    Say Harden wins his titles with the Nets before his contract expires would you accept him back if he wanted to come back? Like how Lebron did for Cleveland.

    Yesterday I would have said no. Today, I’m unsure. Who knows what tomorrow holds.

    yes but it won't happen.

    there is no need to pretend he's coming back.

    he wants us to think he loves Houston.

    he wants Phoenix to think he loves them

    he wants LA to think he loves them.

    He has shoes to sell and restaurants to fill


    James Harden loves James Harden and his mom.

    It'll take me awhile but I would. It would have to be with an understanding that he can't just come in and dictate personnel moves like how he did before. I hated that we traded CP3.

    It depends. I'm assuming Harden is going to be 35 or 36 before he becomes a FA. He has to learn how to play off-ball instead of trying to be his prime iso self. I don't think, at 35+, he can be as effective as he was.

    Also, Cleveland was really bad after LeBron left, the first time. Like really really bad. So why wouldn't you welcome back the best player in the world to your team, regardless of how he left? Like @Houston77 said, this team is going to look drastically different once Harden becomes a FA.

    Don't think he's going to invest so much time, money, and energy in taking care of himself as LeBron did. Don't think the NBA would let him slide if he decides to invest in HGH either.

    If Levert doesn’t pass his physical, we may have to accept him back quicker than expected lol

    I’d respect Harden, KD, and Westbrook if they all went back to okc in 2 years on cheap deals and win a title where it all started

    Harden won't come back if we are not good enough and can't be fixed. If we are good enough, maybe we won't need harden's old ass.

    if he sells everything in Houston and wants to come back, NO! If he still roams around Houston in the off-season, yes. If he does come back, it will be a lesser Harden.

    Lebron was a lot younger when he went back. Harden will be 35 at the earliest. Maybe come back as the sixth man? (hee hee)

    Nets win back to back titles
    Ferntits accumulates assets and dumps long term salary to make the team attractive to a buyer
    Rockets lose a lot this season and next. Top 4 pick bad.
    Actual rich multi billionaire buys team
    Harden signs in Houston
    Walls expiring traded for Durant (who demands a SnT) with a couple of Nets picks being returned
    3rd star added
    Still lots of picks

    Back 2 backs again in Htown!
