Does Harden No Longer Have The Best Stepback In The League?

Look, I’ll say what no one else wants to. That’s a travel. It’s unfortunate too because the kid does have nice footwork and an excellent head fake. But a travel is a travel and he’s going to get called for it every time in this league. If I’m this kid’s father or coach, I’m telling him to stop with the hot doggi, AND1 Mixtape bullshit and start finishing strong down low. Do you want to be Kyle Korver or Zion Williamson, kid?

Also, kinda classic Harden defense here, not even bothering to move his feet. Hopefully, this video is the wakeup call Harden needed.
