It only feels like a matter of time before the Houston Rockets trade James Harden either to the Brooklyn Nets or the Philadelphia 76ers. When that moment does come, fans will be excited for life after Harden. As it turns out, multiple Houston players are ready for him to leave town as well.
First, John Wall called out his teammate for bringing so much drama to the team. Now, you can add veteran big man DeMarcus Cousins to the list. Straight up, Cousins is sick and tired of how Harden has handled his situation with the team. ‘Boogie’ didn’t hold back in letting Harden know exactly how he feels.
DeMarcus Cousins is more than ready for James Harden to be traded by the Rockets
“The (Harden) disrespect started way before,” Cousins said on Wednesday. “This isn’t something that, you know, all of a sudden started last night. It’s completely unfair to the rest of the guys in the locker room.”
Those are the words of a player who has just about had it with Harden. Can you blame Wall and Cousins for feeling this way? Harden has been basically throwing his current teammates under the bus and has made it more than clear he doesn’t want to play for Houston anymore.
Things have gotten so uncomfortable between the two sides, the Rockets kept Harden away from the team on Wednesday as they work to indeed get a trade done. Both Brooklyn and Philadelphia appear to be the squads making the most noise in finalizing a blockbuster.
We’ll have to wait and see where Harden suits up next, as his time with the Rockets can’t end soon enough.
