(Video) A look at Ginobili, Harden


Even before he stepped on an NBA court, Oklahoma City Thunder’s James Harden wanted to emulate his game after San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginobili and now the two will finally square off in the 2012 Western Conference Finals.

Both are deadly coming off the bench for their respective teams and both have won the Sixth Man of the Year award before.

So while many may be looking at Tony Parker vs. Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant versus whichever “lucky” Spurs player who has to guard him, or the Spurs’  “Big 3” versus the Thunder’s “Big 3,” the Ginobili-Harden matchup will be one to definitely keep an eye on starting this Sunday in San Antonio

Check out this video comparison-highlight reel of the two players in action including footage of Harden stating he sees himself as a Ginobili-type player back n 2009.
