He’s one of the best shooters around, he is a former MVP, and he is a three-time scoring champion too.
But there is another badge of honor that Harden wears: the best left-handed scorer in league history.
Happy #InternationalLefthandersDay with The Beard, the all-time NBA leader in points scored by a lefty!

The NBA pointed out that Harden is the all-time NBA leader in points scored by a left-handed athlete.
There aren’t many southpaws in the NBA so Harden should be proud to be the best of the best.
Will he use his left hand to guide his team to the Finals?
Harden has been talking the talk lately, telling fans of the 76ers that this really could be their year.
He’s been with the team for less than a season but he is doubling down on his desire to get his team through the playoffs and into the Finals.
He has been working out harder than ever, took a pay cut to help the team acquire new talent, and has publicly stated how dedicated he is to do whatever it takes to help Philly.
Will this all lead to a serious postseason run next year?
Of course, Harden isn’t the only superstar on the team.
In fact, one of the main reasons why the 76ers actually have a shot at an incredible season is because Joel Embiid has been getting better and better.
If these two players continue to improve and really focus on leading their team, a championship isn’t out of the question for the 76ers.
