Houston Rockets star James Harden pulled off one of the most disrespectful moves the NBA has seen in a long time.
The Rockets were playing the Los Angeles Clippers Tuesday night when Harden crossed up Wesley Johnson.
It wasn’t just any crossover. No, it was so bad that Johnson hit the deck. Harden then waited for Johnson to get up before splashing a three in his face.

I don’t mean to sound obnoxious here, but Johnson and the Clippers can’t let that stand. Much like the rule about getting dunked on, you can’t allow what Harden did to happen to anybody.
It’s not just the fact that he dropped him with a brutal crossover. It’s the disrespect that Harden waited for Johnson to get up before hitting one in his face. I would start throwing punches if somebody did that to me in a game, which was unlikely to happen because most of my time was spent near the end of the bench.
Harden stole a Johnson’s manhood in front of America. I’m just not sure you can ever recover from that kind of humiliation.
