    Less TV time for harden and more tv time for a guy emulating harden. Ok.

    I don't like the way he writes C's. I don't like it at all.

    Black Harden gets hate. White Harden is beloved. McCollum gets proven right again.

    He doesn’t even watch the games and he probably didn’t write this list.

    Last I checked, free throws count as points. And would any team ever benefit from a player getting to the line less? What are the arguments for less free throws = championship?

    Over the last 2 weeks, 9 players are averaging more FTA per game than James Harden. All of them are playing less minutes per game and have less FGA per game.

    what they call cheating or ref baiting for Harden, they will praise white Harden for

    Luka in his 2nd season is already averaging 9 free throws a game seeking out contact at every opportunity...it’s nothing but love tho

    I hope Harden takes 100 FTs in his next TNT game.

    I never thought I’d see the day that a league so concerned about prejudices against people of color would be so blatantly and adamantly biased against a black player who marched to his own beat.

    I sit here and could not tell you one thing about Harden’s politics, for all I know he could be very open, but I haven’t read much if any about it.

    The guy plays ball and has a super high Basketball IQ...

    The way the media ostracizes Harden, is like they’ve been wanting to link him to an Uncle Tom. I’m frankly shocked nobody has called them out on it harsher.

    He makes the game boring... blah blah blah.. He uses his sheer IQ to dominate, but the league still wants to call the shots about what hip means, and Harden doesn’t push their agenda.

    I’d rather watch 40min of Harden shooting free throws than 4min of that joke of a show inside the NBA-TNT




    F-U. Ernie!!!!!!!

    I guess Ernie thinks it's more fun to watch Giannis shoot 6/10 from the FT line in 31 minutes of action than to watch Harden shoot 11/13 in 38 minutes of action.

    Ernie has always been a d**k. Just go back and watch any of his segments and you will see these unnecessary smug remarks wedged in between what the others are saying.

    40 mins at the line? LOL SO FUNNY.

    NOT.

    I will never understand how people think free throws are bad. They’re the most efficient way to score in basketball outside of a wide open dunk/layup..
