    Curry has been a spoiled rich kid always having Klay\Dray\Iggy to cover up his weaknesses

    Harden is less consistent in the playoffs as a scorer

    Very tough to decide, I think it depends on what kind of roster you have. Curry is much more likely to get exposed with a bad supporting cast, while we already know Harden can carry weak supporting casts. I don't see Curry as a great enough playoff performer to overcome being the worse overall player, so I say Harden wins this by an inch.

    Yeah and Harden was dragged down by Chris Paul who I've heard is supposedly better than both of them.

    If he could keep his hamstring healthy, you may have a point. That wasn't the case. He was also terrible in 2019

It's a strategy that can work.

    That being said, I've seen a healthy Curry put up the best offensive season of the last 20 years. I still think he has that in him. His off-ball gravity has an unquantifiable impact on the rest of his team. I've never seen someone get more attention from defenses coming around screens or off curls. He's the best shooter of all time. Give me Curry

    Only the 2016-17 GSW, 1986-87 LAL, 1991-92 CHI, 1987-88 BOS, and the 1995-96 CHI finished with better ORtg. Only a ****ing idiot would say that Harden's style is not compatible.
    2019-20 Dallas Mavs have the highest ORtg of all time

    I mean, it goes both ways, Curry covers a lot of their weaknesses as well. Draymond pretty much proved this year hes just your basic roleplayer.

    He needs them more than they need him. Dont forget the warriors were cruising through the first 2 rounds of the 16 playoffs before steph came back. That same team without klay had a losing record. Steph needs dray and especially klay more than his stans realize

    This sequence is pretty amazing.

    The way it was going against the Warriors it would have been CP3. I trust CP3 a lot more in pressure situations than Harden too.

    Harden is pretty awful when the game actually matters, but then again Curry's 2016 performance was extremely subpar as well.

    At this rate Klay will need to be ranked higher than Reggie Miller for the world Curry's critics live in to make sense. Maybe Pippen too. Not that Curry would mind, he's always been happy to see his teammates shine.

    1. What has James Harden done that Curry hasn't?

    2. What has Curry done that Harden hasn't? 3 championships/1 more league MVP/Led the league in steals

    How is this even a discussion?

    What's amazing about that is how hard it was for Curry to get around LeBron. He tried to get around him three or four times before finally seeing a crease on the fifth.

    Basically Curry had to clear back out to use the threat of his three to find any room against LJ.

    Incredible defense by James.

    Dont take it personal dude. Everyone needs help its just that curry needs more than others because he lacks in certain ereas where others dont. Most noticeably defense. Klay and dray were definitely worse offensively without steff but they were better defensively and good enough offensively so they coukd get by without him. Without klay you still lose alot offense but you also lose alot of defense.
