New Post on All Star Snub James Harden at Hickory-High.com

Go check it out

One way Harden improved his overall numbers was to focus on his strengths.  He was excellent as a pick-and-roll ball handler last year, ranking 9th in the NBA in points per possession.  This year, he’s been involved in more pick-and-roll possessions per game, and he’s become even better at it.  Harden is at his best when attacking the hoop, and the pick-and-roll puts him in position to do just that.  Harden has become an excellent finisher; he’s shooting 70% at the rim, which is better than the average center.  Watching him turn the corner and slash through traffic makes those comparisons to Manu Ginobili seem very appropriate.
