Listen: James Harden, Clippers And Russ discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"In a great way great move by Daryl more listen you have Russell <unk> Westbrook and James Harden who grew up together in Los Angeles California's but knowing each other says grade school played together for over five years in Oklahoma City knows each other tendencies listen. You're getting into former M._v._p.. Team up together in their prime. <hes> is no doubt in my mind that is go work. We know what we know what we're GONNA get Outta Russ. We know what we're going to get out of James Harden. These these guys want alabi together. They wanted to play together. Both of these guys forced this trade and stood of each other. James told they're more he wanted Russ in rush told SAM press that he wanted to be in Houston so there's no doubt in my mind that this is going to work. The press is my only concern is is and I questioned. This is Mike Dad Tony and I. I'm a fan of my dad Tony's but I want. I also want to say it is is going to be the pressure on him to put these guys has a position to be successful. Chris Paul once again wanted out. What do you make a Chris Paul at this point in his career? Well I mean you know is just like anything in life collar. If if if I get into it with ten people and ten people that is ready to fight me of sooner or later is not the people that have sooner or later. I have to say you gotta come to a point where I have to look myself in the mirror and say you know what hurt I might be you matter of fact it. Is You sell perfect and I have to do a reality. Check on myself think about this C.. P. Forced his way out of New Orleans. He forced his way from the clippers and now he couldn't co his assists with James Harden. Do you know what type of Guy James Harden nears James Harden is. The most laid back encouraging leader that I've ever been around. He's one of the he's one of the best teammates I've ever had. He's an easy guy to get along with on on and off the court so if you have a problem with James Horrid man it comes to a point where you might have to do a self check now that that's fair now Oklahoma City they got a bunch of draft picks it. You've played in Oklahoma City today. How should they feel? They're well. They should feel great. I think Sampras did a great job. I thought he did a great job with the with apologize trae he maximized and that deal and I thought he did a great job with the restaurant because for for one he's done right by Russ and Russ decide what team he wanted to go to a what was his top team and Sam got the Max that he could for us <hes> think about this. He got a young point. Go from the clippers expired contract. That's coming up. Gallinari multiple first round picks that he got between both teams so hats off to sound Presi have south patrol. We've missed the Klay Bending over there and okay see organization I did they. I think they they did a wonderful job on how they how do both the P._G.. And the rush trae I want to ask you about players demanding trades. I believe if you sign a contract. <hes> you know that's why would be very careful about signing a contract because you have to live throughout the rest of the contract even if you're not happy but in the N._B._A.. Now players demanding trades and they're getting out of it how do you how does that fall on for you. What I think is is a great move collar? I think in in listen we have to give a lot of credit. It's Adam silver ever since he's taken over and been out commissioned commissioner. Everything's been going great."
