Watch a James Harden defensive highlights reel (seriously)

You may recall an 11-minute long video (no, not "Too Many Cooks") from last year showing Houston Rockets guard James Harden's many defensive shortcomings. Over 1.6 million people watched that "Defensive Juggernaut" tribute with some laughable displays of defensive indifference and quarter-hearted efforts. Times have changed.

James Harden Gets A Much-Deserved Defensive Highlight Reel

If you’re familiar with the eleven minute “highlight” reel of James Harden not playing defense, you probably think I’m kidding with that headline. But I’m not. The Houston Rockets are one of the stingiest defensive squads in the NBA, and currently rank second in points per 100 possessions (96.5).

WATCH: James Harden had another lapse on defense

Forget his beard, James Harden’s hippy-dippy shirt is thing to be feared (video)

Other than his spectacularly silky-smooth offensive game, James Harden is primarily known for his unique facial hair. But after the whacked-out shirt he was spotted sporting prior to Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers, he may soon be better known for his propensity for fashion fails.

James Harden stars in latest This is SportsCenter commercial

A new This is SportsCenter commercial has been released by ESPN, and it stars James Harden of the Houston Rockets. There’s also a cameo from Astros mascot Orbit, which is pretty awesome. Kenny Mayne showing up at the beginning makes me all sorts of happy. Kudos to ESPN for not shoehorning in the awful, completely beaten to death “Houston, we have a problem” line. The post...

Ironic James Harden defense lines included in 2K15

That’s rich. Let’s just say the words “James Harden” and “play good defense” should never be part of the same sentence. Well, unless the sentence is, “James Harden has never had one iota of inclination to ever play good defense, ever.” Then it would be alright. That is what makes the juxtaposition of the creators […] The post ‘NBA 2K15′ had James Harden talk...
