James Harden posts a suggestive picture on Instagram following Adam Silver’s comments on the Rockets-Harden fiasco.
The James Harden and Houston Rockets drama has taken the NBA landscape over by storm. Harden’s continuous refusal to works things out with the Rockets management has caused their relationship to worsen as each day passes.
Just last night, during a press conference, James Harden paid no attention to any questions regarding his trade requests. He very boldly said, “Next question.”
Harden has however, suited up for the Rockets in a couple preseason games. Despite this, reports have surfaced that he has no interest in seeing whether or not he can mesh well with his teammates.
John Wall was asked about whether or not the Harden fiasco bothers him, and he said that the team is only focused on getting better. Wall is also ‘blocking out’ the Harden trade rumors noise.
Adam Silver talks about James Harden and the Houston Rockets.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was doing his due diligence by responding to questions posted to him by the media.
One of the questions pertained to Harden. “To the extent that the player is unhappy with his team, or a team is unhappy with a player, it’s always the league’s strong view that those matters get handled behind closed doors. The expectation is everyone is professional,” said Adam Silver.
This can be perceived as Silver wanting the Rockets to keep their intentions in-house, and be careful with regards to intel about Harden leaking.
Mere minutes after Silver’s comments to the media, James Harden posts this on his Instagram.
*The Heat aren’t interested in trading for James Harden*
*Adam Silver says he hopes Rockets, Harden address this in-house, act professionally*

This could be an immediate response by ‘the Beard’ to the Commissioner, concerning what he’s feeling in regards to Silver’s comments.
On the flip-side of things, this could just be a coincidence and Harden just happened to post this at the same time Adam Silver’s comments were recorded.
