Twist on videos of James Harden’s defense: good defense

4 Comments

There has been intense debate about James Harden’s defense in recent years.

Is he indifferent or just bad?

There’s no shortage of video to use as evidence.

But here’s a twist on the conversation: Maybe Harden has actually become a good defender.

I wouldn’t go that far, but he certainly looks like an improved defender this season – so much so that someone created a lengthy highlight real of his defense. Beware judging anyone by highlights or lowlights, but these plays should add to your understanding of the Rockets guard.
