What do you mean age should be considered in regards to Kobe? Neither is in their prime and Harden's athleticism benefits him as much as Kobe's experience does(lol no it doesn't but yeah).
Well I was looking a bit beyond just who's better. Kobe's better sure. But for how long?
Dwight has always been a 20 PPG scorer, if he wasn't such a shit free throw shooter he would actually be pretty great on offense.
If Dwight was good on offense he would absolutely dominate, and he doesn't...
His back to the basket game leaves a lot to be desired. He scores a good chunk of his points on uncontested dunks and about 6 points at the foul line (of a possible 10 to 15 lulz).
Westbrook is probably the best defensive point guard in the league, which is saying a lot considering how many great point guards there are in the league right now. He's ability to score is great as well, not to mention he's shown he can be a playmaker this year and two years ago.
Westbrook is great by me until he starts chucking.
You would take Harden over Melo? It is rather close I suppose, but I'd still take Melo as the better scorer for now. Melo is in his prime though while Harden is only 23.
YES! Melo is an idiot. Waiting around for Garnett, fucking idiotic. Among all the other drama he's done in his career. A lot less than others but the dude still is a princess. Plus he's a selfish player.
