Rockets' James Harden Needs to Put More Effort into His Defense

Ken ChinSocial Media StaffNovember 8, 2013

James Harden is an NBA All-Star and was the 2012 NBA Sixth Man of the Year. During the Houston Rockets' game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, Harden scored 35 points, so his offensive output cannot be questioned. But his defense continues to be scrutinized. Just watch this play, and you will see what we are talking about. 

Harden just stood there and watched a bounce pass go right past him. At least attempt to play some defense! Or just make it look like you're trying, Harden.
