What y'all are missing is the undeniable genius and counterpunch this move actually is.

If you watch the clip, you'll notice the nice chinese fella is guarding him on his left hand...James steps to the side with one-leg and creates an inordinate amount of space, allowing him to get a very clean lock.

This is a direct counterpunch to the defense the Jazz and Bucks tried playing on James, by playing him entirely on his left side or slightly behind him even. By side-stepping to the right on one-leg, he can now create enough space to get a clean look even against that defensive scheme.

Oh, no one is denying how effective this will be assuming Harden can pull it off consistently. 100% legal and maybe even harder to guard then his questionably legal step back he used all last year.

It's amazing how balanced his shot remains even as he jumps off of one-foot.



Still maintains strong shooting form and a solid base as he lands. That's a shot he can hit, you can just see it.

It's a shot he can hit on occasion but he'll never hit it on a consistent basis. All in all it's an ugly unreliable move.

It must hurt you that the league declared that his stepback is not a traveling move.

I'm a 3point shooter so I've tried to work on this in the past. I'm making no progress. At my park I have hit a shot or 2 like this because I couldn't get ANY separation when they double me off picks or put a bigger physical defender on me.... but it was luck. My teammates were OK with it because like I said I'm a shooter and I have to get my shots off if no one else is hitting... but I would hate it if I had idiot teammates taking the same shot. So Russ please, do not try this. Leave it to someone more skilled like Harden, if he's gonna work on it

Yeah.

However, I don't think we've seen anyone shoot it off their left foot and left-handed. It seems like another move to get defenders into foul trouble as he jumps into them sideways since he couldn't get calls against the Warriors by kicking his feet out .

look @ that separation





meanwhile, the best move in the 90s was a heavily contested fadeaway from a balding gambling addict


edit- and dont even get me started on the 80's (Larry "the shopkeeper" Bird)

You started following basketball last year, no one cares about your opinion tbh
