Harden’s curious record

The Nets’ season is having many ups and downs, first with the Kyrie Irving scandal, who despite having already played games, is still unable to wear shorts at home. Now we must also add the new loss of Durant, who is sidelined due to a sprain in the medial collateral ligament of his left knee. At the head of those from Brooklyn remains James Harden, who continues to break records. The “beard” has become the player with the most missed triples in NBA history.

4,488 are the shots that Harden has missed from the perimeter. He took over from Ray Allen, who is now second with 4,456, followed by Jamal Crawford with 4,158 and Stephen Curry with 4,080. LeBron James is fifth with 3,943 missed 3-pointers. It is clear that to put in you have to shoot, but It is a curious fact due to the context, the season of Harden and Brooklyn. In his defense, it should be noted that he is the fourth highest three-point scorer in history with 2,547. Curry, who passed Ray Allen this season, is first with 3,061.

It is not being the best year for Harden, who with the new foul rules has seen his scoring production decrease from the free throw line. He rejected the offer from the Nets to renew and in the summer he will be a free agent. There are already franchises interested in the left-hander, but it appears the 76ers are ahead. Those from Philadelphia already tried to sign him when he was in Houston, but he decided to go to Brooklyn. Harden would be a perfect partner for Embiid, who is alone in danger due to the loss of Ben Simmons, a player who could be key if both franchises wanted to negotiate before the end of the season.

It should be noted that there is enough noise circulating around the league about Harden’s alleged opening to relocation this summer, after turning down a lucrative extension from the Nets in October, to give Morey the encouragement he needs to wait“, comments Marc Stein in Substack.
