    Let's keep in mind:

    Harden wan't a full time starter until he Turned 23.
    HE most likely has the lowest catch and shoot opportunities in the top 15.... (except Kobe probably)
    His shots are heavily contested.

    Congrats to the beard. Kobe, you're next.

    And most of his threes are contested unlike steph, Klay, Allen and other modern day greats. He is the one creating his shot which gives opposing defenses better chance of making it harder looks with more time unlike him coming off picks as a catch and shooter

    At the
    At rate he's making them, he'll be top 10 all time by the end of the season. (4.5×47=212; 1788+212=2,000)

    Harden definitely has lower C&S opportunities than Kobe. Kobe like MJ, is a wing scorer and does play off the ball about 50% of the time in non-clutch times. Harden is more like Magic and Lebron, who are primary ball handlers with very low assist percentage. Nobody ever shoots three like Harden does, this is just fact.

    But, but, but...I thought he only flops and shoots FTs. People on the internet say it, "so it must be true."

    "Somehow harden got fouled"

    The most used joke in the basketball comments.

    Not impressed, you see this at my local YMCA SFSW (Short,fat,slow, white) over 50 division league every day. Y’all are easily impressed.

    Those "leaders" are going to all get completely blown out of the water within the next 5 or so seasons with the rates players are hitting 3's at today.

    Your average joe shooter will have 2000 3's in their careers. Stars like Harden and Curry banging down 4-5 three's per game will obliterate that current list in the next 3 seasons or so. .

    Just wait till we get a rookie star shooter who comes in the league at 19 banging 4+ 3's down, they'll wind up with 5000 made 3's by the time they retire, making shootings "gods" like Ray Allen look like nothing.

    If he maintains >36% for threes, he can shoot everytime from there for all I care.

    .36 x 3 = 52% from 2pts
