Overshadowed by the likes of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, James Harden has established himself as a legitimate NBA superstar this season with the Houston Rockets.

But the question is: Where does he rank amongst the NBA's top stars?

First off, it's worth establishing what makes a superstar in the NBA. High scoring averages aren't enough—it's how well you can create for your teammates, lead them to victory and play at a high all-around level.

The NBA's elite often changes from season to season. Players like Deron Williams have played their way out of the conversation this year. What sets superstars apart from them is their ability to be there year after year.

While Harden hasn't proved that he can establish longevity just yet, his previous play in Oklahoma City in the sixth man's role suggest that he can keep it up. His play and impact on the Rockets this season is reason enough to put him in the discussion, though.
