@Nicholas Saucedo terrible tired excuse ive heard since harden's days in houston. steph has more 3s than any person in the history of the nba and he's at 43% for his career. klay thompson who doesnt have harden's all around game and is almost strictly a 3pt shooter is at 41% for his career. harden is at what 36%? harden has NEVER shot above 40% from 3. even during his days coming off the bench at okc where he wasnt the focal point of the offense and the #1 option he never shot above 40% so that excuse doesnt work at all. harden just doesnt have the same work ethic as steph. too busy with the nightlife and chasing tail. steph is a family man and is a more focused individual. better human being too. much better.

Half the reason they call him Strip Club Harden. Attitudes like that never win championships. He'll always be a good player but will never be in the same conversation as Kobe, Shaq, Lebron, and Jordan. Let's not forget his atrocious defense. Shit if he at least played semi good on defense he'd probably have a good chance at making it to the finals. 🤣🤣

This is a great breakdown as usual and I have to say that I've gained some level of respect for Harden, but I think most fans of any sport will agree that exploiting a game's rulebook does not make the game better for the spectator. Maybe that's too general but what I mean is that I don't know how anybody can watch that arm hook move and not get pissed off. If you're strategy for offense is to try to create fouls out of thin air then the only thing that you are showing people is that there are loopholes that need to be closed. There is such a thing as the spirit of the game, after all. Harden is like that guy in pickup games that challenges absolutely everything the other team does, because they care more about winning than actually playing the game.

Great video! One thing though, your analysis was for Harden's regular step back. That step back has been used by every shot creator throughout the years. You failed to analyze his double step back, where he doesn't use gather or zero step, but zero step back (2 steps) following with step back.

10:20 Goaltending was illegal before Mikan. But they did widen the lane from the key-hole shape because of him. The Chamberlain dunk-from-the-foul line may be a myth but, again, they widened the lane because of him. And they made a rule penalizing off-ball fouls. And a revision, or maybe an invention. of the rule against offensive goaltending. And... I think there were others. And for Alcindor (Abdul Jabbar) the college game outlawed dunking...

@itsKarlDesigns Kobe Bean Bryant worked himself up from behind 2allstars guards in Eddie Jones and Nick VanExel, TheBlackMamba did help and led the Lakers to championships, #TheAnswer not only changed the culture of the NBA landscape, he heavily influenced the style of play and the fashion of the NBA and played wit a championship effort in heart everytime Iverson was on the floor, Harden has a lot moves in his trickbag and a very skilled offensive player who knows how to use the rules to his advantage and TheBeard has made improvements at the defensive end interms of being a solid position interior defender and giving a better effort when guarding the elbows and wing areas on the perimeter, people dont hate on Harden, folks just point out the obvious when he does the stepback travel shot attempt and the hooking and grabbing opposing players to sale a foul when he shoots, getting 30-40points in a game is not effortless, a expands a lot of energy on offense when possessing the 🏀 for 18-20seconds of the 24sec shot clock on a lot of that players teams possessions, makes the offense stagnat at times constantly isolating, thats not a recipe for championship success, but yes, Harden is a phenomenal basketball player, Rockets just need to forget and make adjustments that gm and coach analytical philosophy of attempting only 3s and layups, that defensive guru of a assistant coach they rehired back during the 2019 off-season has improved they defense and put the Rockets in position to win for the pass 3 years, the problem is those 2 goofballs, Daryl Moron and Mike Dandummy

Jordan and Iverson got to the line so much in an era where basketball was a lot more physical. Both were hacked to shit. Harden creates situations in which it looks like he's the one being fouled even though he is the one looking for and initiating the contact. I don't think you can compare it to one another.

It's never "rule bending" if it's within the rule in the first place, this is the genius behind James Harden, he uses the rules to it's full extent, dissecting it detail by detail, just enough to squeeze in a bucket or two.

I personally believe that in these situations, the NBA starts to shift to far off from FIBA basketball, which simply makes it less fun to watch. Most of us out there playing basketball on amateur or semi-pro level look at the NBA to be inspired. James Harden is not inspiring to watch, we can't pull of any of his moves. NBA wants this big show, but a lot of us just wanna watch good basketball :)

Hiroshi Look at it again. He picks up the dribble. Both hands on the ball. His left foot on the ground. He then steps back, both feet leaving the ground, his left foot hits the ground briefly to accelerate, then his right foot lands. Then his left foot lands and he shoots. That's 3 steps.

