    I know we've all gotten used to these slights, so might not notice or care ...

    But just wanted to post for @Clutch and @The Cat and @00rocketgirl and @KellyUnchained and all others who were at the game and might not have heard this Harlan call.



    INB4 "That's a simple mistake to make." uh, no it isn't. Not for Harlan. At least Worrell would have an excuse. :)

    Yeah that was annoying. He did correct himself later in the game, noting Harden’s trip to the Finals with the Thunder.

    Harden gets no respect. Typical Midea hate.

    can't blame him for not knowing the opposing team's roster as well as his own

    He is a nice guy, but he is starting to lose his marbles.

    More and more media people showing their bias lately, whether it's in favour of Houston (Nick Wright, Skip) or against him (too long of a list). Webber has become the worst, slobbering over the Warriors, so I'm at least happy we haven't had him and I used to like him over most colour commentators. Reggie has always been a dung beetle, but Harlan is also seemingly a Warriors fan / against the Rockets. At least he calls plays with enthusiasm still.

    Using the term "experience" pretty loosely, OP.

    Oh come on. He corrected himself.

    James Harden in OKC is long gone.

    Still shows the bias of not knowing about one of the best players in the game atleast the past 3 years. I could understand a role player, but common a superstar and him being a commentator in the playoffs...no excuses. He wouldn’t have made a mistake with Worrier players.

    c'mon that was an innocent slip up...Harlen is one of the best and shows Harden lost of love in interviews.

    I will not allow Harlen slander. He’s taken over as the best NBA play by play guy for a few years now

    he isn't the first to say this in a broadcast. Atleast, he corrected himself. after all, okc harden at 21 years old is long gone

    i honestly don't even think westbrook has ever been mentioned with finals experience. no one would believe it :D
