James Harden finally broke his silence amid all the Nets trade rumors surrounding his name with a cryptic Instagram post. The Houston Rockets superstar has been the main focus of everyone in the NBA on Monday. He reportedly asked for a trade out of Clutch City after eight ring-less seasons. Yet, it seems that Harden is responding to the whirl of speculation with a hard-to-discern post on social media.
On his recent IG story, the three-time scoring champ was seen opening up a bottle of BodyArmor and, interestingly enough, chose to focus on the bottle’s cap. The term ‘cap’ has been used as another way to refer to something as a lie.

With the NBA free agency officially opening its doors earlier today, the gossip around the Rockets has been amplified; numerous personalities seem to want out of H-Town. Of course, Harden has been the biggest name being dropped by media outlets as the possibility of him moving to the Brooklyn Nets to form a superteam with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving came about. But, if our “Insta-vestigation” is accurate, it appears that all these sources haven’t been telling the complete truth.
The 31-year old has been one of the biggest Rockets superstars in recent franchise history and the organization has made it clear that they’re keen on doing whatever it takes to surround Harden with the necessary talent he needs. They’ve thrown in competent bigs like Dwight Howard and Clint Capela to help him in the frontcourt and even tried to pair an elite guard like Chris Paul.
More recently, the Rockets acquired his former teammate in Russell Westbrook but unfortunately, their MVP tandem couldn’t produce silverware.
