    1. Scottie make up ya man about LeBron. No backpedaling & double-talking.
    2. Thank you for telling the basketball world what to do in defense cause you are battle-tested in that.
    3. NBA bring back hand-checking and real defense, Dammit!

      I could be wrong but his left hand is his dominant hand.. But im pretty sure he can still use his right.

                The crazy thing with harden step back is he can take a regular stepback, or "gather" double stepback. Have to pick your poison because dont choose the right one, its a foul

                      According to the rules and how I read them his 0 step is legal since his hand is below the ball and that first step back doesn't count then he gathers and takes that "second step back" but I'm no professional

                        And I'm not saying that because I'm a huge harden vs I mean the fucking guy shoots 50 free throws a game

                      And that's the problem with this new NBA. They are making sure the offense has the advantage by allowing the new rules to benefit them. Harden is not a master at creating fouls, they are given to him
                      Because of change of rules. That's why if MJ was playing in this era, he would score 40 on average. Because this league benefits the offense.

                                Harden does this in the regular season when it doesn’t matter .

                                    Pippen is right on this. You need to defend harden as soon as your team scores and once he has the ball go double team him and make another player beat you

                                      Let's put it like that: T-Mac: They allow him to travel these days. Pippen: I would start guarding him from the parking lot....I would attack his left hand and force him to use his right hand. Free advice from one of the best defenders ever.....

                                        So both Gary Payton and Scottie , the 2 best defensive players at their position when they played say the same thing .... pick him up in the backcourt and get the ball outta his hands & double him at times .... as many rockets games as I’ve seen .... few teams do that .... which makes it easier for him to score.

                                          Harden would destroy Pippen. Only 90s nostalgic idiots would disagree. Drops the mic.

                                                      Team should hire Pippen as defense consultant. His knowledge still relevant today hope he help my Raptors

Watch highlights of game 2 of the 91 finals vs magic and the Lakers. Magic killed the bulls in game one. Game 2 Pip got assigned to guard magic. Pip guarded magic from the inbound full court. Lakers couldnt get into their offense till late into the shot clock the whole game. Stopped/slowed down showtime and won the finals 4-1 after getting ran out the gym in game 1. Pip also did this against the magic vs penny and dennis scott in 96.
