Houston's James Harden reminds other NBA teams why they should trade for him with sparkling 44-point debut

"Let's talk about James Harden because he played his first game and by the way, think about the circumstances here because James Harden that they make the trade right. Russell Westbrook goes out. John Wall comes in Russell Westbrook. You know he was a bit of a problem. Hardened wanted somebody else in here. He wanted wall. They get wall. Everything's fine, You know, like, maybe we hardened gets traded at some point, but that's gonna fix things and obviously doesn't it doesn't do that at all. Hardened doesn't show up for the start of the season on time. He's not exactly interested. So you have a brand new head coach of Brand new GM and your superstar is M I A Great. Where is he? Paul? Silas? I don't know. I've no it is Stephen Silas. That's it. Yes, it is. Dad's Paul. Right? So, Yeah. So, Stephen Silence. I'll get there sees forgettable. That's why James Harden doesn't like him. No, I don't know anything about Steven stylist on that year T bash the guy, but I'm gonna make that mistake more than once now. Here's the thing for Harden did not show up and be partying and then get punished for that. And then, a week later, he's out partying again. If he dodges, he dodges the fine because the game gets postponed that the Rockets were supposed to open their season against the thunder. That game did not happen because the Rockets didn't have eight players to play the game. Now one of those guys that wasn't available Was hard and so if hard and was there, I think they would have been able to play the game. I'm not 100% on that. But I'll double check that, but he made his debut finally for the Rockets. Tonight now. Great game. By the way. I mean, my goodness hell of a game. They played the Blazers and the Blazers air Great, like when I look at the NBA, and I think about teams that just I would love to watch on any given night. If you tell me that team is playing somebody decent. I'm gonna watch that game Blazers. Absolutely. Top five favorite team like I I just loved Damian Lillard. I love the attitude over there. I just think there are fun Team. So Blazers Houston Rockets game goes into overtime. CJ McCollum playing lights out, hitting three pointers James Harden in his debut, playing lights out basketball, You look great. And I'll give you the stat line because for hard and it's one of those things where you're gonna be a little worried about what he looks like. There's been questions about what kind of shape is in and so for him to not get that work in its already shortened off season. You just kind of wonder. Okay? How does James Harden look? Well, he answered every question he possibly could. In 43 minutes. James Harden 44 points 17 assists. I mean, wow. Wow. Like, what else can you say? Just And and that's the fascinating thing about all of this. This is where it gets really curious because You see, James Harden put up 44 17. And everyone immediately forgets about everything that happened and That's why he gets away with it right. Like everybody is going to be going nuts now. Anybody that is in the conversation to get James Harden? They want him right? Like I'll be curious. If you're a fan of the teams there six teams right now that have been connected the heart and that he said that he's willing to go there off the top of my head. I know Milwaukee. Portland, Philly, Brooklyn, Boston. I know missing one more, but To be a fan of one of those six teams that hardens interested in For all the debating and questioning of what kind of teammate is he? What kind of effort is he going to put in? What does he look like? In two years, you know, Because obviously you're trading for these two years. But maybe you want to keep him around. What does he look like? You know, can you buy into him with all of his habits that we've talked about so much over the last couple of weeks? Well, you put up 44 17 his first game back. Who cares, right? That's what a lot of people are going to say. And if you're a team that's desperate to win right now, That's what a lot of them are going to say. That's what a lot of front offices are going to say. That's the argument is he is such a supremely talented player that as much as we've squabbled Over who he is and what he's about, and what his trade value is. He is this ridiculously good at scoring the basketball and This is what the league is for. They play basketball, So you put the character stuff aside. If he's good enough of doing the job that's the life of a superstar.
