    Hes trying to praise Harden but cant help letting the Jazz salt get through. I guess the "Salt" Lake Tribune is appropriately named.

    It’s predictable, it’s formulaic, it’s exploitative.

    I really can't believe this type of hate. Predict it next time please you suckers.

    I agree it's predictable, as in I predict he will school you.

    "James Harden is either going to drive, shoot or pass to one of the other four players on the floor... SO PREDICTABLE!"

    Unstoppable is the opposite of predictable.

    Such a ridiculous statement. Uhm, isn’t that basketball from the offensive side in general?

    Pass? Just ‘pass’?

    I hate how underrated and under covered his ‘passing’ is. He absolutely does not get enough credit for his passing skill set: between the legs, thru the 5 hole, behind the back on the pick and roll, look always on the break, over the top at every angle imaginable, alley oops from 35 feet, 70 foot passes in transition (Capela & 1 play the other night).

    Ridiculous. If he played for LAL or NY every assist would be shown in the highlight reel but since he’s not highlight writers like this (all of em) never give him due credit.

    In OKC James Harden was so loved wearing Nike Shoes, In Houston James Harden with Adidas Shoes he is hated, Most of the Analysts support Nike wearing LeBron, Jordan Shoes, Nike Sponsor on Jerseys, I wish the Rockets would have said no to Nike on their own Jersey and tell Adidas to sponsor the Rockets instead.

    I love how people complain that James Harden has the same, predictable moves and yet he's still the most unstoppable offensive force in the NBA

    You know he would pass to the other dudes on the court outside the 4 from time to time - therefore his turnovers. J/k.

    Sounds like a new idea we could coin as what I like to call the "Triple Threat". Since Harden doesn't play old school fundamental basketball, perhaps this term will help people understand his unorthodox style of play.

    Now that I think about it, why do we watch basketball? It's all so predictable. Every game, each team is just alternating trying to score. It's frustrating. And... exploitative.
