Harden is the best player on that team, leading assist man, the leading scorer, and runs the offense. Asking him to be a lockdown defender too is asking a lot out of any great player over 82 games and playoffs. Thats why they put good defenders around him so he doesnt need to give so much on D. He is the offense.
I have really been impressed by Aaron Harrison, i didnt know his handles were that good. He seems like he can get his shot anytime he wants, he is really smooth with the ball and a great shot. Cant believe he went undrafted
