Nobody in Houston is happy with James Harden after the player decided to express his real feelings on the team on Tuesday night. The Beard is unhappy with the Rockets, he wants out as soon as possible and his way to express that didn’t get too many fans in H-Town.
John Wall quickly reacted to Harden’s comments, calling him out for giving up on the team so quickly and easily. He made it clear that the situation could be overturned as long as everybody was on the same page, but Harden isn’t.
“We can’t dwell down on it because it’s only been nine games. Come on, man, you want to jump off the cliff after nine games? There’s a lot of basketball still to be played.”
After that, it was the turn of DeMarcus Cousins to talk and he also had some big things to say about Harden and how he handled this entire situation. Harden called out his teammates on Tuesday and obviously, that didn’t sit well with anybody within the organization. Boogie had enough of that and reminded everybody that the shooting guard was disrespectful to the team since the start of training camp.
“The disrespect started way before any interview,” Cousins told reporters Wednesday. “Just the approach to training camp, showing up the way he did, the antics off the court, I mean the disrespect started way before. So this isn’t something all of a sudden happened last night.”
“It is completely unfair to the rest of the guys in the locker room,” Cousins said of Harden.
