Dwyane Wade says it’s ‘undeniable’ Rockets star James Harden is ‘one of the greatest to ever touch the basketball’
Miami Heat legend and future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade says it’s “undeniable” that Houston Rockets superstar James Harden is “one of the greatest to ever touch the basketball.”
For the third season in a row, Harden is leading the NBA in scoring. The Rockets star is averaging 38.5 points per game.
Wade talked about Harden on the All The Smoke Podcast with former NBA forwards Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson.
.@DwyaneWade on James Harden: “It’s undeniable that he’s one of the greatest to ever touch the basketball…Just the way that he’s able to score the basketball…That’s why he’s getting hate, because we’ve never seen it like this before.” #Rockets https://t.co/PkncEXh5el pic.twitter.com/u7H3aNziyp

Some fans may not enjoy the way he plays, but there’s no doubting Harden’s scoring prowess. He makes scoring 50 points look so easy. The Beard already has five games this season where he has scored at least 50 points for the Rockets, who are fourth in the Western Conference standings with a 19-9 record.
All signs point toward Harden winning his third scoring title. More importantly, with his pal Russell Westbrook next to him, Harden has a shot at winning his first NBA championship this season. For that to happen, the Rockets will have to get through the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. Both LA teams are at the top of the West standings.
Harden is must-see TV. After all, you never know how many points he’s going to drop on any given night.
