The disgruntled superstar James Harden said that the Houston Rockets were “not good enough” after losing to the Los Angeles Lakers for the second time in a row on Tuesday night. He added that he did not think of this team. Have enough ability to become a competitor.
“I love this city. Literally, I have done everything possible,” Harden said after the Rockets lost 117-100. “I mean, this situation is crazy. I think it can’t be solved.”
Sources said that this is Harden’s most urgent public request during the offseason.
Sources told ESPN that Houston has held trade discussions with several teams, but is determined to remain patient until Nike’s asking price is met.
Since Harden left the training camp, his sprained right ankle has caused him to miss one game, and the Rockets (3-6) have lost four of the five games. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, he has scored no more than 20 points per game in the past four games. This is his longest record since the 2011-12 season. This is his last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. .
This loss is particularly uncompetitive, as the Rockets trailed 35-14 at the end of the first quarter.
Harden said: “To be honest, we weren’t even close to that team-obviously the defending champion-and all the other elite teams there.” “I mean, you can tell the difference between the two games.
“We are not good enough-chemistry, talent, just everything. Obviously, this is the case for both games.”
