    Why are we gonna keep doing this.

    I don't care about these rankings but lets not pretend that Kawhi has no business being tied with Harden for 4th. They both are amazing players.

    I bet you anything, if you put this to a vote of Spurs fan, they would rank Kawhi 3rd best Spur of the decade, even if he had resigned with the Spurs.

    I agree Kawhi is fine as tied with Harden.

    Just offering the observation that Spurs fans would put Ginobody #1 and Duncan #2 on their team decade list.

    Seems Kawhi is 2 years younger and had the luck in the Playoffs.

    It wasn't luck when he put Lebron on clamps.

    In the end, it's all about championships.

    If Harden had won 2 and Kawhi had 0. Kawhi wouldn't be in the top 5 and Harden would be top 2 or top 3.

    what's the problem?
    In fact Kawhi should be ahead of Harden. He has two titles and two finals MVPs.
    Harden is the only one that has no titles in that list.

    Lebron even admitted KL was the toughest defender he went against that series.

    KD should be #2 easily. When it comes to Curry, I can’t recall another athlete in history who was so one dimensional yet so protected—by his teammates, coaches, the media, and the greater league in general—who is given credit for 100% of his team’s success while having his warts so meticulously glossed over.

    It’s like everybody ever affiliated with professional basketball decided to get in on this one conceit, this one conspiracy to make him the posterboy of the sport. They knew, he was gonna be their gravy train to international success.

    Honestly, just to be on this list is an honor. People really gonna miss Harden when he's gone so appreciate that one of the best ever is wearing a Rocket's uniform and hopefully he can put a championship on his HOF resume.

    You mean the series when Lebron averaged 28/8/4 on 57/52/79 shooting splits?

    Harden is better than him. That's why Harden is tied, if Harden had even won title he might even shoot up to 3. Everyone should notice that the one year Harden had a great cast next to him we had a historic run and almost beat the GOAT team.

    I don't agree, but fair enough. Championships are the most important factor.
