    James Harden is a horrendous defender in any era of basketball. From 1970-2020. Name it he sucks at defense. Mostly because he doesn’t try. He saves it all for the other end. Gifs galore on the Internet of him waving his opponents to the basket as they blow right by him. I still find it funny that for all of these amazing things they do defensively in terms of strategy, teams are easily scoring 120+ points per game. Very interesting.
    1. Harden great post defender. Can held his own vs power forward in high post brilliantly

    2. Has something to do with shooting from 3 on high percentages and high pace of cource. Also more skilled guards in the league right now who can break down defenses with driving instead of plumbers like Craig Ehlo

    If he put some effort into it there are areas that he could be effective, but he rarely does. He wants to save his energy for the other side of the court. A very common theme unfortunately in todayís game. Even Kawhi Leonard who was once a dominant two-way player is no longer a great defensive player. Heís focusing on the offense by his own admission.

    Harden is a horrendous perimeter defender. The Rockets were constantly hiding him on defense even when he was younger. He had an inability to track his man on cuts, particularly when forced to work around screens. And because he likes to gamble on Steals he routinely gives up drives to the basket. Gifs galore on that one all over the Internet. Not guarding a elite offensive player, Just blowing straight by him.

    Last I checked those men all play or played professional basketball. Pretty sure thatís correct. None of them are professional fighters in a cage. But I could be wrong. I know you are.
