Regardless of the modifications going on in Houston, reports have suggested James Harden stays committed to the Firecrackers.

In simply the past couple of weeks, H-Town has seen a variety of their prominent members move on, consisting of ex-GM Daryl Morey, previous head coach Mike D’Antoni, and (soon) star point player Russell Westbrook.

And while there is every indication this team plans to remain competitive, there are rumblings that Harden may not so “untouchable” after all …

If the Firecrackers are even going over a Harden deal, it indicates they’re reasonably near to starting a full-on rebuild. Without Harden and Westbrook (who has already asked for a trade), there’s truly no chance for them to stay competitive in the West.

A group like the Nets can use them choices and several young, talented gamers with which to establish and contribute to their stockpile.

In return, Brooklyn gets to construct an outrageous superteam with James Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving. Not only would that likely lead to the very best offending group ever, but it’s hard to think of a situation in which they wouldn’t reach the NBA Finals.

For all the criticisms Harden receives, he’s an exceptional gamer, unstoppable scorer, and one of the very best guards we have actually ever seen.

Whether we’ll see him in Houston, or Brooklyn, nevertheless, remains to be seen.
