Houston Rockets James Harden believes he is the best player in the entire NBA. Scottie Pippen reacted to this statement and does not think so. Former Bulls star said that Harden is the best scorer but not the best player.

“The Houston Rockets have been up and down all season. James Harden’s leadership has been questioned over the last two, three years, and they underachieved to me. Even though he is the best scorer in the game, that doesn’t equal championships. You can be the best scorer for 82 games, but you’re gonna be home come postseason.”

“I believe he’s the best scorer in the league. Best player, no. When you talk about the best players in the game, you’re talking about guys that can make their team rise to the occasion. You talk about LeBron James, Giannis, Kawhi, and what he’s been able to do with the Clippers. Those are the great players in our game because they are always going to be in the postseason. “

Over a year ago Scottie Pippen and Tracy McGrady hit the hardwood to demonstrate how an NBA player would go about defending Houston Rockets star James Harden.
