    I knew OP meant the shot, not the dribbling before that. I was playing around too. :D

    I think Harden's step back already has a side way variation. And it doesn't look like some kind of new move. It's just a a 90 degree turn pull up shot. It has been seen in-game by other shooters. But because difficult to be accurate, I have not seen anyone use it as a go to move. Maybe I'm wrong.

    That move was so magical I thought it was David Blaine with a beard.

    I don’t know if this is truly something he’ll use in a game but it’s still pretty damn impressive he can do that move fluid in motion with someone guarding him.

    Shows how skilled and great Hardens footwork is.

    He’s a special player I hope more start to appreciate how skilled he is when he retires. Not saying he’s the best player ever but he’s def one of a kind and we prob won’t ever see anyone play the game or move quite like Hin ever again.

    "Hakeem has five moves then four counter moves, that gives him 20 moves" - Shaq -

    When Morey is still playing with his elemental analytics, Shaq has already mastered the deepest mathematical application to basketball.

    his new move will be a 3 point tear drop from right inside the half court line.

    He's amazing.
    That said, I don't like the higher risk of a knee injury here.

    If he can consistently make shots like this then why not? YAY! Analyzing beyond this point is waste of time as Harden will do what he wants to do and I highly doubt Harden reads clutchfans forum for advice.

    Really cool move, I just don't see him using it during the season unless it's garbage time or something.

    Currently, but let's not forget that current (so just James lol) Rockets celestial ball playas go to China. Why? Because of previous Houston basketball culture. Let's not forget the Dreamshake, 2 championships, Rudy T, Phi Slama Jama, Franchise, and MoreyBall. Those cultural icons, or moments created the present moment as well.
