Previously on TNLP, we featured a post where Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant said that Houston Rockets guard James Harden was a top 10 player in the NBA.
It appears that James echoes those sentiments during a recent interview with Comcast Sportsnet in Houston:
For sure. For sure. Last year I got a chance to prove it, I kind of broke out of the shell a little bit. Even though it was my first year [as a starter], I’ve got a lot more to prove. I’ve kind of always been the underdog, always been looked over, so it’s nothing new.
