James Harden Now Wants To Play In Shocking Destination

In his continued propaganda tour to somehow try to force the Philadelphia 76ers to trade him, the latest media blast from James Harden is now that he is considering playing in China. 

“Every time I come here, the love is just like ... it’s crazy, you know what I mean? So I feel like they deserve to actually see me come play here. ... Love is always crazy here," said Harden. 

It was there, in China, where earlier this week Harden told a gathering that he'll never play for Sixers GM Daryl Morey again, calling him a "liar." 

Harden's plan, though, could be blocked if he continues his suggested holdout and doesn't report to the Sixers this fall. 

Yes, Harden can become a free agent after the season, but there's actually a clause in the league's collective bargaining agreement that stipulates that if a player in the final year of their contract withholds services (i.e. holds out) for more than 30 days, it's a violation of their contract and they would not be allowed to become a free agent unless his last team "expressly agrees otherwise." 

Do you see Morey granting Harden the ok?
