Harden ain't even the best in this era. Steph, KD and Lebron are all better in the Playoffs. Harden's numbers drop significantly in the Playoffs despite the added minutes.

Career

24.3 ppg on 60.9%TS Regular Season (34.3 MPG)

22.9 ppg on 57.9%TS Playoffs (35.2 MPG)

MJ averages 33.4 ppg on 56.8%TS for his Playoffs career..

MJ had comparable efficiency numbers in an era where players/teams were much less efficient due to physical defense and slower pace. Put Jordan in the era of no handchecking on a D'Antoni team and he would be breaking all sorts of scoring records.

He means according to the stats of how many points scored per possession. Which is true, if that's your criteria of "better scorer".

Morey forgot to add "in the regular season".

In the playoffs MJ averaged 33 ppg, Harden 23.

Kawhit m8 hate's Harden so much but it eats away at him to not post in a Harden thread. He has to do it when he sees it.

Morey might be the most overrated person in the NBA. For someone that’s never even gotten to a Finals, I’m not sure why so many people take his wisdom that seriously.

Jordan is not perfect, anybody can be better than him in anything... if you want to breakdown the stats one by one.

Let Harden be the better scorer, but Jordan is a much better basketball player and achieved way more.

That's enough.

Incorrect.

No one can be better than Jordan.

Doesn't matter since the stats were obtained in totally different circumstances.

Oh, you mean it's easier to score when defense isn't allowed?

Revelation!

And he still isn't a better scorer even without defense.

Well ya, at certain parts of the game. Mark Price is better than MJ at free throws.

People who missed watching MJ live can't have a better lifetime experience of being an NBA fan as opposed to someone who did watch MJ live.

Watching 3/9 just isn't the same. It's mediocre by comparison.

Oh **** me sideways, Morey.


Harden is an AMAZING scorer, possibly one of the best we've ever seen in the NBA (whether you like the way he plays or not...it's effective, that cannot be denied). But better than Jordan?? Scoring wise, from a perimeter perspective (so not including ATG scorers like KAJ, Malone, and Shaq) the best of the best are Jordan and Kobe. everyone else comes after.

Harden last year in the regular season is the only year he has that can match prime MJ.
