Because the fact is harden is better 3 pts shooter than mj, the fact is harden is better free throw shooter than mj, the fact is harden is most fouled than mj, the fact is harden is strong to do that kind of job everynight, the fact is james harden is better passer than mj, its simple harden is better offensively than MJ.

Jordan scored, played defense, and is a proven winner. Harden can score, plays no defense and has yet to get a ring. Moral of the story, Jordan would shut Harden down

Luv my boi Harden, but MJ was not only a better ball player overall but he was a much better scorer. Jordan was more elusive, had way more moves, was just as good of if not a better shooter, smarter (that’s saying a lot bc Harden’s bball iq is off the charts) and was able to demoralize anyone defending him bc you could play perfect defense and he’d still score rather effortlessly. Cain is obnoxious but he also makes a very good point in that MJ scored when it was a lot harder to score.

Whether you like it or not, you can’t debate the fact that hardens a top 5 scorer of all time. Kobe, kd, harden, mj and the fifth player is up to debate imo.

The only player EVER to rival Jordan in scoring is Kevin Durant and this is coming from a Lebron fan, looking at Jordan, KD, and Harden’s ppg is cool but when you begin to look at all 3 of their fg% Harden is not up to par especially when you factor the percentage of his points come from the free throw line and how he gets to the free throw line it’s just not on the same range as the other two 🤷🏾‍♂️

James Harden has more tools, is more creative, and can handle the ball much much better. He has reached a higher level offensively than Jordan has. That doesn't mean Jordan is not a better scorer, but we have to agree that James is much more talented offensively.

Jordan played in an era where most people lacked the skill of basketball.. too many talents today , now anybody can shoot the three ball which makes it difficult to compete .

MJ could not shoot 3's, stop it, he only had one good year from deep and it was in the one season where the NBA made the line shorter, MJ even went to one 3 point contest and his performance is still to this day one of the worst of all time

James Harden plays in a league with no big man in the paint. If you beat your man you are at the rim. Plus Harden gets every call until the playoffs start. Jordan was also playing the best perimeter defense in the league.
Jerald Vincent Zumel
Mike was a scoring champ 10x, meaning nobody could stop him from scoring for 10 seasons. Let that sink in.

Jordan is quickly becoming the most Underrated player Ever. Now even Harden is a better scorer than Jordan................................right? LOL!!! Let's look at the Facts - Scoring Titles: Jordan -10 vs harden - 2 kobe - 2 shaq - 2 westbrook - 2 lebron - 1 curry -1 So Jordan has as many Scoring Titles all by himself as all 6 of those players have COMBINED!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!

Master Spade that just shows how trash the competition was in MJ’s day... Harden would average 2000ppg if half the starters he played against were plumbers 😂

Amazing hoe Daryl said a man who hasn't made the NBA Finals as a leader can be better than a guy who led his team to 6 finals. Harden has lost to GS how many times now its hard to keep count.. Yes MJ lost to The Pistons but they eventually got past them. Rockets would still lose to the Current Warriors if they faced them in a seven game series. Harden is a regular season Star not Playoffs. Yes he gets some good numbers in the playoffs but as long as you don't have the right team or chemistry you wasting away your career. He will win MVP's and not rings.

James Harden is the best of what a six man can ever be: just he won't be able to lead a team to the win because he lacks that "IT" that makes real superstars. I see in his eyes, still he seek approval instead of seeking and TAKING it, with the recognition he may should deserve, IF he would be able to do so. As Max said "if James Harden hits his shots when it mattered most". And he doesn't, because he is more interested in show how bad his eyes were, instead of playing through it and win, as Kobe did with his broken fingers, as MJ didi with his flu, as Hakeem did many times without having eat during Ramadan. He was seeking excuses while still in the game, ofc he is not able to win. No said for being better than Mike. Come on, don't joke, Mike was absurd, as scorer and as clutch scorer.

calling harden a superstar is absurd.. getting away with tons of steps to score..

Last year, Harden averaged 30+ points in the playoffs for the first time in his career at 31.6 ppg (.413 fg%). MJ averages 33.4 ppg (.487 fg%) for his entire postseason career, only missing the 30+ mark during his rookie year by a few decimals.
