02:22 PM ET 11.07 | It???s been almost two weeks since the Oklahoma City Thunder dealt their reigning NBA sixth man of the year James Harden to the Houston Rockets. Since that blockbuster deal, Harden and the Rockets have been the talk of the NBA. The team has started 2-1 because of James stellar play, with convincing victories over the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks. He currently leads the NBA in scoring at just under 36 points a game, while also contributing 6.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists. He was just named the Western Conference Player of the Week. With the league taking full notice of James Harden and the elite level he???s currently competing at, many turned to the Oklahoma City Thunder and wondered how exactly the team could get let go of such a spectacular athlete with such little fuss. Now that time has passed and the smoke has cleared on the deal, even more details are emerging on what exactly went down between James and Thunder management the night he got traded.
