Re: Does James Harden have unguardable deceptive speed?
You don't have to be super fast, or super quick to take people off the dribble.
If any of you have played, they teach you about rocker step, hesitation moves. If you're able as the offensive player to have great change of pace moves, especially in the half court, it gives you deceptive speed and defenders can't stay in front of you.
See Steve Nash from 2003 - 2011, he's slow as hell, but had deceptive change of pace moves.
