Over the course of the 2020-21 season, James Harden has adjusted his game to fit his role with the Brooklyn Nets, which is to be a playmaking point guard next to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. He has shifted his game seamlessly to fit with his two co-stars and sacrificed some of his own scoring for the benefit of the team.
However, there's no doubt that James Harden can score if the need arises, and we have seen his scoring exploits during his Houston Rockets days. He was an elite volume scorer, while also being a capable playmaker to boot. It was James Harden's scoring that allowed the Houston Rockets to be a good team year after year and be competitive in the postseason.
