James Harden's nifty step-back move had NBA fans shouting 'travel' – For The Win


James Harden is one of the NBA’s most dynamic scorers and the favorite to win MVP this season. He’s a challenge for any player to defend, and when he’s getting away with the move below, he’s impossible.

During Game 1 of the Rockets’ first-round matchup with the Timberwolves, Harden broke down Andrew Wiggins off the dribble and knocked down a step-back 3.

The footwork was incredible. It was also a blatant travel.

Harden took four steps back after he picked up his dribble. It was done quickly, and it wasn’t called.

NBA fans certainly took notice, though. They all had the same reaction.

Such an obvious travel. He gets away with it alot.
