DeMarcus Cousins Spoke Freely on the James Harden Situation

s NBA Superstar James Harden was traded to the Brooklyn Nets earlier today, big man DeMarcus Cousins spoke freely on how he truly felt about how Harden conducted himself since the start of training camp in early December.

The Houston Rockets have not played well prior to Wednesday's Blockbuster trade, and lost four of their last five games. Harden was arguably the biggest culprit in their losess. He displayed minimal effort, not running back and playing transition defense, but averaged 17.4 points on 37.8% shooting in the stretch. This played a role on the series of trades which is detailed below.

The Blockbluster Trade Details

James Harden was clearly frustrated after the Rockets lost to the Lakers, and didn't hold anything back. In their press conference after the loss, he explained that the team simply wasn't good enough, and that he felt the situation could no longer be fixed. These comments completely alienated himself from his teammates. John Wall was frustrated that Harden was virtually giving up so easily, especially after only a mere 9 games:

"When one through 15 guys are all on the same page and they commit and they know their role and they know what they want to get out of this and that's to win, it'll all be fine. But when certain guys in the mix that don't want to buy in all as one, it's going to be hard to do anything special or anything good as a basketball team".

Cousins, who is known to not be afraid to voice his opinions. He provided more insight with the following comments:

"I just feel it's a way about handling business . He can feel however he wants to feel about the organization or whatever his current situation is, but the other 14 guys in the locker room have done nothing to him. For us to be on the receiving end of some of the disrespectful comments and antics, it's completely unfair to us".

Cousins unloaded a lot more of what he truly felt, which is heard in the video below. Harden's comments after the loss to the Lakers were premature, and his comments were the nail in the coffin on what was a 9 year tenure. He still is arguably the best player in franchise history outside of Olajuwon, but his exit from the franchise certainly didn't result in him having more fans in Houston.
