Through eight games, he is averaging nearly 31 points, eight rebounds and 13 assists per game. He has tied a record with Oscar Robertson and Nate Archibald by getting 30+ points and 12+ assist in four straight games.
He isn’t just chucking up shots either, he’s shooting 50 percent from the field. Harden has been flourishing since being moved to the point guard position.

Now that Harden is setting up teammates better than anyone else and currently leads the league in assists, who is the league’s best player at his position?
“Best point guard or best player?” Harden responded when asked.

He was initially asked who is the best player at his position but maybe Harden asked “best point guard or best player?” on purpose because he knew what was coming next. James Harden wanted the world to know that he feels he is the best overall player.
With the type of numbers he’s putting up, it’s hard to disagree. This isn’t the first time James Harden has came out to say this. He’s stated it multiple times.
James Harden is oozing with confidence. It’s obvious to see why based on the way he’s been playing ever since he’s put on a Houston Rockets uniform. It’s still the beginning of the season but James Harden is balling out of control and we’ll just have to wait and see if he can keep it up.
