It's still baffling to me how somebody could throw their body around like that AT BOTH ENDS OF THE FLOOR specially in a much more physical era without any regard for potential debilitating injuries particularly with how high he got on every foray to the basket and those blocks. When he finally goes they need to study his body to see what the hell are his knees' tendons and ligaments made of.

Yeah seems like a requirement to be an all time great wing. Kobe had a similar precense on D during his prime, likewise LeBron and Wade + Pippen. I think this is why players like Harden are so resented, because the all time great 2's and 3's were lockdown and able to fill it up.

His arms are longer than most players would think possible. The other freak quality is that vastly superior last step which allowed him to be in stealth mode despite being seen coming.

James Harden is literally the worst defensive basketball player I have ever seen.

To me it goes back to what MOST of the players that competed against him said time and time again. Out of all of the qualities they could come up with, HIS MOTOR was the thing that amazed most of them!

"He just kept coming" was the common theme amongst the all time greats. When you match that with EVERYTHING else it almost makes and unfair player to have on the court.

Like a friend of mine told me once- "Michael has the build and strength of a sprinter while also having the ENDURANCE of a distance runner!"

People went from watching MJ to having to settle for watching inferior players that will never measure up. I think the most impressive thing about MJ is that those after him are still inferior to him. How much more time needs to elapse before someone can come remotely close?

He had no "chill" button.

All superstars today have a "chill" button.

Even Kobe had one sometimes.

But not Jordan. Hell no.

Lebron' s block in finals game 7 was better.

He sure as hell can't hit a game winning shot in the finals.

GOAT peak shot blocker for a SG.

Unreal agility and body control. Unlike any athlete to ever walk on an NBA court.
