James Harden and Chris Paul Reportedly Argued About 'Spacing'

James Harden confidently said, "I know exactly what we need to do," in response to a question about what has to be done in order for the Houston Rockets to take the next step in the 2019-20 campaign before two months ago. It was a confident statement from Harden, especially after he just saw his team get eliminated from the playoffs by the Golden State Warriors for a second straight season. At the time, we weren't able to piece it all together, but the 2018 NBA MVP might have been hinting at the idea of moving Chris Paul in the offseason. After trying to make it work for two seasons, Harden and Paul's relationship may have hit the point of no return when the two reportedly got into a "tense" verbal back-and-forth following their Game 6 elimination at the hands of a Warriors team without Kevin Durant. While Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni and forward P.J. Tucker tried to downplay their rumored feud, Houston proved that the organization wasn't satisfied with the team's direction under the Harden-Paul tandem when they traded their veteran point guard and a package of first-round picks for Russell Westbrook.
