Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin as an Example of Why James Harden Isn’t Close to the Best

Posted on 20 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball

It’s good to have confidence, but James Harden saying about himself that he’s the best player in the NBA is closer to comedy material, when you consider he’s probably the main reason the Houston Rockets lost to the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs, and being “so good” is part of why Jeremy Lin was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
