There’s No Way James Harden Returns To Rockets After Postgame Comments, Right?

*Insert grimace emoji*


Jan 12, 2021

James Harden seems like someone who’s simply had it.

The Houston Rockets star, who was in the headlines before the NBA season even started, got straight to the point Tuesday, depicting his dissatisfaction with the current situation.

“We’re just not good enough. Obviously chemistry, talent-wise, just everything,” Harden said after Houston’s 117-100 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, via Yahoo! Sports.

“… I love this city. I literally have done everything that I can. I mean, this situation is crazy. It’s something that I don’t think can be fixed.”

Check out his full response below:

Houston’s asking price reportedly has been quite steep considering the kind of player Harden is. But the 31-year-old’s recent stretch doesn’t exactly bode well for that trade value, and neither does his shenanigans of being at a strip club that landed him a hefty $50,000 fine.

It’s unclear just what the Rockets’ plan is after the comments, but it’s probably fair to think they trade Harden sooner rather than later, right?
