Its crazy what he is doing right now, I am speechless.
Now, granted, the old argument is to cut down who he's put up these numbers against and with all due respect to Detroit, Atlanta, and Portland... the Hawks are the only playoff team in that discussion (and they might not even be an 8 seed in the West). The revamped, young and exciting Trail Blazers put an L in Harden's column, but regardless, he's still putting up 35.3 points, 6.3 boards, and 6.3 assists to start the season.
How far will the points drop?
Because I gotta believe, at 38ish minutes a night, he's gonna continue to put up the secondary numbers. So how long can he score over 30 per game? And when are the nearly 5 turnovers per game gonna catch up to him?
Aside from an 8-for-24 game against the Blazers, Harden's scorching the net this season. Easily over 50% at 23 attempts per night from everywhere on the floor. That's Jordan-like.
(while we're on the subject, Jeremy Lin is on a tear too: 15 points, 7 dimes, 6 boards, 2 steals per game.)
