I agree. Every advanced stat we throw out there has its flaws. For example, even TS% has its flaws. My issue is that looking at the breadth of the stats, data, and narrative, Harden doesnt have that great of an argument. He is great in certain efficiency categories, but in many (like TS%) is lower than Lebron. LeBron quite honestly is the MVP going simply by advanced stats and influence on the team. Westbrook, is MVP based on traditional stats, and stats that promote usage rate, and in narrative…he is also the closest person to Lebron in terms of impact on the teams production. Harden having a 1.6 on/off split is ridiculous.
