    sorry man, there's no way u could put Harden at #2...KD has that on lock

    u can't make the case that Harden's the 2nd best player in the NBA, but u can easily do that for the Durant

    Kawhi and Curry are not ahead of Harden.

    Lebron
    KD
    Harden/Westbrook
    Kawhi
    Curry

    Lol for the whole season harden single handed carried us to 3rd seed overall being in the west.

    Behind curry/kd/green/klay/ai
    Behind kawhi/lma/gasol/parker/ginobli
    Ahead of lebron/irving/love
    Ahead of cp3/griffin/dj

    And their multiple stars and hof coach and league leading physical and stifling defense for almost 2 decades now wore and beat harden down from thru the series.in the playoffs they double triple teamed harden and dared the role player.
    Maybe you conveniently forgot they spanked us 3 to 1 in the reg season. They had 6 more wins and hca yet thanks to harden he was still able to push it to 6 games

    Harden was guarding a 7 footer after the nene went down. Need i tell you how many rings that team has collectively against arizas? Need i tell you how many quality physical defenders they throw at harden?

    So by game 5 and game 6, the physical toll ,fatigue, and exhaustion of being the only star of a team in a league of multi star contenders thru the reg season and playoffs had catched up to him

    Blame morey for not having a better team around harden
    Blame mda for grinding harden playing a short rotation and not being able to outcoach pop

    Not even lebron or kd or curry by themselves on the rockets could have done better than better than 3rd seed overall on the west. They wouldnt had gotten us past the spurs and gsw either

    I'd have LeBron and KD over him for sure. I think he's better than Westbrook, largely because of efficiency.

    Harden, Curry and Kawhi all have cases for being over one another, so that'd put him anywhere from #3-5. So I'll say #4.

    FYI

    in Harden's rockets tenure, he has scored 0.1 points per game less in the playoffs compared to the regular season. Yeah that's 1/10th of a point. That's actually amazing considering he's the only legit offensive threat and he's most double/triple/quadruple teamed player during the playoffs since he joined the rockets. And yes he's also getting hacked and fouled more in the playoffs.

    compare that to Ariza, Bev, Gordon, Anderson, Capela who in their rockets tenure have scored a total of a whopping 8.6 points per game less in the playoffs compared to the regular season. How do you guys expect Harden to make up for almost 10 points? Not even Lebron, KD, or Steph (being the only superstar on the rockets therefore double/triple/quadruple teamed in the playoffs) can make that up.

    He's either 3rd or 4th. Lebron and Durant are over him. Curry is 5-10. I know Curry on a team like okc or Houston wouldn't move the needle more than Harden or Westbrook let alone a Lebron or Durant lol.

    Harden isn't even top 10. Chokes when it matters. Fun reg season player but there's a reason OKC didnt show him the money in 2012. Players better than Harden:

    LeBron
    Kawhi
    Giannis
    Curry
    Durant
    Klay
    Draymond
    Wall
    Westbrook

    and this guy:



    And no GM would trade any of these guys for Harden.
