Nick thinks James Harden is a Top 15 player in the NBA right now — forget that his 2011-2012 numbers are almost identical to Kevin Martin, who didn’t even have his best season last year.
Nick clearly is leaning on some dead brain cells for that take.
While I do believe Harden upgrades the Rockets’ roster, he may not be a Top 25 player, even … or is he?
