Video: Rockets’ James Harden tries to get tricky with one-legged three-pointer pregame vs. Clippers
Houston Rockets star James Harden is slowly incorporating the one-legged 3-point shot to his arsenal of offensive moves, as we’ve seen him do it multiple times during the first two games of the preseason. He’s also attempting different tricks to improve its use as seen in the video below.

The video was taken during the Rockets’ pregame warm-ups in their second preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Hawaii. Houston won 109-96.
Harden’s one-legged 3-pointer went viral on social media a couple of weeks ago when he did it in an open court scrimmage. The former NBA MVP then said that he’ll be using his new-found move this season, and it’s clear that he isn’t bluffing. The first time Harden used the shot was in the first quarter of Houston’s preseason game against the Shanghai Sharks a couple of days ago.
Harden already has the deadly step-back jumper which has created controversies around the league over the past year. If he decides to use the one-legged 3-pointer consistently, it will definitely be one of the hottest topics in social media this season.
The Rockets will once again attempt to win a championship with Harden as the team’s centerpiece. They have traded for Russell Westbrook during the offseason, which gives Houston their own version of a superstar duo this season. There is no doubt that talent-wise, they are both in the conversation for the best guards in the league, but whether or not they can make it work remains to be seen.
