  1. I bet max Keller has a Lil dick 😭 hates on everything typical lil dick syndrome ‼️ James harden is better then Lebron in the scoring category hands down anyday I can bet harden for 30 the least

  2. Um. I’d take James harden over steph or lebron. Lebron is failing with the lakers and curry can not carry a team. He has 4 other all stars on his team it’s easy for curry to score.

  3. Always the same Max open your eyes and enjoy the regular season you can tell he has never played the game before. James also leads the league in tipped passes but ya'll just inflate stats that you want people to know rather then telling the whole truth… He is on a historical run never done by anyone other then WILT THE STILT stfu Max you just a hater.

  4. Kobe? Really he’s had nine straight 40+ and 4 straight 50+. Most points scored in a month like 40 times. Kobe has much more in his arsenal and had more competition and still scored tuff ass shots. Harden just does travel steobscks and shoots tons of free throws.

  5. this stuff of saying a guy is the greatest of all time or the best scorer ever but they don't count the whole nba they say you cant count this or that if u do that then its not the itsthe the greatest of all time or the best thje nba has ever seen go back and look up the numbers Wilt put up then come back and say he is not the best its a joke

  6. I wouldnt say Harden is the best scorer in the Nba. Although his stats show him to be a top 3 player in the league, the percentages and free throws taken are overlooked in almost everybodys analysis of him. The man is shooting pretty bad at 43% fg and even worse from the 3. Plus the BIGGEST factor in his stats is the fact that he shoots more than 20 free throws a game which is absurd considering people are calling him "the best offensive player in the Nba. Heck, even Curry shooting better than that and he also getting stats close to him with rebounds/assists but with better percentage and WAY less free throws(people just like to watch the highlights and forget other players that are more consistent just because Hardens game looks better). Even Giannis is shooting 60% from fg and gets higher stats. Harden is a great player, just not the player everybody hyping him to be. Stop freaking out because he made that last shot, he missed 5 of them before that lmao.

  7. Appreciate all the brothers games, but there’s no way you can say if klay, Durant, and Green not playing together that steph will lead his team to something special but that kind of exposure would harm his game he needs at least one counter option to take the pressure off as oppose to harden. Literally every time harden gets the ball past half court it’s like the nigga gets that super glow(pause). His rhythm dribble is crazy insane like as soon he gets low and has that tunnel vision look it’s over. He started from nothing worked hard and kept getting better and better. He just needed verification about the progress in his game coming up realized he was on to something and never looked backed in that aspect.

  8. Enough with Lebron already!.. witness the passing of the torch to James Harden!!.. MJ passed it to Kobe and Kobe to LJ, now LJ to Harden!!.. give players what are due for them..
