I love James Harden. You make an athlete fat I instantly like that athlete exponentially more. The relatability is without compare. Look at him out there. He’s got double my vertical, a whole eight inches of air time every time he launches himself off the hardwood. Anthony Davis isn’t even jumping on these blocks.
But can the NBATV guys clean it up for me one time? What I will not stand for is fat shaming one of the great scorers of our time. We can’t go around bashing Kyrie for not showing up and then turn around and bash Harden for showing up. Sure, he’s putting in the least effort imaginable while also tanking his trade value. Yes, his own broadcast is saying that he completely quit on the team. But I’ll be damned if he’s not showing up, getting some shots up, laboring up and down the court in layup lines.
“What’s a king to a God? What’s a God to a non-believer? Who don’t believe in... anything.” - James Harden
