Boston Celtics Commentators Weirdly Called James Harden ‘Not A Good 3-Point Shooter’ On Broadcast


James Harden’s trade to the Los Angeles Clippers seemingly put the Clippers over the edge to become real contenders.

Harden not only is one of the NBA’s most prolific three-point shooters, but also one of the league’s best playmakers, something Paul George and Kawhi Leonard have been absolutely profited from.

The former MVP not only is eight all-time in triple-doubles, but also closing in on Ray Allen for the second spot on the NBA’s all-time three pointers made list.

While always being able to hit it from deep, it was under the tutelage of coach Mike D’Antoni, that Harden embraced the three-point shot more and more. If he makes another 115 threes, which would take him around 42 games at his current rate, he’d only trail Stephen Curry when it comes to made threes in league history… not too bad, right?

Well, not if you ask the Boston Celtics commentators, who actually called Harden ‘not a good 3-point shooter’ on their broadcast during the Celtics blowout loss to the Clippers. This is what Tomer Azarly pointed out, and it actually is pretty ridiculous, also because Harden is shooting over 40% from deep this season (40.9%).


“The Celtics broadcast just called James Harden ‘not a good 3-point shooter’ on their broadcast. This is a guy who is 115 threes from passing Ray Allen for 2nd on the all-time 3PT list in NBA history and who is shooting 42% from this year.”
