Houston Rockets guard James Harden made a killer crossover dribble on his L.A. Clippers defender Wesley Johnson. The move led to Johnson sitting on the floor with Harden wide open for a trey. Observe:
All the time in the world
Harden pulled off the crossover late in the first quarter of the Rockets’ 105-92 win over the Clippers. And here’s the funny part – Harden had time to:
- Stare Johnson down.
- Lick his lips.
- Casually take his shooting hand off the ball.
All this before finally taking (and making) the shot.
When you think about it, this Harden crossover probably isn’t even his most jaw-dropping (here are a few notable ones). Johnson just had a case of weak-ankle-itis that time.
