flagThe Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavs game on Sunday afternoon was a very heated affair, and during the third quarter James Harden took it to another level.

While Harden was on the ground going for a loose ball, LeBron James was standing above him defending a would be pass. While LeBron stood there, Harden delivered a cheap shot with his foot to LeBron’s groin and received a well deserved technical foul for his efforts.

After watching the video several times it is hard to argue that Harden’s leg-kick was unintentional. Not cool.
