    Entertaining article, more or less true about why fans of other teams hate him.

    Some of the hate:
    Some of the love:
    A lot more in the article, even videos and such.

    This makes no sense.

    The Rockets as a team do not shoot the most free throws in the league. And the difference between the Rockets and the team that shoots the 24th most free throws in the league is only 3 free throws per game.

    So almost every team gets to the line a similar amount of times per game.

    So no team slows the game down more than any other, unless the OTHER team is purposely fouling Dwight Howard.




    Even Harden as an individual averages I think about 10 free throws per game. That means he goes to the free throw line 5 times per game.

    5 times going to the line in an entire game is not slowing the game down to a crawl's pace.



    That point makes no sense.

    The only worthwhile part of that article is this fan's response:

    I like that. I am a big fan of Federer and of course Harden.
