James Harden is someone who is known for wanting to be traded from teams when the going gets tough. He was traded from Houston and the same thing happened in Brooklyn. Overall, there is a very obvious pattern at play as it pertains to Harden and his trade desires. Typically, he will begin by getting a bit overweight and out of shape. Furthermore, he starts holding out from practices, which makes his team that much more frustrated. Finally, the team gives in and trades Harden as they don't want to deal with the mess.
Currently, the Philadelphia 76ers are dealing with that situation. Harden has made it clear that he no longer wants to play for the team. However, it is not going to be that easy for him. Reports have indicated that there isn't much of a market for Harden right now. Consequently, the Sixers have stopped engaging in trade talks. As you can imagine, Harden is not happy about this, at all. In fact, it was reported last night that Harden told a group in China that he thinks Morey is a "liar." In the clip below, Harden makes it clear he will never play under Morey, again.
