    Meh, he didn't sound very complimentary...more like..."This isn't how you think of good basketball, but it's working."

    It's working because Harden is that good. And because the gimmick defenses break some standard rules of basketball.

    Here's a game within the game. When teams hug Harden 45 feet away from the basket, we've been having him just stand there, while the rest of the team goes 4 on 4. lulz.

    That produces no chance for Harden to get an assisted FG, but it also leverages the Basketball Truism -- "Offense becomes easier as you take more players off the court."

    4x4 is easier than 5x5
    3x3 is easier than 4x4
    2x2 is easier than 3x3
    1x1 is easier than 2x2​

    damn, that's outrageous. don't they pay attention to his assist totals? and if his G-league teammates could make a damn shot once every now and then . . .

    I stamp this . . . MEDIA CONSPIRACY

    Shameful that someone who played the game and works as a basketball analyst can be that bad at seeing what’s happening out there with Harden

    how much effort does it take to check that harden is getting 8-9 assists on average. i mean how cluelessly incompetent can this female be?

    Pure hatred against Harden's brilliance. He is putting in over 100 percent every night, in order for us to
    emerge victorious.
    Nobody said anything against Kobe.

    So on top of Harden having great assist totals, this stewpid idiot is implying that Harden is responsible for teaching kids how to play? That's on the youth coaches. You can't teach what Harden does, heck NBA players can't even do what Harden does - remember Stephanie Curry's lame attempt at step back 3 - then throws up "# 13" w/ his fingers !

    This league and all those who report on it are ignorant and hateful (jealous) of Harden.

    Fuk 'em.

    No one ever told Kobe to pass or MJ? What all of sudden even though Hardens assists totals are soo much higher should he be passing?

    People arent used to a ball handler hold the ball so long and score as much as Harden does. He just has the possession of the ball so much that its perceived as a ballhog. Its just out of the norm and people dont like different. Also people are salty af.

    Whether you shoot a terrible low efficient turnaround fade-away or so what Harden does by dribbling 9 times it shouldn’t matter cuz neither is in flow of offense and neither passed. People just hate Harden it’s crazy. If he was on Lakers he would go down as top 5 player of all time.

    Lots of People on Twitter are hating on Lobo for her comment. Even people that don't like Harden are calling her out.Some of the responses are pretty funny too.
