Here’s a breakdown showing just a few ways that Harden tricks his defenders to draw fouls. In the first example, defender should not have his arms out trying to impede the progress of the offensive player. In the second example, defenders are just reaching in like idiots, and in the last example I’m not sure if there’s a proper way to close out on a step back or side step jump shot but that ain’t it. Again, I’m not saying that this part of his game is fun to watch but imo he’s just taking advantage of bad defense. Try your best to stay in front of him, DON’T REACH and if he goes for the step back play the percentages and live with the results.
