A lot has been said about James Harden's improved numbers when he joined the Rockets. What can't really be told in numbers is the ballhandling skills, particularly that stepback.

It's not like LeBron James could look on the stat sheet and go, "Hm, I might wanna watch out for that stepback." He could watch game film, but he's probably too busy doing LeBron James things. Still, he's going to want to make time after almost getting thrown out of his sneakers by Harden like this.

At least James didn't fall, so if Dwyane Wade decides to give him any shit, he could be like, "I ain't touch earth though." That's THE excuse when you get crossed like that.
