Skip Bayless breaks downs why Kevin Durant is better than James Harden & Kyrie | NBA | UNDISPUTED
The Brooklyn Nets have seen all 3 of their stars playing well at different points this season, and James Harden even played himself into the MVP conversation before dealing with a hamstring injury. While Kevin Durant might be the most accomplished of the Nets’ big 3, he also has missed plenty of games with his own injuries. Kyrie Irving has been the healthiest of the 3 as Brooklyn currently sits tied with the 76ers for the 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Hear who Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe believe is the best player on the Nets.

      @The Nation yes lebron is the best the last 18 years

    • Elijah

      Yes, KD is a the best of the three. That’s not a knock on Harden nor Kyrie though , It’s a compliment to KD because WE ALL know how great Kyrie & Harden are 🗣 !!!

    KD is the most efficient.. Unpopular opinion: Harden is their best player. Kyrie: most skilled.

  • Kendal Takeshita
    Kendal Takeshita

    People who talk about KD not having a 50 point triple double is not a good argument. Let's face it, no one cares about defense in the regular season. James Harden gets worse in the playoffs while KD gets better. I won't deny that Harden can pass and dribble better but I would pick KD anyday

  • Ryan Bishop
    Ryan Bishop

    KD is a SF, he shouldn't be nor have to "facilitate" an offense. Let's just make that clear. And KD makes it easy for them because of how dangerous he is. KD is better than Kyrie and Harden.

  • Lone Wolf NWJ
    Lone Wolf NWJ

    Shannon Sharpe Description is accurate

  • xx1j

    James Harden should've been a 4x League MVP right now, so he's better and is more meaningful than KD's 2 rings

  • Mufuh Njoh
    Mufuh Njoh

    Shannon is Jealous of KD

  • Jalenciaga

    We don’t need this, we know KD is better

    No sh*t. Of course KD is better. Why is this even being broken down 😂

    Because he’s 7-ft tall, next needless discussion

  • Jackson Beamon

    🤷🏾 Why does skip act as if KD only played 3 years in GS and that's his career He just glosses over OKC days

  • Carlos Barillas
    Carlos Barillas

    I don’t think anyone disagrees with this. It’s KD’s team

  • SugarRay2

    KD is the beat player on the Nets but, Harden is the better playmaker and leader!

  • Mathew Zalusky
    Mathew Zalusky

    Disagree with Shannon here. The only way Harden has a chance at a Finals MVP with Brooklyn is if KD misses time in the Finals

  • Vking P

    Why people don’t understand Harden has the most impact for the nets. He’s the key for them to win this year. Only Max Kellerman and Shannon understand it😂

  • will liam

    A 3-point shot is harder to score but EASIER to take. These guys all doing long shots because they find it harder to take a closer shot. So it's a toss up whether they really clutch or great

    Give kd prime dwade and Chris Bosh and send lebron to okc with westbrook and we’ll see.

    Nets were literally blowing teams out before the harden trade lol. KD and kyrie just didn’t play back to backs.

    • MurkyHyperion35

      They were 5-6 before the harden trade

  • Andy

    Kyrie isn't even the most clutch player. KD is still more clutch. Harden and KD is better than Kyrie at everything. That's why every team Kyrie led had sucked.

  • SuperRoloTomasi

    Head case at point Glass Joe I mean Durant And You know Hardens contracts end after the first round so....

  • orancoo

    Kyrie has been the most clutch on every team he has played for Shay Shay.

    I agree with Shannon, KD the best, Harden the most valuable to their team!

    Harden is the key because he is the QB of their offense. He is the facilitator!

    KD averaged 33 against Bron in the Finals before steph and Klay 👀 Shannon does know that he couldve found that out with a click of a button right on google right. Hes always hating on KD

  • Michael Campbell
    Michael Campbell

    I agree with Skip, and Kevin Durant is fire, and can shoot with the best of them. Kevin Durant didn't have no support with out of James Harden and Russell Westbrook on Oklahoma team. Warriors lost brought Kevin Durant to the Warriors and they won and he was the MVP. Stephen Curry can't carry a team to a championship win, he's need other shooters around him.

  • retro331

    Who is thinking James Harden is even in that conversation? Hes decent, not super. Compared to kyrie and KD they are just delusional

  • SA 826

    Boy every time Skip talk about KD he always bring up that KD made that shot in Game 3 in back 2 back Finals. Like find something else to say about KD🤣

    • Sh7ncho

      Dagger threes are overrated. Skip is trying to create a narrative that lebron was full of hope, that he felt like he had a chance to win, but after that one single three pointer of kd he bursted out in tears, never saw a chance of winning a single game or a series in his career.

  • Brick Lord

    Why does skip continue to make excuses for durant dude joined the warriors to guarantee a ring he is a bum he is scared tired of ppl talking bad about Westbrook he is warriors he not scared to go against the best

  • god complexion

    Skip is the least VALUABLE person on his show and I'm adding the girl ...

  • grandmaster3211

    Kd is not better. Think about it, Kd has had an mvp point guard his whole career. He never had to dictate a team, just comes in iso and score. You can't be better than someone that averaged a triple double, changed the game, and best scorer and passer combination the nba has seen in harden. He's always hurt in his career at some point, so he can't back it up.

