Pruled by the season that awaits the 29 NBA teams in case the Nets respect their health, James Harden he replied with two stony words. “Be scary“. ‘The Beard’ is making that answer almost a mantra by imagining what his team can do with it, Kevin Durant y Kyrie Irving in perfect physical condition.
When he signed for the Nets, for many fans the title already owned. However, the injuries appeared and with them the dream of Brooklyn. Eight games together were not enough for him to ‘Big Three‘will lead the Nets to the Promised Land.
Now, in another season, the Nets start again as favorites, especially listening to Harden whose confidence in the team is overflowing. And not only that, ‘The Beard’ can attest to unique statistics that make the Nets even more fearsome.
Harden has a secret weapon. He is the player who receives the most fouls out of three. The amazing thing is that he not only leads the list of players, but also among all teams in the NBA. Yes, you read that right. Since his arrival in the NBA in 2009, Harden has received more fouls on three-thirds than all NBA teams, excluding, of course, the Rockets where this virtue became much more evident.
The Nets, who have an almost inexhaustible arsenal in attack, will be able to count on the extra points that come for the fouls of three that Harden charges unless, of course, the NBA tries to limit his movements in the shot that many times make that the referees choose to call a foul as with other players such as Trae Young or Luka Doncic.
In any case, the statistics are formidable, almost incredible and shows the talent that Harden has that, despite everything, is ‘only’ the second best team of the maximum candidate for the title.
