The Houston Rockets combo guard James Harden was asked what critics wrongly think about his game:

“Everything. He’s looking for foul calls, or he flops, or his style of play can’t win. Well, in a system of basketball, if a team is running an offense, who do you want to have the ball in their hands at the end of the game? The best player. In all the stuff that happens and the stuff we’re running, the coach has the ball in my hands, or in Russ’ hands. As far as drawing or looking for fouls, I just go out there and play basketball. I out-think the game. I’m faulted for that,” Harden said, per Uproxx.

This season, Harden is averaging 37.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 8.3 assists per game, while shooting at 40.7% from the floor.

Harden screams ‘motherfu*ker’:
