Once again watch Harden say he wants to stay with Thunder

Aug 31, 2012, 4:08 PM EDT

That video is from a Spanish-language broadcast (you’re going to figure that out pretty quickly) and interview with James Harden.

Nothing earth shattering revealed here. He says the Thunder are young and improving.  That they have a real brotherhood. He does pick Kobe Bryant as the best player he’s seen, but he throws in a Durant mention as well.

And he says for about the 346,298th time that he wants to remain with the Thunder after next season. To briefly recap, after the Serge Ibaka deal the Thunder will have to go into the luxury tax area (at least $7 million, maybe more) to secure Harden a max deal next season. If they don’t offer it another team will and they will have to match. It comes down to that. I fully expect the Thunder will let this go until next summer than match the max offer he gets, but it will have to play out. And while it does Harden will keep saying — in every language — how much he wants to be on the Thunder.

    I think he will have to look elsewhere for a max contract after next season unless he becomes LeBron & Kobe all rolled up in one! Or unless the thunder loves him that much!

    Harden should go to Chi town if he can’t get maxed in OKC. Rose and “The Beard” would be nice!

    Please for the love of God let’s not turn this into another LeBron/Melodrama/Dwightmare for the 2012-13 season about if he stays or goes!! There’s been way to many stories on this that all say the same ish…seems like you guys are trying to stir the pot.

    Phoenix has not been shy about hinting that they would love to bring Harden back “home” next year. They need a SG in the worst way and the Phoenix fans absolutely love players like Harden. Hell, we loved Jeff Hornacek for gods sake!

    So he’s stating something he’s said “for about the 346,298th time,” yet you ran another “story” on it. Who’s really being redundant here?
