    It's not that hard to be unstoppable when a multiple time scoring champ is surrounded by multiple all nba and mvp caliber players.

    James Harden is a great player, but he's just a chucker, who demands the ball, and wants every offensive possession to run through him. That's why he averages the numbers he does, because he has the ball majority of the time. If you gave KD those same luxuries, he would smoke Harden every day of the week, and twice on Sundays.

    KD is the most unstoppable player in the league. The only thing stopping Durant from scoring 70 at night is himself and the Warriors. KD is scoring 28 ppg without even trying to score. Hes a different kind of monster

    KD is unstoppable but he is not nearly in the team to showcase how good he is. He needs to get out of GSW so we can 1. Get some competition back in this league 2. Try to win one more than LBJ without being in a super team.

    It is KD tbh....if not him then Giannis. But KD can give it to you outside, inside, post game, Whatever. Dude is just too tall and fast. Guys that are tall enough to guard him are typically too slow. And guys that are fast enough to guard him are too short. KD literally seems like he scores when he wants. Despite him being hated, can't deny the dude is an insane scorer

    James Harden is AMAZING. GIVE THAT MAN ANOTHER MVP. 🏆, Besides Only MVP that MATTERS is Finals MVP. James Harden is MORE focused on that. First Gotta BEAT the Warriors(Worriers) and This MVP knows that. Not to mention the ONLY Team to go to 7 games with them. THIS MAN IS AMAZING!!!!!

    If KD was truly better, his stats wouldn't be so overwhelmed by Harden's. KD's stats get swamped by Harden's. Imagine what Harden's assist numbers would be if he was dishing to Steph and Klay. Imagine if Harden got the space to operate that KD does by virtue of often having Steph and Klay on the court at the same time (and always at least one of them). Harden owned this season and he did it while missing 3/5 of the starting lineup for a significant chunk of the season.

    Harden and Durant are the best players in the nba right now. They are both incredible but harden is the MVP this year.. They share 1st place in my opinion nevertheless. Lebrons gotten worse on defense and after this horrible season and team effort which was not entirely his fault, idk if this year is the beginning of his decline or the poor team that was assembled for him. Therefore idk where to place him but he is still a top 5. Curry is in there aswell. And the last to make the cut is debatable

    How is this even an argument? Durant is a taller, longer player than Harden. Hes also an elite defender as well just a pure better scorer (he don't need a system like Harden has in Houston revolving around him) Durant is averaging 25pts a game in a loaded GSW which is like players career highs in pts per game LMFAO
