The Rockets dropped to 3-6 on the season after losing to the Lakers 117-100. James Harden spoke briefly with the media following the loss.
Harden hasn't been all in this entire season and that's not going to end anytime soon. He seemed to confirm that he wanted out of Houston during his postgame comments.
According to Harden the Rockets aren't good enough to compete with the Lakers and he doesn't think anything can be done to fix that. He walked out after sharing that opinion.

These aren't the words of a guy who seems himself with the Rockets for very much longer. He's out of shape and would much rather be in the club than on the floor. The Rockets would be crazy to try to keep him.
