James Harden and Stephen Curry have arguably been the best scorers in the NBA for the past decade along with Kevin Durant. Curry and Harden also are leading three-point scorers in the league, and the Warriors star has hit the most threes in the history of the NBA.

Recently a stat came out in which it was shown that Stephen Curry, James Harden, and Buddy Hield are the leading three-point scorers in the NBA since 2017. According to StatMuse: Most 3-pointers since 2017: 1,524 — Stephen Curry 1,473 — James Harden 1,417 — Buddy Hield

After seeing the word elite being used in the post by the account, Fans on Twitter were all over it. They believed that Harden isn’t an efficient shooter like Curry, which is right because in his Houston days Harden shot the ball a lot more than Curry. Here are some of the best responses by the fans on Twitter after seeing this stat.

James Harden and Stephen Curry were drafted in the same year

Even though Curry and Harden were drafted together, their careers have been very different. Harden started off as a bench player in OKC before he became the face of the franchise in Houston.

Both Curry and Harden have been league MVPs, but the thing that helps Curry stand out is that he is a 4-time NBA Champion. The team that Curry has had certainly played a huge factor, but Harden’s playoff struggles have brought his reputation down in the league. He still has an opportunity to win the title, and hopefully, he will win it with the 76ers.
