Warriors Beat Rockets As James Harden Can't Get Final Shot Off

James Harden was brilliant all game, putting up a ridiculous 38/10/9 line without a ton of help from his non-Dwight Howard teammates. But on the final play of the game, down 99-98 with seven seconds to attack a scrambling Warriors defense, Harden inexplicably passed the ball to Howard, and when he got it back he… » 5/21/15 11:44pm Thursday 11:44pm

Rockets Return The Favor, Whoop The Clippers To Avoid Elimination

With the Grizzlies-Warriors, Wizards-Hawks, and Cavaliers-Bulls (before tonight) series all even at two games a piece, the Rockets-Clippers series was the outlier. The Clippers stomped all over the Rockets in Games 1, 3, and 4, winning by 16, 25, and 33 points. Chris Paul didn’t even play in the first, and played… » 5/13/15 1:13am 5/13/15 1:13am

James Harden Thrown To Floor By Matt Barnes

James Harden got a step on Clippers D-and-3 guy (where "D" can be understood to stand for "dipshit goon with a sneer and six fouls to give") Matt Barnes in the second quarter; Barnes responded by unleashing his inner Wilber Marshall for some damn reason. For his efforts, he was awarded a flagrant-1 foul and some… » 3/15/15 4:35pm 3/15/15 4:35pm

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
