    He's also pushing the narrative that Oladipo's experience with Russ was the catalyst for his performance this year.

    And in the same breath said that anyone who thought Westbrook marginalized his teammates last year didn’t watch the games.

    Guy is clearly drinking Presti Brand kool aid. Which is obviously laced with fentanyl.

    It blows my mind that Harden's step back is just now being recognized. He has taken it to another level, but he has been using this for years -- basically since he got here, and it has always been money. It's like a layup for an average player.

    Because he's gotten even better at it. Most people outside Houston have been too worried about fts to even pay attention to this mans insane off the charts talent.

    When did unabashed homerism from media members become the accepted norm in sports journalism?

    I’ll tell y’all what’s going to happen next game. The national media is making such a big deal out of Hardens step back that the NBA is going to tell it’s officials to start calling it a travel. Watch how they start calling it a travel in game 2.

    What Harden is utilising is a little known rule that your 2nd step can be a two foot jump step so as to allow a jump shot.

    Did Harden f*ck everybody's wives ala Tony Parker or what?!?! Dude gets tremendous hate for no damn reason it mind boggling to me. I mean people go out of their way to go at him professionally and sometimes personally.

    Normally I would say ignore them or embrace the hate but the problem is that many of these fools are nba awards voters or have giant megaphones of influence. And we've already seen that impact Harden's accolades on several occasions. That sucks because I don't think Harden ever did anything to anyone to deserve that type of targeted hate.

    There’s a lot of things that officials have done to annoy me.. the “Harden rule” for 3’s etc. However, they have been pretty firm on Hardwns step back not being a travel, so I applaud them for that.
