    nba coaches should've figured this out in the FIRST GAME against harden. Kids do this on school playgrounds. Someone got good left, force right. Someone got good 3shot, force drive

          Puppet said it best. I consider myself a great player but I love defense. My issue wit harden isn’t really the allowed travel. But the allowed contact he constantly given to even get his shots off. Even with the extra two or three steps that he sometimes does. The defender is still there. But that forearm in the gut is never called.

                Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan two of the best defenders in the history of the game I remember when Shaq beat them in the playoffs in the 94 95 season and the next year this combo came in like in a vengeance and stopped Shaq and Penny Hardaway with the help of Dennis Rodman that was one of the best defenders in the 80s when he was in The Bad Boys and they give trouble to the Orlando Magic and swept them from the playoffs like pretty much easy Scottie Pippen was such a remarkable Defender that he used to switch every opponent in the basketball court regardless of speed and height he was long and he was fast if I want a small forward playing on my team my starting 5 will be Michael Jordan shooting guard Magic Johnson point guard Scottie Pippen small forward for sure I will have either Charles Oakley or Charles Barkley I want toughness and I want power forward can bring it to the plate my Center Hakeem Olajuwon

                          There’s a reason why only Milwaukee could pull it off is coz Eric Bledsoe is pippen like on defense .... and they have so much length... giannis, Lopez , Middleton , snell , Brown , mirotic, the whole team has length , so when harden is sent right into the middle against them .... he has at least 2 lanky guys who can disrupt his shot or pass ... they are the only team that can pull it off

                            Very simple. Keep on change reserve and full court press him. Stick to him like a glue. Like how leneard stick to lebron during thier finals.

                                                        Thank you James Harden, its opening of a new era where in they consider the art of defense again. Because you took so many easy open fucking shots

                                                          Jazz tried but fail because james harden is figured it out you cant run the same strategy every game.

                                                            No Jazz had it wrong and inconsistent in their execution the purpose of guarding him to the side is to take away the step back. Jazz defenders wasnt exactly guarding him close on the side like Bledsoe and Hill did, jazz are far from his side and goes in front of him when he drives result he got alot of of step back also the help defense on weak side wasnt there when he gets to the paint result Capella gets alley hoops.

                                                            Jazz did things differently than Bucks though. Bucks totally gave James the drive in, but Jazz's coach told his players not to let James drive in.

                                                            Pippen should have charged money for this. Harden went 0-15 tonight against the jaz exploring this technique

Y’all should know that Harden is an offensive juggernaut and he’s seen so many styles of defense thrown at him and he keeps adapting and making his game better. Coach Quin Snyder of the Utah Jazz describes Harden as “Artificial Intelligence” constantly adjusting his game and it’s impossible to stop him. The only thing that can stop James Harden is James Harden.

                                                                                    • Stephen A Smith Jr

                                                                                  • lilboosty3

As soon as you figure out how to guard Harden, Harden will figure out a way to slip away. He’s too dynamic and his supporting cast are too dangerous. He can dish it out and there other playmakers and shooters to lessen the load
