James Harden says his new 1-legged shot is ‘already natural’
James Harden continues to come up with creative ways to improve his game.
As if having a signature stepback weren’t enough, Harden worked to perfect a new 1-legged shot over the summer (watch here). The 2017-2018 MVP said on Monday that the new shot is “already natural.”
“It’s already natural,” James Harden said about his one-legged 3. He’ll keep mixing them in, but he agrees with Mike D’Antoni that he doesn’t necessarily need to add to his shot arsenal. pic.twitter.com/9DnxRAGxCs

It doesn’t sound like Harden is going to be using the new move at a high clip during games, but if it’s this natural already, we may see it before long.
Harden’s Houston Rockets took a big gamble by trading for Russell Westbrook over the summer. They felt they had been left out with numerous other contenders improving over the offseason and did what they could to change things up and improve. We’ll begin to see before long what kind of results they get.
