    Harden is currently in 3rd with 25. One more and he ties Elvin Hayes for 2nd. He's only 7 away from passing Hakeem Olajuwon, and he's only been a member of the Rockets for 4 seasons. Pretty amazing.

    Correction... he's only 7 away from a tie with Hakeem. 8 away from passing him.

    It's really just the turnovers that need to go down. He's still the Beard. A summer of Olympic ball will have him playing like and MVP again next season.

    Not surprising, Harden is a way better offensive player than Hakeem.

    WOW. If you replaced Olajuwon with Harden, the Rockets would have won 5 championships in a row.

    (Sorry, I couldn't help but piled on. Impressive stat. Also another example of how interpreting stats is complicated.]

    That may be true, but is irrelevant to my post.

    Not in the playoffs and not this year.

    Also Hakeem didn't do it while "resting" on defense. I wonder what kind of offensive numbers he would put up if he "roamed" on defense instead of being a top 2 defensive player of all time.
