Would you expect Harden to receive a positive reception from his former fans? My oldest son (9 yrs old) has not shown much of an interest in sports yet and probably thinks I'm a bit too obsessed with football/basketball (which I am). My youngest son (5 yrs old) is named James and a lefty. When the season started (1st or 2nd game), I was watching a Rockets game and pointed out that the Rockets had just traded for a lefty named James. Now he enjoys watching Rockets games with me and can instantly recognize if Harden is on the court. I like that Harden can help the team in more ways than just scoring but is also (usually) an efficient scorer. He seems to be very likeable and has exceeded expectations thus far. Linsanity has not played that well yet and hopefully it's a matter of his knee working back into shape rather than just not being that good.
