    All the talk of him not being a true leader or good teammate is complete non sense.

    True Lin fans are against *hitting on his teamates.

    If your girlfriend really loves you, she would never hit your dog while you're away.

    When Harden plays selfishly, it has nothing to do with Lin. I hope he keeps up this kind of play - playing off the ball for stretches makes him more efficient and the team much more unpredictable.

    Harden, "He's a talented guy, it's hard to do what he did off the bench."

    But he give no credit?

    I'm gonna address the elephant in the room.

    Do you think chandlers comments had anything to do with this? (also i'm sure hardens injury, him being a good person also are things that likely went into this)

    Maybe james heard the comments, maybe they had a players meeting? Maybe he saw how well Jeremy plays when he can be aggressive and reverting to Jeremy for a few stretches a game can benefit us and he realizes that?

    Either way, aside from Omer, our chemistry is starting to develop nicely!

    So PnRs gotta run through him first. Thank you Coach Harden for approving it.

    Chandler's words didnt fall on deaf ears, truly the leader [​IMG]

    Parsons' comments had absolutely nothing to do with it.

    The video of the actual interview showed Parsons saying something that was completely different to what he was "quoted". In fact, the Yahoo article blatantly made up things that Parsons never even said.

    This is GREAT to hear for a Rockets fan. Hope this helps bring our team's chemistry up another level and they continue to build on it. Much respect to Harden for doin this...

    Wow the quote was way different than what was actually said. Thanks for sharing.

    But either way, I'm sure the ball getting sticky and James holding on to it just a little bit more than he has to has been discussed amongst the team.

    It's nice to see we can play with James and Jeremy and they can coexist. (Not like it's never happened before, they both went off agains OKC last yr and a few other games, especially James)

    It's really nice to see James looking out for the rest of the team though. He does have the games where he is absolutely on however, and those games might be good times for more iso.
