater lol

+De Jun Gabriel De Jun Gabriel De Jun Gabriel De Jun Gabriel watch how I pick you apart. Why watch the video if I'm gonna hate? Cause if I'm being honest, the title triggered me. I've been watching this game since the early '90s and done even more research, and for ESPN of all platforms to say Harden is the NBA's most valuable offensive force is purely outrageous and just an attention getter. And blasphemous and almost sacrilegious. Lately ESPN and other sport outlets have been calling Harden the greatest offensive player of all time. And I'm just not having that disrespect, so I came to spread facts and knowledge on harden that you pussies would call "hating". If I'm a hater I'm a hater so be it, but as long as ppl know what a scrub this guy really is and how he's not even close to the best offensive player now nor EVER (that's putting him over Kobe, MJ, Wilt, Kareem, Hakeem, Bron, iverson, Shaq, Bird, Dirk, no just no, he's not even close). He'll never ever be either of those things, and is the most mentally weakest "superstar" (which I wouldn't call him a superstar but just a star) I've ever seen. They call him all these superlatives all season long and put him on a pedestal then when the lights shine brightest and the games matter most, Harden ALWAYS, ALWAYS disappears. Next, no, I would never ever want him on my team or my favorite team. I'll pass on him 10/10 times. Not everyone is dying for a lazy one dimensional player who don't show up in big moments, who doesn't play defense, and who without a great team around him would be trash, who leads the league year after year in turnovers, like naw man I'm good I'd rather have KWAME BROWN, or Scalabrine, or Rick Fox on my team then harden. for god sakes, Luka is better than him right now as a MF ROOKIE, dawg!!

Harden is averaging 42 points (!) per game since Chris Paul's injury. He is up to 33.6 for the season, on pace for the highest scoring average since Kobe Bryant in 2005-06. This is prime Michael Jordan territory.

+Benjamin Franklin Harden shoots way more 3s and at a better % than Kobe. If you compared their 2 Point % it's not even close. That's why Harden has a TS% of 60+% multiple seasons and Kobe never had one season his whole career of 60+% TS.
