It doesn’t sound like James Harden has a whole lot of fans in the Houston Rockets locker room.
The star guard effectively has talked his way out of town, leaving the Rockets with no choice but to move him — and it seems likely he’s headed to either the Brooklyn Nets or Philadelphia 76ers.
Harden has been quick to say the situation with the Rockets is unfixable. Judging by comments made by DeMarcus Cousins on Wednesday, the bridge might be burned.
Of course, Cousins is right.
Rockets players unfairly were dragged into all of this, even after the organization made a good faith effort to improve things around Harden. They added Cousins and Christian Wood, then swapped Russell Westbrook for John Wall.
Harden wasn’t at practice Wednesday, and it seems like he might be out of Houston by the time the team is scheduled to play again Thursday.
