    Let's put it this way, if Harden was more physical, less foul-baity, better mid-range game, better post-game, he's be Luka. The similarities in their games drift once you get past how they dribble out at the 3point line setting up their stepback.

    Obviously you are still reeling from Philly's loss and Boston's success.

    Yea...every great player is an excellent playoff performer based on those standards though and is almost never going to be the reason a team lost as they are usually the best player or the 2nd best player on the team. A shit game from a guy like Giannis is still better than like 95% of players...etc...

    Go back and watch game 4 of the finals last year and think about the context of that game. Nothing is a lock of course, but that game is likely the series for the Suns if they win. Paul was pretty bad. You can say overall he was fine in the series and I'd probably agree based on some standard, but a game like that has real weight to it. It's the difference in a likely title or not...and with Paul...yes, I agree he's excellent in the playoffs if the standard is just average player.

    But, if you compare him to the true all-time great playoff performers that have done legendary things when their teams needed it the most...he isn't close.

    The way Luka elevates his game in the playoffs makes him better than Harden. He can score in more ways (mid-range & post game) and does it more efficiently too. He's also really clutch and steps up in moments when it matters most. I really like his mentality and competitive fire

    This or Paul Pierce. Luka is a legit elite scoring wing PLUS and elite point guard in one package.

And that's what Luca does, he goes for points, rebounds and assists.

    They're both slightly out of shape, they both chuck up a lot of 3s, they both play a lot of isolation, and they both get a lot of assists due to having the ball, but aren't really point guards. Both aren't great defenders.
    They have similarities but Luka has a bigger bag. He uses the post and mid way more than harden who barely uses either.

    i think we can safely say that doncic has what harden lacks. sorry but harden was just starting to do what luka has been doing in his 5th year. no comp for me.

    Luka will have a farrrrrrr greater legacy...they won't even be comparable when both careers are over

    Similar style of player, but I think Luka is better on the basis that he changes it up more than Harden. Harden just reverts back to chucking if met with adversity.

    Luka on the other hand seems to welcome the challenge.
