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,...

Rockets Rumors: Houston may bring Francisco Garcia back

The Houston Rockets swung and missed this year in free agency, going after LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh and not signing any of them.

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...

Surprising place still selling Dwight Howard Lakers jerseys!

LAX airport is the third largest in the United States and also happens to be located in Los Angeles, which is, you guessed it, the same city as the Lakers.
