    Not surprised, he really takes his time when going from coast to coast, only speeds up when driving. Other than that, he's always jogging.

    He's never going to be jj redick or patty mills but he's been playing injured since game 3...

    If he was healthy, you'd probably see him with similar numbers to lebron and melo, about 3.1

    Hehehehe...

    Most are C and F. Harden is the only G in the mix. No surprise to see Bynum ranked first when he is playing on clutches :p

    C'mon Harden you can do better than 5th!

    Or possibly he's been playing on two bruised feet basically the entire season so far.

    Might make it a little hard to run as much as he'd like.

    Y'know. Just maybe.

    I don't know if he's the laziest guard, but he's definitely one of the least clutch guards.

    I miss Mad Max, even though he was never consistent in games that didn't matter, he would always show up for the ones that did. He was clutch. I would take Mad Max over Harden any day of the week.

    Oh, and Mad Max could also lock down players with his defense. Which is something Harden has NEVER done in his entire career. Peace out.

    His distance traveled per game is the same as Jeremy Lin. So I wouldn't say he's the laziest, he just plays lots of minutes which lowers his distance traveled per 48 min.

    He's no Bradly Beal who travels 2.9 miles/game , 3.5 miles per 48 min or Chandler Parsons who travels 2.8 miles/game, 3.5 miles per 48 min. But his 2.4 miles per game isn't that bad amongst guards (John Wall, Ty Lawson, Evan Turner, Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul all 2.5 miles per game) But just like others have pointed out, his foot injury might have contributed to his slightly lower number, which also affects his speed, which is very slow for a guard. Just give him some time, he'll be better.

    Harden led the league in transition points last year, does anyone have the stats for this year? because he doesn't seem to be leaking out since getting hurt
