After James Harden walked out of a media session for the Houston Rockets, they moved quickly to finalize a trade for the former MVP. As a scorer and a playmaker, James Harden brings a lot to a team. He will have a chance to win a championship in Brooklyn and will enter the stage of his career where he isn’t the main superstar.

The Brooklyn Nets gave up a lot to get James Harden, but such a move is worth it for a proven superstar. Hopefully, both sides got the assets that they wanted: now we look towards the future and see who wins out in the trade.
