Andre Iguodala is one of the NBA’s best defensive players, but you wouldn’t know it from the way James Harden turned him around on this crossover.
Harden has earned a reputation as a flopper or a guy who solely gets his points from free throws (which is far from an illegitimate way to score, by the by). Because of that, his handle sometimes goes unnoticed. But Harden can dribble with the best of them.
Seriously, he’s in that Chris Paul/Stephen Curry/Jamal Crawford category when it comes to the best handles in the NBA. Not many guys can make this move. Harden, of course, is one of the few who can.
