  • Опубликовано: 9 янв 2019
  • ESPN's Kirk Goldsberry examines Houston Rockets star James Harden's scoring dominance in his 2018-19 MVP encore performance. Whether it's his patented step-back jumper, or his recurring trips to the charity stripe, Harden continues to innovate modern offense, making him one of the NBA's most dominant offensive forces.

      MirTwizzTM yes he has elite handles if you don't see that you're biased, also if you know the rules of basketball you would know that 99 percent of his stepbacks aren't a travel, thirdly, harden led the league in assists before, kd hasnt, kd is playing in the golden state system with two of the best shooters of all time, which allows him to get more assists- shown how he wasn't getting as many assists as he is this year, and lastly, assists aren't the form of playmaking, watch a game and analyze it using actual sense please. so again, harden is elite at everything from ballhandling to scoring and playmaking. only other player to be close is steph curry #facts

    Greatest offensive force all-time? Not even close. Of this new era with no touch defense? Yes he can have that. If Harden played the 87 Pistons he would get punished. He would be more athletic and skilled but the brute physicality would be to much for him. Hand checking outside the 3 point line doesn't let you face the basket like today. Hahaha tick tack fouls to send him to the freethrow? First driving freely like today wouldn't exist. Nothing short of DDTs, suplexes, and gunshots would get you to the line against the 87 Pistons.

    Harden has gotten to a level where he has mastered his offensive system and his skill are maximized within the system. Same thing that curry has done in GS. If you have ever watched someone score, score, and score on and endless consistent basis ie Michael Jordan, you can't help but compare Harden's display on the offensive end. What's scary is that people are not talking about how much his D has improved, his hands are crafty on the defensive end almost as they are on the offensive end. Steals, tipped passes, blocks. This guy is damn good. BBall fans appreciate this one

      +De Jun Gabriel De Jun Gabriel De Jun Gabriel De Jun Gabriel watch how I pick you apart. Why watch the video if I'm gonna hate? Cause if I'm being honest, the title triggered me. I've been watching this game since the early '90s and done even more research, and for ESPN of all platforms to say Harden is the NBA's most valuable offensive force is purely outrageous and just an attention getter. And blasphemous and almost sacrilegious. Lately ESPN and other sport outlets have been calling Harden the greatest offensive player of all time. And I'm just not having that disrespect, so I came to spread facts and knowledge on harden that you pussies would call "hating". If I'm a hater I'm a hater so be it, but as long as ppl know what a scrub this guy really is and how he's not even close to the best offensive player now nor EVER (that's putting him over Kobe, MJ, Wilt, Kareem, Hakeem, Bron, iverson, Shaq, Bird, Dirk, no just no, he's not even close). He'll never ever be either of those things, and is the most mentally weakest "superstar" (which I wouldn't call him a superstar but just a star) I've ever seen. They call him all these superlatives all season long and put him on a pedestal then when the lights shine brightest and the games matter most, Harden ALWAYS, ALWAYS disappears. Next, no, I would never ever want him on my team or my favorite team. I'll pass on him 10/10 times. Not everyone is dying for a lazy one dimensional player who don't show up in big moments, who doesn't play defense, and who without a great team around him would be trash, who leads the league year after year in turnovers, like naw man I'm good I'd rather have KWAME BROWN, or Scalabrine, or Rick Fox on my team then harden. for god sakes, Luka is better than him right now as a MF ROOKIE, dawg!!

That's what people don't understand about LeBron. He dictates the outcomes of games like no other. Because he great at pretty much everything.

      A lot of people say this but don't actually understand how defenses have changed in the last decade +. Teams today, teams in the 90s and teams in the 80s, adjusted for pace, are scoring at and getting stops at the same rate or very similar. Jordan was already taking more shots than basically anyone today and some if the illegal defense rules back in the 90s actually helped iso scorers.
      He is still the goat but he wouldn't average no 40, it would be right around what he averaged back in the day so like 30-32 on a winning team 35 on a bad team

      nahor88 James Harden can eat a dick, you can continue to gobble his shaft on the count of you’re so good at it. I’m sure he appreciates how deep you’re willing to swallow his penis.

      +Chi. Robi Idiot, what motivation would refs have for protecting him? They fucking let KD "save" a ball with both feet out of bounds while looking straight at him, how is that "protecting" Harden? Initiating contact to draw fouls is not "cheating"; players have done it since the dawn of the NBA, you haters are just not accustomed to seeing someone do it so efficiently. Harden would have multiple rings already were it not for the Warriors, and none of you fuckers would be disrespecting his greatness.

    I wouldn’t say best offensive player all time, he’s the best offensive player in the league but I wish he was more efficient tho

      Mannie p Variety commenter like i said if you can read, he takes a lot of threes so it's skewed towards his three point percentage. 2/6 from three and 2/6 in the paint are 6 points and 4 points respectively, but both 33% from three, but 2/6 from three is more efficient. look at efg or true shooting to determine how efficient one really is foo

      Michael Jordan field goal percentage doesn't equal efficiency. keep in mind majority of his shots are three pointers, so if he's taking 11 threes on 19 shots most of it will be skewed towards his three point percentage which is 39%

      +Andrew Castelli those defensive stats aren't good indicators of defense you don't even know how they're calculated lmao. Watch the games and learn defense and you'll see he's improved on that end.
      Will Barton is the highest defensive win shares this season and joe Ingles is 5th, that's not a reliable stat lmao

      Harden is the 7th best player. LeBron, Kawhi, Curry, KD, Giannis, and Davis are all better.
