All About Me
Harden is a hypocrite because he complained about the lack of structure in Brooklyn but he refused to follow the rules. He had issues with the franchise’s sports science department when it came to recovery. Harden wanted to do stair runs after games and other intense physical workouts but they wanted him to rest.
Somehow Harden still never reached full fitness because he wouldn’t commit to the regime. “I don’t mean to, like, just down talk to anybody or whatever. It was just, there was no structure, and even superstars, they need structure,” Harden said (via Sports Illustrated). “That’s what allows us to be the best players and leaders for our respective organizations.”
