Anothet dilemma has hit the Houston Rockets this offseason as reports claimed that Chris Paul and James Harden have “no respect at all” for each other.

The 2018-19 season was a bit rough for the Houston Rockets, not only because the team lost to Golden State Warriors for the second time in the playoffs, but also because the relationship of their stars, James Harden and Chris Paul, has become more bitter after the devastating loss.

Harden and Paul’s current relationship as teammates was described in a report as “unsalvageable,” hinting that the two haven’t really been on good terms at all for a while now. This opens up the previous issue that CP3 is demanding to be traded.

In addition to this, Harden apparently made it clear with the Rockets heads that him and the All-Star point guard can’t be side by side with each other. Sources also claimed that Harden has issued a “him or me” deal right after the Rockets got eliminated in the second round of this year’s playoffs, Yahoo Sports reported.

"There's no respect at all, on either side. They need to get away from one another. Chris doesn't respect James' standing in the league, and James doesn't respect the work Chris has put in to this point,” a source told Yahoo Sports.

Although it appears that the Rockets are likely lose one between Harden and Paul, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey denied the rumors and stated that Paul has not made a trade request.

Paul also has commented on the issue and was surprised by what is being said.

Morey shut down the trade issue and said that the 34-year-old All-Star will play for Houston next season, according to CBS Sports.

Right after the Warriors eliminated the Rockets, insiders claimed that it was Morey who hinted that the Rockets are on its way to reorganizing its roster. It has also been said that only Harden will not be included in trade offers and the rest of the team could be negotiated.

It is hard to predict what will happen to the Rockets next season. In addition, it is hard to tell who among the team is telling the truth.

Regardless of who is honest about these issues, the fact is that Paul is about to get hit by father-time issues anytime soon now that he’s 34. As for Harden, what remains solid is that he is likely to remain a Rocket next season.
