    Rockets GM Daryl Morey: James Harden ‘only a polarizing figure to people who don’t watch’

    Do you struggle with evaluating James Harden? I know I do. Harden’s Rockets, projected by some to contend for a championship, struggled to a 41-41 record last season. A fair share of their downfall could be pinned on him. His defensive disinterest is appalling, and it sets a tone. His leadership is questionable, which matters a great deal for someone so empowered. He relies on tricking referees to draw fouls, frequently hooking his defender to create contact. But I still put him on my All-NBA team, because his offense was so darned effective.

    After Wesley Matthews tore his Achilles in March 2015, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle preached caution and suggested Matthews could be out until Christmas. Matthews said he’d play opening night. Matthews was right. He played in Dallas’ first game and 77 others last season. The problem: He didn’t play that well. Matthews meandered through arguably his worst pro season. Matthews, via Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com: “I’m a whole different person,” the 29-year-old Matthews said. “I’m a whole different player, and I’m really just excited to get out there and show it, and just to be who I know I can be and just to continue to grow. Obviously, it was different coming off of an Achilles (injury) and not having
