What seemed like a far-fetched dream or something that could only happen in NBA 2K is getting more and more traction as we speak. There's a strong possibility that James Harden will be traded from the Houston Rockets to the Brooklyn Nets to team up with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

Needless to say, a huge move like this must be already approved by both superstars and Harden as well, which is a no-brainer considering they'd have three of the most talented scorers of all time teaming up to dominate the Eastern Conference.

However, it seems like that wasn't great news for some of the other guys in the locker room, as some Brooklyn Nets players reportedly don't agree with the move:

"People around Harden contacted some Nets players to discuss the possibility of the perennial All-Star joining the team. Some were supportive, but not all players contacted about a potential Harden-to-Brooklyn deal were in favor of it," Ian Begley of SNYTV reported.


It's safe to state that there aren't going to be many touches for the rest of the team with Kyrie, Harden, and Durant all running and gunning. Also, Harden's reputation for ball-hogging could make the rest of the team not wanting him on board.

Also, perhaps the Nets are just rushing too much, as they're yet to see how Durant and Irving will fare on the court together and healthy. Then again, whenever you have the chance to land a talent like Harden, you pull the trigger, regardless of who you have to give up.

This trade is yet to happen but is already stealing most of the headlines for both good and bad reasons, and that's likely to be a trend for the Nets once (if) they have all these controversial stars playing together.
