Report: Backups were beating starters, talking trash when James Harden threw ball at teammate
Jimmy Butler, trying to force a trade, famously led the third-stringers over the starters at a 2018 Timberwolves practice.
James Harden, who wants the Rockets to trade him, seemingly followed the practice-intensity precedent. He reportedly threw a ball at Houston rookie Jae’Sean Tate during one of multiple arguments in the last week.
Except the context was completely different.
Someone is trying to make Harden look bad – and succeeding.
