Rockets’ James Harden thinks all the memes about his step-back are funny

James Harden, Rockets

Houston Rockets star James Harden is well-aware of the memes featuring his signature step-back move, and he thinks all of them are funny.

Per TNT’s Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, Harden said:

The Rockets guard has been utilizing the step-back 3 as his primary weapon on offense. It usually comes after a spate of dribbles. Once Harden sees the defender falling asleep, he steps back — usually behind the 3-point line — then shoots. It often swishes the net and is one of the most dangerous moves in basketball.

Since James Harden uses it often, fans have made memes about it. Some give it praise, while some put out memes that work like reminders to the NBA referees to watch out for a possible traveling violation:

Be as it may, the Harden memes are one big indication of the guard’s popularity all over the league. Many may not agree with his foul-fishing tactics, but one cannot deny the offensive talent he possesses.

James Harden has now scored at least 40 points in four consecutive games, smashing NBA records along the way. On Thursday, he has a chance to extend it to five games as they go up against the Golden State Warriors — the team who eliminated them in seven games in last year’s Western Conference Finals. You better believe that Harden will showcase every move from his arsenal.
