Harden is one of the most petulant players to step onto a basketball court. He was the main star in Houston before he demanded to leave because he supposedly wanted to chase rings. That didn’t go well because the Brooklyn Nets tried to build a super team and failed. Then he wound up in Philadelphia but flattered to deceive when it came to the postseason.
Some players are unlucky but Harden’s attitude rubs many people up the wrong way. Many fans lost patience with ‘The Beard’ because they think he has a selfish attitude. That’s why the saga surrounding a potential return to Houston infuriated so many NBA supporters. They stopped caring about him and wanted it to be over (via Fox Sports).
