James Harden has to improve certain aspects of his game. With “The Last Dance” concluding, The Beard could use the doc to help better himself as a player.
With each episode of The Last Dance, viewers learned more about how much of an impact Michael Jordan truly had on his teammates and the Bulls organization. MJ laid the standard for what it looks like to have a champion’s mentality. Some of the qualities Jordan had seem to be missing from certain players nowadays, one being Houston Rockets superstar James Harden.
It was reported that Harden is studying the legendary documentary, which will benefit his career significantly. Harden, so far, seems to be best known for being a great regular season player and nothing more.
This isn’t saying James Harden can’t eventually win a championship. It’s more of him needing to fix a couple of things to get there. The Beard has the stats and overall game to be the best player on a championship team. It might sound a little repetitive, but let’s not forget Harden was one game away from leading the Rockets to the NBA Finals in 2018 before the team collapsed.
The Beard has improved on the defensive end and his offensive game is one of the purest in NBA history. The mental aspect of the game is the one thing holding Harden back, which is where The Last Dance could help. After all, what better person to learn from than six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan?
As James continues to physically improve to the point of shedding several pounds, here are three other ways he can improve himself for the future by taking notes from the documentary.
