    Do you guys foresee anyone else cracking this list again anytime soon? Maybe a healthy Steph next year? Still doesn’t seem real that Beard is up there. :D

    Crazy thing is... if CP3 didn't come back he would've been ahead of Jordan for 2nd overall. I would preferred Harden's personal record instead of 2nd round exit.

    Considering that Tilmans cheapass is not going to get James Harden any help next year, he is definitely going to get this.

    Instead of being a ball hog and chasing meaningless 30 pt game streaks he should focus on trying to not lead the league in Turnovers, playing team basketball and making defense a priority.

    Meaningless?
    No 30 game streak
    and we probably barely make the playoffs
    and guys like you would be b!tching that he should have scored more

    For people that aren’t Artards, this stat is meaningless. All that matters is team turnovers, of which the Rockets do a fantastic job taking care of the ball, by design going through James. Instead maybe our fans need to educate themselves on this game called basketball before they start spewing stupidity across the web? If you can’t understand the team that you watch constantly, I’d hate to imagine the opinions of teams you watch occasionally. Lord almighty.

    I bet Steph’s body breaks down under the burden of having to average 33 or more ppg
