    Wait.. I don't remember him guarding James 1 on 1 much at all last series ..

    And let's not act like James was even shut down. AD acting LeBron is Dort or something

    Eyeball test. I thought LeBron played great defense against Harden on a few occasional plays. I also thought LeBron outplayed Harden. They're still playing and we got bounced in 5.

    He didnt. Lebron barely...even guarded James one on one. There were barely any possesions where Lebron had Harden fully by himself, everything else was either double or heavy shade. Harden actually had better stats than Lebron that series(offensively at least).

    Also dude's were allow to double with no remorse because of Westbrook, they based their whole defensive game plan around it.

    Exactly, they stuck AD on Westbrook the whole game. Our second best player was a net negative(by the numbers) on the court...lol, what a joke.

    I remember Harden doing well against Bron.

    Bron absolutely skull f*cked Russell Westbrook though, it was brutal to watch.

    Lebron gave Harden some problems in the 4th. He erased Westbrook.

    That is a silly connection. Our loss had to do with a helluva lot more than LeBron vs Harden. For starters, they had Anthony Davis, and we had... Westbrook.

    Our lack of size was not helping us in games 3 through 5, nor did House's horniness... There was also a Foster appearance that had the usual impact.

    I'm not saying we deserved to win or that Harden beasted LeBron by any means, but your post is a gross oversimplification. It's basically like when people tell you who's better based on ring count, as if those are individual accomplishments.

    Give Harden Anthony Davis and the story would be how Lebron has gotten old and MDA is a coaching genius.

    every time AD was on Harden with no double and without like 2 guys shading towards Harden for help, Harden drew a foul, blew by him with ease, or hit a three

    Lakers double teaming Harden and being able to get away with it is what won them the series...if Harden was allowed to cook in single coverage, I seriously think he would’ve averaged at least 37 or 38 on great efficiency that series



    1:13 mark...that was what was happening when AD was on Harden with no immediate double

    leroids' tackle defense on murray last nite?

    the worst thing about ugly ass AD actually believing this crap is that he himself was on the other side not too long ago

    2018 game 2 @GS was also one of the most blatantly rigged games of the past decade, authored by mike callahan

    how quickly this fukin star trek faced collaborator forgets smh

    I actually read this thread wrong lol...Idk why I was switching Bron and AD’s name...I talked about AD, but lemme talk about Bron instead

    the only challenge Bron took on was standing in front of Harden before the double came...he hardly ever guarded Harden straight up 1 on 1



    a few decent possessions 1 on 1...some times he got cooked...and then a sh*t ton of help, trapping, and double teaming

    even Caruso can “guard” Harden if the Lakers are just gonna send an immediate double...they beat us down tho, so they can say whatever they want I guess

    Proof is all there. He didnt do anything. Lol also one of his decent possessions was literally AD shading his right because he could because Westbrook provided no space. I counted....maybe 2-3(if im being VERY generous) of Lebron actually doing anything to stop Harden one on one. .

    LeBron James cant play defense laterally.

    Can LeBron stay off Steroids. Talk about an addict and the NBA ignoring and not punishing LeBron.
    NBA is such rigged League, it is just way too obvious.

    yup...Lebron “taking on the challenge of guarding Harden” is fake hustle...the double was coming immediately every time

    a challenge is taking on the assignment of guarding Harden straight up like Dort did...what Bron did deserves no praise whatsoever...he can’t hold Harden 1 on 1

    If Lakers played Harden straight up, Rockets might still be playing. MDA does does not know how to scheme against double teams and Harden loves to run right into them.
