You're just following a delusional crowd who have no clue about the nuances of the game because by this logic Phil Jackson is overrated.

On the James harden 6th man front, a lot of his success simply has to do with opportunity. I know that's probably not how the winner of the award is decided, but I thought it was just something to point out. Most of us kinda knew he was capable of this even playing alongside Westbrook and Durant in OKC.

What people are forgetting about Harden is that he only averages like 6 more minutes a game than he did last year.
