It's funny the flaws you find in a person post-break-up. Last year, I routinely gushed about Harden, hoped to buy his jersey, lamented the trade that sent him packing. Now? I find him obnoxiously arrogant. I think his beard looks ridiculous. I loathe his tendency to flop all over the floor and cry on the exceedingly rare occasion that he does not get a call.
I've untagged our photos together on Facebook, tossed his leftover belongings in the trash, deleted his number from my phone.
Even without Westbrook, and even with all of the shortcomings being displayed by Durant's supporting cast, this series isn't going back to Houston. The Rockets are walking into a hornet's nest on Wednesday, a nest of 18,000 mad Okies intent on imposing their collective will.
There is no longer love lost over Harden and his new team needs to be reminded of their place.
It was over when... Serge Ibaka appropriately short-armed a put-back attempt on the end of a Jackson miss as time expired.
