James Harden Trolled For His Weight: "Definitely Had A Pre-Game Meal"

James Harden says Rockets 'just not good enough,' doesn't know if situation 'can be fixed'

Harden reportedly wants to be traded to either the Philadelphia 76ers or another contender in the National Basketball Association, and the former MVP had a clear message after the Rockets were swept aside by defending champions the Lakers 117-100 on Tuesday.

"I love this city". The Rockets had informed teams that they want a young franchise cornerstone and a package of first-round draft picks and/or intriguing talent on rookie contracts in return for Harden, sources said.

Harden's desires for a trade out of Houston were made clear in the lead-up to the season, and he seemed to imply Tuesday night with his closing remarks that he still desires to be traded.

The Los Angeles Lakers are now sitting atop the Western Conference standings at 9-3 after making easy work of the Houston Rockets for a second straight game and are hungry for more. "From the beginning of the game, they're just a veteran team obviously, championship team, and one of the best teams we have in this league". "I mean, you can tell the difference in these last two games. And it was clear these last two games".

Former NBA MVP James Harden requested a trade from the Houston Rockets prior to the start of the season, but the Rockets hoped getting him on the court would buy them more time to find the right trade deal.

"He's talking to his own opinion".

Harden, in what represented the closest he's come to a public trade demand, said after Tuesday's 117-100 loss that he doesn't think the struggling Rockets "can be fixed" and that he has "literally have done everything that I can". "I know how much hard work these guys put in.to try to get better every day".

"There's a lot of guys here that want to compete at a high level. He wants to go to Philly from what I'm being told even more so than Brooklyn".
