Adam Silver was making the media rounds on Monday as the new season draws closer, when he got asked about the James Harden trade request.

During a conference call, Silver touched on the ongoing rift between James Harden and the Houston Rockets.

The NBA Commissioner expressed his hope that Harden and the Rockets will work things out in a professional manner and focus on playing good basketball:

“To the extent that a player is unhappy with his team or a team is unhappy with a player, it’s always the league’s strong view that those matters get handled behind closed doors,” Silver said. “The expectation is everyone is professional.”

Literally minutes after his quote hit the internet, Harden took to Instagram and posted the following image:

It was just earlier in the day when Harden gave a ‘no comment’ answer when asked how he’s feeling about the Rockets’ situation now compared to before training camp.
