The day Harden plays defense is the same day I come out at 2 guard for the Celtics.
But still, his teammates continue to make claims. Corey Brewer’s the latest:
“I think this year he’s going to play better defense. We’re going to let the past be in the past. It’s the future of the Rockets, man. James is going to play defense this year.”
YIKES.Corey Brewer’s just trying to get 4 passes per game from James Harden, up from maybe one last year. Let’s stop acting like you have to play defense to be effective. To be the best player in the world? Yes, you have to play defense. But to have effect? No, James Harden just needs to put up 30 per.
