    Harden is just a really good basketball player. Better than Kobe.

    I like the coach at the beginning:

    Now remember the most important thing. Practice your game
    • If you shoot layups, shoot layups
    • If you shoot open shots, shoot open shots
    • If you make plays, make plays
    • If you rebound, block out so Russell can get them

    I can't get enough Rico Hines summer runs.

    BTW, I think James is going to be okay guys.

    James has the best combo of footwork and handle maybe in nba history.

    There is guys who have had his footwork (not many tbh) and guys that can handle the rock as good or better but I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone with both elite foot work and elite handles.

    Harden is very unique.

    Then factor in the guy is a 6’5 230lb tank it’s even more remarkable.

    His shot is also so smooth. If he could change his shot selection even just by 10-15% he’d easily be a 40% three point shooter and around 47% overall. He just needs to eliminate like 2-3 of those crazy step back threes and turn those into spot up corner threes.

    But the step back is also what makes him special when it’s rolling there is no move in the nba more deadly.

    Bobby Brown just does not look like an NBA player. Very unathletic face.

    I just dont get the whole "James Harden is not pleasing to watch" stuff.... hes so smooth crazy.....

    hes like watching your pops play with his middle school kids.... just making brilliant plays seems effortless.....

    btw that jab dribble step back is just amazing.... just an amazing move that hes perfected

    Another day and Harden continues to work! Also good to see him try to get Bagley involved as much as possible.
