I doubt it but he will be hands down the best SG in 2 years, if not already.

No chance. Kevin Durant will always be the better player. He's too athletic, long, and tall. His handles are better, he's a better rebounder, 3 point shooter, and rebounder. Harden can be stopped by elite teams. Durant won't be stopped, only by Westbrick.

I actually see this happening, imo Harden has the potential to be the best player in the NBA after LeBron eventually slows after a few more seasons. Harden seems to be a much more two-dimensional player than Durant imo.

Durant is one of the most one-dimensional superstars in NBA history

Being that Durant is massively overrated, I'm not positive that Harden isn't already.

At least Harden fcuking earns all those free throws. Durant's game loses MAJOR respect points with the amount of utterly ridiculous phantom calls he gets.

The obvious uneven officiating for Durant can't be overlooked. It's that bad.

Durant's pretty much Ray Allen 2.0 imo, the only difference being that he's taller/longer etc.

Is James HArden now even better than a Prime Paul Pierce? Durant has historic moments, unique skill set and is on his way to be an all time great.

Probably not, but I agree with this.

Harden's FT comes from driving with the ball held ahead of him. He gets a crap load of and1's.

Durant manages to shoot more by shooting jumpers all game. Durant gets Wade in finals type FT treatment every game.

Agreed.


Durant is one of a kind. It's really tough to put him in a box.

I sometimes see T-Mac but his attitude is much better
I sometimes see George Gervin but hes longer and better shooter
I sometimes see Dirk but he's much more athletic

He is as unique as Lebron is. You can't compare them to one player.


Harden to me is has always been in the Paul Pierce mode.
