A Frame-By-Frame Breakdown of James Harden Ending Wesley Johnson's Career

James Harden destroyed Wesley Johnson's ankles with a filthy crossover.

James Harden killed a man last night. That man was Wesley Johnson.

Johnson will be remembered for his time at Iowa State and Syracuse as a standout player with a bright future as well as for his somewhat lukewarm eight-year NBA career. He decided to try to guard the current favorite to win MVP and was embarrassed on national television in front of his home crowd.

When Johnson went down to collect his thoughts, the crowd and visiting Rockets bench went into a frenzy. But when Harden's 3-pointer went in, everyone's souls left their bodies, and now everyone who was at the game is walking around like zombies looking to eat human flesh like a goddamned horror picture. We pray that Johnson is able to live again—or go outside in public, at the very least.

Everything about the footage of Harden crossing Johnson over is filthy, yet hilarious, so we decided to do a frame-by-frame breakdown of the crossover that ended Johnson's career. Make sure you go to church and don't eat meat on Fridays.
