Draymond Green Is A Taunting Goon, And He's My Favorite NBA Player

A lot of Golden State Warriors players are goons. Andrew Bogut is a goon. David Lee is a goon. Draymond Green is a goon. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson might run the most beautiful offense in the league, but the Warriors' goonery is an important component of their league-leading defense. But they've been so good… » 1/22/15 10:40pm 1/22/15 10:40pm

There Were A Lot Of Buzzer Beaters In the NBA Tonight

Look, the NBA season is too damn long. Even I, an NBA junkie that watches at least 200 games a year, can see that. Too many teams are tanking, too many teams are on energy crippling back-to-backs, and too many teams have injuries to fully showcase 82 games of high-quality basketball. Among the numerous proposals for… » 12/18/14 2:15am 12/18/14 2:15am

James Harden Isn't Godawful At Defense, But The GIFs Are Still Funny

The GIF above showcases objectively fucking awful defense by James Harden against the Knicks last night. He makes absolutely no effort to prevent Shane Larkin from dribbling by him, he doesn't try and steal the ball, he doesn't foul Shane Larkin to stop the play, he doesn't drop back and try to turn a three-on-one… » 11/25/14 8:30am 11/25/14 8:30am

Here's James Harden Falling Off A Segway

James Harden has become an easy internet target of late. His shitty defense even sparked this filthy burn from Ty Lawson. But Harden's attempt to look cool on a segway in Barcelona may take the cake. The fact that he's riding a segway, his subsequent fall, and the lengthy repair session needed for him to zoom down the… » 9/09/14 4:35pm 9/09/14 4:35pm

Game Of Telephone Unfairly Paints Howard And Harden As Bad Teammates

So, what's to blame for a totally innocuous comment by Rockets big man Donatas Motiejunas getting blown up and passed down the grapevine as incriminating evidence that Dwight Howard and James Harden are aloof and alienate the rest of their teammates? Laziness, or malice, or just a really slow news day when … » 8/08/14 5:16pm 8/08/14 5:16pm

James Harden Shakes Austin Rivers Right Out Of The Arena

The next time this happens, Austin Rivers should probably just accept his fate and hit the ground. Stumbling backwards and then throwing up his hands as if it was someone else's fault that James Harden jellied his legs wasn't really a good look. There's no defensive rotation that can save you in that situation, Austin. » 1/16/14 10:29am 1/16/14 10:29am

James Harden Really Didn't Feel Like Playing Defense Again Last Night

James Harden scored 35 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and dished out five assists in the Rockets' one-point loss to the Lakers. On Monday, Harden played defense like a hungover rec-leaguer. This time, he progressed all the way to indifferent spectator. It's the type of skill that just doesn't show up on a stat sheet. » 11/08/13 1:30pm 11/08/13 1:30pm
