The NBA has been the playground for some of the best talents to ever play basketball.

Several generations have had their icons who have revolutionized the game in one way or the other, breaking records in the process, and so many stars have possessed outstanding attacking talents, breaching the 40-point mark multiple times in their respective careers.

However, only a handful have been able to produce a much more all-around performance while hitting such scoring heights.

James Harden starts our list of stars to have achieved this feat. And it should come as no surprise to see the three-time scoring champion open the list. The Brooklyn Nets star has made a name for himself as one of the NBA’s most notable and consistent attacking stars.

The shooting guard astonishingly recorded more than 40-plus points, 10-plus assists, 8-plus rebounds and 8 3-pointers three times in the past decade. He has achieved this feat more than anyone else in the history of the league.

The last of those came against the Chicago Bulls in November 2019 while playing for the Houston Rockets. That night, Harden scored 42 points and added 10 rebounds and nine assists in 36 minutes. He made 47.4% of his 3-pointers, going 9 of 19.


No. 2: Paul George
