    Took him out on a potentially record setting day. Wow..

    Just came here to hate on the man. He is nothing but empty buckets with no finals appearance without him on the bench. He shoots at a shitty percentage and gets 14 bullshit free throws a game, he doesn't play defense and he has no mid-range.....but hey, he scores a whole lot.

    someone please make a video side by side james' 60 in 31mins vs klay's 60 in 29mins
    it will be something like this:
    james : repeated frames of free throws, draw fouls, step back.
    klays: shooting from anywhere on the court

    James Harden has mastered the game of basketball. Period. Every aspect of it. He controls the tempo for BOTH teams. Bro even uses the rules to his advantage. That’s why he gets those foul calls. Even the refs give him benefit of the doubt.

    The Rockets will never win a NBA Championship again as long as they have a one man show it takes a whole team effort to win a title like the old Houston Rockets did of the 90's you got one guy seeing how much he can score in a game very unbalance team that is not the way u do it.

    Harden travels and flops for fouls so much. Slow the vid down at 1 minute and tell me that's not 3 steps. This is why the ratings for the NBA are down.

    i predict that james harden will eventually beat kobe's record 81 points eventually in his career

  • Cory Robert
    Cory Robert 11 days ago

    I’m say it if Harden plays the 4th then Kobe’s 81 is always on the line to be broken as much as I don’t want it to happen it just might.
    Don’t be mad at me fellow Kobeknights

    Taken from SB Nation.
    "Harden’s peak is better than Bryant ever was, but most of you aren’t ready for that discussion yet. So let’s just pick apart Bryant’s best season, which was the second-highest scoring one of the last two decades, aside from Harden’s season last year.
    In 2006, Bryant averaged 35.4 points per game, which is extremely good. His points came on 27 shots per game of which he made 45 percent. He took nearly seven threes and made 35 percent of those, and made 85 percent of his 10 free throws. He also had five assists, five rebounds and two steals.
    Through 19 games, Harden is averaging 38.9 points per game on 24 shots. That’s three fewer attempts! He’s also shooting 45 percent from the field, and 35 percent from three, but taking 14 free throws and making 87 percent of those. Harden’s also averaging eights assists, six rebounds and two steals.
    For the more intricate numbers followers, Harden’s assist percentage is 14 percent higher than Bryant’s was, his PER is 29.8 to Bryant’s 28.0, his win share per 48 minutes is .302 to Bryant’s .224, and his true shooting percentage is .64 compared to Bryant’s .559."

  • Devvv

    Tbh, a couple guys could've broken the 81 if they weren't blowing their opponents. Curry, Klay, Harden could've gotten it if they chased scoring records like Booker did with his 70 back then. Kobe did it because it was a necessity as well. Like how Curry never just jacks 3s to pile up the 3pt record and only got it when the games are close. That's what's really stopping them instead of actual skill.

    Save it….regular season MVP means nothing. Looks unstoppable with the no touch rules. Maybe the NBA needs to go back to old school style and see if that works. Not being able to hand check looks ridiculous. College is rougher than the NBA.

    What was his FG% ? Sixty points is great but not if your percentage isn’t good to match.

    With all the fouls called for harden, i would think teams would try to just really foul harden hard. Hack the beard until he bleeds.

    So he was on his way to getting 80 Points, maybe even break Kobe's 81 record.

    How do you make your team better if you average 3 assist a game and you dont pass the ball or make others better this player garbage

    • aola wili

      All you have to do is WATCH the games to understand that harden is GREAT and the media only wants to portray his “travels” and “flops”

  • VwWwWwWwWwW
    VwWwWwWwWwW 12 days ago

    158 points is crazy. The rules and pace make it so much easier to score now than it used to be. I definitely don't want to see an 80-82 score but I don't want defense to go away either.

      Haven’t see anyone score at will like this in a long while, since probably Kobe. Dude is almost unstoppable.
