    Any great scorer is impossible to guard 1-1...Kids these days think its easy playing defense, but the fact is there is so much preparation that good teams do to stop opposing teams #1 threat. There is a reason why Tony Allen thinks its very hard to guard Harden.

    It is good to see all these NBA superstars working together to do something good when they don't have to. Those are some pretty big names.

    So you're telling me these 18-20 year old kids can't guard a 25 year old MVP candidate who is one of the best players in the world? Great newsworthy article by TMZ.

    The article is vague as to whether the players were "going hard" at Harden on defense or offense. I'd guess that they were trying to attack his "weak D" and he "destroyed everyone" with his defense. Either way what a weak article by TMZ.

    Well, if I'm trying to score on a roster of NBA all-stars, and I have to pick which defender I'm going to go at -- Paul George, Demarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, or James Harden -- yeah, I'm probably going to pick Harden. My chances aren't great, but he's not likely to embarrass me as badly as Anthony Davis would.

    Man people are going to have to start respecting this man. Dude is a beast and best 2 guard in the game.

    Just because he's not the fast, quickest, doesn't jump the highest or isn't the flashiest, doesn't mean any random scrub can bust him.

    Harden is the at the cream of the crop in the NBA and besides that, one-on-one is his singular most deadly skill. These bums better wise up, all the superstars - Kobe, Westbrook, Lebron, Curry, knows just how great Harden truly is.

    Mental midget, not a guy you can win with, did you see how many turnovers he had that one game?, just a flopper not very skilled, only scores because he goes to the line more than anyone in NBA history, I'd swap him for wiggins right now though...

    Nike is paying these guys annually almost as much as some of their NBA salaries to promote the brand. It's not like they're doing charity work out there.
