James is a good player but there are few that can be a legitimate #1 player on a team and carry a team

Here are some stats of Joe Johnson (his best year) and they are eerily similar

FG % 41.4
3 pt FG% 0.381
FT %0.748
Rebs 4.2
Assists 4.4
Steals 1.0
Pts 25.0


James like Joe Johnson is a high volume shooter and drastically loses his efficiency once he is a #1 option. I am not saying Harden will NEVER get there but as of now he is not a legitimate #1 and has not shown to elevate his team mates play.

Thoughts Clutchfans?

Personally, I'm thrilled the Rockets have Harden as a #1 option.

Joe Johnson's best year ≠ Harden this year.

This is not going to be Harden's best year as a rocket. He's still learning and adapting to his top dog position. I say reassess after 3-4 years when he's in his prime (if we don't get a superior star).

So JJ's best statistical season is similar to Harden's 1st season as a number one guy when he is only 23 years old. Yeah I'm happy to have Harden.

#1 Option is overrated any ways.

Get another perennial all-star or even two more and it won't even matter any more whose the #1 option or the #2 option.

Great analysis. 5 stars. Harden is better off the bench.

Stan "so now he improves to the bench". everyone laughed left Morey embarrassed.

Better to throw up a bad shot than make a bad pass.

McHale grabbed Lowry and pulled him back toward a time out huddle, with Lowry reacting so angrily he was restrained by teammates.

Just don’t play me two minutes, sit me the whole game and yell at everything I do.

Bet the guy that started this thread has no problem with Lin being the #1 option.

Harden TS% is 0.590 to 0.558. If look all advance stat, pretty much Harden has better numbers across the board.

Worst thread ever. He's only 23 years old and he will only get better. And he's in his first year as the number 1 option. 0 star thread WON'T READ AGAIN.
Wait until he's 25 or 28. Peace.

lay-off the ****. we talking harden here. not anyone. JJ to harden comparison is out of whack. harden all day including wednesday. classic knee-jerk thread.

well, i think most are expecting this after the loosing streak. guess no one is immune against criticisms on the rockets org.
