This video, uploaded to YouTube by “antisocial215,” uses clips of Spurs and Thunder swingmen Manu Ginobili and James Harden to show just how similar their beautiful games are — both are left-handed, deceptively athletic, good shooters and ball-handlers, and both use their superior basketball IQ and on-court grace to do some absolutely gorgeous things on the basketball court. Bask in the glory of this video, and get even more excited for the Western Conference Finals.

    I don’t care who goes to the final Finals, the WCF will be the absolute best series of the 2011-12 playoffs.

    Great video, by the way.

    Not only are Harden and Ginobilli quite possibly the best six men in the NBA; they could actually also be starters on any top teams in the league including their own teams, thing is their coaches believe they´re more valuable as role players, but come crunch time you´l find them both on the court!

      I’ve always thought placing importance on who starts was a bit arbitrary. It’s who finishes (close) games, not who starts, that matters.

    I’d have a little respect for them if they weren’t both ridiculous floppers. Flopping is ruining the NBA and these 2 are both doing their part to see to it that it happens. It’s pathetic and an embarrassment and is not good basketball.
