How James Harden Is Exploiting The NBA Part 1

  • Published on:  1/10/2019
  • There are very few players as polarizing as James Harden, primarily the way he draws fouls. Coach Nick breaks down his tremendous skill, and is then joined by Ronnie Nunn (NBA referee for 19 years, Head Of Officials for 5 years, and Director Of Development for 3 more) to discuss how he draws fouls going to the basket and how far he's pushing the boundaries of the rules.

    Seriously? You didnt show any of the hooking with his off hand on drives, his falling on threes, and when driving straight at a player initiating all the contact. Stockton was a master illusionist and now virtually every scorer attempts these kind of tricks. Kicking the legs, holding the follow through but moving it in or out as a defensive player attempt to jump past the shooter. Hardin is too good to be helped

    Nunn defending Harden is pathetic. Harden travels almost every time and initiates contact to get foul calls.

    That last one isn’t a foul. Kuzma’s leg didn’t touch harden but it may have looked like it to the ref since he was looking from behind.

    Changed my like to a dislike when you said, "He is an artist out there, and we are all better off by being entertained by what he is doing out there." Sorry, what he's doing is not entertaining and we are not better off for it. James Harden is a cancer and I really hope that he doesn't infect the rest of the league with his uninteresting brand of ref ball.

    He is so fast and a lefty... the nba aint ready. So its easier to call him a cheater and to call the nba out for favoritism. Haters gonna hate..

    Dumbest thing I've ever heard defense you have to be wide or else you'll trip and fall or just get plain knocked over. That is defense fundamentals

    This is all Bull, trying to justify bad calls still are bad calls. 5 years ago any of this plays are not fouls. I go further this "fouls" are only call to super stars!! They are not call for regulars players.
