    Man with all the "partying" stuff that comes off it would have you believe that Harden wasnt a gym rat either, which he is.

    LMAO also on TIllman's Jet.....this dude really is friends with Fertitta.

    To be fair, when it comes to Westbrook, Perkins is a reliable source. They’re close. Perkins was one of the first ones to report that Russ/Harden are unhappy and wanted out.

    Ohhh but i thought Harden hated tilman because he's cheap?!?!? Here he's styling and profiling on Tilly's jet!! Lol See it's never been about the rockets not doing enough for him. They did everything for him, including on the way out, by sending him where he wanted to be.

    It's purely based on winning a championship. He knew we didn't have the assets to go get him to pieces he needs to take down these super teams. So he went to make his own super team. All while giving us some draft capital back we lost trying to put together a squad for him. Just Harden paying his debts

    Kendrick Perkins has never been that great of a source so when he says this, you take it with a grain of salt. Russ woulndt tell him something like this so he could go blab it to the media. Especially when Russ came out and said it wasnt James harden being his reasoning for leaving.

    Russell westbrooks showing in the playoffs against the lakers was probably the biggest choke/embarrassment of any so called superstar player in all my years of watching the nba.. that is not an exaggeration. He was made to look like a fool that tried out and got cut from HS bball.

    I think we should move on. From Westbrook long ago, from Harden now.

    It's over. Let them play for their new shiny teams and move on.

    Russ is a consummate professional off the court.

    On the court hes the consummate guy in a pick up game nobody wants to play with.

    Russ not as talented as James, James not as committed as Russ.

    And both have achieved similar results in their careers.

    I wish James had Russ intensity/approach. We’d have been better off.

    That’s silly if he wasn’t missing or interfering with practice times — there are rumors that he did and if those instances were frequent it makes sense. If not, then who cares if he parties on his day off? That’s like being mad at a coworker because they’re capable of going to the bar every night and still making it to work on time and completing their work.

    Partied so much that MDA and Morey didn’t want anything to do with him.

    Oh and did I miss all the reports about them doing everything they can to try to trade for Westbrook?

    Some people work hard and play hard.

    For a country that values individual freedom, people sure seem to like to judge what's a
    True that. Celeb gossip helps their clicks and clout. I get it.

    For a country that stresses on individual freedom, we sure like to critique what people do in their off hours.

    Westbrook is a family man. Harden is still living it up.
