The Houston Debacle
Harden was an icon in Houston before he unceremoniously handed in a trade request. Then he showed how much he cared about the fans when he partied in Atlanta and Las Vegas. He tried to say that he traveled to prepare for the new season but that’s difficult to do from a nightclub in Sin City.
The Beard ruined it for everybody because he was a megastar there. In his final game for the team against the Lakers, he put his teammates on full blast. He insisted that they weren’t good enough and that he had taken them as far as he could. It’s typical of Harden because he does this with every team (via Forbes).
