    Does anyone think...

    That Harden travels alot when he drives to the basket?

    Last night he made a nice drive to the basket but he also made a huge and obvious extended travel before he shot the ball.

    I am not sure if I am just seeing things but I have watched some Rockets games this year and he seems to travel alot when he drives into the paint and it seems ridiculously obvious to me.

    Most other star wings also travel occasionally on the perimeter and in the painted area but they tend to do it in such a minor way that it is barely noticeable while Harden seems to just pick up the ball at times and running back it straight through the defense.

    Dunno just wanted to see if anyone else noticed that or maybe I am just seeing things.

    Kobe, Rose, Wade, LeBron travel more than Harden.

    YES!

    no one listens to me, it drives me CRAZY. the guy cant drive AT ALL without traveling. And he's really arrogant about it, getting all macho after making layups that he took 3 long strides on

    thank you man thank you he's the worst. I think he's worse then Lebron imo because it's so slow to make it even more obvious. He takes a lot of 4-5 steppers too where he'll start running then euro step??

    Howard is also a better defensive center today than Shaq ever was.

    Traveling has been a problem in the NBA since the 80's (perhaps even longer, but that's when I started watching). Jordan was notorious for traveling. But the fans like to see guy cutting to the basket for dunks, so the league gives the fan what it wants. It's like in baseball when so many guys were on steroids, but they were hitting lots of home runs, the league just turned a blind eye and allowed it to happen because it helped ratings, and they were desperate to get fans back after the season the strike ate up.


    The league/Stern has been making things easier for wing players since the Dr. J/Jordan era, because those are the guys the fans like to see. They loosen the calls on traveling and takes away hand checking to open things up.
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    Harden takes mini-steps to get his feet right to do his "move" to the rim. He travels constantly. He also switches his pivot foot more than most.

    So yes, he travels all the time. He and Kobe switch their pivot foot more than any other players in the league.

    Do you really want the game to be slow down that much?

    Have you seen the looks on these guys faces during international competitions when they get called for travel?

    No one mentioned Wade and most people think Harden is better now anyway.

    No I don't however it takes away from the legitimacy of the game if they don't enforce the rules to a certain standard.
    They can't allow players to consistently travel in an obvious manner and not do anything.

    What do you expect, most of them have no shool education or basketball fundamentals, just straight up street play.

    totally agree with the bolded but cmon man... that all ended when the ABA and NBA were combined because it all became about entertainment...

    the NBA sucked in the 70s... The ABA was a free for all and very entertaining. The merger incorporated alot of the no calls (ie palming, traveling, moving picks) we see today.

    This is why comparing players across era's is a waste of time

    Watch an NBA game today and tell me you can't find at least 60 violations between the three areas above ... it is impossible...

    To answer your original question... of course he does... he is even probably worse than most SG's but what really makes it obvious is that his move are very slow and deliberative vs others...

    dude looks like he is moving in mud at times...
