James Harden, who requested a trade from the Houston Rockets this past off-season, expresses his frustration to the media after a 117-100 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. Harden went on about how his team simply wasn’t good enough, chemistry and talent-wise. The full press conference clip is below.
The Houston Rockets are currently 3-6 on the NBA season but you can tell the chemistry isn’t there, James clearly wants out and it is reported that the Rockets are looking for a young superstar in exchange for James Harden. Ben Simmons has been floated around in trade rumors especially since old rockets general manager Daryl Morey now works in Philadelphia. This won’t be the first trade the franchise had to do as of late, Russell Westbrook was traded for John Wall and a first round pick this off-season and the two stars clearly aren’t working.
Will the Houston Rockets trade James to team up with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in Brooklyn? Or just ship him off to a sorry franchise like the New York Knicks, regardless it’s gonna be something to keep an eye for.
