    Fertitta's way ahead of you... this is obviously his way of saying "we don't want you back... ever".

    He gonna celebrate with five honeybuns, 6 stripclubs, 38 points, 11 boards, 15 assists, 2 blocks, 3 steals, and a rapper of his choice.

    Tilman: absolutely silent about the Rockets over the course of the last month and 12 straight losses.

    Today: let's honor a player on an opposing team.

    @pippsux why on Earth would you agree to that bet??? Lol it's a no brainer that Harden jersey was gonna get retired at some point. They retired Yao's jersey and he never even made it to the WCF with us or won an MVP award either

    Harden will probably need Harden's permission to wear it. I hope Harden will give Harden permission, otherwise Harden will have to switch numbers and everyone will call Harden out on not giving Harden the number.

    I guess we'll find out soon enough but it would be pretty terrible if he doesn't. It'll definitely speak towards the poster, especially when its right there in front for everyone to see and it goes towards cf's.

    If we won the title Harden may have retired a Rocket... he’s just ring chasing now, riding KD’s coat tails

    funny. it sure looks like the nets are riding Harden who by far has been their best player, especially with KD missing nearly half the games played so far and Irving missing his fair share. but yeah stay bitter

    Riding KD’s coat tails when he’s the one currently carrying the team as KD misses game after game? Weird flex

    Harden is the engine of the team

    He holds probably the most regular season records of any rocket and rekt the league for 82 games every year

    quitting, pouting and forcing his way out when he signed a contract was absolutely dispicable but being a quitter doesn’t changed the work he put on

    He's wearing KDs jacket for the last month. Sleeves are too long and it's tight around the midriff but seems to fit otherwise.

    Correct move, but kinda weird to announce it immediately after trading him away while he still has 5+ years to play.

    Like I get the way harden left was fked up, but if u r that petty to say harden doesn't deserved his number to retire as a rocket, basically ignoring 8 years of stats dominance. Like we probably won't see another player break those numbers unless they started their career with us and retired a rocket, assuming that player puts up a decent Stat line consistently for 15-20ish years.
