Harden - New move will look like a travel; it's not

James Harden finally addressed his rumored falling-out with former teammate Chris Paul, describing the reports as "false talk".

"With the group that we already have and the things we already accomplished, it should be an easy transition for him to be incorporated right in, and things are going to go", Harden said.

Houston has lost to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in two consecutive playoff trips; in 2018 in the conference finals and this past May in the second round. All the negative media stuff that was going on - that wasn't true.

Harden, speaking at a charity event, told the newspaper he wants to spend the rest of the National Basketball Association off-season preparing to play with a new-look Rockets, who acquired Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook in a trade for Chris Paul this month. "And then you've got millions of people believing it", Harden said. "Me and Chris had constant communication and we're good".

Harden acknowledged arguing with Paul on the court but said their disagreements were "just part of basketball", adding that "everybody has that, no matter what level of basketball you're in". "It's a new chapter, but I know he's excited. But for personally, and I'm sure for Chris as well, we didn't pay any attention to it".

Harden described Paul as a positive influence. "He's helped me as a leader, as a mentor, just all that good stuff". It's the business, things don't work out. But he's a great dude.
