James Harden has had a successful career with the Houston Rockets, but many of his worst NBA moments continue to come against the San Antonio Spurs.
Much to the enjoyment of San Antonio Spurs fans everywhere, the Houston Rockets are not having a good offseason. After their flame-out against the Lakers in the postseason, they’ve lost their coach and general manager, and now both of their stars appear to want out as well.
Not long after it was reported that Russell Westbrook wasn’t happy with his role on the team, James Harden is now trying to force his way to the Brooklyn Nets. Given how many assets the Rockets gave up to get their power duo, the fact that neither of them are unhappy is disastrous for the franchise.
Given that Houston has always been one of the Spurs’ biggest rivals, it’s not exactly heartbreaking to see what’s happening — in fact, it’s pretty funny. San Antonio itself is in the midst of a quasi-rebuild that will likely see a star depart this winter, but their wealth of youth and assets still put them in a better position than the Rockets as of now.
Since the news is leaning toward James Harden potentially leaving the team he put on the map for the past eight seasons, now is the perfect time to look at some of his lowlights against the Silver and Black over the years.
