Check out 20-minutes worth of Harden's highlight reel. It features all the moves that basketball fans and aspirants have studied, parodied, and imitated.
From his dreaded step-back jumper, ankle-bruising cross-overs, three-point plays, in-your-face jumpers, the video has Harden's best plays from every game from his MVP season:

What is your personal favorite move? For his 29th birthday, will Harden add some more deadly dribbles to his already-impressive arsenal?
He will enter this brand new season a year older and definitely a year wiser. Not to mention that they'll get the services of Carmelo Anthony, who, despite his age and seeming decline, is still a premier offensive talent.
On Anthony, Harden said in an interview with The Players' Tribune:
“When you got that many high IQ guys around, who love to communicate and loves to figure things out, the job is easy.”
With a new and improved Rockets team, we can easily imagine how Harden's highlight video for his 30th video would look like. Rendering his defenders helpless with crossovers and a spate of dribbling moves will be a shoo-in. Assists to a wide open Anthony will likely be included, too.
