    6 man to MVP. We watched him grow into a superstar. We sided with him in any debate. No matter how big a mistake he made. We flat out defended him every time. Now he on the cusp on a finals birth. That we were robbed of in 2018. Will go for his first championship. A moment I dreamed of so much. I wanted that to be in Houston. Not Brooklyn.

    thank you James. I grew up with you. Scott Foster easily removed a few years off the both of our lives. I don’t regret a moment you were in Houston you put us back on the map for the first time since the 90s. Despite all the memes you were the 2nd greatest rocket to dawn the Houston Red.
    Wish you the best. But not gonna lie this hurts a lot to all us die hard rocket fans. It hurts a lot.

    this song is on repeat remembering of how close we were to winning the whole thing in 2018

    blah blah blah, no one since Hakeem has mattered. No championship, no care.

    Losing Francis and Mobley hurt more

    With the way he forced his way out, I'll miss him like I miss Tracy McGrady and that's to say not much.

    Yeah sucks bro but there was no other option

    I’ll enjoy the years he had, no one can take those away, and they may have been his best yrs, who knows?

    It hurts, you want him to retire a rocket, but life goes on!

    haven't supported hardon since he quit in the spurs series. glad he's gone.

    can we now all agree that hardon travels and flops?

    It sucks. Sadly, many of us saw this coming the moment the WB for CP3 trade went down.

    I'm with you, man. We all knew this was coming, and it was the right move for the franchise and for James. But it doesn't hurt any less. Second greatest Rockets of all-time. My second favorite Rocket of all-time (maybe second favorite athlete ever). And the first Rockets superstar I grew to love as an adult. I've already had two drinks and watched one Harden highlight video tonight. Those will not be my last this week. #EndOfAnEra #BeardForever

    He won’t win a ring. That locker room is going to implode.

    Yeah, it sucks. But the sad music & stuff is all too corny. Give him a proper return when he plays @ Houston with a video & a standing O and we'll all continue with our lives. Dude is still alive, and still plays ball, just in different threads. Tomorrow is another day, Clutchfans. All is goodie in the hoodie

    The last memory I'll have of Harden in the pre-pandemic era is having to defend him from scurrilous accusations that he left skid marks on his game shorts. After that it's all been one dreary blur.
