Players like Harden, Kevin Martin, early career Wade and KD, Maggette - these guys all just looked to get fouled to a varying but large degree (funny thing is, Maggette and Wade aren't great foul shooters)

So get in the paint, draw contact, and make sure you have 90% shooters. Oh, and watch your fans claw their eyes out in the stands out of frustration

As you say this, Grantland posts an article today about this very topic of how bad this is to watch.

It's a travesty to even put Howard in the same sentence as the Bad Boys.

I wonder how the Bad Boys or even Oakley's Knicks would play against today's foul baiting rockets?

They'd probably break both Harden's forearms in an honest effort to get their money's worth from those fouls

dunno while I despise Haren for his shameless flopping he is a great player imo, he would great in any era
post #18867 of 27206
I can see why people dislike current Houston Rockets but there are more hateable NBA teams throughout history (Bad Boys, LBJ Heatles, etc.)....

Harden and Howard are annoying but watching them play doesn't fill me with rage like it does for other people apparently. /shrug

In todays era, first five will likely foul out or just get kicked out and be suspended for a few games.

well when I look at Howard that first Miami squad seems quite likeable in comparison
