The 26-year-old power forward can also easily pull-off a 3-point shot. But the reigning Thunder MVP admits an unexpected, shocking truth: he can't palm an NBA basketball. While it's hardly a news story, it surely does arrest the attention of hoop fans.

Training camp for the NBA teams have started and fans are already in anticipation on what they are going to see during the camp and after when the 2014-15 NBA season starts. One of the Houston Rockets players, James Harden, is looking to improve and work on his defensive skills after he was put under harsh criticism for his defensive performance last season.

Even though Harden finished fifth in the league with 25.4 points a game, his lack of defensive skills were pointed out. There was even a YouTube video which featured his subpar defense that almost has 1.5 million views.
On Monday, a day before the start of the Rocket's training camp, Harden addressed his defensive shortcomings and admits that he will have to improve upon it to help out his team for the upcoming season. more >>
Chandler Parsons was bought off from the Houston Rockets by the Dallas Mavericks, and now that he's here, he wants to prove to everyone that he can be an All-Star worth his three-year $46 million contract.

"I've always been a team guy, and I'm not trying to come here and get mine and be the go-to guy necessarily. I'm going to do whatever it takes for our team to win as many games as possible," Parsons said. Having said that, he'll have to live up to the expecations of Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. more >>
