James Harden is better than Tracy McGrady was and it’s not particularly close

James Harden is better than Tracy McGrady was and it’s not particularly close

Photo by Tim Warner/ Both guys are/were great, but one is clearly better.

Video breakdown: Rockets are revolutionizing small ball, but will it work?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Our video series is back with an extended look at small ball. It feels like we’ve been without sports for months at this point. While we may not have new Rockets games to watch, we still have plenty to discuss. Today we have a video breakdown where I dove deep into 48 minutes of the Rockets’ small ball gameplan and broke down how it has changed them on both sides of the ball. By the end, I try to figure out if this seems like an experiment that is going to end up victorious or not. On the offensive side, I talk at length about everything from how...
