Report: Backups were beating starters, talking trash when James Harden threw ball at teammate
Jimmy Butler, trying to force a trade, famously passed the third-stringers over the starters at a 2018 Timberwolves training session.
James Harden, wanting the missiles to trade him, apparently followed the exercise intensity precedent. He reportedly threw a ball at Houston rookie Jae’Sean Tate during one of several altercations last week.
Except that the context was completely different.
Sam Amick and Kelly Iko from The Athletic:
Sources say the root of Harden's exchange was the nature of an intrasquad scrimmage during Monday's workout. According to a source, the second unit - which included Tate and the DeMarcus Cousins backup center - topped the starters. According to a source, Tate once scored a tough basket against Harden and let him know what prompted the exchange.
Someone's trying to make Harden look bad - and succeed.
