James Harden was already a great player during his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and prior to the 2012-2013 season when he was traded to the Rockets, he was on the verge of being a star. He is now one of the best player’s in the NBA, and he’s looking to do a lot more coming off a MVP season.
Harden has done most of his damage in Houston already, and that’s where he wants to play his final NBA career game.
Per the Houston Chronicle:
As for where it will all end, Harden did not entertain a thought of changing anything. Comfortable as he is in the spotlight, he showed no signs of a pull from Hollywood for a return to his native Los Angeles. He had little reason to want to want to change. Signed through the 2017-18 season, when asked if he intends to play the rest of his career in Houston, Harden did not hesitate.
“Definitely,” Harden said. “Definitely it’s going to end here.”
Harden averaged 27.4 points, 7 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game over 81 games last season. We have finishing 2015-2016 with averages of 26.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game.
