Joe “Wonderbread” Harris’ ability to run off screens and shoot threes is one of the best in the league. No one has noticed and if they have they don’t really care, but I think it’s cool. He’s like a white Wayne Ellington.
Now seems like a good time to re-emphasize my point that Harris could be just as good as Klay Thompson is if he got the major benefit of being on the Warriors. I’m exaggerating to make a point, but I’m also half-serious. He’s shown the willingness to shoot threes, but he has to struggle so much just to get open. On the Warriors, he could just bomb away without a care in the world.
It would be good for the league too. The Warriors are beloved by many, but they’d be even more beloved if there was an actually good ironic white guy to ironically cheer for. I’m not talking about a scrub here. It doesn’t work as well if the player isn’t actually good. And it works better if the player is American-born. White Americans are the most ironic of all NBA players.
