    James Harden is amazing to watch. He keeps scoring points. How long do you think it will take for him to join 30,000 points club?

    All I know is just a few years ago he wasn’t on the top 250 list. He has bum rushed up through it like crazy.

    Harden's PPG has gone up almost every season of his career.

    The main factor limiting his total points scored will be injuries or lockout-shortened seasons. Or maybe the load management trend takes over and even Harden starts doing it in a couple years.

    It's absolutely crazy to think that Harden could suffer a significant drop-off in his scoring numbers and still average over 30 a game and lead the league.
