You do realize that they played each other and Harden outplayed him right? It wasn't even a year ago, so it's amazing that you managed to forget.

It's Harden obviously. Westbrook has the basketball iq of a caveman in the stone ages. He's a dumbfck on the court and it shows in ps almost every time.

Sorry to be the party pooper but these guys just shattered the record for most TOs in a season last year. Last time I checked, turnovers are bad.

Two of James harden's turnovers this season were basically from stupid passes he threw every single game. The guy threw some of the worst passes I've ever seen and just kept doing it over and over again. I'll take Westbrook, but neither is a pg really. Luckily for the Rockets they now have the best in the league with CP3 running the show.

Wow. Especially for point guards. They are both shooting guards cursed with not having anyone better then them at passing.

Insert CP3

Last year Harden averaged 5.7 TO and Westbrook 5.4 TO.

Guess how many TO MJ averaged in his 6 championship seasons? That's a 6 season sample size. 2.4 TO. On top of giving you 30+ PPG, elite D, elite post game and elite mid-range game.

People don't realize how much superior MJ is to even guys like these guys if you really break it down. These guys play 1 end and turn it over much more. MJ played 2 ends and was much more careful with the ball and much more efficient.

You're not going to win a championship with either guy as "the man". Too ball dominant and too turnover prone. So I wouldn't want either of them if I was building a franchise. They don't play the right way. But probably give the nod to WB because he's significantly more athletic.

Brings up MJ in a thread that has nothing to do with him. Jordan stains.

Give me Westbrook, the one that actually wants to win.

Pretty evident by his series against the Spurs earlier this year that Harden doesn't really give a shit and is perfectly content dribbling 20 seconds of the shot clock away and launching a 25 footer.

Westbrook is the better point guard, Harden is the better player. Harden is a shootin guard for most part of his career, and will most likely be a shooting guard again next season.

CP3 hasn't been the best PG for a very long time. Don't follow the Hamtaro train of madness. Both are also better than him despite having 1/3rd of his IQ (for Westbrook) and 1/5th of his defense (Harden).

Why are you bringing up MJ? Of course MJ is going to look good when compared to them when it comes to TOs. Every single player in the history of the sport is as well, since they're both the worst at it.
