    @Os Trigonum you might need to have a look at this

    James Harden is the only NBA player other than Wilt Chamberlain to score 30-plus points in 20 consecutive games. It’s easy to marvel at any number from Harden’s historic run, but that simple fact emerges from the crowd much like Harden’s absurd 35.7 points-per-game figure emerges from the mass of near-30 averages this season. Yet a closer look only enhances the amazement produced by Harden’s 2018-19 season. Here are five lesser-heralded but equally fascinating facts about Harden’s current run:

    if I didn’t know better, I’d say that looks like part of the media conspiracy

    IIRC, the ringer has always had multiple writers with very strong support for Hargod. On the flip side, they have some pretty annoying podcast teams as well.

    Zach Lowe is a Harden supporter - he's not a gushing homer or anything, but he gives respect where respect is due with Harden's game and criticism where it is also due. That doesn't make him necessarily in line with the hot take era but he is somewhat fair.

    Their podcast team IS super annoying - feels like they picked 4 or 5 random bros off some college campus and told them to talk basketball for a paycheck because we need content, content, content(not valuable content).

    Harden was the second guy who made me feel so easy to score 30 + points. The first one is MJ.

    It's like 5 layups+5 three-point shots +5 free throws per game,as if he could score 30 + points easily.

    nah

    his fairness towards harden is weak and pathetic

    but i stopped listening to him some time ago so the situation may be different now

    for illustration he voted kawhi leonard mvp for 2017

    what a joke this guy is

    yeah hell praise harden somewhat but as soon he is in company of harden haters hell jump in on the hate parade

    Good article. I particular love the various points where "the only other player to do what Harden did" was James Harden.

    This is inaccurate. Lowe might be the fairest NBA writer out there currently.

    At the Ringer Simmons and KOC and House are all big Harden supporters. Some of their smaller time writers as well, can’t think of their names. Though the rest of their staff is pretty much the opposite.

    to me hes the first guy who made me feel so easy to score 40 + points.

    40+ points is now his average game

    eg if they are not fouling him a lot and hes not particularly hot from 3 he still somehow manages to score 40+ at the end lol

    I have listened to Lowe for 3years and he has always been mostly positive about Harden and has been highly positive about the Rockets the last 2years.
