James Harden has been getting better and better with each game. at the moment, he is playing at a level only seen by Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. However, that does not mean the Golden State Warriors view him as a threat. On the contrary, they are much more concerned about LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.
NBA expert Chris Broussard came forward to talk about Harden’s recent development. He said that the Houston Rockets star has been performing at MVP level so far this season. If he continues to play at this level, he will win the award for the second time in a row.
Over the course of the past few games, Harden has scored more than 40 points at each game. He also has an impressive number of 89 assists in his last ten games. This is something that has been done by only Bryant and Jordan in the history of the NBA. However, Broussard said that there is only one man who can stop the Warriors winning a third straight NBA title, and that man is James. He shared:
“What Harden is doing is incredible. They’ve won ten of their last 11. Talking about statistics, he’s matched Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, as the only player in the last 30 years to score over 400 points in ten straight games. He’s playing out of this world. If Chris Paul continues to go in and out of the lineup due to injury, he’s got a great chance of leading the league in scoring and assists. That being said, there’s only one person in the Western Conference who knows what it takes to beat Golden State, and has proven he can lead a team to the Championship, and that’s LeBron James. The team to beat in the West outside of Golden State is the Los Angeles Lakers.”
We hope to see the Lakers win the championship title in the following few years!
