Nick Johnson ready to move on from tweet about James Harden

As soon as Rockets second-round draft pick Nick Johnson said the word ‘tweet’, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey laughed and said Johnson might want to stay away from Twitter. Johnson during last season had sent a tweet saying, “James Harden plays NOOOOOOOOOO DEFENSE.” The tweet was quickly deleted and Johnson followed with a tweet saying […]

James Harden throws out first pitch at Astros game

The Rockets shooting guard threw out the first pitch at the game, and acquitted himself pretty well. There's an unfortunate tradition at baseball games where celebrities show up, take the mound for a ceremonial first pitch and torpedo the ball into the ground or throw it ten feet wide of home plate. James Harden did not want to join the excessively long club of failed first ceremonial first pitchers, but he had his chance on Sunday afternoon. Fortunately for the Rockets guard, he acquitted himself pretty decently, throwing a decent pitch that got some of the plate (albeit a bit up in the...

Broussard: Knicks open to Harden-for-Melo

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony would like to play together. If LeBron and Melo end up in Houston, James Harden could end up on the Knicks, ESPN’s Chris Broussard reports in his Insider piece on LeBron’s preferred destinations. Here’s how it would work: Houston is one of the five teams on LeBron’s list of preferred destinations. If the Rockets cleared enough cap space to sign James by trading Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, they would then try to execute a sign-and-trade with the Knicks for Anthony.

Rockets consider Harden trade to get LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, Chris Broussard says

Rockets consider Harden trade to get LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, Chris Broussard says

LOL. According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, the Rockets would consider moving James Harden to the Knicks in a sign-and-trade deal to acquire Carmelo Anthony in a summer swing that would see them send Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin elsewhere for cap space and also sign LeBron James. Sounds interesting. Except for who reported it. If the option is sign nobody or sign LeBron and Anthony while jettisoning Harden, the Rockets would do it in a second. But if LeBron James is willing to join the Rockets but won't sign unless they trade the league's best shooting guard who's entering his prime for a still...
