      @Nick Leavitt and im fasho kyrie will never win an NBA MVP award in his lifetime

      @Thomas Oglesby III sure cuz kyire was given the ball in a offense like Dantoni made Harden stats inflated kyire wouldn’t need 15 free throws a game to average 36 ppg

      @Nick Leavitt Kyrie hasn’t done anything in the playoffs in his career outside of Lebron. he not on the same level as Harden as a player and his career doesn’t compare.

      @Thomas Oglesby III harden hasn’t don’t much either he got carried by cp3 against warriors and now we see after cp3 left harden who the better player was in the duo all along

    Dwight deserves it more than Harden or Lillard.

    • Risan

      May 6, 2022 at 12:14 pm

      Lillard has achieved nothing. No mvp no scoring title never lead League in assists no finals appearance no rings. Just a over rated PG with some good playoff series I’ll give him that

      😂😂😂 Dwight is not in the stratosphere of Harden

    Bro as much as I hate harden he is still a top 75 players of all time and in his prime a scorer who can play make. If Russ is top 75 so should harden

    • Risan

      May 6, 2022 at 12:12 pm

      1v1 I would clamp harden and I could score on him easy. He’s not top 75.

    • Jank Foots

      Why did you degrade Russ to have to uplift Harden? Russ has done historic things that no other player has. If you wanted to knock a player on the top 75 you should’ve chose Dame.

    • Russell Westbrook yelling at women and children

      May 6, 2022 at 12:54 pm

      Both are easly top 75

    • Arjun Vivekraj

      May 6, 2022 at 1:42 pm

      @Jank Foots Both have choked in the playoffs that’s why 🤷‍♀️

      @Risan good for you, what team you play for?

    now this is disrespectful

    He has a top 75 resume.

    There’s lot of players from the OG top 50 that don’t belong like Earl Monroe, Nate Thurmond, Dave Bing, Dave DeBusschere.

    • denigster

      May 6, 2022 at 12:24 pm

      lol did you see 1 of them play ^^ so you re rong

    • Carlos Gonzalez

      May 6, 2022 at 12:44 pm

      Earl Monroe & nate Thurmond better check your source

    May 6, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    James harden is a top 75, not top 50.

  7. Matthew Gooch

    May 6, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    Harden might be top 150

    • Wyeth Purkiss

      May 6, 2022 at 12:35 pm

      One of the worst takes ever. He’s clearly top 75 🤦‍♂️, recency bias lmao. You don’t know ball and it shows

    • Matthew Gooch

      May 6, 2022 at 1:06 pm

      @Wyeth Purkiss what you talk about Willis. 🎩🚬🧐 he’s clearly top 75. Bwah ha

  8. Job Acevedo

    May 6, 2022 at 12:21 pm

    Wait a second he was voted top 75? Lol 😂 but Vince and TMac wasn’t? 🤣🤣🤣 Dafaq

    • Jank Foots

      May 6, 2022 at 12:38 pm

      Yeah he’s way better than they were and his resume shows it.

    • Job Acevedo

      May 6, 2022 at 12:45 pm

      @Jank Foots In today league with today rules I’ll take TMac and Vince over Harden. If you old enough to actually watch them play in there prime I’ll take TMac and Vince.

    ESPN a couple years ago: is harden the best offensive player ever??

    ESPN now: …

    • Prodcde Beatz

      May 6, 2022 at 1:09 pm

    This Is getting ridiculous lol

    realistically, alot of the top 50 people should be moved out for the more skilled modern players. But keeping those generations alive in memory is nice, so just take out AD and put in Dwight Howard. AD accomplished nothing except win a ring with LeBron, which could be said for that tattoo Birdman or JR Smith.

  13. Zach Huber

    May 6, 2022 at 12:48 pm

    Forreal tho… Anthony Davis is not top 75, Dwight Howard got robbed

  14. Jacent B

    May 6, 2022 at 1:12 pm

    Never should’ve been on there!

  15. Jawon Lee

    May 6, 2022 at 1:15 pm

    Y’all reaching for having this convo

  16. Jawon Lee

    May 6, 2022 at 1:16 pm

    The hate on harden is absolutely crazy

  17. Elegant

    May 6, 2022 at 1:39 pm

    He literally is getting doubles teamed this whole series passing it out and they miss

  18. Greatest Football Highlights

    May 6, 2022 at 1:59 pm

    He “might” be a top 50 player?? I’m sorry but any list with Harden not in the top 30 shouldn’t be taken seriously.

  19. Praj Bal

    May 6, 2022 at 2:43 pm

    harden should have at least one ring if cp3 didn’t get hurt they lost to the best team ever in basketball

  20. Eldragouiuytôsks

    May 6, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    Lmao hes top 30 stop acting like 1 year change everything he’s a top 75 FOR LIFE

  21. Caleb 2K

    May 6, 2022 at 4:12 pm

    Harden could go scoreless the next 10 playoff games and that wouldn’t change anything….. ESPN YALL can do better this shouldn’t even be a topic

  22. Jonathan Muldrow

    May 6, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    So y’all ask this 4 Harden, but not Lame Lillard or Anthony Street Clothes Davis? Yeah ok.

  23. King

    May 6, 2022 at 5:32 pm

    You are out of your absolute mind if you think Harden is not a top 75 player all time😂😂😂
