Despite finishing second in the MVP race last season, it appears James Harden is starting to frustrate his Houston Rockets teammates. USA Today reported that multiple sources from the team admitted to disliking Harden’s style of play and his aloof personality.
Head coach Kevin McHale was fired after a poor start to the season and his inability to get Harden to change his ways may have played a role in the firing. Houston has hopes of competing for a NBA Championship and will need to improve quickly as every win matters in the positioning of Western Conference teams.
Harden’s lack of defense has always been an issue but it’s becoming a bigger deal now with the team struggling and his lack of effort leading to glaring weaknesses on the defensive end of the court.
OK OK Now to the important question. Is this the work of Lil B and “The Based God Curse?”