  • MastermindRell

    agree with sharpe.without harden will be suspect

  • GymHustle

    I've seen enough playoff Harden to know that in terms of importance it's: KD 1st, Kyrie 2nd, and Harden 3rd

    • GymHustle

      @Ryan Baumgart It doesn't matter who I think is the best player. 1. Harden was the Franchise player, not a old pg. 2. CP3 wasn't w Harden his whole career so let's stop looking for ppl to blame for Hardens disasters.

    • Ryan Baumgart
      Ryan Baumgart

      @GymHustle but you say cp3 was the best player. If that's the case you can't blame harden

    • GymHustle

      @Ryan Baumgart Yes when your best player game drops off in the playoffs he's not a clutch player... what is so difficult to understand. And let's not act as though that is the only yr that we're talking about. Harden has not just loss in the biggest games in the playoffs but he has flamed out in those losses. stop the bs

    • Ryan Baumgart
      Ryan Baumgart

      @GymHustle but you're clearly I'm your feelings about cp3.... So let me get this straight. Cp3 the "best player" gets hurt like he always does. so the guy who's been carrying that franchise for like 6 years does what he's been doing for 6 years to make that team relevant and looses 2 games in a row to a team with the 2 best shooters ever and arguably the best overall scorer the nba has ever seen. Even though the team it's self missed like 20 straight 3s or something like that. However the second or first best player in league history could only get one game against the same team...

    • GymHustle

      @Ryan Baumgart It doesn't make sense to ppl who are into their feelings about another man. I say that cp3 was the best player... the NBA doesn't agree. CP3 was 33, Harden was the franchise player. In the Closeout games Harden started playing the way that he has always played in big games in the playoffs. Regular season, he's a different player, he's a beast. Playoffs... not so much.

    If lebron was up 2-0 in a finals series and he hit a 3 with a minute left on the clock, to put them up, would skip call this clutch? I highly doubt it.

  • cyber6sapien

    Kevin Durant is the most talented of the three but Kyrie is the most clutch, like Shannon said.

  • Brent Thompson
    Brent Thompson

    Finally a non negative topic concerning Kevin Durant wow. And Shanno payroll Sharp its just sad to see him sell his soul on national TV. So when KD was on GSW he was the best player but not the most important player. Now KD is the best player on the Nets but now the James Harden that he said wouldn't work on that team is the most important player lol. Anything to not state the obvious that KD is better then Lebum and the best player in the league

  • Justin 23

    Harden is thier most valuable player by a wide margin when he doesn't play they are 500 when he plays they win he makes the team better with his playmaking scoring when needed and his much improved defense

  • Timmy Allen
    Timmy Allen

    HaHaaa, skip is still sticking with that weak talk about how KD won back to back finals MVP awards oh he came down and shot a jumper in LEBRON'S face. That argument is soooo weak bc KD had no pressure whatsoever on him when he played for the Golden State Warriors. What happened when KD had them down 3 games to 1??? He lost, and you know why? That "pressure" hahaaaaa🤭

  • I'm foolish
    I'm foolish

    Why do we even how to explain why k.d is better?? Harden doesnt show up in the playoffs and kyrie will just leave the team to go party for no reason nuff said..

  • Gregory Bartlett

    Is this a discussion???? KD easily is better than James Harden

    • Arvin Aguila
      Arvin Aguila

      @FunkyCichy KD is a great scorer but it didn't translate to winning a title at OKC he needs the splash bros and dray to accomplish it plus has won MVP award without KD

    • FunkyCichy

      to be fair though what has Russ accomplished without KD. Also KD was already one of the best scorers ever and won MVP.

    Skip overrates KD he's a great great scorer and he has physical gifts his height and arms with a smooth game still he has never been a guy to continuously pass the ball I don't look at KD like he got that Luka or dame or Lebron game or ability he is on another level as a scorer over all basketball player though he's not even top 10 all time(respectfully)

    • Juicy Jay
      Juicy Jay

      @David Ruffin I’ve been saying that same thing for years. KD is a great isolation scorer, maybe the best ever, but beyond that he’s average. His teams either stay the same or get better when he’s not playing!

    • David Ruffin
      David Ruffin

      @Jonathan George your opinion makes me none watched basketball over 20 years KD one on one guy not a passer not a team elevator same guy had to go to Golden State with a steph curry and Klay thompson and The Nets like come on Kyrie and them Harden he's a great player in space though it's laughable Kobe's two championships after shaq next 2nd best player was Paul gasol ‼️KD is not that Great great player in space basically unguardable himself though

  • Law Black
    Law Black

    All skip is basing KD “clutch ness” on is the finals while he was on the best team ever!! 😭😂 There was literally never any adversity!!

    • Sh7ncho

      Skips dementia might have made him forget about the 3-1 lead kd blew himself

  • Kid_TaktiX-916

    Harden has been the MVP of that team easy. He’s made the rest of the team better and makes them most efficient. When it was just KD and Kyrie without harden, we saw holes and it wasn’t looking great. Harden showed up and showed that when KD went down, he was able to make them still look super strong. Harden made a lot of us forget that KD wasn’t even playing because they were still winning. They look better as a unit with Harden and Kyrie than when it was KD and Kyrie.

    • Sh7ncho

      @Mufuh Njoh nah thats just narrative. When kyrie was 'the man' on the celtics he choked wayy to hard. When KD was at okc he blew a 3-1 lead himself. We just tend to forget it

    • Mufuh Njoh
