Here’s what the six-time All-Star also said about European basketball and his experience in Israel. On possibly playing in the ACB: “I would love to play in the Spanish League because it’s very competitive. It’s possible if a team is interested. In Spain, there are many young people who want to play in the NBA. And the atmosphere is incredible. I played with Hapoel Jerusalem in the EuroCup semifinals in Valencia and the fans were incredible. Then I said I wish I could play there someday. I thank the Spanish fans who have followed my career.”
It’s telling that even in a world where everyone wants to slow down Harden, he can drive around a Capela screen against the majority of opponents and waltz all the way to the rim. You may think of Capela as a sort of decoy in those scenarios. You would be wrong. “Decoy, in a sense of if they take him away, then he’s a decoy,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “But if they don’t take him away, no, he’s a main thrust of what we do. He has the ability to be able to put pressure on the rim with lobs and bounce passes and finishes. Sucks the defense in—that gives our three-point shooters shots. He makes our offense go.” […] “Steve Nash had Amar’e and John Stockton had Malone,” D’Antoni said. “You know, you can’t have one without the other.”
Goran Dragic on Udonis Haslem continued: “A lot of guys in this locker room need leadership like UD, especially Hassan [Whiteside]. I think UD can provide that. He’s there where usually some guys would not be, in the toughest moments, when you need something, he’s there. That’s why everybody loves him. I played with a lot of veteran guys who had successful careers — like UD, Steve Nash, Grant Hill, Amare Stoudemire — [and Haslem] is number one in my books as a player and a leader and a friend.”
