    I know it seems like Harden loves Basketball with him going to Rice games on his days off and him spending every offseason practicin... eh.. I mean developing a brand new basketball maneuver while taking part in any kind of summer league or pickup game he can compete in. I know there is speculation that when James Harden has a bad shooting night he stays hours after at the facility putting up shots.. has anyone actually seen that?

    BUT, look... thats all outside of the team. James Harden actually HATES to practice with his team

    Some anonymous executive on an opinion site that tends to bash Harden is now inside information?
    There has been nothing in Harden’s past that says he doesn’t practice or work harder than almost any player in the league. It’s the next evolution in narrative-after the no defense has been debunked-have to make up things to slight this dude.

    Harden is pure compliance and sense you have no clue of the endeavors involved to develop his game, you deserve no tissue paper.

    New York Times and an anonymous exec. Sounds legit.

    people like OP will fall for anything...read what u post

    Since when is the OPINION of a FORMER WC EXECUTIVE (whoever tf that is) something that should be taken seriously? Does he know Harden, people close to Harden, or people close to the Rockets and involved in the coaching search? What’s next, Kenny Smith says he thinks Harden won’t want any coach that’s not a big name, and people on CF will run with it and make threads about it like it’s fact?

    or maybe this thread is some sort of sarcasm that’s not coming off well...or maybe I’m just giving OP way too much credit and benefit of the doubt

    stop running with unsubstantiated BS from nobodies as fact, especially when it’s just that person’s opinion

    I was going to tell you chill out, he’s obviously a troll, probably a fan of another team and trying to spread hate. But then clicked his name and saw he’s been a member since 2005!!!!! How does a grown person act like that???

    a lot of people on here are so quick to believe anything if it involves slander of Harden or putting him in a bad light

    we have several people in the other fake news, clickbait thread saying that’s why Harden won’t ever win a title, telling Harden to shut up, or saying things like “he doesn’t get to talk” like he’s some sort of child because some rando who’s name we don’t even know gave his opinion based off his perception of Harden

    nothing Marc Stein just presented, especially from some former WC exec, even deserves a thread...posting threads like this is only a slight step up from creating threads based off some random nobody with 200 followers opinion on Twitter

    The Rockets will look at JVG? Cool, we’ve known that for awhile. What that random person said isn’t even worth the time of day.

    It’s articles like these that prove why people hate Harden and the Rockets. Straight fabricates content presented as facts.

    People like the OP will take this and run with it as a reason not to like us. It’s a never ending story.

    You have a lot of hard evidence of James playing tons of basketball during the offseason, working on his new moves, you've seen the videos, you've seen the videos of him working out like a maniac into the AM after games, getting shots up, running the stairs at Toyota center, heard his teammates rave about his work ethic...but you're going to throw all of that way because one guy, who doesn't even know him, that said that he thinks James Harden doesn't want to practice.

    Get a clue dude. Delete this thread.

    It seems like his compliance for the past half decade conveniently allowed him to move his feet less. Let's see if he can comply the other way or whether that "compliance" is just him being more conviencined. His compliance also allowed him to dominate the ball for some seasons more than any other player in the league racking up absurd scoring totals. I don't see the sacrifice where I would call it "compliance".
