I'm not going to name the reporter, but it's out there. Harden did not like being asked about his shooting struggles, saying he wasn't worried about his offense but that the team wasn't getting stops. Asked a couple more times by the same reporter, Harden said it was just basketball, that they go in some times, sometimes they don't.

After it was over, Harden made a remark to him something along the lines of had he seen basketball, and it became a tit-for-tat to the point where it got pretty testy. Harden asked him who he worked for, like he was going to get him in trouble.

It was awkward.

This is the full media availability with Harden. It does not include the argument, which happened afterwards. The argument was because of the questioning that Harden apparently didn't like from 0:42 to 1:15 in the video.

Bloody hell, did Delonte West sleep with Harden's mom or something? Nothing like a player who's been a black hole of suck in the playoffs to take it out on a reporter.

Did reporter ask him whether it was okay for a player to stop trying when his shots don't go in.

Why can't Harden shows this kind of emotion in the game? Instead he let it out on a report? What a pansy!

Dear god. We built our entire team around a ****ing mental midget.
We need to change course and build around Dwight, that guy has experience, he has matured tenfold, and he is the foundation of our interior defense.

I was watching it before it got to that point I guess. All I saw was them asking him and he said that he doesn't need to worry about his offense and that team defense is a problem. It cut off right there. I did find that response to be quite comical though.

Harden with the derp face pretty much the whole game. Only shows emotions during interviews or at strip clubs.

Same thing I was thinking. He sure can do all the talking outside the game but in the game he is pretty damn quiet.

Real players lead in the playoffs.

It was with Fran Blinebury and I am always on the side of whoever is against that guy. He sucks.

Harden is insecure because he's not playoff ready.
