Rockets guard James Harden says he is best basketball player alive
Harden said he hasn't reached his potential and is nowhere where he wants to be basketball-wise.
Jackson : Bottom line, you are on this team and a lot of players aren’t, but in your mind, who is the best basketball player alive right now?
Scoop: That’s what I was about to say, “including you.” You made that sound like it was an easy answer.
Harden: It is. Myself.
Harden averaged 25.4 points, 6.1 assists and 4.7 rebounds a game last season, earning first-team All-NBA honors. He is also vying for a spot on the U.S. men's basketball team, which starts the FIBA World Cup in Spain at the end of the month.
