It appears a bunch of Houstonians are taking the James Harden trade news very badly.
Any time a star player leaves their team to play elsewhere, many fans usually take their old jerseys and burn them.
The i Car Wash in Houston quickly came up with an idea to provide a free car wash for anyone who showed up to “trash” their Harden jersey.
Zishan told ABC 13, “I just love the Rockets. I’m really heartbroken right now, and as soon as I saw the news I said, ‘You know what, enough is enough.’ So now I’m sharing my heartache with you, Houston, taking jerseys, and I’m just having them trash it.”
Mikaeel, Zishan’s son, followed up, “We lost some memorable players like Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook. We had a good team. He forced them off because he didn’t want to share the ball, and now he’s making us pay for it.”
In the four team deal, the Houston Rockets received three unprotected first-round picks from Brooklyn — in 2022, 2024 and 2026 — plus pick swaps in 2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027 as well as Cleveland’s 2022 first-round pick, via the Milwaukee Bucks.
In the Harden trade, Houston also got Victor Oladipo from the Pacers.
