NBA news: Rockets get Victor Oladipo in blockbuster James Harden trade

The move comes after multiple comments from the reigning scoring champion about wanting to move on from the Rockets. James Harden created multiple rumors of him being done in H-Town after failing to show up to team practices and being spotted in clubs on social media. Many of his teammates and peers criticized Harden’s work ethic and attitude after he publicly criticized the team stating they “just aren’t good enough” and that he had “done everything I can”.

It seems the Rockets will be playing for the future after trading their franchise player for draft capital. Could this could be the start of an eternal age of mediocrity or the biggest draft fleece in recent history?
