The only thing missing from the highlight of the night in the NBA was Kevin Harlan doing play-by-play and incorporating his "no regard for human life" line. 

Honestly, how do you not feel bad for former Timberwolves first-round pick Wes Johnson? James Harden stole his soul – and probably his lunch money – on this play Wednesday night. 

The Wolves drafted Johnson fourth overall in 2010. You might recall that he was a bust and the likes of DeMarcus Cousins, Gordon Hayward, Paul George and Eric Bledsoe were all drafted after him.
