James Harden is still a villain in fans’ eyes

Recently, James Harden added another milestone in his scoring chapter. He equaled Reggie Miller’s tally on the all-time three-pointers list. The NBA world went crazy and his teammate of him, Paul Millsap, asked people to give the Beard his respect of him. However, he didn’t get a favorable response as fans refused to give Harden any respect for quitting on his teams. Millsap believes they should focus on his game about him before judging his tactics about him. This got fans even more amped up.

When it comes to his scoring, Harden has never let the fans down. From his time with OKC all the way to Philly, the Beard has elevated his offensive game each step. Moreover, his shooting of him often goes under the radar as he heads up the ladder as one of the greatest shooters of all time. But, even though he has all the accolades, fans have lost huge respect for the former MVP.

While fans could empathize with Harden for his situation with the Rockets, the same can’t be said about his situation with the Nets. After forming a big 3 with Kyrie and Durant, Harden gave up on his commitment of him. He joined Brooklyn to bring in a championship, but with things getting tough for him, he went back to his old tactics di lui. He forced his way out of the Nets to team up with MVP favorite, Joel Embiid, in Philadelphia. Unsurprisingly, fans lost major respect for the star and deemed him a quitter.