@Jadon Wolfe I think its the rate he does it and how he actively tries to get those type of fouls is what bothers people. To a lot of people it just feels like a dishonest way of playing the game. People want to see them play as a team and work together. Not one guy fish hooking someone and then look like he's a damsel in distress the instant he touches his defender. Its exploiting a sort of loop hole in a sense and that's not gonna fly with a lot of fans.

The NBA doesn't have to change the rules because a team won't win a championship if a big part of their offense is doing isolation. When Harden does his isolation, his teammates become spectators. When he does it too much, then it affects the rest of the teams shooting, rebound and even their transition defense.

I love how every time one of these videos says stuff like, "Harden makes the best defensive players look like chumps" immediately you have a clip of poor Bev getting ankle-broken.

Miss this Harden man, glad i didn’t hate on him and recognized him for the great scorer he is. Prime harden the greatest scorer of all time

Hardens ISO ability is awesome but not because he's particularly that much better than everyone else at it but because the entire Houston offense is set up specifically so he can do it. No other team does that and that's why his numbers are so much better at it.

Freedom of movement rule you can probably attribute to steph. He was so good off the ball defenses started grabbing and wrapping him up while he was running around.

I used to do the 0 + 2 steps when bolting through the defense for a lay up back in the mid 2000s. Everyone got mad but it wasn't travel then and it's not now.

That's a "legal third step" in the clip at 0:10 . He starts carrying the ball after his first step hit the ground and then proceeded to take 2 more steps. This is very difficult play to officiate

Gokart Mozart how do you cheat? He's literally on the edge of illegal moves he's not doin anything wrong if his moves aren't illegal it's called skill and practice and If you take out fouls games would be slow low scoring boring and basically jus football players playing what fun Is that to watch? They would make no money If you don't like the art of basketball jus leave

The problem with hardens game isn’t that his moves are illegal... always. It’s that when he is off by a fraction of a second and it *is* a travel, they can’t call it because it’s impossible to tell the difference in real time

andrew carey his eurosteps and drives are usually not travels, and to me it’s usually easy to spot the gather and the 2 steps. My problem with Harden is the step back; it’s such a travel they need to cut that shit out. And the arm hook obviously

Space Alien :Bingo!!! I'd have no problem with these so called rules if they were called across the board. But let the role players start hooking arms and flopping and complaining and taking double triple backsteps and then see how often they let that pass.

On another note it’s kinda crazy that they would change the rules of the NBA so that it’s a completely different game of basketball from every other level.
EyeGuess 2 yıl önce
Drake Marsaly yeah I don’t think it’s on harder, but they should take a look at the rule. In general people used the gather step off of receiving a pass or recovering the ball off the floor. I just feel like dude is abusing it for an extra step. Yeah he’s good but if that shit looks like a travel and he’s just getting three steps they might wanna change the rule. In my opinion it doesn’t make it more fun to watch I just get mad because it always looks like he’s traveling. The only people who think it’s more interesting are Harden and Rockets fans.

I like how he admits that the zero step was a new addition and most of what Harden gets away with would be a travel in any league other than the NBA but goes on to say "There is no way to hinder their greatness without compromising the game itself".... Ugh, just make it like it used to be or like any other league in the world.

I think you missed a huge point lol yea usually they would try to change the rules like the list you shown with guys like KG, AI and Charles Barkley but for Harden they continue to make the rules more in his favor. This has never been the case for example the list you shown of players adding rule changes yet it took a while for the league to finally do something about Harden
A. Hill

The difference but what Hardens done with the rules and every other instance you showed. The players were made to adjust to the actual rule vs (in Hardens case) the rules being forced to bend to Harden. Imagine if they let the carry call go be cleared to be used at nauseam. Or the rip through become routine. Or the 5 second rule have a “0” start. That’s what turns older/traditional basketball fans off not only from Hardens game but from current NBA.
