    Who is the better player- Harden or Curry

    Kinda confused as to why Harden has been getting so much hate when he appears to be a superior player to curry sans his acting. I'll be the first to tell you that I hate harden because he's not likeable. But I feel like Curry at this point, is below him. Look at what harden is doing vs. what curry is doing.

    With that being said, I am asking who is the better NBA player: Harden or Curry




    WOJ, ANNOUNCE LEBRON TO THE BUCKS! It's PAST DEC 15 FOR CHRIST SAKE!

    Like Donny Trump is doing for America after a brutal 8 years, I am making PSD Great Again One Post at a time, doe!!

    One Big A-- (8 year) Mistake America. Coincidence? I think not.

    I selected Harden, only because he has shown he can literally do everything for a winning team. But they are not worth an in depth argument to me.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    He can't lead a team to the Finals or put up impressive post season numbers. His game falls off a cliff when a team schemes for him, specifically his shooting, so I'd start there. 41% FG and 31%3pt his last 3 playoffs during his MVP runs. Yikes.

    He has also beasted under that same criteria. I mostly pick Harden because we haven't seen Curry lead teams to anything bad or good. He is amazing, but simply part of the machine. Harden IS the machine for his team most of the time.

    Again, not worth the fight, but Curry does indeed get hurt for having SO much help.

    LOL what? You have not seen Curry lead his teams to anything bad or good? I do not follow this statement. What does it mean when you lead your team to back to back 70 win average seasons and take down a title as the teams sole superstar? "MEH, it's neither here nor there"?

    It's easy to lead studs to wins (Curry had all NBA players with him all along his winning years). It's not as easy to be your teams entire offense. Again, I am penalizing Curry for enjoying the luxury of minimized responsibility for long periods of time. I struggle ranking a player who is sheltered with talent to much of a degree, that's all.

    Look come playoff time, I would probably edge to Curry, but it's a long season with 82 games first.

    It's hard to evaluate Curry because of the KD signing. If Steph wanted a legacy, he should have pushed for the funds to be allocated elsewhere in building a more sustainable team. Now he's likely facing KD on a max and seeing Klay, Dray leave for bigger deals in addition to the role players that have already left.

    It's Curry. The biggest argument against Curry is his playoff performances and Harden's are even worse.

    In the playoffs the last 3 years Harden's Free Throw Rate has fallen from .533 regular season to .417. His TS% from .618% to .560%. His Pts per 100 possessions from 41.0 to 38.0.

    In the playoffs his efficiency, his scoring volume and his ability to get to the line all fall. If he could do those things in the playoffs like he could in the regular season, he'd have a strong case as being better.

    Exactly it is Curry but even if he isn't as efficient in the playoffs he still gets the job done

    Didn't have to think much there.

    Eh Hawk those runs in particular that I mentioned Curry played with one offensive star, and that guy is incapable of creating any offense for others, or even for himself. There has rarely been a star as focused on offensively as Curry, and that has maintained for the most part with KD as well. It's a big reason why KD has seen the jump in playoff ease/performances that he has, HIS life is what saw the big change. And no player prior to KD sniffs anything remotely close to what CP provides them offensively. Yet come playoff time for Harden, once again, we got diminished assist:to ratio, diminished FT rate, and diminished shooting to the tune of 41% FG and 29.9% on high volume 3pt shooting. It's an issue. A major one.

    I do agree that Harden has had a bigger role for Houston in the regular season since KD joined GS, and that he performs great in that role. It just doesn't last once teams actually attempt to scheme for him. And we know that will undoubtedly be the case again this season.
