Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden said that he thinks he is probably the best player in the NBA right now.
In an interview that may give NFL fans Richard Sherman vibes, Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden said that he is the best player in the NBA.
Amar’e Stoudemire buy out – New York Knicks power forward pushing for buy-out
Goran Dragic trade – Phoenix Suns want first-round pick in return for point guard
Jeremy Lin – Houston Rockets to pursue Los Angeles Lakers point guard in free agency
Harden answered, “Probably me.” Harden is arguably the frontrunner for the NBA MVP award right now as he is leading the league in scoring with 27.4 points per game while also averaging 6.7 rebounds and 6.8 assists, showing off his versatility despite being a shooting guard.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have got to be kicking themselves for trading Harden right now as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have proven to be the only consistently reliable players on the team.
Although he is having the best season of his career, the 25-year-old star has more to prove in the playoffs before challenging LeBron James and Durant for the title of “best player in the NBA.”
