Scouting Report on James Harden

by Jerry Meyer - 05/24/2006
A mature player with an all around game, James Harden impacts the game in a number of ways. The lefty shoots the three well and can get to the basket with either hand. He also passes and rebounds well. Defensively, he is very good both on and off the ball. How much stronger he gets will have a lot to do with how far he takes his game.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for He played at Lipscomb University where be became college basketball's all-time career assist leader. Meyer earned Mr. Basketball honors in the state of Tennessee as a high school junior and senior. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
