Rockets superstar James Harden is one of the most prolific scorers the NBA has ever seen, as his stepback three-pointer makes him nearly unguardable at times, but he’s also drawn criticism for the manner in which he draws fouls.
Harden does seem to jump into opposing defenders — appearing to initiate contact, rather than drawing it. There are times when he seems to live off trips to the free-throw line, especially when a particular officiating crew is calling it tight, and he’s heard about it.
A Spurs fan at AT&T Center sure wasn’t a fan of how many fouls Harden was drawing during Tuesday’s game, and he let the Rockets star know about it.
“No one wants to see a free-throw shooting contest,” a fan yelled.
But Harden had a funny response:
“Nobody wants to see fouls either, goddamnit,” Harden responded.
