Colin discusses James Harden arguing he’s the best player in the league. Personally I’m a huge James Harden fan, but Colin raises some tough-to-argue points. The one that stuck out to me most in this video is whether you can be considered the best when you really haven’t done anything.
Colin refers to Harden as a “stat monster”, and can you really call him wrong? There’s no doubt that Harden is one of the top players in the league today. One of the top players in the WORLD today. He puts up enormous numbers on a consistent basis (currently averaging better than 30 points a game). But what does all that mean if you’ve only had 1 playoff run, during which you won 2 series?
What do you think?
