    James Harden organizes Rockets players-only minicamp

    HOUSTON - For the second consecutive year Houston Rockets guard James Harden has organized a players-only minicamp scheduled for next week.

    Last September Harden had the Rockets players together for a minicamp in Los Angeles.

    "James is doing everything," said Corey Brewer, Rockets guard/forward. "He is showing he wants to be a leader

    "He's the franchise player. He signed the extension. So it's his team, and he's doing all the right things to do what we need to do to have a chance to win championships."

    Harden's plan is to hold the minicamp in Miami. However, the potential of bad weather hitting South Florida may cause the Rockets players to work in a different city.

    "I'm for sure taking part, but we got to figure out what the plans are," said Eric Gordon Jr., Rockets guard. "There could be a hurricane coming through there.

    "So we might do it somewhere else."

    Gordon thinks the players-only minicamp is a terrific idea.

    "It's good," Gordon said. "This will be our second time being all together.

    "Everybody getting acclimated with each other. I think we have a very interesting team, where we can do some things this year."

    Gordon said the Rockets players had a "good group" for players-only workouts around the same time as the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

    "It was just everybody getting together," Gordon said. "It wasn't a real structured thing.

    "It was just guys working out together."

    Brewer is looking forward to getting together with his teammates.

    "I've got to go down there with the fellas," Brewer said. "It's a good thing. We got to get together. Get to know each other, team camaraderie. You need that, especially now days the way the NBA is. A lot of good players, but you got to be a team.

    Harden's version of minicamp = 45 minutes for a light scrimmage, spend the rest of the day on South Beach then hit up the strip club at night.

    Yes, that doesn't make sense. He avoided the Zika in Rio by skipping out on the Olympics. So why put the team in peril by going to Miami? I guess he can't find a court in Houston.

    South Beach is one of the most distracting places on Earth. 45 minutes is generous.
