The euro step is one of Harden’s go-to moves when attacking the basket. Even though defenders know that the move is coming, Harden executes the maneuver so perfectly that it’s still nearly impossible to stop.
James Harden’s fit in Brooklyn was a major question that fans and analysts were trying to figure out. How would the ball-dominant scoring machine play with two other superstars?
Although the dynamic with Kyrie Irving, who’s missing time due to the league’s health and safety protocol, still remains to be seen, Harden has done a great job fitting right into Steve Nash’s offense in Brooklyn.
The Orlando Magic may not be the best test for Harden, but it looks like the star shooting guard will fit in just fine in Brooklyn.
If James Harden assumes the role as this team’s primary playmaker, the Nets’ offense will be virtually unstoppable. James Harden may have euro stepped his way to an NBA Finals appearance at the very least.
