SportsNation Blog Archives Ty Lawson
Internet trolling requires a deft touch -- just the right amount of humor and truth so as to avoid being over-the-top mean.
And so we present to you a perfect example, as posted -- well, actually, reposted -- to Instagram and Twitter by Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson on Sunday. This image seizes upon two widely held opinions (or facts, depending whom you ask): 1) the Cowboys are bad at defense and 2) James Harden is bad at defense.

That "#Rp" is an acknowledgment that this is not a Lawson original; as we see on Twitter, it seems to have come from Instagram user @vtdvito (whose account is private).
But Lawson has clearly popularized the image. Harden has yet to respond on social media but probably can fire back with an image from Spain, where the Houston Rockets guard is poised to win a FIBA World Cup gold medal with Team USA.
