Crap... if he fall in love with a stripper in the ATL we r toast. :banghead:

Houston hasn't wavered in what the Rockets consider a fair asking price for Harden: a package that includes a young franchise cornerstone and a bundle of first-round picks and/or talented players on rookie contracts, sources said.

The Rockets have been adamant that they will not be rushed into trading Harden, regardless of how uncomfortable the situation has become with the three-time scoring champion failing to report to training camp while partying in Atlanta and Las Vegas.
GO HAWKS!!! :thumbsup:

I read Philly is on his preferred list. Even if James Harden stays in Houston I don't believe Houston is a true contender. All signs point to coming to the East so far and that sucks.

James Harden is making things even easier for Lebron James.
With all this BS in Houston since last season and the season before it, add the LAC drama, too. What a damn joke!

This coming season the Phoenix and Denver seem to be the only competition the Lakers have.

Bobby Marks: I think with Harden, and we’ll wait and see what he has to say, but from the outside looking in, it is probably the worst case of player empowerment that I’ve ever seen in my 20 years with the Nets and five years in the media.

Gary Trent Jr. declined Trail Blazers’ extension offer

2021-22: $12 million

2022-23: $12.96 million

2023-24: $13.92 million

2024-25: $14.88 million

Total: $53.76 million

Is that enough for the 21-year-old sharpshooter who had an awesome bubble? Or would he rather wait until 2021 restricted free agency, when he’ll be eligible for any amount up to a max contract?

The Utah Jazz are one of the few teams to have announced plans to start the season with fans in the arena, playing host to up to 1,600 attendees, socially distanced from each other and the players. Rudy Gobert: I think that if they make it happen they probably have the scientific evidence that it would be safe for us and for the fans in attendance. Derrick Favors: I think that’s an amazing thing to do and hopefully everybody can stick to the safety protocols and we can continue to build and bring more fans in there.

I got a laugh from this. Helping Dwight get 2.5m from LA is lucrative and unexpected?

____________________________

Nabaa claims she helped revive Dwight’s NBA career — using her “network and contacts to connect Mr. Howard with individuals that resulted in his lucrative and unexpected contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.” She says Howard even thanked her and gave her partial credit for helping land the deal during a national television interview. Now, the women are demanding at least $50,000 in unpaid wages — plus other fees and damages. We reached out to Howard for comment — so far, no word back.

 

– via TMZ Staff @ TMZ.com

In fact, the women claim Dwight fired his groundskeeper, butler and maid — the people who run his 35,000 square foot home — forcing the women to pick up the slack. One of their new tasks, according to the suit, including caring for Howard’s exotic snake collection. In their suit, the women say the collection is “comprised of a number of large snakes” including one named Cleopatra — “a constrictor that can grow to a final length of 25 feet and over 200 pounds.” FYI, Howard’s snake collection was once featured on the show “Tanked.”

Quinton Mayo: Scott Brooks says there’s a good chance Westbrook won’t play back-to-backs this season.

Lebron is using hair Illusion or something. When I was watching the game last night I could see the painted in areas.

Remember Carlos Boozer?

Guess whose fan base just became a little bigger and a LOT more annoying. Lacob’s way of bringing in the circus for ratings.
