If James Harden isn’t happy, chances are he’s not winning another MVP or scoring title this season.
The Lakers defeated the Houston Rockets 117-100 on Tuesday. After a tough loss at home, Harden was brutally honest about wanting out of Houston.
“I love this city,” Harden said, via ESPN. “I literally have done everything that I can. I mean, this situation is crazy. It’s something that I don’t think can be fixed.”
Harden was adamant about wanting out of Houston while involved in trade discussion scenarios.
It’s honestly great to see Harden speaking the truth for once since he took offense to BSO’s confirming he broke NBA COVID-19 protocol last December.
John Wall didn’t speak as much on the situation and tried to avoid it during the Rockets post-game press conference.
“I think it’s been a little rocky, can’t lie about that,” Wall told reporters. “I don’t think it’s been the best it could be, to be honest. That’s all I really could say.”
“When you have certain guys in the mix that don’t want to buy in as one, it’s gonna be hard to do anything special as a basketball team…it hurts,” Wall said.
