Right now, James Harden is absolutely killing it on the basketball floor as he has scored 30+ in 27-straight games, which is now just 4 games shy of tying Wilt Chamberlain’s 2nd-longest career streak of consecutive 30-point games.
“Well, I think he has to do what he has to do in order for his team to win,” Bryant said in an interview with ESPN’s The Jump. “And there’s certain levels to it. So, there’s the style of play in which he’s using, which I’m not a fan of in terms of winning championships. I don’t think that style’s ever gonna win championships.”
Harden plays iso-heavy ball in the Houston Rockets offense, but it works for the team as they continue to win.
“But at the same time, you have to keep your team’s head above water to win games,” Bryant said. “So, you have to do what you have to do to win games. And he’s doing it.”
When told of Bryant’s comments, Harden agreed.
“I mean, I have to be ball dominant just because we have injuries,” explained Harden. “We had injuries throughout the course of the year, but when we get Chris [Paul] in a rhythm and Eric [Gordon] back and get our full roster, we got multiple guys that can make plays, multiple guys that can dominate the ball.”
