  1. MAKE HARDEN GREAT AGAIN, ALLOW HIM TO TRAVEL ON STEP BACK JUMPERS, INITIATE FOULS BY RAISING HIS ARMS AND CAUSING THE CONTACT, BECOME THE MASTER OF THE FLOP. ATTEMPT MORE THREE POINT SHOTS IN A SEASON THEN ANYONE IN HISTORY, ONE THOUSAND ATTEMPTS WHILE ONLY MAKING 37 PERCENT, IN FACT HE HAS NEVER SHOT 40 PERCENT IN A SEASON, ATTEMPT 1900 TWO POINT ATTEMPTS AND 800 FREE THROWS, NO WONDER THE HOUSTON HARDINGS HAVE NOT WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP HE IS TOO TIRED TO WIN THE BIG GAMES!!!!

  2. I still don't understand dummies calling Durant "the best" while he's on that team…

    Let him did it somewhere else, then crown him. He's not better than Antetokoumpo anyway, he took over last year.

  3. Lebron is no where close to being the best player in basketball.. If he was, he would'be willed his team to many more wins.. He has never made anyone better.. He's played with the top players in the conference every year…. He did nothing to bring out the best in the young players in LA…

  4. James Harden is an offensive monster he possable one of the most unguardable players of this time, but he cant be considered the best player in the league. He still dosent play defense. All the top guys need to be offensive and defensive juggernaut. Mj was a beast offensively and defensively, LBJ the same Harden only does it one side. Kd and Yannis are in are the runner ups

  5. Im knocking KD but right now i respect Harden more than him. Hes literally had to carry a team, KD's never had to do that. Theres just no way around it for KD

  6. He acting like KD completely changed his game or something. he’s playing the same way he did in okc the difference is his points are meaningless because he could score 0 and they probably would win games anyway. A player that choked then ran away from his team to the team that beat him, the best team in the nba at the time.. fuck no KD will never be the best player in the nba ever tf is wrong with these guys

  7. How can Will say that Harden can't replace giannis in the best player conversation if he doesn't perform well in the playoffs when Giannis hasn't even been out of the first round yet? I mean, Harden has been going toe-to-toe with arguably the best assembled team in NBA history year-in and year-out in the playoffs. He's been doing it in the toughest conference. Been to the WCF twice since being in Houston. And he hasn't had the help that a lot of these top tier teams have been having. LeBron can have two other All-Stars on his team and everybody crying about how he need more help when he was in the weak East. But Harden is a choker when he has to go up against Golden State by himself? Come on now. LeBron couldn't win a single game against that Warriors team last year. But yet Harden and the Rockets pushed them to 7.
