According to coach Mike D’Antoni, James Harden will be the point guard for his new up-tempo offense. The headline might shock some, but it’s really nothing more than a title. The title isn’t going to change the Beard’s game much and D’Antonio even joked that he renamed the position just so the writers would have something to write about. He also joked Harden is a “points guard” since he’s going to be doing so much scoring.
So I guess this is what we will be seeing from Harden playing point…
I’m just kidding H-Town!
Here’s the new point guard talking about his “new” position (and showing off his even bigger beard) and Houston Chronicle writer Jonathan Feigen with more thoughts on the change.
