San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is known as the king of terse NBA on-court interviews. James Harden is coming for that crown.
Here's Harden's response after being asked if he's found his rhythm. He just scored 40+ for the 2nd consecutive day pic.twitter.com/NpMy6inwPN— Juan José Vallejo (@jjvallejoa) November 8, 2015
Asking James Harden if he found his rhythm is a preposterous question because it assumes James Harden can ever lose his rhythm. That would be like asking if he's been growing his beard a long time. Of course he has.
Some players might appease a reporter with a cliche answer about his teammates playing well and helping him. Harden doesn't have time to appease, instead he shoots you enough side eye to ensure you'll never consider he couldn't possibly have his rhythm ever again.
