Report: New Rocket once told by teammate he must pick side between James Harden and Dwight Howard
There was plenty of discord between James Harden and Dwight Howard when they played for the Rockets together.
Just how bad did it get?
That fun trip down memory lane is part of an excellent feature on the current Rockets I suggest reading in full.
Houston obviously chose its side correctly. Harden will win MVP this year and is leading the Rockets in the second round. Howard has declined considerably, and his Hornets didn’t make the playoffs.
Harden’s relationship with Howard was one reason for concern with the Rockets adding Chris Paul. But Harden has clearly learned from that time, and he and Paul seem to get along well.
