    love that Ronnie Nunn says Harden's success in part stems from being a left-hander :D

    That's why I don't get why some of you guys don't like coach Nick. He's usually pretty unbiased. Yeah sometimes I don't agree with him but it happens much less than with every other bball expert

    I read someone here claimed he was fired as a high school coach for "harassing" his players. I looked into that and as far as I could tell he was himself harassed by a number of over-involved parents of players. He basically got hounded out of his job (again, as far as I can tell). I don't think I've seen any other objections to him or his basketball knowledge, but I may be wrong about that and just missed them.

    I like watching Coach Nick, even when he bashes Harden for his following.

    I still get a kick out of watching his breakdowns at half speed, which makes him sound drunk.

    Surprised no one said this.

    After watching these videos in slow-mo, Evan Turner is a punk trying to injure Harden. He knew exactly what he was doing. While watching the live game I could tell he was getting upset at all of the calls Harden was getting. That clothesline/arm bar could have separated Harden's shoulder. Pushing PJ into Harden's landing space could have also sprained his ankle. Scum bag of a player.

    Enough talk about Harden's turnovers. He's our entire offense.

    If the Rockets average 14TOPG, it doesn't matter if Harden is 7-8 of them. He's got the ball in his hands every possession.

    For those who don't have time to watch...

    TL;DR (or actually, TL;DW):

    Coach Nick: "Is this a foul?"
    Ronnie Nunn: "Yes, that's definitely a foul, every time."

    Coach Nick: "Is this actually a foul?"
    Ronnie Nunn: "Yes, that's definitely a foul, every time."

    Coach Nick: "How about this? Is this a foul?"
    Ronnie Nunn: "Hell yeah, that's a foul, every time."

    Coach Nick: "Not, this one, though. This can't actually be a foul?"
    Ronnie Nunn: "Of course it's a foul, every time."

    Coach Nick: "And this one? Is this actually a foul?"
    Ronnie Nunn: "Definitely a foul, every time."

    Coach Nick: "Now this one... I don't understand why they called this one a foul"
    Ronnie Nunn: "Because it's a foul, every time."

    Coach Nick: "The Blazers hated this call. That couldn't possibly have been a real foul, could it?"
    Ronnie Nunn: "That one's rare. But yes, that's definitely a foul, every time."

    Lol

    In fairness, he could've chose plays that were wrongly called but decided to clear up the air with his audience

    Tldr people

    Is that a foul?
    Yes (for all of them)

    So in conclusion

    Does Harden get foul? Yes, every time.
    Are Steve Kerr and Curry just whiny little babies. Yes, they are a bunch of crying little bi*ches

    The comments section summarized:

    I don't care what Nunn says, I hate Harden's game, and I know a foul when I see one no matter what the NBA says.

    Also

    Harden is the only player in the league who gets these calls, if Curry....
