James Harden has developed into a much better offensive player than I thought he was capable of, but as we know, there’s that thing called “defense” that’s equally important.
No one has ever accused Harden of being a strong defender, but he’s much worse than you think. Take a look at this video below that a YouTube user How U put together, which highlights his defensive ineptitude. Frankly it’s embarrassing and he were on a team like the Bulls, he’d never see the court regardless of how many points he averages.
Let’s see if you can count the number of times his guy blows by him and he tries to slap the ball away from behind. Enjoy.
