James Harden flop
John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Toronto Raptors star guard Fred VanVleet is 6-feet and 197 pounds soaking wet. He’s not going to be running over opponents on a regular basis.

That’s unless VanVleet is going up against Houston Rockets guard James Harden, who is known around the NBA world as a flop specialist.

Check out Harden flop as VanVleet attempts to finish in transition during Thursday night’s game.

That’s about the best acting we’ve seen on an NBA court since Kevin Durant pretended to get along with Draymond Green.

It might not earn Harden an award, but he could be fined. The dude legit has five inches and north of two dozen pounds on Van Vleet.

We’re just glad the zebras on the court in Toronto didn’t fall for it.
