Houston Rockets Implosion Continues After Postponed Season Opener
James Harden clearly doesn’t want to be a Houston Rocket so this bit of news will help.
The superstar guard may miss a few games to start the season as the league opened up an investigation on a potential visit he made to a holiday event, subsequently breaking the NBA’s COVID-19 protocol. Harden has since tested negative on three straight days.
He was also initially late to training camp after attending a couple of parties down in Atlanta and Las Vegas.

Harden has been living his best life essentially amidst a global pandemic as he continues to push the Rockets to facilitate some sort of trade. At this point, it seems like it’s almost necessary the Rockets trade Harden, but the only question is how much are teams willing to give up for a controllable superstar. According to numerous reports, Harden has been involved in multiple verbal altercations with teammates during practice leading up to the start of the season.
This appears to be getting out of hand quick.
“One thing after another,” Harden wrote in an Instagram post that has since been deleted. “I went to show love to my homegirl at her event (not a strip club) because she is becoming a boss and putting her people in a position of success and now it’s a problem. Everyday it’s something different. No matter how many times people try to drag my name under you can’t. The real people always end up on top.”
The drama continues and it will be curious to see what happens to the Rockets next as they appear to be approaching implosion.
