Stephen Curry & James Harden vs. All-Time Greats

The 2009 NBA Draft produced two incredible offensive players.  Eight seasons into their careers how do Stephen Curry and James Harden stack-up to the all-time great guards?

After Eight Years in the NBA

Curry and Harden are squarely in the discussion of great scorers.  After eight years they sit a tick behind Reggie, Michael and The Logo.  But since Points Above Average is era-adjusted Oscar Robertson crushes the field.

Perhaps if league wide shooting efficiency declines Harden & Curry will look even better through the historical lens.  But with such a big lead Oscar is probably safe atop the career scoring leaders for guards.
