    The fact that Harden is actually trying to defend going to this event probably means he's not the player who tested positive for coronavirus. Just insane coincidence, but it's still a really bad look for him.

    Yes we can very easily blame James Harden. Come back to me when Lebron forces his teammates to sit out games because he went to a Covid spreader event.

    exactly. A lot of fans holding out hope Harden isn't as dumb and selfish as he has been acting. It is what is. Harden sucks no way around it. He has single-handidly stopped Boogie and Wall from debuting after years and months of injury. After 20 years of waiting Harden has single-handedly stopped Silas from having his best team to play his first game with his parents watching at home who could not attend.

    wow. The more you think about it, the more you realize just how awful Harden is being.

    like I said no recovery from this. Harden is at rock bottom IMO

    You are more than welcome to blame Harden and fans are justified in being angry...... what I mean is can you blame Harden for believing he will get what he wants based on the way superstars are treated in the NBA.

    Wow. It means there are at least two players tested positive. The long nightmare started from Danuel House never ends.

    He doesn't care........ none of the superstar players do.... from his perspective he asked for a trade, they have had well over a month to trade him so it is on the Rockets organization........ and in a sense he is right, they should have know Harden wouldn't just indefinitely keep playing and be happy........

    Dude has no concept of consequences, think about it....

    We have no idea if this is because of Harden. McLemore tested positive, but since Harden is theoretically immune for a while, Ben probably caught it from another source. My guess is that the contract tracing was because of him. Harden's absence tonight is due to him breaking protocol, but it's not likely he infected the team.

    EDIT: Just saw this in Woj's tweet: "He {McLemore} isn't the teammate whose positive test initiated contact tracing today on team."

    Harden is not Lebron. But who is.

    That is correct. It wasnt Harden who caused the contact tracing I found out in another thread. but still not a good look for Harden. 2 players on the Rockets team have COVID.

    That isn't going to increase what the Rockets get for him.

    The Rockets organization has really been foolish through this whole situation.......... the idea that they could just keep a superstar and just play him until they decide they want to deal his was incredibly stupid in the current environment in the NBA. They have only harmed their leverage and trade return.

    That is what I am pissed about. I expect superstar players, especially those that are either young or have not won a ring to get what they want under the insane culture of the current NBA. After I saw what Leonard did I knew things were not the same.
