  • There are very few players as polarizing as James Harden, primarily the way he draws fouls. Coach Nick breaks down his tremendous skill, and is then joined by Ronnie Nunn (NBA referee for 19 years, Head Of Officials for 5 years, and Director Of Development for 3 more) to discuss how he draws fouls going to the basket and how far he's pushing the boundaries of the rules.

    Nunn ain't GOD baby boi... We need to be competent, so we can make our own rational judgement, independent of an authority figure(such as Nunn and/or the host), or the herd(fans, layman, social proof)... Nunn is a man. You feel me?

      That's exactly how Harden be thinking. And the NBA who wants to open up the action and the global markets... I could come out with a defense that would get me banned to ALASKA...

    Any time someone rises above all others, as Harden has done, especially recently, some will try to bring him down. Exploiting is not cheating, and if the refs don't call it, it's legal, in the context of court play.

    If the offensive player initiates the contact it shouldn't be a foul

    That’s what the rules are there for. He’s using them to his advantage. Just because he’s the best at it doesn’t make it cheap.

    Harden gets more free throws per game than some players do their whole career.

    Well every star in NBA have some different and unique style for instance curry with 3, remember Lebron James aggressive approach toward rim during with Heat, KD and Klay jump shot and Wall quickness, not to forget James is best when it comes to dribble remember ankle brakes or make it dance, last year they almost beat the Warriors but Chris Paul have to bench, they may or may not get a chance to win this time or Magically coach need to bring 3 points shooter or someone like Ariza But whatever i would say James Harden is one of the best and Fun to watch, forget about the haters.

    Mane fuck James harden! You can't play no hard defense on him or they'll give him a foul. Plus that step back at times is a big fucking travel that officials ignore. And the guy plays zero defense!!!🖕🏿

    This is the stuff that makes basketball unwatchable. It may be legal, but it isn't good for the game or viewers.

    Harden hate is like Trump love. You can't logically explain it. He was clearly fouled on every play they showed. There were no "flops" or "steps" that the haters post endlessly about on every Rocket video. What this video proves is that James Harden can react extremely quickly to a defender's move and he calculates his countermove so fast that the defense is in trouble and fouls him.
