After the charged departure to Brooklyn, the man and the old man will return tonight for their first meeting with the ex: "Nothing has changed how I feel about the city" • Before the game, the Rockets will set aside the star's No. 13 jersey
A charged encounter with the ex
James Harden will return tonight (Wednesday to Thursday) to Houston for the first meeting since the trade and the well-publicized and charged departure to the Brooklyn Nets.
The man and the old man, who left the team from Texas in early January 2021 after eight years of service, will actually be honored when even before the opening whistle, the Rockets will put his tank top number 13 on the hall ceiling.
"I have given this city quite a bit of love and kindness, and to be honest I still love it very much. So I hope they can show me some love and give me back the same coin," the man and old man said ahead of the exciting arrival with the Hunts, "I will be in Houston for many more years of my career, but things have happened. Now I have other career goals."
"Like I said, everything that happened as part of my trade did not change how I feel about the city," Harden explained. "It's a pity that in the end it just did not go as smoothly as I had planned. "Of other players who have left the Rockets and actually notice that their transition went very smoothly. In any case, I am very excited to get here, this time with the Brooklyn uniform."
The one who continued in that conciliatory tone is the owner of the Rockets Tillman Partita, who is also waiting for the meeting: "Harden will always be a 'Rocket'. They were just amazing. "
