he's already a top-20 guy, might be top-10 by the end of the year
I keep having the same thought.
The guy is just unusually talented.
I think he's just been slightly slower than his competition but not too slow his entire life, so his whole game evolved on having counters upon counters and fakes for everything. If there's one thing that makes him special to me, it's gotta be functional basketball IQ.
Not that Rajon Rondo "coach on the floor" basketball IQ, but a combination of the Jordan and LeBron type where he can both outmaneuver and outpredict the movements of not only his individual matchup, but also read the opposing team's rotations like an open book. Harden also has this to an extent, but he also has a little too much Rondo or Chris Paul in him where he constantly tries to "game the game" which holds him back significantly.
We might be watching the early stages of the career of the dude with the GOAT BBIQ when it's all said and done. I'm loving the ride. Pause.
