Harden to the Nets?

#1
RealGM is reporting that Brooklyn and Houston are "close to a deal" for James Harden with (I'm assuming) Levert, Dinwiddie, Allen and draft picks headed to Houston.

If true, what an awful situation for the Rockets. It would put Fertitta on the fast track to the list of worst NBA owners if he isn't already there.

And those 1st rounders OKC nabbed from Houston may look a heck of a lot more valuable if this happens.

And if Durant doesn't look like himself post Achilles tear, is a Kyrie/Harden backcourt any better than Harden/Westbrook or Harden/Paul?

Fertitta has already cemented himself as one of the worst owners in NBA history. Go ask Rockets fans. He has burned a contending franchise to the ground in absolute record time.

Apparently he won't deal Harden to Philly because Morey is there, even though Morey is prepared to offer Simmons and more. That's just a rumour, but even if it's not true, Fertitta is absolutely awful, and an awful human to go along with it. I feel bad for Rockets fans.

It's all about the money. It's been a rough year for Houston basketball fans (no comment about their baseball fans) but Harden jumping to the East and Houston trading their perennial playoff slot for bottom feeder status in the Western Conference is good news for us!

Houston sports teams:
Astros: exposed as the biggest cheaters in sports since perhaps the Black Soxs
Houston: Coach gains GM powers, immediately trades all assets of any value aside from franchise QB for pennies on the dollar, including the best WR in the league. Fire said coach. Have nothing left in the cupboard to really put anything around newly-maxed star QB.
Rockets: Somehow in a worse position than either other franchise.

KD couldn’t handle being teammates with Russ, I imagine Kyrie and Harden together wouldn’t be much better.
The bearded hag being the punk b1tch I always knew he was.

First, he leaves OKC because he’s “too good” to be the 3rd wheel — despite making a Finals appearance.

Then he spends the next 8 seasons in HOU as the traveling chucker, making 1st and 2nd round playoff exits SIX TIMES, finally realizing he isn’t good enough to lead a team as the true alpha.

Closest HOU got was because they had Chris Paul, who has lifted pretty much every team he’s been on to a level or two beyond what they really were.

Now he wants to front run with a player he’s already played with — who happens to be the KING of front runners because he couldn’t lead a non-established title winner as the alpha player.

You can’t make this $#!t up.

95% of today’s supposed “super stars” are just overrated, insecure lil b1tches. FACT!

He was traded from OKC to HOU.

They didn't want to pay him. It's all been clearly documented for years now, but hey, keep on fabricatin' for your hot takes.
They couldn’t pay him because he wanted to be an alpha. If he wanted to win, as he apparently does now, they would have been able keep him. Point is, he left OKC because he wanted to be elsewhere.

Before you shoot your mouth off, how about knowing what you’re talking about. You rarely ever do.

Fabricstin’ .... that effing rich. ;)
