There’s being good, and then there’s being so good that all you can is stare at everyone else below. In the latter category: James Harden.

The Houston Rockets gun is already one of the best in the league; that much anyone who’s ever even thought the word “basketball” will know. But poor old Wes Johnson of the Los Angeles Clippers now has it branded deep into his soul.

Or, he would, had Harden not just mercilessly ripped it from his body.

The Rockets put on an absolute clinic in the first quarter of their clash with the Clippers at the Staples Center today, going into the first break with a commanding 34 – 12 lead.

And there were no plays more visually dominant than this one Harden subjected Johnson too; savagely crossing Johnson up, destroying his ankles, and then staring him down with the icy gaze of a western gunslinger.

It is incredibly disrespectful and we are very much here for it.

My god. My GOD. That man has a FAMILY.

The internet agrees: Wesley Johnson is now dead.

RIP Wesley Johnson. Cause of death: Got in James Harden’s way.

Harden went into the Rockets locker room at half time carrying 22 points. Old mate doing big things today.
