James Harden caused the postponement of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s season opening game a few days ago. He want to party, and did, taking his girlfriend to a night club a day earlier, exposing himself and other Rocket players to the virus, giving the NBA just cause to halt the game just three hours before tip off.
This all-star performer has become a pox on the league, his team, and the game itself. It is time for the NBA to get tough with Harden. If not, the league can just flounder into chaos, as fines do nothing to hinder this malcontent (as of wanting a trade) basketball player.
James Harden has become what is wrong with some of today’s professional athletes. They are, in fact, self-centered individuals that have no respect toward others, the game, and the fans with regard to contracts, rules, and the betterment of the game itself.
