James Harden on crossover of Wesley Johnson ‘I was trying to figure out what he was doing, what he was going to say’

The light chuckles throughout James Harden‘s answers were almost as savage as the play itself. Almost.

Harden explained his incredible crossover and stare-down of Wesley Johnson, which included gathering the ball for a moment before making a 3-pointer:

Harden:

I was looking at him, and he was looking at me. I was trying to figure out what he was doing, what he was going to say. Then, I just shot it.

I was going to shoot it, but I was waiting to see, figure out what was going on. I was confused.

Harden made such a great play, he had time to show up his vanquished opponent and still get the shot off cleanly. He earned the taunting opportunity and maximized it.

But his answers are just a long way of him acknowledging it wouldn’t go over well if he explained the play so directly.
