NBA: Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Nate, Daniel, and Ivan reflect on the crime committed by James Harden against Wesley Matthews, and how much we appreciate the gamesmanship of disrespectfulness in basketball. We also discuss the threat, or lack thereof, of the Houston Rockets, and why the Warriors’ lackluster defense won’t be a problem down the stretch. All that and more!
