McHale Not Convinced Harden Can Be a ‘Facilitator First’

on

Former Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale isn’t sure James Harden can morph into a full-time point guard.

“You are who you are a lot of times,” McHale, who will analyze games for TNT this season, said during a Tuesday conference call with reporters. “Can you change and be a facilitator first? I don’t know.

“James is a scorer, and at the end of the day, you do fall back on what you are. James is a scorer at heart. Can you change that? … Can you be something that you’re really not for an entire 82-game season? He’s a great facilitator, great passer, and he has great vision — he really is a scorer as a basketball player.”
