Nearly everyone has weighed in on what transpired for the Brooklyn Nets. After having one of the most talented rosters on paper, it all comes to a crashing halt.
Now, former teammate James Harden shares his reaction to how it all played out after the franchise traded Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
During a conversation with the media, Harden reflected on what it was like when he was in Brooklyn. It sounds like he saw it all coming a mile away and got out as soon as he could.
"I don't look like the crazy one. I don't look like the guy or the quitter… I knew what was going on and I just decided I'm not built for this. I don't want to deal with that. I want to play basketball and have fun."

Something always felt a bit off with the Nets. Especially considering James Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving didn’t play together all that much during their tenure.
Then the drama ensued revolving around Irving and his opinions. Eventually, that led to trade speculation for both him and Durant well after Harden was out of the scene.
Now, the Nets have a thin roster with a multitude of draft picks at their disposal. Meanwhile, all three of their former superstars are on teams competing for a championship.
In the end, it’s kind of cool to hear James Harden’s insight on the situation. Clearly, he saw the problems growing early and got out of it as soon as possible.
