Twist on videos of James Harden’s defense: good defense

There has been intense debate about James Harden’s defense in recent years.

Is he indifferent or just bad?

There’s no shortage of video to use as evidence.

But here’s a twist on the conversation: Maybe Harden has actually become a good defender.

I wouldn’t go that far, but he certainly looks like an improved defender this season – so much so that someone created a lengthy highlight real of his defense. Beware judging anyone by highlights or lowlights, but these plays should add to your understanding of the Rockets guard.
