    Haha the NBA rules are such a joke, it took them this long to actually define something as basic as a "gather". How could they ever do without it???!!! Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb...

    Good. The stepback is awesome which is why half the ****ing league uses it now.

    Harden is always a step ahead; he has already moved on to another game breaking, rule skirting move.

    I think it's just to clarify Harden's step back is legal. Too "experts" say it's illegal...

    We'll have to wait for the videos to come out, but it sounds like the step back is being legitimized by the rules rather than eliminated.

    if they did, then they would focus in on moving screens and it would screw their offense

    Media will continue to tell you there is no anti-Harden bias.

    It's quite remarkable, isn't it? I know there are those who refuse to believe that, for whatever reason, the league, Stern and now Silver, has it in for the Rockets. I don't know why. I can't think of a good reason why they would, but it appears, at least to me, to be the case. The rule allows Harden's step-back, but count on him being watched very closely when he takes them. I predict that James will get more traveling calls, fair or not, and look for them when the game is on the line. I hope I'm wrong. Boy, would I love to be wrong.

    NBA media members could teach the Nazi propaganda machine a thing or two.
