The 2013 NBA Draft is in full swing tonight and as usual with any sporting event. I’m watching it and tweeting “ish” as each pick is announced and Bill Simmons continues to add nothing to the ESPN draft coverage.
I’m not the only person watching the draft and tweeting/critiquing each pick made by the teams. So is former Oklahoma City Thunder And current Houston Rocket swing man/Dwight Howard recruiter, James Harden. Shortly after his former team, the OKC Thunder selected C, Steven Adams from Pitt, Harden tweeted his opinion of the pick. He was amused to say the least.
I wonder if his response was him saying, “You got him to team up with Durant as I have Howard coming to H-town in a couple of weeks to team up with me.” If that was the case, Harden realized that his tweet was going to be seen by the whole world so he deleted the tweet shortly after posting it. I’m sure he will say his phone was stolen or account was hacked. You know, the typical celebrity response when keeping it real on twitter goes wrong.

The Houston Rockets reportedly have deals on the table to send Thomas Robinson to the Chicago Bulls or Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers would send the No. 19 pick to the Rockets for Robinson, or the Bulls would trade No. 20.
The Rockets are trying to move Robinson in order to clear additional cap room to pursue Dwight Howard.
A self-proclaimed realtor is claiming via Twitter that Dwight Howard is looking at houses in Houston today.
It was recently reported that the All-Star center is unlikely to resign with the Lakers and has the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets atop his list of destinations. This is just speculation of course, but assuming he’s not looking for a summer home, this could indicate...
Oklahoma City isn't likely to be the epicenter of the NBA offseason this summer, not after last year's blockbuster trade of James Harden to Houston.
The Thunder are expected to follow last year's roster shake-up with a series of additions in Thursday night's draft - with hopes of returning to the top of the Western Conference.

Trading James Harden appears to have been a rare mistake for Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti especially with how the season ended since Russell Westbrook’s injury really cost them any chance of a return trip to the NBA Finals. Suddenly, OKC finds themselves needing to add some bench pieces to have a chance to remain among the best out West.
