    Harden made like 85% of his shots off ISOs...can't defend that in any era especially he Harden is shooting long range threes like he did last year.

    You are just a ***** afraid of the world.

    This comment was ill advised at best but he has a very strong record as a GM.

    Well, in that case, no one is a better scorer than anyone since everyone has different circumstances.

    Spamming 3s in the regular season doesn't make you a better scorer than Jordan.

    Harden in the playoffs as the man:

    39%
    38%
    44%
    41%
    41%
    41%
    41%

    b-b-but he shoots so many 3s, ofc his shooting percentages are gonna be lower!!... except he's also terrible from 3 in the playoffs.

    34%
    30%
    38%
    31%
    28%
    30%
    35%

    Harden is a regular season player. Calling him a better scorer than the greatest playoff scorer of all-time is amusing to say the least.

    Bang.

    Now show all the 3 point clankers he had to take to make this one ill advised shot. I'll take MJ abusing Harden on defense in the post, off the dribble, from mid-range, and occasionally from 3 point range rather than Harden making a wild 30 point three pointer once in awhile or executing the only predictable go to move he has, the driving floater. Jordan was elite at scoring more than a dozen different ways. Harden has 2 or 3 at most, if not counting flopping.

    Watching 3/9 just isn't the same. It's mediocre by comparison.
    The list can go on and on.

    Rebounding
    Blocks
    Assist
    3 pt shot..

    It is just like Wayne Gretzky.
    Except his vision and anticipation, he was not the strongest, he was not the fastest, a lot of players shot harder and better than him, check better than him...
    Well, if you put everything together, well, Gretzky was the best.

    Anybody can score more than Jordan, more fancy than him, rebounding and block more than him, had more assist...
    When you add up everything... Jordan is the best, still.

    Hockey is a little more segmented than basketball though...

    Jordan might legit be the best at everything.

    I think he likes to pump up his players' ego in public. This isn't the first time he has done this with Harden. He completely dismissed any friction between Harden and Paul just weeks before he traded Paul. I don't think you can take his public comments at face value.

    I think his problem is that his analytics are based too much on regular season games. Playoff games are different.

    3pt shooting % goes down in the playoffs even though the best shooting teams are in the playoffs. Midrange shooting goes up in value (see Kawhi and KD last season) because good looks are harder to find from 3 and at the rim . I get the impression that his analysis doesn't take this into account. MDA doesn't seem to adjust his strategy in the playoffs either.
    Bob Myers, RC Buford, Sam Presti, David Griffin, Donn Nelson, Pat Riley, Danny Ainge, Masai Ujiri all come to mind as GMs that have been at least as successful if not more then Daryl Morey.

    Its just an asinine statement to make, and to your point, more ridiculous considering how relatively terrible Harden is in the playoffs. And MDA is a great analogy.
