I agree Michael. I think the Rockets will look back on this date and regret the move. Even though they pretty much gutted their team and gathered future draft picks in the hopes of chasing Howard, they did have in place the tools to begin to rebuild for their future through the draft. Now they've traded all that away for a guy we now know desires the added pocket change in favor of playing for an organization who are presently at the top and who plan to stay there for a good while. Harden only does well if he has a good support team around him to allow him to work independently, man on man. He had that in OKC. In Houston, he has to be 'the man', the guy who carries the water, the leader. I don't see it happening and when the smoke clears, the Rockets will dread this day.
