Harden better than Dwight? This is up for debate?
Harden had a breakout year last year with the Rockets, in comparison to his past seasons where he may have been greater hindered by two other spectacular players. All of a sudden, he is a superstar franchise center piece? I see a lot of potential for the dude, but I just don't see the argument for being better than D12.
D12 averages more points, rebounds and blocks over his career than Harden has. I mean, D12 gobbled up more rebounds and more blocks coming back from an injury last year than Harden did, while only averaging ~8 less points with Kobe Bryant on his team. A fully healthy Dwight Howard? Please.
I agree that a key part of being a successful franchise player is being able to hit key free throws -- but it isn't the only piece.
