Thanks for the feedback guys.  To be honest, I can care less about opinions about who is better, but you better damn sure back it up with an argument.  You can see in my article that as far as scoring efficiency is concerned, Kobe is better than Harden and it's not really close.

I'm not even sure where that argument came from tbh. Just looking at FG% it's pretty clear Kobe is more efficient. Your shot chart analysis only further proves that.

 

I'm really amazed at how most of these expert analysts even get a job. But I guess if their goal is to create controversy and get article views, they did pretty well haha.

 Kobe has been compared to Jordan over the course of his career...and if Harden is better than Kobe, can we make the same comparison between Harden and Jordan?

These comparisons between guys 10 years or so apart are always flawed.  If I had my choice of Harden or Kobe today to build a team of course you would choose Harden but Kobe is a legend.  In the end Kobe is a legend that came off a great individual season and James Harden is still writing his story and is already on a path to greatness.  Just my take.

I wouldn't take that ugly *** flopping **** with that **** beard over Kobe, ever.

How stupid you have to be to even jokingly say Harden is better.

Harden will not do much in this league. Lebron is owning it right now, and by the time Lebron fades, Paul george or kyrie will be on top. Harden will be like Dominique in Jordans era.

Wow  wow wow wow.

 

 

What's next,  Jeremy Lin is better than Magic Johnson? 

 

 

James Harden to me is one of the most over rated player in the NBA.  I always believed that ever since he had that stupid contract the rockets gave him.   He is the number 2 guy on a team at best.   I cannot believe how much love this guy is getting. Is it because of his stupid beard?  James Harden doesn't play defense. He is a volume shooter and doesn't have many moves like Kobe.  He doesn't show up to games at times.  Kobe always shows up to every game.

 

I dont understand how anybody can even argue that James Harden is better than Kobe.   Heck, he's not even better than Wade.   And I can gaurenteed  you Klay Thompson will be a better player than James Harden.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Kobe has quit on his team in games before. Let's not make out Kobe to be a god or something. He also has faults.

Kobe > Harden, that is all that needs to be discussed in this thread.
