I know it's controversial but it has to be said. Chris Paul is better than James Harden

    I don't like it when CP3 and Harden intentionally take turns playing point when they are both in the floor. Just looks awkward without more defined roles. One of them becomes less effective. I think CP3 needs to bring the ball down 70% of the time since he is a better pg.

    CP3 was better than Harden just a week ago, now he's washed up & a horrible fit on this team. Wow.

    It's close, I know that much. James complete lack of defense has to penalize him in some fashion in terms of his overall basketball rating. Chris Paul is a different kind of offensive player, maybe not as successful as Harden, but much more of a traditional point guard so that's not expected. He also plays tenacious defense on the reg. That has to take him up a notch or two.

    It's much closer than some are willing to admit. Regardless, they're both hall of fame players so who is better is trivial at this point.

    Exactly.

    We've seen harden get a few wins by himself the least few years.

    And keep the rockets competitive with them and give us a shot late in games that we didn't win.

    I love cp3 always have he's one of the best players in the league.

    But harden is a true MVP transcendent player I really don't understand why ppl seem so reluctant or bothered by this fact.

    Go watch other NBA teams and their best players.

    The only guy on Hardens level are Lebron KD Steph and Kawi.

    Bump since this is apparently an argument on this board.

    Harden >>> Paul. That doesn't take away from how godly Paul is, it's just that Harden is the better talent.

    I don't see why you are bothered by the fact Steph should not be listed in those group of players. Steph is no way on Hardens level.
