Daryl Morey: “It’s just factual that James Harden is a better scorer than Michael Jordan…You give James Harden the ball and before you’re giving up the ball how many points do you generate, which is how you should measure offense, James Harden is by far #1 in NBA history.”
Well, that answers the question. The GOAT is neither MJ or LeBron. The GOAT has actually been right under our noses the whole time. It’s none other than Houston’s very own SG/Dynamo Owner, James Harden. Love it.
Now, I get the haters will argue:
Championships: MJ 6, LeBron 3 and Harden 0;
League MVP: MJ 5, LeBron 4 and Harden 1;
Points per game: MJ 30.1, LeBron 27.2 and Harden 24.3;
Rebounds per game: MJ 6.2, LeBron 7.4 and Harden 5.2;
Steals per game: MJ 2.3, LeBron 1.6 and Harden 1.6; and
Assists per game: MJ 5.3, LeBron 7.2 and Harden 6.2.
But let me ask you this to you haters, did you see MJ or LeBron in the Bahamas handing out thousands of dollars to people in need?
Because while MJ was gambling/golfing and LeBron out celebrating #TacooooooTuesday, this is what the real GOAT was up to. The assists that really matters, the assists that makes you the GOAT. Assisting the less fortunate, assisting those who are in need, assisting a town that could use a financial boost. That’s what makes someone the GOAT and that’s why he’s James “GOAT” Harden.
PS: Daryl, while I have you here, will you please release your table tennis footage?
It’s been over two months, Daryl. I’m starting to hear rumors the tape, and more importantly the moves, don’t exist.
