The Brooklyn Nets acquired James Harden on Wednesday and everyone on Twitter has lost their minds over the news.
If you were hoping for a quiet Wednesday afternoon, the Houston Rockets have thrown those plans upside down, as the team just finalized a blockbuster deal that will send James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets.
Harden leaving Houston has basically been in the works for weeks now, as he’s made it more than clear he’s not happy with the Rockets and was looking for a fresh start elsewhere. As soon as news of the trade dropped, NBA fans took to Twitter and people are going nuts.
NBA Fans are losing their minds on Twitter following the James Harden trade
The idea of Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant all playing on the same team together surely has Brooklyn fans fired up about the rest of the season. Even the idea of those three taking the floor together should instill fear in the rest of the NBA, as this new ‘Big 3’ could make some serious noise together.
As happy as everyone is in Brooklyn, the Rockets must be ecstatic to have Harden leaving the city. Both John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins called Harden out this week for how he’s handled things thus far this season, saying he’s been nothing short of disrespectful to his teammates.
Now, Harden will look to develop chemistry with Durant, Irving and the rest of the guys on the Brooklyn roster. This blockbuster trade completed on Wednesday will likely be talked about around NBA circles for years to come, especially if the Nets are able to not only win the Eastern Conference, but also bring home an NBA Finals crown.
