James Harden’s Step-Back…
1. Is keeping the Houston Rockets afloat and in contention.
2. Is even more impressive in slow-motion.
3. Is the icing on the sleeping-pill-filled cake that is his isolation dribble routine.
4. Exists on the border of reality and abstraction, between human intelligence and artificial intelligence.
5. Tastes sweeter than caramel on a scoop of vanilla over a fudge brownie.
6. Is confusing physicists at NASA.
7. Is just as dangerous to stare into as a solar eclipse.
8. Is Exhibits A, B, C…. to Z that offensive dominance on a basketball court involves an individual choreography of moves, impeccable footwork, and a unique sense of spatial awareness.
9. Is not of this earth, possibly not of this galaxy.
10. Is genuinely strange and wonderful.
11. Is a figment of our collective imagination.
12. Is as indefensible as this asinine talk of a border wall.
