I Am A System
It’s impossible to overstate Harden’s self-obsession and selfishness. The three-time scoring champion forced an exit from Brooklyn because he made himself unbearable. His teammates didn’t care in the end because he wasn’t willing to put them first. Check out what he said about the Sixers putting him on a leash.
Harden said (via Fast Philly Sports): “When I mean a leash, I don’t mean just shooting the basketball every time. I think the game and I’m a creator on the court. And I need somebody that trusts me, that believes in me, that understands me, that I’m not a system player. I am a system.”
