James Harden signed what was then a max contract extension with the Rockets back on Halloween of 2012. That netted him $13.7 million last season, and he will make $14.7 million next year. However, the salary cap has risen quickly in recent years, so guys getting max extensions this year can make a little more — Chandler Parsons is also going to make $14.7 million next season,...

James Harden Responds To Chandler Parsons Beef Through Clueless Tweets

Chandler Parsons agreed to an offer sheet with the Dallas Mavericks on July 10 worth $45 million over three years.

In Defense of Daryl Morey

Daryl Morey made a mistake. So naturally, the solution is for the collective basketball world to jump down his throat faster than you can say, “Jeremy Lin and two draft picks to the Lakers.” Am I missing something here? Morey messed up this offseason. He gambled on Chris Bosh choosing a better basketball situation in Houston and lost. He allowed Chandler Parsons to become a...

James Harden's cornerstone quote belies what he's trying to accomplish

I want to start out by saying that I am a huge fan of James Harden's for a couple reasons. For starters, being an Arizona State University alumni I love that he's a Sun Devil and what he's done for the program. Not to mention, his game has always reminded me of Paul Pierce's due to his craftiness with the ball and ability to get separation on his jump shots off the...

Harden on non-Dwight teammates: 'Rest of the guys are role players'
