        Harden is hated to much. He might be a better shooter than Curry

                                  Sigh. Such a fantastic offensive player, but I just cannot enjoy his flopping, arm linking and at best mediocre defense. If he could at least stop flopping the shit out of the game. A shame.

                                      @Warrick James That was my point though, they won at the free throw line. It's boring, bad basketball. If Harden tried that game on the playground he'd get the beard slapped off his silly face for some of the crap he does on the court.

                                          The Harden step back... how about the Harden exception, because it’s 💯 a travel. Period there is no excuse. The league will allow certain things for certain superstars if it brings in money.

                                                Harden is great, but is it good for rockets to rely that much on him? I mean they beat a weak team for only 3pts with harden having scored 58

                                                    James Harden is an unbelievable player who in my opinion is a Chip away from 3rd best shooting guard ever

                                                      3:07: Harden split-lands, intentionally pushing his left foot between WInslow's legs to draw the foul.

                                                                                      Hey Coach, The Ringer has an article quoting D'Antoni: “It’s always a discussion,” D’Antoni says. “‘Should we move them on the weak side? Should we keep them steady?’ We space it so wide with Ryan and Eric Gordon and other guys. We can space the court so much that sometimes if you move them, they’re not ready to receive when our other guys are ready to pass. So … most of the time, we just stay there.”

                                                                                      It seems that the minimal amount of movement on offense is deliberate. Since spacing is a priority, and players have to cover more ground with increased perimeter I can see where he's coming from. It might be preferable to sacrifice movement for space and and let the ballhandler work against mismatches at his own pace instead of trying to sync with movement. Do you think he's onto something here? Could it be the optimal way to squeeze the playmaking juice out of a machine that is James Harden? Or- heaven forbid- is he onto something more fundamental?
