Is Michael Jordan the greatest basketball player of all-time? Yes, he sure is.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, we can save our anger that inevitably would be directed at Daryl Morey by Bulls fans.
In a recent interview appearance on Selfmade (via YouTube), Morey became the latest person to argue that a current NBA player is better than Jordan.
"It's just factual that James Harden is a better scorer than Michael Jordan," Morey said. "You give James Harden the ball, and before you're giving up the ball how many points do you generate, which is how you should measure offense, James Harden is by far No. 1 in NBA history."
Talk about a hot take. Let's review some numbers:
-Jordan averaged 30.1 points per game in 15 seasons; Harden has averaged 24.3 points in his 10 NBA seasons. However, Harden was the third option behind Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook for three seasons before the Rockets acquired him.
