Just looking at the score, you wouldn’t know today’s heat and New Orleans game went into double overtime. The 111-107 score was so mediocre that even Miami coach Erik Spoelstra called it an “ugly win.”Harrell’s performance was notable in a hornets team that didn’t even win ugly.He played more minutes than any of his team’s three starters (43 minutes), finished second on the team with 24 points and eight rebounds.From the Rockets to the Clippers, to the Wizards and hornets, Harrell can say “super six everywhere.”He’s got a lot of good points and bad points, and he’s as topical as any other Sixth Man award winner.He didn’t seem to last long with any team, and he made waves when he left, but some teams were happy to include him.He is such a unique presence.Harrell was born on January 26, 1994, in Talboro, NORTH Carolina.He was the son of Samuel and Serena, the eldest of three children.Harrell, who was 2.01 meters tall when he attended North Edgecombe High School in his hometown, hasn’t grown since.In his senior season, Harrell moved to Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., where he averaged 25.2 points and 13.6 rebounds while leading the team to a 38-1 record.Harrell initially committed to Virginia Tech to follow coach Seth Greenberg.But after the latter, Harrell withdrew his commitment and returned to the University of Louisville.Harrell started off the bench in his freshman season, but made a name for himself by scoring 20 points in the team’s victory over Syracuse in the Big East Conference championship final.Harrell was both lucky and unlucky.Luckily in his freshman season, Louisville won the NCAA championship with an 82-76 victory over Michigan in the NCAA Finals.Unfortunately, it was later stripped of the title by the NCAA.In his sophomore season, Harrell exploded, averaging 14 points and 8.4 rebounds on 60.9 percent shooting, being named the ACC Conference’s Most Improved Player and all-Conference First Team.All media outlets thought harrell would have been picked late in the first round had he gone, but harrell decided to play another year in the NCAA.In his junior season, he averaged 15.7 points and 9.2 rebounds while shooting 56.6 percent. He was named to the ACC Conference All-Second Team and won the Karl Malone Award, given to the NCAA’s No. 4 player of the year.Perhaps because he spent an extra year in college, Harrell fell as low as the 32nd pick in the 2015 draft before being selected by the Rockets.Harrell averaged 9.7 minutes and 3.6 points per game as a rookie, but in his second season he averaged 9.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game on 65.2 percent shooting.An offensive inside prospect has caught the eye of NBA fans.That’s when a trade opened a new chapter in Harrell’s NBA career.Harrell was sent to the Clippers in the 2017 offseason in a trade involving Chris Paul, along with six other players — Beverley, Sam Decker, Lou Wei, and the 2018 first-round pick.In the new environment, Harrell’s performance also improved.The Clippers were in a period of transition, saying goodbye to the city of The Air and looking forward to a new generation of champions.In Harrell’s first season, the Clippers went 42-40 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011.But in the 2018-19 season, the Clippers made their mark.They went 48-34 and won six games in the first round against durant’s defending champion Warriors, setting the stage for the arrival of Carmelo cabrera and Michael George in the offseason.Harrell reached the peak of his career in 2019-20.He averaged 18.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game to take home the sixth Man of the Year award, joining Jamal Crawford and Lou Williams as the third clipper to win the sixth Man of the Year award and the fifth in seven years with the Clippers.But it was also in the 2020 offseason that Harrell’s career took off on a trajectory of mixed success.Harrell’s departure from the Clippers in the offseason to join the lakers, the new NBA champion and city rival, caused an uproar around the league.The Clippers were supposed to stop the Lakers, but they blew a 3-1 western Conference series lead against the Nuggets in 2020 to see their arch-rival win the 17th western Conference title.Harrell’s defection seemed like a fresh wound to the Clippers as the scar was not healed.It is said that the clippers were shocked by Harrell’s choice.It was also at this time that the contradictions between Harrell and Kacho were revealed.Harrell was reportedly unhappy with George’s play, saying, “You’re always right. Nobody can say anything about you!”There are reports that carmelo’s privileges within the Clippers organization have angered harrell, Lou And Beverly.The media also captured Harrell whistling his way back to the locker room after the Clippers lost in the playoffs.Since then, Harrell has fallen into a cycle of complaining to his old team before and after he leaves.The lakers lost to the SUNS in the first round of 2021, and harrell, who was widely used at the beginning of the season, was marginalized during the playoffs after Drummond joined the team.He played just four games in the first round, averaging 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per game.”The worst feeling is wasting time,” Harrell joked on social media.As a result, he could not stay with the Lakers.In the Westbrook deal, Harrell came to the Wizards again, along with Kuzma and Pope.As the Wizards surged to the top of the Eastern Conference early in the season, Harrell blasted the lakers, saying, “I wasn’t really used last season. I felt like I wasted a season.”What happened next is all too familiar.Wizards are slowly being beaten back into shape.Harrell’s rant about the Wizards’ locker room after a 95-80 loss to the SUNS earlier this month, including an expletive about the atmosphere in the locker room, was seen as a sign that he was leaving again.Sure enough, harrell’s name was on the trade list again five days later, this time to the Hornets.”That was the best I’ve played in a while,” Harrell said after making his hornets debut.After attacking his former team, Harrell praised his new team: “I’m happy to be in the Hornets family, it’s a blessing, and I can’t wait to see what happens the rest of the season.”But it’s hard for fans to give him much of a positive response.When it comes to Harrell, his strengths and weaknesses are clear.He has great finishing ability around the basket, great touch, footwork, predictability, amazing bounce speed and explosive power, and aggressive play style.But he was limited by his size and lateral speed and was always helpless on the defensive end.In addition, his range is limited and his attack method is simple and lacks variety.In a word, Harrell is not to be ignored, is also a “topic maker”.His “no three, no four” style of play still has a market in the league;His “big mouth” always invites trouble but never knows to restrain;He finished the comeback as a second-round pick, played more than six roles on every team, and was once voted the most underrated player.The NBA has more to talk about because of him, and a different color.(Supine/Maomao)
