Harden's career WS/48 rate is 8th among active players in the NBA right now (behind LeBron, Paul, Duncan, Dirk, Durant, Wade, and Ginobili). Has struggled in the playoffs for the last two seasons as a #1 option, but he's a really good player overall. His normally great offensive efficiency alone makes the Rockets a good team.
