[Video] Harden demands ball. Selfish/Petulant? Did Paul misread the play?

    Video looks like something small and pointless. BUT it's a long season and things can get bad if we start losing. I can see James taking a bad shot or turning the ball over, then CP yelling at him or not giving him the ball next play. All of sudden they going back & forth in the timeout. Stephen A Smith on ESPN the next day saying theres a divide among the team between Harden vs CP supporters. This is worse case scenario but let's not act like it's far fetched

    Carmelo did this three times in yesterdays game, including twice in one play... pretty normal when you have two ball dominant players.. Harden is actually pretty chill normally and more often then not defers to Paul

    by the end of the year what matters is we have the best possible seed and non injured and fatigued team (harden, ariza playing <35 min pg, cp3, everyone else playing <30 min pg)

    those 2 will be producing 70-75% of the team's offense

    around 80 points produced a night

    around 50 by harden

    and around 30 by cp3

    Nope. Wrong poster


    I know this is a Rockets site and we're all fans of the team. But some of you are stuck in a bubble where everything regarding the team starts & ends only in the most positive, rosy scenario known to man. Anything less than that isn't a reality for you. But in the real world, anything can happen. Nothing is promised. The odds are that their will be bumps in the road. Given CP's demanding style of play, and Harden's careless personality, they will most likely have disagreements. The question is how will these disagreements play out

    Or, except for people in a "bubble" of hunting for "negative" soap opera drama, everyone else knows every single NBA title team has on-court disagreements, and only narrowly-focused Rockets fans here haven't yet noticed that the OP video is more the rule, not the exception.

    I guarantee you they've both forgotten about this play by now. It's nothing, they both saw the lane and wanted to exploit it. After Paul got the pick set and drove to the lane, you can tell Harden was approving of the play taking shape.

    I think you're downplaying it a bit. It's not normal for 2 superstars to visibly show their frustration on the court. Yes it was very little. But it did happen. You can't ignore something that's happened twice already & early in the season. Hopefully they'll get on the same page. But you're looking at this through rose colored glasses. I don't like Harden showing his frustration in game like that

    No I am not. I don't think he's a complete idiot. He's just a paid mouthpiece who gets on tv to keep ppl talking


    The divide comment was hypothetical in which CP & James got into it. I didn't mean it as fact
