    if you were to start a franchise now, would you rather have 20 year old luka doncic or 20 year old james harden?

    the kid is averaging 30/10/9 and he's only 20 years old... is he top 10 in the league already?

    very curious to see if doncic for the next 10 years will exceed harden's last 10 years (mvp, 6x all-nba including 5x all-nba 1st team, 7x all-star, etc.)

    Very tough choice. If Harden was with Rockets as a 20y old, he would be where he is now at age 24-25 and probably win at least one, if not more rings by the age he is now.

    I would make Doncic 27 and Harden 23.

    Let Doncic tutor Harden.

    Luka might be having greatest sophomore season in the history of nba. However you have to take harden cause you know how good harden is and how durable he is.

    Luka already has a better coach than Harden has ever had

    Luka already has multiple stretch bigs with legitimate size...Harden has yet to have even 1, and he’s been here for 8 seasons

    Luka has athletes around him...Harden continuously has undersized geriatrics

    I dont even understand how a thread can be so much worse than the other Donic thread I just posted in, but there you go. Oh my god. Shut the hell up, its bad enough that we lost, but now we these trash threads. This place is a dumpster fire after a loss.

    Come back to me when Luka is constantly getting double team most of the game and when he has average to garbage shooters around him for like 8 years.

    It depends at which age they each decide they know more than their team's GM.

    Harden at 20 had 2 other stars that held him back so we dont know how good he would have been

    It seems like you don't understand the question being posed. Will Doncic be a better player ages 20-30 than Harden has been the last 10 years. It's not whether Doncic is a better player than Harden is, right now.
