couple of days ago, Houston Rockets guard James Harden said some things that he maybe shouldn't have said: he's not worried about Houston losing Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik; he and Dwight Howard are the "cornerstones" of tne franchise; the other guys are "role players or pieces that complete our team." This came shortly after Howard said Parsons' departure "won't affect us at all."

Oooh! Bad blood! Drama! Let's have Parsons and the Dallas Mavericks play the Rockets on opening night!
