You can't really blame Steph Curry for averaging less assists than Harden. The Warrior's entire system is revolved around moving the ball. In Houston the entire offense is run through either CP3 or James Harden, and most of that time its James Harden bringing the ball up, ISOing, and running pick and rolls. Basically what I'm saying is that naturally James Harden has more assists when the entire offense is run through him.

If you take anybody out the top 5 for Harden it should be Durant lol. Everybody else has shown some competence at leadership on top of their other skills whereas Durant never has.

Kd is at the least 2nd best player. Not Question , u just can’t guard, AD and Leonard u can stop and draymond and kd can lock up. Kd is the best player in the league. He’s underrated passer, and only reason he doesn’t avenge more assists is because the teams he’s played on didn’t allow( russel Westbrook ) and with the warriors system , but that’s only because not 1 player holds the ball.

For someone to win MVP they should be proven as the top tier in their group of peers as the best in every aspect of their sport' skills. Harden is not known period as a good defensive player which should equal no consideration as the MVP.

People that don't put Curry in the top 5 are seriously musguided. He does things besides be the greatest shooter in the history of the game (as if that is easy) that can can't be quantified by the stat sheet. That guy changed the way the game is played period, and doesn't even get credit for it - Kobe retired after he saw what golden state was doing to the league, lebron has been playing catch up bottom line.. AD good player but not top 5 - khawi, good player but not top 5.. Before Kyrie that's disrespect but whatever that's my opinion.

There is only one other person who can do what James harden can do and it’s Lebron. No one in the league can carry a trash team to 55+ wins. Harden did it in the West while Lebron only carried his team in the east. Harden is easily top 2 and if y’all can’t see that you don’t know basketball
MR. T Oy oldin
How is AD better than Harden, yes Defensively it’s no comparison but harden has shown he has lead his team to two western conference finals, and the best record in the West almost beating the warriors in 6 games. AD hasn’t done that or won an MVP or been a runner up in that reguard

it is not a coincidence that in every great team in the modern era the best passer has 6-7 maximum assists(Bulls,Spers,GSW)in a great system all the players are involved!! i believe Curry could have 10-11 assists easy if this was his role.
