Former Rockets star slams James Harden, says he needs hard coaching

robert-reid-nbaThe 2015-2016 Houston Rockets season has been labeled as a disappointing one, as the team got knocked out of the playoffs by the favored Golden State Warriors, 4-1.

The Rockets’ leader James Harden has been getting all the criticism he could get, and recently one more former NBA star added himself to the group.

Robert Reid, a former Houston Rockets star, who played with Moses Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon, Calvin Murphy and Charles Barkley, said Harden doesn’t consider his own team.

“Harden is a tremendous player, but he’s not bringing it for the team,” Reid told KHOU 11 Sports. “I’m sorry, I’m just going to say it. Harden looks after Harden.”

Reid was asked about the direction the team should go and who they can put around Harden.

“The new coach that they bring in here is the one that’s going to have to say ‘I’m the one who gets fired if we don’t win, not you’,” Reid said. “Do you feel lucky? Because your happy-jack behind will be at the end of the bench until you come to this game that we want to play.”

Reid played 10 year for the Rockets, 13 years overall, including for Charlotte Hornets, Portland TrailBlazers and Philadelphia Sixers. He holds career averages of 11.4 ppg and 4.5 rpg in 27.3 mpg. Reid appeared in 919 NBA games.
