Following last night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, former MVP James Harden refused to speak to the media. It was the 31-year-old guard's first game back with the Houston Rockets since requesting a trade and missing two preseason games against the Chicago Bulls.

There has been no shortage of drama recently for the Rockets as they try and find a trade for their unhappy 8-time All-Star. Even after Houston traded Russell Westbrook for John Wall, Harden has continued to pressure the front office to send him to another team. Rockets fans took to Twitter to react to Harden's decision to not speak with reporters Tuesday night.

Some Kyrie Irving Fans could not help but point out the similarities between Harden’s actions last night and Kyrie’s last week.

The Houston Rockets have yet to find a suitable trade for Harden that gets them the most assets they can. Harden’s own personal preference and current front-runners to trade for him are the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets, the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks have also been mentioned as destinations for the 3-time scoring champion.
