    Even harden can’t make this team a contender. He can probably get it to the second round of the playoffs but will lose in the first round

    because Harden was expect to do all that
    And hold CJ And Dame

    The most important thing is how much better he made C Wood during their brief stint together. Wall just freezes him out.

    Yep the owner quit to. You are just looking at one point of view. Putting this garbage around him is an insult

    No. The team quit on him by surrounding him with a rebuilding roster, rookie head coach, rookie gm and essentially selling off every asset possible

    Harden is a quitter. Look at his exit in Houston. Last 2 games vs the defending champs (who eliminated him by the way), he doesn't even put up a fight. Soft and no heart.

    Remember this was called the James harden award last few season as he was pretty much getting them regularly on the 2018-2019 insane run.

    he has been a net for 4 weeks and he already has two of them.

    If the owner has no intentions on competing for a championship, it's literally in the team's best interest to trade Harden. Even though it wasn't the most graceful exit, Harden at least put the Rockets in a rebuilding direction with assets going forward.

    Harden has made the Rockets a competitive team every single season he has been here, and if he didn't go up against the most talented team of all time, the Rockets would have a ring. If the ownership doesn't care about winning anymore, let the guy go have a chance to win with a team that does care.

    It's a really weird mentality to assume he quit, when the team quit long before he did.

    We're rebuilding. The same way pretty much every juggernaut did before they began winning. Harden is a quitter and you're a idiot. Have a good weekend

    no disrespect but let’s remember that Harden forced his way out of town 1 yr after mortgaging the franchise’s future to get Westbrook. If you are hating on the fratitas I’m with you, but Harden made his choice.
